I am taking on the daunting task of taking a picture every day for a year. I'm on day 18 and believe me.. it's not as easy as it sounds. I'll be posting the pics on the 365 Photo Project site, my Flickr account, and on facebook, so feel free to follow my progress.
I'm hoping this challenge will help me to be diligent about being behind the camera daily. I love being behind the camera, but there are days that become too busy and the camera goes untouched. Sometimes those days turn into weeks. Picking up the camera daily helps me become very familiar with my instrument, helps me sharpen my skill, helps me train my eyes to see things with different perspective and forces me to be creative. Being behind the camera is also a time of worship for me. A quiet time for me to spend with the Lord. A time for me to acknowledge him as magnificent creator and praise him for the works of his hands. It's amazing how much beauty you see with one eye closed and the other looking through that little square box. Beauty that may have otherwise gone un-noticed or taken for granted in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Hopefully I'll prove to be a better daily picture taker than blogger. :)
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities- all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things and in him all things hold together." Colossians 1: 15-17
