Well, I made it so far….one month successfully fulfilling the commitment to take and post one photograph a day.  Was I successful as a photographer in capturing what a photograph should capture?  Well, YOU be the judge.  I am glad that I made it through 1/12th of the year!

Was it a challenge?  Yeah….some days I struggled to find something to take for that day or I had gotten so busy during the day and evening I got distracted.  Sometimes, I made technical errors.  But for now, to have actually followed through with something, is a triumph.

Now we begin afresh with a whole new month ahead.  Who knows…being Valentine’s month, maybe I will find a common theme of love or romance. We will see for that is tomorrow and tomorrow is only a dream.  Right now, I must find my bed for today is reality.

Good night.

January 30, 2010This may not have been my BEST shot taken during my morning hike at the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy but I did feel it was the most comical.  It is a simple, lowly cactus of some species but THIS one, I am sure, was created by Jim Henson. It was literally watching me either with the attempt of being the little tiny monster with big dreams of protecting the desert or the forgotten little plant-animal that needs someone to love him like that tale of the frog and the princess.

My wife says it reminds her of an animal with human qualities …. and it isn’t even an animal.

What started out to be a low tire pressure, suddenly became a $600 set of four new tires! Ugh!
