Back to those new year’s “commitments” I mentioned earlier in the week. An important one reads as follows: “Capture beauty, details, and emotion in images, just for me.” As I looked back through my images for 2009, I found lots of great images, but almost all were taken for someone else, for some specific purpose.
I considered attempting to do a 365 project – an image a day, every day. Usually it involves capturing, processing and uploading an image every day – and that is just not going to happen. So instead, I am making a point to grab images when I can, to have a camera with me on drives or when doing the everyday stuff, and to stop when I see something that grabs me, whether it be magical light, interesting clouds, or something funny the kids are doing. And it doesn’t need to be with the serious cameras. The point and shoot or my phone camera will work too.
I haven’t figured out how and where I may share these. I’m throwing them up here and there for the time being, but I will get it all organized as some point.
The scene above was shot this morning on a drive in the Macedon area of Wayne County, with my Canon G10. I was struck by the old windmill, and the interesting contrast to the high-tech wind turbines I’d seen yesterday south of Naples.
