A Year Long Committment

A Year in Photos

On the first day of Summer 2013 I thought it would be fun to post a photo on Facebook every day of the season. And on the first day of Autumn I thought, "Why not keep going?". A daily photo was a daily habit and I came to look forward to taking a good picture for the day. I found it a worthwhile exercise in composition, contrast and  picking good subject matter.
Autumn became Winter and then it was a given that I must finish the year. I have two more days left till Summer begins again. And a visual memory of a year in my life.
