This blog captures my journey to take a break from jewelry designing to learn something new. Join me as I learn the art of photography and Photoshop Elements and watch me create through my lens. ~ Dee

366 Day Challenge!!

Well, it's on!  I've officially started the 366 365 day challenge.  Yeah, I know it's a leap year, but I figure I'm going to need at least one day of break, may as well count it in now.  This challenge isn't anything new, and I definitely didn't come up with it on my own, but the idea came up in my photography group and who am I to miss out on a challenge.  My goal will definitely be to finish the challenge, but I'll be the first to may get in the way.  So, what is the challenge and why am I doing it?

If you've been following from the beginning, you already know this blog is about my journey to learn more about photography.  This challenge will not only encourage me to actually pick up my camera every day, but it will force me to use it creatively and for a purpose.  It's just like learning to skate (here I go again with my metaphors), if you practice every day, you can only get better and better.  Then you start learning to do new tricks, and more new tricks and before you know're in the olympics!!  That idea may be a little over the top, but hopefully you get my point.  

I'll be posting photos here on occasion, but my main format will be through flicker. If you're interested in keeping up and holding me accounting, you can find my photo set here.  I've also put a button at the top of this page with the link that will remain there for easier access.   Just to get started, below are photos taken the first two days of 2012:

Day 1 
 I have two photos from the first day, I actually posted this one to my group and prefer it much better.  My focus was to capture the spirit of an angel.    

Day 2
The challenge today was just finding something else to take a picture of.  I settled on focusing in on something I, with a little out of focused grapes in the background.  

Lesson Learned:
I'm going to have to get more creative to make it through this challenge. 

Unveiling in challenges,


  1. Hi Dee,

    I started a blog and will try to do 365 (a photo a day), but don't know how long I'll keep it up. :-) Are you still doing it?

  2. Hi Phu, yes I am, I'm only posting here occassionally, but most of my photos will be on flicker, just haven't uploaded in a couple of days.
