The 365 Journey

Inspiration is what has motivated me to take on such a creative commitment such as this in 2011! I followed one of the most amazing 365 photo bloggers last year and I was blown away at the growth, not only in her technique but her creativity as well. Through her blog, I was allowed to follow her through some of the most wonderful, stressful and emotional times that the year brought. What a fabulous way to document a "year in the life" of any individual! I am so excited to take this journey, to see what life may bring, and to enjoy the wild ride the next 365 days will bring. I hope you will enjoy it too!

11 / 365 The Back Road

Today was one of the first days in a long time that I have seen blue sky, so I decided I would take a little drive after I dropped my youngest off to preschool and see if I could take advantage of the weather! I headed over to a local park that I love to photograph at, but I didn't really find to much that interested me... on my way home I decided to take my favorite little back road, it winds and curves, and it gives you a beautiful view of the valley we live in. As I drove it today, this little abandoned barn caught my eye. I loved it! The shanty looking roof, the rust stains, the old fence, the color of the blue sky popping behind it and the long shadows the early morning sun was casting on the snow in front of it! It felt so good to get out and actually enjoy one of these cold January days!

I love it, too! It has wonderful clean colors. I'm gonna have to make an effort to find interesting places to photograph. My children are gonna get tired of me in their face.
