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!

20 / 365 Around the bend...

I have stared down this canal a million times, but I have never bothered to walk down and take a peek to see what lays around the bend... In the summer time it's full of water, kids grab there inner tubes and actually float down the canal! I know this is where they get in... but I have no idea where they get out! I will have to go back this summer and take some photos of the kids enjoying it during the warm weather!

Also, I too played with textures today, I loved what it added to this photo! Thanks to Chelsea, at Camera Craze 365 for the inspiration and to Kim Klassen for her amazing and simple tutorial! Make sure you check it out!

Marcie, this shot is awesome! I love how the yellows and redish hues pop out against the blue sky. Maybe this summer you can tube down it to see what's around the bend! ;)

That is beautiful! I love how it leads to the mountains in the background. I agree, you should go tubing this summer! That sounds like fun!

This is beautiful! Crazy to think it's full of water but definitely get a shot in the summer. It'll be fun to see the difference! :)
