Well - seven weeks later I have to say that I haven't quite followed through. At the beginning I did take at least one photo each day, but as the year progressed I couldn't catch up anymore. Instead of feeling guilty, however, I did give myself permission to take it easy and that it is perfectly okay if I have only three or four photos for an entire week. Although the challenge of taking a photo each day was interesting and, yes, a real challenge, it took out the fun of photography for me - and that is simply too high a price.
What I will do, however, show you my favorite photo of each week on Sundays - starting today with my favorites of the first seven weeks.
Week 1 - the magnolia in my neighbor's front yard, shot on January 2nd.
Week 2 - yummy red wine
Week 3 - pink waves at the Northern California coast near Jenner (Goat Rock State Beach)
Week 4 - California Towhee
Week 5 - tree trunks
Week 6 - planting pots in my garden, drying out
Week 7 - a detail on one of the bunkers along Conzelman Road on the Marin Headlands, just north of the Golden Gate
Are you taking any photo challenges this year?
