It's been a month since I started my New Year's Resolution to take a picture of something lovely, daily, recorded at dailylovely.com. It's going pretty well, although I'll be honest - I can't wait for winter to be over so we will have more sunlight and I will have a greater window of daylight time in which to take these lovely photos! But even during the drab days of January, I've been finding inspiration. Here are a few January highlights:
There is so much beauty in every day, even in the dreariest, coldest months. So I am challenging myself to take a photo a day of lovely things in 2012. Big or small. Grand or mundane.
This might not sound like such a difficult resolution to keep for a photographer, but sometimes I get wrapped up in planning what I want to photograph that I am not paying enough attention to what is photo-worthy right in front of me. And there is plenty of that to be had every day.
At the beginning of 2011, I resolved to do two things: schedule more time for myself, and make sure I start planning for the holidays early so I can enjoy the season instead of having to bustle around trying to get everything in order. I think I did a good job of keeping both of those resolutions. For 2012, I do have one creative resolution that I'm pretty excited about, but I'm going to hold off on sharing it for a bit until I am sure I can commit to it!
