52 Week Photo Challange

A friend of mine on Facebook posted a photography challenge from over at PetaPixal.  I like the set up and feel it might give me some more practice with my camera.  I'm also hoping to home my skills by reading more tutorials online for how to set up photos better.  Once a month (hopefully) I'll share my photos here.  If you "know me" on Facebook, you've already seen these.

 Week 1:  A Selfie using the timer on the camera. 
 Week 2: A Landscape. 
 Week 3:  Something Red
Week 4: A Selfie of someone else (My sweet pooch!) 

One thing this challenge has caused me to do is to be on the lookout for great photo opportunities.  I'm working on looking within our daily lives instead of thinking "oh I wish I could go 'here' and get a shot (i.e. the lakeshore, a light house, the frozen waters of Lake Michigan) 

My goal is to complete all 52 weeks and then turn these photos and the stories into a coffee table book to enjoy!
