365 Photography Challenge

365 Photography Challenge

The art of photography is a hobby and a hobby is meant to be pursued. Yes, I take pictures but often I seem to forget that I even have a camera. It sits on a shelf thinking of happier times, and just generally gathering dust. Just of late, though, I`ve received an idea that will require, at least, one picture a day. Amalia, at Second Breakfast, has started a 365 Photography Challenge. This is to take a picture everyday for the whole year; it seems rather daunting, doesn`t it? But when we started I realized that having to take a picture everyday teaches several things. One, it teaches consistency. And two, it teaches how to take quick pictures. Often we don`t have our own sweet time to play around with pictures; and though there is a place for taking  pictures slowly, there is also a place for quick shots. If this sounds interesting to you, by all means join in on the fun! You can post in the comments. Along with Amalia, Amy from Vomiting Chicken and Bethany from Dandelion Pie are also taking the challenge. Since this was the first week, I now have seven pictures to show you.

Day 1: In an attempt to take a picture of a moth I found that the window was much more interesting. Isn’t that a handsome rooster in the background?

Have a great week!
