You can never go back and start a new beginning,
but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
The end of one year and beginning of another makes us look back at where we have been and look ahead to where we are going. 2010 has been quite a year. I started the year with a goal of a picture a day but fell off the wagon somewhere past half way through. Though I wasn't successful in completing the project I learned a tremendous amount and my camera and about myself. I overcame my self-consciousness of shooting in public places and learned to embrace the details of life's little beautiful moments.
I captured my kids. Sometimes in obvious ways, other times more creatively. I cherish all of these images of them today and know I will only love them more as the years pass and the memories of who they once were grow thinner and harder to recall. One of the strongest things I take forward into 2011 is remembering to capture them. The smiles, the silly, the serious.
In 2010, I was also thrilled with the chance to capture other people. It was an immense pleasure to get a chance to put it all together on people other than my kids.
And speaking of capturing my kids as they are today, here's my boy. He thinks he's so funny. He came over when I was taking the calendar picture and when I would point the camera at him he'd say "cheese!" I never say that so I have no idea where he picked it up from.
From our family to yours, may you be blessed with love and laughter in 2011!
