For those of you that have been following the blog, I hope it was an entertaining and educational year. I know I learned a lot, experimented quite a bit and enjoyed the experience of following a text as part of the process. I am also glad to have been a part of this great network of photographers.
The 52 Weeks Project starts all over again next week, and in 2017 we are leaving all book work and going to suggested themes from group members. I love challenging myself this way, and seeing what others have done and how they interpret each week.
This week's theme--Holiday--had me looking back over all of the photos I have done over the course of the last month, as well as in the past. I haven't even gotten around to editing some of my own, personal family photos. Hopefully, when the dust settles from New Year's Eve, I will be able to sit back and work on all of the family photos and pet photos that are lurking in an on line folder and calling my name.
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays for photos because there are so many things that can make a photo festive. I thought I would do a small slide show of some of the photos I have taken during the holiday season, not only in this year, but in the past as well. You may recognize a few from previous blog entries or my Facebook page (but I may have embellished or added things to them since you last saw them), and some are new. The last photo of the slideshow is a brightly painted photo of our cat, Dilly, who is no longer with us. He was one of the best cats ever, so I wanted to include him.
