52 weeks

The snow came down in huge cotton ball flakes this morning. Tristan said it looked like it was snowing bread. He was dressed to play before I even made it to the metro section or a second cup of coffee but I'm glad we all followed his lead and got outside. It was a fun couple of toe-numbing hours.
home ~ winter 2011
While we were outside, I took a few pictures with the 50mm lens I am determined use more of. I want to improve my skills with the lens, but I have to admit, part of the motivation comes from the fact that it is SO much lighter than the 18-200 I usually lug around.
I decided to join in the MCP Project 52 this year. I look at my photos and see a lot of the same shots, same angles, same subjects, same PSE actions and I think I'm boring myself. The project guidelines are fairly broad, the suggested themes optional, and the purpose just what I need -get out of the rut.
You can join the group HERE or follow my set HERE.
So here's to 52 weeks of photos! I don't even know where we'll be living this time next winter so it's sure to be an interesting year.


  1. Your pictures are seriously not boring. I think you have lots of creative juices, so this should make them even juicier!!

  2. captivating pic of the house, tree, snow and berries!
    You are an artist!

  3. So glad to see this post. I feel the same way about my work -- until I find something new. I'm going to check out your links!

  4. Love the picture of the house & tree. I bought that lens just before Fiona was born, and I have not taken it off since. Love it! I just might join up- I don't have any trouble taking a pic/week, but getting them posted in a timely manner might be tricky. I seem to have misplaced my free time...
