Time flies, and I have seven weeks of my 52/50 Project to share, but even more amazing---there are only five weeks left for the project! I need to find a new photography project for 2014. I'm signed up for the Still Life Photography course with Cheryl McCain but I know that will be difficult when we're traveling. I'd like a weekly project---one that requires me to do more than take a daily shot with my iPhone and something that challenges me to improve my photography. If you come across something, I'd love to hear about it.
Week 41 found us in Niagara-on-the-Lake for a weekend of wine tasting and theater. Grapes were still heavy on the vine.
The following week (#42) we were in Florida. I walked around the Boca Raton Resort and Club with my 50mm lens one morning and found lots to photograph. This gorgeous flower is one of my favorites.
Most of the photos I took in Key West and the Everglades were with my 18-270mm zoom lens, but I finally remembered to get the 50mm lens on as we drove home through the Blue Ridge Mountains at the end of Week 43.
Technically this isn't the best shot from Halloween (Week 44), but it's my favorite. Skylar was a fabulous bumblebee.
Week 45 found me in our yard. Our relatively new maple tree was in the midst of changing colors.
Tracy and I have been trying to get several good walks in every week while the weather is still good. (I think we may be at the end of that. We had 2-3 inches of snow this week, and the temperatures are hovering around freezing at their highest!) During Week 46 we walked through Highland Park, one of our favorite routes.
Last week (Week 47) we were trying to find a new route and went to the Cobb Hill Reservoir. We walked through the woods first, but I didn't find much there to photograph. The leaves have fallen off the trees, and it was pretty drab. I liked the light on the reservoir through the bars, though, and decided to do a black and white conversion which I also like.
With the upcoming holidays, a wedding, and a quick trip to Chicago in early December, finishing up this project should be pretty easy. Then I'll have to decide what to do with all the photos.
