I've started a new project for myself. Not chickens (yet!). I saw this on a photography website I sometimes read and thought I'd apply it to myself: Project 365. The idea is to take one picture a day for an entire year. I decided to start before January 1 because I have some other projects in the works and don't want to overwhelm myself. So far, I'm enjoying it, and it has really made me think about what I'm doing with my camera. I've already missed one day, but hey, sometimes life gets in the way. There is a link on my sidebar to my project, and all I can say about it is that it is a work in progress. The chicken is my favorite picture I took yesterday... see what I mean?
I'm seriously considering selling my camera I have now and upgrading. If anyone is in the market, here are the details.
Canon Rebel 300D with 18-55mm lens (no scratches on lens, camera in great condition-always in a bag, etc.), remote shutter release, the battery charger (and a new battery I bought in July), a new 4GB CF memory card, a three month old Lowepro all weather camera bag. You can get everything above (in the same condition- they don't make my camera anymore, so you can only get used), for $470 from Amazon. . Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, have questions, or want to make me an offer.
