In a smallish, sideways manner, I wanted to go ahead and tell you about my new project.
Before you visit it, I want to tell you that it is still under construction. I mean, really completely under construction.
Mindy (my sister-in-law) and I have decided to do a photography project - a 52 project, to be exact. We both love to take pictures and I think committing to taking one picture every week this year is a really good way to make sure I'm still taking pictures when life gets too busy.
Who am I kidding? My life is always too busy.
I've already decided that I won't be doing any "photo shoots" this semester. I don't have a passion for portrait photography (unless I know you, then I really love to take your picture!) and I just have too many irons in the fire. But I was afraid I'd put my camera down and forget about it for a while. Having a project like this helps me remember to do what I really love to do with a camera - just take pictures of what's around me and what I love.
Some of you have asked me in the past about whether I would ever sell prints. My answer has always been something like, "Maybe someday. But I'm not really a photographer, see?" But my answer to that may be changing. I think that could grow out of this project. Eventually.
We are calling ourselves Two for Joy, and for now, it's just a fun blog (that is totally not all-the-way set up but I couldn't wait any longer to show you).
Just two girls. Two girls who love to take pictures. And that's enough.
