Fun New Goals

So…I’ve been reading blog after blog about photography and I discovered the 365 day project and I’m going to do it! The goal is to take a picture every day for the next 365 days in hopes to improve my skills and to document our life.  I started the project yesterday and I’m posting it to a new blog that is linked to this blog on the right.  It’s called Amber’s 365 day project – imaginative name, I know.  I’m excited about it for more reasons other than improving my skills.  I think taking a picture every day will help me think about each day as its own.  Mike and I have a tendency to live for the next big event…weddings, visitors, trips, etc.  I hope this will help us appreciate the days in between the big events.  Also, I think it will be fun 365 days from now to look back at the year 2010 in pictures in a photo journal of sorts.  So, if you are so inclined, you can hit the link to the right and follow along.

In other news, I’ve also made a list of not so interesting goals: reading 50 books this year, doing sit-ups every day (my BFF Kate inspired me), running 4 days a week at a minimum, blah, blah, blah.  I won’t bore or blog further, but you get the idea.

Finally, I would like to thank my cousin Tyler for designing my new logo! This was his first go at it, and I absolutely love it.  There may be some small changes in the future, but this is the general concept.

Oh, and it’s snowing…again:(

It’s official

I started with a soft opening allowing only Mike, my sister, and my mom to read it.  I think ten people have now at least looked at it, so I think it’s appropriate to declare my blog officially open to the public! The above picture (of a fire hydrant) was taken the first week I had my new digital Canon just over a year ago.  Below are some other pictures I took that day of Kansas City in November.   Thank you to all my new readers/viewers for taking the time to stop by:) 

In other news, my cousin Tyler is designing a logo/stamp thingy that I can put on all of my photos.  If you don’t know Tyler, his picture is in a prior blog below.  He’s also in a band called This is Falling and is working on becoming a designer.  Thanks Tyler!

View of Kansas City from the World War I Museum.  We’ve been to the museum three times.  It’s amazing.  To enter, you walk over a glass floor fifteen feet over a field of poppies. 

Union Station to the left that I love, love, love!

The Western Auto building was converted to lofts.  It’s also shaped like a pie wedge from Trivial Pursuit.
