When I think back over the past year, there aren't really any special decorating or craft projects that come to mind, rather the thing that sticks out most to me, in terms of my blog anyway, is how I've really come love photography over the last twelve months. I can see how as the year progressed so did my photo skills...how I've learned to use my camera, work with natural light and improve my compositions, as well as my editing. When I look through some of my earlier posts, I cringe, thinking I'd love to delete them, but then figure that it's all part of the journey...right?
I've mentioned a time or two that I have a special fondness for photographing food. It's more than a fondness actually, I really love it. Maybe it's because I can eat the fruits of my labor when I'm all done, you can't do that with a craft project...usually anyway :) I talked about food photo love in my Artful Blogging article, as well as in a post I did last summer called A New Little Love, which is where I showed you these first two pictures.
Coming in a close second to my love affair with food photography, are taking pictures of flowers and little vignettes, with a few shots of my house thrown in the mix. I wish I could add snapping photos of my kids, but sadly they're not too accommodating and I usually have to resort to bribery. I've got my fingers crossed that the coming year will be better though.
I thought I'd take a little stroll down memory lane, highlighting a few posts from 2011. There's a link to each accompanying post in case you're a new reader or you missed something and want to check it out.
I want to thank you all for your friendship and kind comments throughout the past year. I hope 2012 brings you only joy and blessings. Have a safe and wonderful New Year's weekend!
