Well with 2015 rolling in, I guess I'm starting another Project 365! I certainly hope I will be able to complete it this time! Something always gets in the way of taking a pic a day, and then I get discouraged and hang up the camera for awhile. I start these projects to help me become a better photographer....practice makes perfect, but then get stressed when the day goes by and I haven't taken any shots! Another reason for this project is forcing myself to get out and explore and challenge myself everyday. Hopefully I can get some healthy exercise out of it too! The biggest problem is downloading the pics and blogging, so I will not stress myself out about posting each and everyday. If I can, I will, but it'll probably wind down to once a week, and then I might take the best shots of the week to show. Sometimes I get desperate and snap pics of anything or selfies that are a waste of time posting.

My husband was "in" for New Year's Eve but was tired from working a 28 hour day the day before, so we went to bed early. Of course, our neighborhood didn't and i was woken up with the occasional fireworks. I could tell when it as midnight cause it sounded like the worst ever thunderstorm! As I looked out the window I could see the light flashes and decided to go out with my new Amazon Fire Phone to shoot a few shots. We do live in the woods and I went out with my nighties on trying to shoot between the trees. Not so successful, but I did get to try out my new phone and the video side too. I'm not very good at taking pics with phones or small digital cameras that don't have eye holes. I need my face to steady the camera! AND trying to take shots of fireworks through trees is crazy too!
Later in the day, I took my Lensbaby out and shot some pics while doing laundry.
