This is the last day of 2010.  This also concludes my year long photo blog project.  The past 12 months have brought Stacie and I to many different places and we have experienced adventures that have enriched our lives and brought us much enjoyment. We started the year surrounded by family and we’ve spent the last week of it graced with their presence as well.  One year of captured pictures is worth a lifetime of experiences and memories.  I learned a great deal about taking pictures, writing, and about myself.  I learned that the automatic setting on the camera is a good place to start but manual is the way to better color and exposure.  I learned that sitting in front of a keyboard and writing about life, weather, or the events of the day is not as easy as it sounds.  I learned that my self-imposed rules about this project were key to its success and I never wavered from them (I only used pictures taken on that day and I wrote about it...Every Day!).  I learned that I had a voice in this world even when no one was listening.  I realized during the course of the year that the importance of what I write lies within me.  I chose images for each day by the same process that I determine what I like.  I can't tell you what I like, I just know when it is right.  It has been a great pleasure to take up some space on the Internet and even though my Journey Around The Sun has concluded I look forward to breathing life into a new venture centered around my favorite past time.  Geocaching.  It is my hope that this undertaking greeted you each day with a fresh perspective and brought you laughter or just something to ponder.  Where did your journey take you this year?
