    2012 Photo Project

    A couple of years ago, Scott Strance on the Two Wheel Texan forum challenged us to do a year long project, archiving our best picture of the day for a year. Whoa! That was intense. Some days really easy and some days not so much. BUT, it resulted in a most gratifying look at a year in my life. It was time consuming and so last year it was my intent to just save my favorite pictures and not be bound by one a day.

    Well, that too was tough, but I enjoyed looking back so much I'm going to give it another go in 2012. I'm really pretty good at January, but after that . . .

    So, here's my start for this year:

    Maybe you'll do the same and share it here?

    The BEST part is that it's your project so you make the rules.

    I love looking back at a year like that.

    Looks like my 2011 Project needs some work:

    Nice photo of the antique aircraft. Somehow I had it in my mind that they were no longer in the inventory.

    what cameras do you like?

    Voni, if I might ask, what is your main camera? Is is a digital SLR?

    I'm thinking of upgrading from my Canon G2.

    thanks,

    It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC - ZS7

    I really LOVE the zoom! And because it's small, it's always with me.

    It's a B52 on a low altitude practice bomb run. Usually we see B1's but occasionally B52's. Moving lots slower so it's easier to photgraph.

    You do get some very nice pics with that camera.

    I'm juggling the concept of retiring soon with the notion of acquiring things while I am still working, and also trying to save for retirement.

    The first year I rode, I did a photo album of our adventures. This has moved to an annual tradition of coffee table books. I use Snapfish and Picaboo which allows me to sort and edit. Then I have them leather bound.

    Just finished looking at your 2010 picture project. Nice project, Voni.

    I really liked your Texas Wildflowers taken on April 22, 2010.

    Looks like they are out right now, but you can order the next update of my camera at a VERY good price here:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    It's not RED, though . . .

    Blue's okay: I have the same color Roadcrafter jacket as your hubby.

    That does look like a great pocket camera for road trips.
