Picture a Day | Week 1

There are two recurring themes in every book or article I read about improving your photography skills and that is to take your camera everywhere you go and practice, practice, practice. There is a community out there in blog land called The 365 Project where people with a passion for photography hone their skills and document otherwise forgotten moments in their life by committing to take a picture a day for a year.  Someday I would love to do that, but at this time in my life I have too many other responsibilities, priorities, interest, etc to take that on.  However,  I think I can commit to a picture a day for a week and then who knows, maybe I can do additional weeks in the future.  Even a week of focused picture taking will help me improve my skills.  My goal is not to search out amazing subjects but to take pictures of everyday items and/or activities in my life, working on the lighting and composition provided at the moment.

Here are the results of my first week.
