End of year One...Start of year Two

A year has passed, and I am thankful to be much further with this career path than I was a year ago. A colleague has informed me that he feels I have out-grown my camera. I was quite surprised to hear this information. I thought it would take me at least two years to get to the level I have gotten. The camera's he listed off I felt were out of my league, but not according to him. Once I am able to obtain a flash my my current system, I will begin the research on the next camera.

I almost made my goal. I set out in 2008 to take 1,000 pictures a month. I wanted to have a large assortment of photo's, and be able to learn my camera. Well...I have 10,000 pictures to sort through, fix, delete, and prepare for their future use. It is a daunting task and I am over whelmed. I have also started a new series-two photo's to be taken between 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm. I started it last night and it will continue until December 31, 2009.

I had my first paid photo gig in December, AND I have my first contract for a web design. Lot's of work ahead - oy! Things are progressing well - and I am thankful.

Until then - here are some more photo's to share. They were taken at a Team Roping in Bristol, TN. If you look into the eye of the horse, you can see my reflection.
