“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
— Ansel Adams


One year seems like it flashes by but also can hold a lot of different memories. But each new year brings a fresh start and hope that our journey down this road is always a great ride.

As I look back each New Year I've either chosen a few resolutions and stuck with them for a few weeks or didn't choose any at all and enjoyed being lazy. For 2015 I've decided to create a few fresh goals and use this starting line to begin working on them (despite me adding more goals as time goes on).

1st: cycling has become a fun adventure, so I'll be working harder and sign up for at least one event this year (hopefully more - and most likely one that raised money for charity since its more rewarding than winning a race).

2nd: I'd like to begin pursuing my masters degree, which I've said since getting my undergrad. Currently I'm looking at focusing on marketing, wéll see.

3rd: Take on photo challenges! I've chosen two challenges to take on starting now, a 52 week challenge to choose a theme and shoot around that theme that week. And my second is the 100 people challenge; where I can work on stepping outside my introverted comfort zone and ask 100 random people if I can take their photo. Let's see how I do. I'll be sure to post frequent updates on here and also soon will post the article I found these challenges on in a later post, which is from a blog that every photographer should follow. 

Anyway, all this to say 2015 will be a great year to look forward to and I hope we all find ways to continue to grow where ever is needed. May the new year bring you a fresh start and many blessings!
