365 Project - 52nd Week

Happy New Year!!! 

Yippee!!! I can't believe the end of the year is finally here!!!  A whole year and my 365 project is complete. It's been both fun and frustrating.  On the plus side, my photography has improved a bit and I learned a lot more about PhotoShop Elements and my camera. There's still lots to learn in both areas.

As for this blog, I will still be posting photos here as time goes by, but it's going to be more ad hoc, at least at first.  As I said in my last post I'll be working on putting my shots into a book, which take some time to do.  I'll keep you posted.  

In the coming year, I hope to continue working on my photography. I've recently got a number of photography books that should help with the taking the photos and using my camera properly. I also subscribed to a online magazine for Photoshop Elements, which should improve my post-processing skills. It was a little pricey, but comes with some tutorial software that should be quite helpful. I'm sure some of the information was available for free on the internet, but I liked having all of the information together on one site that's well-formatted. Hopefully, it's going to be useful and not a waste of money. Now, I just have to set aside some time each week so that I can go over that information and practice.

I'd like to thank those people who visited this blog and offered encouragement. It really helped me to finish this project. Your comments mean the world to me.  

Anyway, here are the photos for the 52nd week of my 365 project, the last ones:

Clicking on the photos will take you to larger versions on Flickr. I've yet to add any explanations on there, though.  If you want more of an explanation on any of them, just ask...either here or over on Flickr.  ;)

  1. Dear Marie - well done on completing the project. I am a great admirer of your photos, some are a complete mystery to me as to how you achieved them. The 365 for example. Love the photo of the prairie, and the bark on the silver birch is worthy of a frame to hang it on the wall.

    1. Oh, Rosemary, You are so kind to me. Thanks so much.

  2. Congrats on completing the project, Marie!
    I've loved following your project.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
