Project 52 was a big success for me in 2012.  I focused on pictures taken with my smartphone (Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III).  I successfully took at least one picture a week last year.  It such a great snapshot of our year that I am so glad I stuck with it for the entire year.

This year, I am once again doing Project 52.  But this year, I will be working on stretching myself a little more.  I have a membership at Clickin’ Moms.  And I have joined their Project 52 group.  Each week has a theme and I am going to work to take a picture that goes with the theme so that I am improving as a photographer.

That being said, I don’t know if my first photo actually fits the them of “New Year”.  But I am actually very happy with the photo I took.  I actually went back to one of the first places I took pictures when my Canon XS was brand new cause I love sunset photos and this place provides a great location.

This sunset photo was taken at Lake Okeechobee near Port Mayaca.  If you enjoy a good sunset, this is a great place to go.  I am pretty happy with the way this photo turned out.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

The theme for week two is Silhouettes.  I’ve never attempted to take a silhouette photo, so lets hope it turns out okay.
