I thought I might have a better sense of what I wanted to do this year with the blog, but so far, nothing has really jumped out at me. I probably will not be posting everyday like I was, but I am planning to post something about three times a week-maybe more if time allows. As for the direction, I will still be experimenting with the iPhone, but I think I will also be picking up my DSLR more this year as well. I sold my Nikon D50 and some other camera equipment towards the end of the year and now have a new DSLR which I have been working with–as a friend remarked, I have gone back to the dark side with a new Pentax K5 IIs with a 35 mm prime lens. What is also great is that my old Pentax K1000 lenses fit this camera too, so I have more to work with-
The photos here are of an Amaryllis plant I received for Christmas. I love these flowers-they are so sculptural and their color is brilliant. I have been photographing the plant from the time I got it and as it began to bloom. I will be most likely photographing others in the coming week or so as well. I have also been experimenting more with Stackables and Alayer, an app that was offered for free over the weekend.
