Black and White

The challenge of taking a photo each day (and for me reflecting and documenting them) is supported by this article from the Digital Photography School.
If you let yourself play with your camera for just 10 minutes a day, you’ll feel different and see the results right from day one. Remember that you learn your camera in order to forget it’s there, so you can focus on your photos.

This self-tutoring plan is based on natural human curiosity, and on the fact that muscle memory can do a better job than brain memory in performing manual tasks, such as setting the desired shutter speed. Once you have created a link between your vision, and the finger that turns a dial, or presses a button on your camera, it will stay in that finger’s muscle memory for good. Then, next time you think about that function, it will happen magically by itself.

The choice of shots included the view from my kitchen window- the fire escape on the building near by.

My brushes stand which is a sugar mold. And one could hardly resist some of my snow domes :)
