Spent a lovely morning with coffee and a new friend. In her back yard was an old one-room "hut" that at one time housed a "hippy" couple and their child. Nifty 50mm - f/5.6 @ 1/200 ISO 200 overcast morning

I recently joined the forum for The New York Institute of Photography - and in reading many of the topics available to the photography enthusiast, I stumbled across a fellow student (Dee) that was issuing herself a challenge: to take at least one photograph a week and submit it to her forum friends for review. Sounds easy right? Not so much. First off, many of us taking the class are living in two worlds. The world of families and work; deadlines and diapers (or barn chores, as is my case). There are times when it is just not feasible to pick up a camera, or finish a lesson. There there is the Photography. The passion to capture this world that moves by us, faster by the day, and share it with others. So - we challenge ourselves - and others - to make it happen.
