Sunrise over the Potomac River, day 1 of 2012.

New Year Sunrise

In past years I’ve seen people make a commitment to post a new picture every day for a year (some stayed with it, some dropped out) and I’ve thought about trying that myself. So, 2012 is my year and this image is day one.

Of course, one reason for this project is to improve my photography skills (I have several friends who totally outclass me in this department so getting even slightly better will be a personal achievement), but I also need to be reminded that I’m carrying at least one of three cameras at all times, so why not use them?

Having made the jump, here’s a small weasel. I’ll be posting a new image daily but it may not be one taken that day. And most of them will not appear in a post like this one, only in my Flickr photostream (if you want to check up on me).

Anyway, we’ll see how long this lasts and whether anything actually improves in the picture department.
