twenty six on friday -week one- view from up here

As photographers, we are always looking for ways to challenge ourselves. This year I am taking on an exciting new challenge, a 26 week project. It is similar to the 52 week project most of you are familiar with, except this year we are working on techniques along with our themes. Our themes for our 26 week project will be more thought provoking, so it will be fun to see the different interpretations. I am working along with 11 other AMAZING photographers, 6 of my favorite photographers from my last group and 6 crazy talented new ones, who will be challenging me as the year goes on. Each month we will have a different technique we are working on, and each week we will have a new theme.
For the month of January, our technique is unique lighting and today our theme is “view from up here”. After you see my picture, be sure to continue clicking through the different photographers links so you can see the complete circle. Be sure to come back in 2 weeks to see our next theme, you don’t want to miss it!

My image today is pretty literal to the theme. This is the view from my Mom’s place in Buenos Aires where we have been staying for the last 3 weeks. I can not think of a better way to start this project than with a picture of one of the many breathtaking sunsets we got to see during our wonderful vacation in the city where I grew up.

Happy 2012 to everyone!

Next up is the talented Elizabeth Ross | Tyler, TX Newborn, Baby and Child Photographer.
