I couldn't decide which is the best. Here are my three favorites. I'm leaning towards the first as the best. 

 

What do you think?

Weißwurst (white sausage), pretzels, sweet mustard and beer – this is typical Bavarian food, normally eaten as a snack between breakfast and lunch.

The time has almost arrived.

 

It is the day before Christmas Eve. 

 

Here are some of our gifts...those not being brought by Santa Claus of course.

Alps

6/365

Today my husband and I headed south to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.  A beautiful quaint town nestled in the Alps.  

 

There were so many picturesque views - from the mountains, to the builds, Christmas market, cafés and people - but as an amateur it was difficult to capture it the way it should be. 

 

Here is the one I think came out the best.

Fountain

Went out for an evening shoot. Decided not to bring my tripod with me into the city, and regret it. 

 

I have an extrenal flash as well as a built in, but prefer not to use them. Instead adjusting exposure, white balance, timing or if need be ISO. However naturally in evening or night light it becomes difficult to hold still for several seconds. 

 

Nonetheless, here is the least blurry picture from the whole evening. What do you think?

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas...

OK, slowly the few things I know are starting to come back. Plus apparently wearing my glasses does make a difference. 

 

Pretty sure this will be a major theme the next seven days.

Project 365: First Days

I am a passionate snapshot-taker looking to grow into a photographer.

 

I’m currently shooting with a Canon 550D, limited with editing possibilities only working with standard programs – no fancy stuff (yet).

 

I have been obsessed with photography since I can remember, but until this point haven’t funneled my interest into anything other than random pictures. Thanks to the support of my husband last year I have since take a few classes and have now decided to dig deeper, feed my obsession and get focused (no pun intended).

 

So now at the age of 31 my journey starts.

 

Through inspiration of a dear friend of mine, Madalena http://mypersonalcoffeebreak.com/, I have decided to take part in Project 365. This is my first blog, and first blog post. Bear with me in this new learning process.

 

I started on December 17, 2013 and for the next 365 days I will take a picture(s) every day.

 

I will start out with daily posts. However time will tell whether that is doable or if weekly posts will be more realistic.

 

Here are the first two days, first two pictures for my project.

I am looking forward to your comments and feedback, and improving my photography skills one day at a time.
