Between the holidays and not feeling up to par. I need to really make a effort to get back into the swing of taking some photo's. This group has some outstanding photographers within it, and I'm proud to be a part of it.

As any photographer already knows that every image can't be perfect, but the only way to perfection is to practice, practice, practice.And even if you don't feel your work isn't perfect there always will be somebody else that will see your image as perfect.

But never let yourself become consumed with trying to get that perfect image, as amateurs never forget to just have fun taking pictures. You can try so hard sometimes that you will miss that perfect image looking the other way. Always try to take your time and explore new places while out taking shots. And remember to look around you before you snap that image , there maybe another image just over your shoulder that you could be missing.

I'm by no means a pro but I like to think of myself as a good amateur. And there are so many good amateurs in this group. Don't ever think of yourself as anything less than that.

Looking forward to 2009 I plan on getting out more than I have in recent months, so you can plan on seeing some more of my images here. I hope that each of you will do the same thing, if you haven't been as active as you once were.

I also would like to try and get some of the members who share their work here to get together sometime. To go out together and shoot some images, not to see who takes the best image. But just to spend a day doing what we all have in common, a love for photography. If your interested in doing this, just reply back here and we will work out a date to get together as a group.

I think this is a great ideal, it might help us all to learn and do better at taking great pictures

I think a photowalk is a great idea. Thanks again for all the great contributions to the group, guys.

Glad to see some sort of response, not sure about you two. But I'm thinking maybe we can get together once the weather is more suitable. With the temps being what they have been lately, one would have to really bundle up. And that would make somewhat cumbersome when taking pictures at least for me.

Let me know what you think or how you feel about getting out anytime soon. The forecast for the latter part of next week is suppose to warm up but with showers.
