At the beginning of this year I decided to make a few goals, and for once take them seriously… ha ha.  I usually think about some general goals, but always thought people who make goals at the beginning of the year never finish them.  I’m more of the make goals as you need them kind of person.  Well this year I am making some New Year’s Resolutions.  One of those is to become more creative with photography, along with a go back to basics kind of thing.  I am going to take an ordinary item and through the year photograph  and edit it as differently and creatively as possible. 

I know a lot of people make 365 goals, or 52 goals, this is more of an as much as I want kind of goal.  Winking smile   

I chose an old bottle that I found in a field for my object, nothing special, not to old or too new.  After photographing it for the first time though, I decided that I would make this more of a general theme instead of one object (because what if I am on vacation, or on a mountain or….)  So my theme for 2011 is GLASS.  Smile  I am really, really excited!! 

Join me if you like, choose a theme, object, objective for 2011, and share if you like.  It is always inspiring to see the way someone else interprets something.

So here is to the year of GLASS.

I put water, oil and food coloring in the bottle.



In this next picture the bottle is on top of the little box.  I loved the way the sun flare looked coming through the glass.

It is so important to keep progressing and it I think you hit the nail on the head with choosing a theme and forcing yourself to look at it in every way possible. I have also been thinking of a reasonable goal for this year. One that will challenge me, but also one that I feel like I will be able to feel successful in. A theme centered goal sounds awesome and I going to think about it some more and see what inspires me.

Your images are great and I can wait to see what you come up with. Thanks Kristi!
