A Year in Pictures

I recently bought myself a camera.  It’s a Sony a390 coupled with a Tacoma 18-200mm lens.  My mom challenged me to take (at least) a picture a day for a year.  I’ll be posting the pictures in batches here on my blog and archiving them on this page.  Though all these photographs, you’ll end up catching glimpses of my life, the things and people I love, and how my photography skills are progressing!  Enjoy!
