I can't leave a comment now Pat cause I deleted my blog.. I felt like I was paying more attention to it than getting out and shooting and then It was all about posting one a day instead of really taking time on the shots... I dont want you to quit posting ice pics I LOVE your pics!!! Great captures!

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

I'm up.

Daily Photo Blog

Jennifer, I hear you on the stress that the need to post a daily picture can cause and how it can influence the way you take shots. I've felt some of the same.
I think I decided to deal with it by not holding myself to post today's picture, today.

Somedays I get a few shots that I quite like, other days I am stuck at home with nothing much to photograph or, what I try that day doesn't really work out, and I have nothing I want to share.

So I've decided that I will try to post something everyday, but it may not always be the most recent photos, I may go back and post something from a week or two ago that I like but didn't post yet. And I will still try to use my camera everyday but I won't always post those pictures if they are bad or just boring. Not sure if that is in the pure spirit of a photo a day but it is my way of encouraging myself to use my camera daily but reduce the stress of feeling that I have to post something from all those less than satisfactory sessions.

Jennifer - I'm sorry to read that you disposed of your blog. I understand the dilemma of working on your photography versus the urge to post each and every day regardless of quality or content. I just discussed with my son last evening about my stagnant creativity to which he is going to go out with me this weekend and push me a bit. I sometimes find the need to put some space between my posts - but because I have several family members that live afar, it serves as a link or glimpse into my current state of insanity. Kinda like talking with that good friend about nothing of any importance bordering on silliness - yet it is just good to know that they 'are'.

I hope you find your way back - I had noticed a definite growth in your photography.

Jennifer--I understand the pressure you can feel at needing to have a "fresh" photo every day. I look at it as the Photo of the Day is the photo (or photos) I post, not necessarily that they were taken that day. The entire series of ice photos were all taken the same day, but I spread out the posts. And, like Nicki was saying, sometimes there are things in life that are more important than getting out to take a photo. Come back when you can; I enjoy your blog and seeing what you are seeing!
