1.4.11 Resolution – Challenge

I am not really a goal oriented person.  I am on the other hand a spontaneous, riding on the seat of your pants type of gal.  Not much into making list or checking them twice.
When I read about all the goals that people are writing down I feel a bit left out.  So to start of this year like everyone else, I made a list. 
I challenge myself, no I resolve to -
1.  Remember.  Remember important date of my family members. Seems that birthdays, anniversaries and such sneak past and before I know it they are long gone.  I resolve to do better.
2.  Do away with the soft drinks.  After cancer surgery (thyroid cancer) I was left with the inability to drink anything that didn’t have a taste.  WATER WAS OUT!  I can say that I am HOOKED on the carbonation BURN.  I resolve to find something better than sodas that will quench my thirst.
3.  Get organized.  Ever seen those show where they showcase a person with a terrible hording addiction?  Well I am not that bad but I do have my stashes of things (stuff) that I have been moving around from place to place.  Time to sell, give away or through out.

There you have my Challenge for 2011.  My New Years Resolution.  It’s a small list compared to some but it will take me the whole of 2011 to get something's completed so I am ready for 2012.

The perspective and the island of focus, along with the use of B&W gives a sense of introspection to the photo.

All of your photos are wonderful! (And I'm glad to hear I'm not the only recovering packrat around! lol It's a lifelong addiction that takes constant vigilance, even after you've gotten rid of a lot--something about nature abhorring a vacuum, maybe???)
I look forward to another year of your photographs!

The selective focus draws you to the theme point, good stuff!

Love the writing with your photography today. It tells a story and that is great. I also love your resolutions. Mine are similar, not quite the same, but very similar. I just wish it were easy to dejunk and dechoas my life!!

Your perspective and depth of focus are just perfect for this view of your list. And your self-portrait was really well done...the angle was interesting and flattering.

Stopped in and noticed that you're looking for something other than soda to quench that carbonation burn you love... I love Clear American sparkling water from Walmart! It comes in lots of flavors (my favorite are black cherry and white grape, my girls love the lemon). After being a soda junkie for years, "fizzy water" is pretty much all we drink now... and this stuff is perfect!
