Illuminating

November 28, 2016 (333/366)

“You have to find what sparks a light in you so that
you in your own way can illuminate the world.” ~  Oprah Winfrey

Each year at this time, I start to think about a focus for future photography/blog projects. Do I continue a Project 365 or do I simply post photos and musings when I have something interesting to share? Surely quality is better than quantity, but I do learn something from even the most rudimentary shots. Do I insist on posting a photo that I took today or do I designate a photo that fits the date, a theme, my mood, etc. -- whether it was taken today or not? Somedays the inspiration and the vision just don't sync. Do I experiment with color themes or continue series like the French Fridays? After all, I will have lots of new pictures when I return from my trip to Paris in a few months! There are so many considerations. In 2015, I started with a grand plan that only lasted through January. This year, I gave myself the freedom to break my own rules, but I still posted something everyday.

In searching for possible photos for this black and white November, I revisited several of my favorite travel photos that were never featured in my Project 365. Maybe next year, I should feature an occasional "Where in the World?" post. Any guesses where this picture was taken?
