I made much more of an effort this week to get out and take pictures. I even got in my car and drove somewhere! (Amazing, I know)

As a result, I had quite a few more pictures to choose from than in previous weeks, which of course necessitated sharpening my editing (in the selection sense) skills. This, I think, is one of the challenges of this whole project: picking a small number of really good pictures from perhaps hundreds. It gets especially tough once I’ve narrowed it down to 10 or so, because at that point I like all of them. That said, I still suffer from the problem of reluctance to discard ‘almost’ pictures – the ones that might have been great, if only I’d done something slightly different.

A challenge, but of course that’s the point: this project is intended to sharpen these skills, on top of developing and instinctive knowledge of the ins and outs of the camera and lens.
