Beginning the journal

How interesting that the word journal and journey are so similar.  I've started this blog because I'm taking Kat's Find Your Eye Photography course to learn more about my own visual journey.  The first step is to create a photo journal and this is what I've created.

Just for starters I want to see how a photograph looks posted here.  I took this the other day while walking the dogs.  These leaves were clustered in the gutter and the sun was gleaming off the water drops, making them look like shimmery opals.  I'm always drawn to shimmer--and to sudden glimpses of treasure.
