I haven’t done one of these in a couple years

Wow. We took a lot of pictures last year! I had a renewed interest in photography even before the 7D arrived, but the new camera really lit a fire under me. Late in the year, The Daily Shoot came along and threw gas on the fire. Why do I care how many pictures I’ve taken? Well, I don’t per se. But to quote the Daily Shoot site: “Photography is an art and a craft. Getting better at both requires practice–lots of practice.”
