In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
This beautiful swan was enjoying a swim as I walked around Lake Arlington today. It was one of the first days that all the ice was melted in the lake. Although still cool, it was a nice afternoon to walk since there was no wind. Compare the flags below to the flags when I walked around the lake last month.
