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.
A very gray day again in the Chicago area, so while out for a walk I'm forced to search for beauty. I'm not sure this is beauty, but it is an amazing part of nature. This is a squirrel nest. During the majority of the year, it is hidden by the leaves in the tree, but in the winter, it is exposed for all to see. It strikes me that we are the opposite, as people, in the winter we are bundled up and hardly recognizable to neighbors who drive by. I look forward to the warm days of spring when we can shed our winter layers.
