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.
What a beautiful day at the races! About 30 retirees from my school district gathered at Arlington Park this afternoon to enjoy our friendship as we watched the races. In this photo, the horses are being loaded into the gate at the start of the race. I was cheering for #4, Jilly from Philly, who came in first! I'm not a huge better (usually only betting $2 to show for each race), but it is fun to win even when the wager is small!
