2012, Day 5 - Flashpoint

Another amazing sunrise.  So far 2012 has bless us with amazing morning skies of orange, pink, and purple.  That has to be an auspicious sign, right?

I think this year I need to work on making photography more social.  There are a number of people I've gone shooting with last year but it is, primarily, a solitary pursuit.  That isn't a complaint, I enjoy my time alone because it allows me to time to think not only about photography but about life and its infinite mysteries.  However there is a kind of excitement in photography that is contagious and any number of people can look at the same subject in a much different way so I don't worry about ending the day with duplicates of the images created by other people.  In making photography a social hobby it also greatly increases the chances of learning new things and there is always room to grow in any art form.
