It's said that what you do at the changing of the year is what you will be doing all year long. Well, that's probably about the way it will go for me. I took the three photos posted here today -- and a whole lot more -- on December 31st and then edited them on January 1st. In a way, they can be seen to represent past, present, and future.

"Memory of Autumn" above is my personal favorite of those that have survived the first round of culling and editing of that considerable batch of pictures. It has a very nostalgic feel to it for me. It's clearly been heavily edited; the actual rose is a lovely solid coral-red but it just cried out for considerable lightening and "texturizing."

"At the Whirlpool's Edge" below is a close second to "Memory of Autumn." It draws my eye in and around, and therefore the name:

The third and last below, "Ostrich Walk," is a view I catch quite often. But it's the first time I happened by at just the right time to see that ostrich prancing up the wall. That's something I hope I'll be doing a lot of this year: laughing as I take photos.

By the way, since these three newbies posted today haven't "cooled" yet, they are vulnerable to change. But I'm sharing them anyway in the heat of new photo enthusiasm. And with that also comes my best wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
