What a year of pictures! The diversity you captured from staplers to paper rolls, sunsets and sunrises, birds, seals, flowers, buildings, landscapes and everything in between. Congratulations to you on a nice accomplishment!!

Congratulations for having the tenacity to see your project through to the end .. we could see at times it was becoming a chore to have to shoot subjects that maybe you would prefer not to, but you got up and soldiered on and showed us some very interesting techniques and photos along the way.

Love the Stellar’s Jay and Acorn WP (never heard of it before) !

I knew the Wizard of Oz was real! The tree shot proves it.

Very nice set of photos!..and as others have said,what a great project..I am still going thru your past posts and enjoying them immensely..I like the second flower..it seems to be sneaking out of the corner and flowing up to the upper opposite corner.For some reason my eye likes that. Love your birds,especially the silhouette of the jay and also middle shot of the woodpecker and his acorns.And the tree face..very neat!

Thank you all for your comments! I've been backing off from taking many pictures recently, I just don't have much time anymore. But I'm still hanging around here.

I'm happy I continued as much as I could with the 365 project. I discovered that I didn't struggle with some things I had expected to, found other aspects of it harder than I had imagined (time especially - after all it only takes a couple of seconds to push the shutter). I tried some things I wanted to try, tried some things I had never thought about before and didn't quite get around to all I wanted to accomplish. I hope to be able to try another 365 project once I retire and have more time to devote to it.

One of the things I took away from the year is how important practice is. Before I started the project I hadn't been shooting all that much and initially struggled with some things that had been very easy for me in the past. And now that I'm not shooting very much, I find that I'm back to falling into the bad habits I had before. Time to get back into taking some pictures again, I think.

Way to go lady! The tree face is straight out of The Wizard of Oz.

Thanks!

Paul, I wasn't thinking so much of the Wizard of Oz, though that would be appropriate, too. My thought was to Tolkein's Ents in the Lord of the Rings.

Another interesting thing - I had never really heard of the Acorn Woodpecker before taking the pictures above. Last weekend I went to the Sierras, staying somewhat near Yosemite and kept seeing them all over.
