I have my new toy and thoroughly enjoying it. I am not as talented as others, but that will NOT stop me. Take a peek through your own viewfinder every once in a while. It does change the way you see the world.
I have seen that a few people on Flickr have started Photo Journals. I know its not too late to try, so my goal is to take at least one photo a day. That will get my eyes trained to see things in a different perspective again. Watch here for results.
