Birds learn how to fly, never knowing where flight will take them. -Mark Nepo I maybe fail at completing this particular challenge because I never have a goal behind it. So maybe setting goals should be step one on week one. Did week one hit any of those goals? I am not a bird watcher,…
New Year New Goals
“Everything has to evolve or else it perishes.” ― John Knowles, A Separate Peace In 2022 I started this same journey, honestly I have attempted it multiple times in the past, but something always gets in my way. My last try lasted 42 weeks, I made it 80% of the way, but I was going through personal struggles that…
Week 42 of 42
I headed to coopers rock for some fall shots, however I turned around almost immediately due to the vast number of tourists. I find a quiet little pond nearby and find some images to make. Life is still complicated, but I am proud of myself for making more of an effort. Maybe I can make…
Week 41 of 52
Another sunset image from a go to spot. I think at this point I may just be going thru the motions. It is getting harder and harder to get out there and shoot. I am picking easy spots at the end of the week and just rolling with it.

Week 37 of 52
Grand Vue Park overlook in Moundsville, WV. I am still crashing with my friend, but I am away at a work conference. I slip out and find this breathtaking image about 20 miles away. I am still lost and confused, but moments like this bring me a bit of peace. I am finding peace in…
Week 36 of 52
With this image I will make a confession. I am posting the remainder of my attempt at 52 weeks of a weekly photo post in April of 2023. I don’t delve into my personal life here, or really anywhere, but I was going thru a lot personally at this time. Honestly, it predates this image…
Week 33 of 52
Back in my hometown of Parkersburg, WV I caught this stunning sunset at Point Park where the Little Kanawha River meets up with the Ohio River. Another fantastic evening to capture the beauty of a sunset.
