Photo on Day One

There is a belief among people I know which says: “Whatever good thing one does on the first day of a new year will carry on to each following day in that year.” For me that means I have to make a decent photo on New Years Day, regardless of circumstances, so that my photography over the next 12 months will be rewarding in some way, no matter less-than-desirable challenges that are placed in front of me. Like cold rain soaking river rocks (and me) today in my back yard flower garden.
