52 Photos in 52 Weeks

One of my goals this year was to focus a bit more on photography and try to improve my photo taking skills.  A few fellow bloggers suggest I join 52 Frames where we're given a weekly assignment and just one week to take a photo.  I thought it sounded like fun and decided to give it a try.

I missed the first week of this fun photography challenge but joined in eagerly as each week my inbox was filled with a new challenge (complete with tips!) to join in with other bloggers in trying to capture each week's challenge to the best of my ability.
