Project 52 – My Top Photos of 2015

I may have dropped the ball on this blog, but I’ve continued to work on my photography. In 2015, I challenged myself to take at least 1 photo per week with my SLR or Mirrorless, in the effort to improve my skills. Rather than force a gallery of my favorite pic...
