5 on 5 - january

We decided to do one more round of 5 on 5 to make it a full 12 month cycle.  I've loved having the opportunity to take part in this no pressure photo project with like-minded photo friends (and one sister).  Here's to 2017!

I'm in Toronto visiting my hometown family and it is utterly freezing (I love it).  I'm staying warm by looking at photos of the last few weeks leading in to the holidays.  We kept Christmas very quiet - it was just my small family of three, simple food, walks and drives into the city to look at the view, searching for sustenance at the Ferry Building in the early morning, taking the dog for a romp on the beach, and taking the time to breathe and look around and set work and stress aside for a week or so.

I also used the "Best Nine" algorithm to see my most-liked Instagram photos of 2016.  Although I may have chosen different personal favourites, these felt like a good round-up of the year - a little bit of family, a lot of being outside, the dog, and a certain ballpark birthday.

I'm not sure what 2017 will hold.  I have personal and professional plans but I have deliberately been keeping my head down for the past few weeks and haven't declared any resolutions for the New Year (not that I ever do).  But my intent is to keep picking up my camera and use it to tell stories.  Join me?
