Lead Foot Finale: Into the Setting Sun

It's hard when something you love comes to an end.

I started this little series as a lark. My only intention was to pick on my husband's inability to take his foot off the gas pedal and let me take a picture. I didn't really expect it to turn out as it has, and I definitely didn't expect it to affect me as it has.

I'm not a professional photographer or graphic artist. I have a decent camera. I have Photoshop, and I'm self-taught on it. I believe I have a good eye...even at 80mph.

But I have so much more to learn. I have images in my mind that are beyond my ability, and I want to learn how to bring them to life. I think I've made positive steps in that direction, but I want to go further. I see the images that show up on my contacts photostream, and I think, I want to make something like that! Will I ever be able to make something like THAT?

This series has been a step in the right direction, I think. It's all about practice, about multiple attempts, about not saying "Good enough" and striving to say "Good." About working toward "Great."

Thank you to everyone who has followed this little journey. Now...on to the next adventure...

The Grand Finale...
