Personal Photo challenge

I love to take photos. I'm sure you're aware of this by now. I probably take several photos, if not more, just about every day. But they're mostly done with my crappy quality phone camera. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to document our daily lives, even with a crappy phone camera. But, I have been itching to take more "real" photos. I need to get my creative juices flowing.

I've decided that in order to do that, I've got to set a goal for myself. And what better way to do that than to do my own photo challenge! I need to get outside and stretch my photography skills. I want and need to do it! Every week I want to get outside and take of picture of something that is not in my house. I'm hoping this will force me to go outside of my own front yard and devote a little bit of time to my favorite hobby, the only serious one I want to have time for.

So, here are my rules:
1. All my photos must be taken outside.
2. All my photos must be taken with my Canon DSLR camera (not just my phone).
3. All my photos must be taken within that week (I can't pull one from a long time ago and say that's my photo for the week)
4. No photos of the kids. While I love love love taking pictures of them, I need to branch out. That's the whole point of this!

And here is my first one. I took the boys for a walk earlier and they L.O.V.E planes. They will literally stop whatever they're doing when we're outside if they hear a plane. They want to find it in the sky. So, we heard this one and Ezra started saying "Paaaaannneeeee!!!" and I wanted to try to catch it with my camera.

 In this case, I wish I had a zoom lens. But, at least you can tell what it is! :)
