Thanks very much, Patrick. Hmmm. I don't have Adobe Lightroom, I'll have to look into that. I do have two other programs that might accomplish the same thing, though, including Picasa. The primary thing is to take the camera with me when I go anywhere and have it handy at home. Can't make any kind of quality photo collage without the good pics. What I have found interesting in the past is that one doesn't always know what a "good picture" is at the time, and sometimes cropping or other editing reveal an image that at first doesn't seem all that promising.

Hope Patrick's information helps you, Rick. I'm completely lost in the photography area.

It's a good thing you inherited that artistic gene from your mother, Patrick.

I have a Canon Rebel XTI (400d) - I have two lenses, a pretty standard 50mm f1.4, and the Sigma 10-20mm for wide angle. I do all my photo processing in Adobe's Lightroom, so these were all processed throughout year (see: the whole 365). Then when everything was all done I arranged them all (by hand) using Adobe's InDesign.

George, I'm very interested in this entire process. Naturally, I understand the part about taking the pictures, but I'd be very grateful if you could tell me, or have Patrick email me, regarding the software he uses to edit the photographs (Adobe Photoshop?) and especially what he uses to assemble the pictures in this way. THANKS! Also, I AM going to try a 30 day picture-a-day. It won't be a calendar month, because I want to get started sooner, while I have the enthusiasm. This will get me out of the house and out SEEING as well as LOOKING, which happens when I have the camera with me.

We eat out at least once a week, Jeff. But, when friends are visiting the local casino, we'll eat out multiple times!

Good luck, Rick! If Patrick can do it, you can do it!

Diane and I try to limit our restaurant trips to once a week, Rick. But sometimes we're eating out three or four times depending on the various events we're engaged in.

You and Art are way more organized than I am, Jeff. I just look at my credit card summary to tell me where I've eaten and how much we've spent.

When Patrick showed this to Diane, she loved the whole concept of distilling a years worth in terms of an artistic experience, Art. To take a photo every takes a lot of discipline.
