365: a picture a day

This project is under construction and as such a workshop: For the whole year I try to post a picture a day combined with a title. Starting with the latest on top. In February I decided to choose a topic to go with every month. I started with RED, then HUMAN, in April SHADOW and in May WATER, in June the topic became CLOUDS. In July the new topic turned out to be: REFLECTION/MIRROR. Due to to the holidays I picked ON THE ROAD as a topic for the month of August. A theme provides me a beautiful balance of focus and space to play. Feel free to visit every now and then.
