November is for Photography

This upcoming weekend I am meeting up with a small group of fellows with whom I am in a group for our inaugural Texas StrenFest (or Festival of Strenuosity.) We have several scheduled activities for the getaway, but one thing I will be doing as a sole endeavor is practicing my photography. It's been more than a minute since I cracked out my camera, but this trip offers me to get plenty of practice. After all, something fun begins in a few weeks.


November is for Photography!


I am under no illusions that I am Ansel Adams, Dorthea Lange, or Richard Avedon. I'm just a guy with a Nikon with no training or experience, but I enjoy taking a camera into the wild to see what he can capture.


Since 2015, I often take my camera with me on trips and spend a day just walking and taking pictures. Here are a few examples of what I have captured (non-edited):

As I said, I am no professional. I wouldn't even rate myself as a novice. What I do want is to get better. To do that, I am doing a challenge with a group of friends to do a photo a day in November. After reviewing several "30-Day Photo Challenges", this is what November brings:
