This photo is of an evergreen tree that is literally in my backyard! 

I have owned a digital camera of one kind or another for the past six years, yet I realized recently that I have never read any camera guide all the way through.  Chris and I bought a new camera only last summer and I still did not know all of the buttons, so I resolved to work my way through the manual in an effort to better understand what makes it go 'click.'  At the very least, I wanted to understand how to turn my photos from mediocre snapshots to a photo that I would enjoy looking over a few years down the road, instead of continually complaining about the 'confusing newfangled digital camera' (at my heart, I am a crotchety old woman).

This has been one of my projects as I ramp up for my years of travel.  Besides reading my camera guide (which was actually one of the most helpful books I looked at), I have been baffled by numerous photography books and have admired many professional photographers' work, usually to the tune of 'how on earth did she get it to focus there?' or 'ah HA!  The law of thirds, I see it!'

These photos are all from around my hometown of Seattle, Washington, USA.  I love seeing my own backyard as a tourist!
