Are there any photo projects or challenges you’re looking to tackle in the new year?

I'm going to keep waking up way too early -- so one challenge I face is how to keep the routine of looking out the same windows day-after-day interesting. For example, recently I've become interested in reflected light. So one challenge will be to keep finding something new and special within the mundane.

Another thing I think about: apart from the pleasure I get from making and sharing photos, what is the long-term point of all this effort? What happens to all this work? Can it remain useful? So I also want to get a bit closer to having a plan -- perhaps simply making a box of prints for my daughter -- or perhaps finding local institutions to submit photos to. Overall, to keep having fun!
