It's hot in Texas in the summer. About the only thing that survives in these conditions are these crepe myrtles - and they are everywhere. These are my favorite color, although they come in about six colors and a billion different sizes.
A friend of mine started a 365 Photo Project in which he takes and posts a photo every day for a year. Starting one of my own seemed like a great idea. I hope it will be a way to improve my (very rudimentary) photography skills and and also a way to celebrate turning 40.
