Jan. 1, 2012, Minneapolis -- A man lays down in the snow to take a picture of his custom bicycle in Loring Park near downtown Minneapolis, Minn. on the evening of Jan. 1, 2012. After a unseasonably warm December, mother nature took a cold turn on New Year's Eve, dropping 10 degrees, an inch of snow and blowing wind gusts up to 35 mph through New Year's Day, according to the National Weather Service.

In­spired my by friend Heather By­ing­ton’s 365 project, I have de­cid­ed to do my own pho­to-a-day project. I will be ex­plor­ing as many as­pects of pho­to­jour­nal­ism as I can over the course of the year.

Jan. 1, 2012, Min­neapo­lis — A man lays down in the snow to take a pic­ture of his cus­tom bi­cy­cle in Lor­ing Park near down­town Min­neapo­lis, Minn. on the evening of Jan. 1, 2012. Af­ter a un­sea­son­ably warm De­cem­ber, Moth­er Na­ture took a cold turn on New Year’s Eve, drop­ping 10 de­grees, an inch of snow and blow­ing wind gusts up to 35 mph through New Year’s Day, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tion­al Weath­er Service.

Since it was so cold to­day af­ter be­ing warm in De­cem­ber, I knew I want­ed some­thing show­ing the cold and I did­n’t have to go any far­ther than Lor­ing Park to get this im­age of a man pho­tograph­ing his bicycle.
