Last year, I shot a lot of good pictures of exotic European cities- Seville, Bruges, and Amsterdam, to name a few.  Some of the shots were straight-forward, but others were more creative, using techniques such as HDR or black-and-white.  There is something about being in a foreign country that makes this easier.  As I wander the streets, my eyes are open, and I’m looking for photos all of the time.

Well, what if I tried to take the same approach to my home town?  Could I find the same kind of photos?  This year, I’m going to find out.  Get prepared for a collection of photos this year from the exotic, foreign city of Fort Collins, Colorado.
