I just wanted to add that I came across a site called Kickstarter where people put up projects they are working on and try and get some crowd sourced funding to complete it. I have actually visited the site before but I had forgotten about it. There is a whole section on photography and one project in particular caught my attention called the "Unknown Photographer," so I ended up making a pledge for it. If you have a minute go ahead and check out the site, there just might be a photography project that strikes a cord for you! And no, I don't have any projects on there looking for pledges!
Thanks again for dropping by the blog!
