Boy, it's a lot easier doing a photo a day when you're not working! Probably 7 months of random, often uninspired photos is enough anyway :-) But what I gained from the exercise is a commitment to take the camera out more, look for photo ops in unusualy situations, and to take the setting off 'auto' more often. Here's the most recent efforts - we went to the county fair a couple weeks ago and I made a couple of floral arrangements for my decorating blog (see more there with complete step by step instructions). http://www.yourdeocratinghotline.com/ as a reminder.
Looks like one kid was lovin' it, one not so much.
Ferris wheel, artistically.
The ubiquitous balloon man was a hit.
Some funky prize winning Japanese chicken.
Flowers - glad to see the skills came back to me after I got started.
A couple of early morning cactus flower shots - they only open in the mornings when it's cool and we only saw them as buds for a couple days and open a couple of mornings, then they're done. Guess flowering takes lots of water.....
The flowers really drew the bees and I got lucky to catch this one.
This blog started a couple years ago with my first attempt to complete a picture a day for a year. I made it into August but with quite a few misses in the last couple months. This year I've been inspired to try again.
My goals with the 365 project are to improve both my eye for noticing the unusual or pretty (even in the mundane) as well as to improve my skills. That means taking the camera off auto more often!
REMEMBER - You can click on any photo and see it larger and with more detail. Some of them look quite cool that way.
