365 Project for 2011 and take a photo everyday, which will turn into a photo journal of the year. You know, just a little something to add to my plate and drive my family crazy - how fun! hahaha! Having a daily photo journal is part of the reason I want to do this project - I have loads and loads of photos to be scrapbooked and you know, honestly, I don't know if that is ever going to happen. So this is kind of my little compromise. Also, I want to develop my skills as a photographer and see if I really want to pursue it as a profession when my kids are all in school - taking my camera with me everywhere has already been a challenge, but I hope it becomes more of a habit. I found this cute digi frame set and thought it would be cool to add my photos in it and make a book at the end of the year.
If you are interested, you can see my 365 project in full size and see every picture I take for each day.
Now for the details:
Day 1: Mr. Potato Head explodes. I thought this was hysterical! Avery and I kept putting that poor guy back together and then she'd push the little "explode" button and I'd try to get all his bits and pieces in mid air. This is a Toy Story potato, so he talks and throws his limbs about - he's cute.
Day 2: Winter Wreath. This is a wreath my mom gave me years ago and I put it out each Christmas. It hangs on our coat closet door and the light hits it just right and the clear beads just glow. Now it is all packed away...
Day 3: Cocoa Date. I have to admit, this a completely planned outing for the photo op, haha! I took the kids to Starbucks for a little cocoa/frappuccino date and caught Andrew mid thought.
Day 4: Angel of Patience. I was a single mom while my husband was on a trip and I just needed more patience on this day. And I thought I'd practice some bokeh (blurred background) shots with the Christmas tree lights before I took it down.
Day 5: Through the Looking Glass. Katie and I went on a little walk in our neighborhood while the other 2 were in school and she found this piece of ice and was trying to look through it. Oh, and I think I actually told her not to eat the yellow snow.
Day 6: Color Me Copic. I'm sure you all know what these little beautiful blue markers are *wink*. It was a bad photo day and I needed to take a picture of something, so there you have it. They're beautiful, aren't they??
Day 7: Brown Eyed Girl. Katie again. She's so sweet and she finally let me take a real picture of her in her brother's room. I love her sweet little toothless smile. And of course her crazy hair that I can never ever keep under control.
OK, that's it for this week's 365. I'll post again next week and see how I do. It's been tough to find new inspiration everyday. We shall see!!
