It’s a New Year and as I shared with you, I have started a 365 (actually 366 this year) project. I thought I’d share my photos from the first week:
On January 1 we were graced with this awesome sunset. I know a lot of you saw this because there were a bunch of people down at Sporthaven walking on the beach, or just sitting in their cars. And more than a few were taking pictures. I plan to regularly take pictures of sunsets.
January 2 we finally had some rain. I snapped this picture of the raindrops on my car as I looked out my garage door up my street.
January 3 is a photo of my dog, Snickers, in one of her favorite places to lie down these days – behind the dining room table. She is getting deaf in her old age and I think she feels safer there. Gotta love that one ear up and the other down look.
January 4 I had some fun playing with my iPhone camera. This photo was snapped in the dark outside Fred Meyer in my car. See, you really can take pictures anywhere anytime. Who knows what you’ll come up with. I think it is a good idea to take a picture of yourself from time to time.
January 5 we had a wild winter ocean going on outside my window. I took quite a few pictures of the waves crashing over the rocks. I plan to take regular photos of the ocean too. Just because I love it and feel so fortunate to live here. Before I moved here, I never realized how much the ocean changes day to day.
January 6 is a photo of my new exercise shoes that I bought that day. It’s actually a photo for a new class I signed up for at Big Pictures called Move More, Eat Well. The bracelet on top says “I Think. I Live. I Am. PINK.” Great new fitness and nutrition program I started. You can find out more about that here.
January 7 I got home exhausted and tired from work. Something to do with an in-store birthday party making scrapbooks with 7 girls (age 10 and under). I was getting ready for bed and all of a sudden remembered my photo. I grabbed my camera and had fun working with very low light. I really wanted to capture the sparkle on these Christmas flowers that are still out. Found I have an ISO 3200 setting on my snap and shoot. See what I mean about learning more about your camera with this project?
My daughter sent me a link to this site where someone has made a list of things to take a photo of every day, should you need some inspiration. I’ll take all the help I can get.
If you don’t read Allie Edwards’ newsletter (you can subscribe at her blog), she had a great post on Creative Practice. That is what this project is all about. If you are interested in reading what she had to say, send me your email and I will forward it to you. Meanwhile, I hope you are busy creating new memories for 2012.
