Day 354 – December 19, 2012

Day 354

My husband bought me two new vintage cameras while he was on TDY to New Mexico recently.  Last night I had a dream I was taking pictures with this one.

In other news, we are leaving tomorrow on our cross-country trek to visit almost all our family members for Christmas and New Years.  I won’t be able to post the rest of the years photos until after we get back on January 6th.  So I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  To all my fellow 366’ers – can you believe it!?  We’ll be done so soon!  It’s been a wonderful adventure.  I’ll be putting my last 12 images of this project up when we get back.  I can’t wait to see the end of all of your projects as well.  And while I might be finished with my everyday project shortly, I’ll be working in January on this project’s book, which I’m planning on having available by the end of January 2013.  See you all next year ;)

Day 351

Christmas time is here.  

Day 343 – December 8, 2012

Day 343

Little firework.

Day 331 – November 26, 2012

Everything is re-blooming! I love it! Flowers in November :)

Day 289 – October 15, 2012

I knew I’d be shooting outside a lot.  I didn’t realize how nice it would be to have a change of scenery and to be visiting the east coast in the fall.  I got such lovely photos. 

Day 171 – June 19, 2012

Just goofing around with my macro lens today, trying to see if I could get a reflection of some trees in water droplets.  Nothing I had them on at first was working, so I just used my hand.  That worked the best.  I want to refine this idea.  I love the idea of shots of water droplets with reflections in them. 

Day 159 – June 7, 2012

In the past couple days we’ve had some beautiful flowers in the front yard bloom like crazy.  When I went to get the mail I noticed lots of little bees buzzing around the flowers and I decided I should be brave and see if I could capture a photo of them.  They were super fast, never spending more than 2 seconds on a single flower.  Way too fast to be able to get a good macro shot, so I settled for my normal lens and got a few good shots.  This one was my favorite. 

Day 107 – April 16, 2012

I went to take a picture of these pretty purple flowers my husband has been growing and I freaked out when I realized there was a spider on them.  Any spider that has bright colors usually means bad news, and for me, every spider means bad news, since I’m unnaturally afraid of them.  So I literally took this picture without looking.  I held the camera near the flowers and spider and backed my body up as far as I could. 

Day 97 – April 6, 2012

Used another idea from my photo journal. There’s a lot of random ideas in there that I’ve sketched, but haven’t actually gotten around to creating; this everyday project is certainly helping me with that. The background picture I took today, but the lightning shot I took the last time we had a lightning storm here; which was July 24, 2011. 

Day 85 – March 25, 2012

There are tiny little purple flowers growing in my front yard.  They are gorgeous.  I love when things grow randomly out here in Arizona.  Most things that grow out here are pokey, poisonous, and green.  It’s a nice change to see such a pretty little thing growing.
