Project 365 ~ Day 28

Proud Pugsley.

We've named our raven couple Gomez and Morticia (you know - Addams?), so naturally the baby is named Pugsley (though I'm not sure what sex he/she is, yet...)

Project 365 ~ Day 25

The Messenger.

This is a crop of one of the ravens who greeted me when I got home from work today. Ravens are said to be messengers - time for me to listen...

Project 365 ~ Day 22


When I'm not taking pictures I'm trying to learn how to take better pictures. Right now I'd give myself about a C+...

Project 365 ~ Day 21

The iris has always been my favorite flower. I just love them. And I don't see them very much where I live, so I was really happy to find several beds of them on the grounds of City Hall today.

Project 365 ~ Day 20

The Barn

I was driving around this afternoon and came upon this old barn in a newly growing field. The red of the barn is amazing! I really hope the field is canola - the colours will be stunning when it blooms...

Project 365 ~ Day 16

These ruins of an old homestead are on the edge of a canola field that I pass several times a week. I'd been wanting to stop and catch the scene for ages - finally did it today...

Project 365 ~ Day 14

I'm still trying to get the hang of lunar photos. They say that to take a great pic of the moon is to prove your worth as a photographer. Clearly, I haven't yet proven my worth.

But I will.....

Project 365 ~ Day 12 Curly Cues

It's been a long Friday at work, and I came home exhausted and not feeling at all creative. I had to let the dogs out, so I grabbed my macro lens and headed to the back yard. Soon I was flat on the ground shooting the dandelions. It was somewhat difficult since the dogs got very excited at the fact that I was on the ground and kept prancing around me, getting in my shot and worse - trampling on my dandelions!!

Wind and Macros Don't Mix (Project 365 - Day 7)

There had not been a whisper of a breeze. Not for hours. Not until I got outside with the tripod, macro lens and remote. Then Mother Nature decided it was time to blow... ::sigh::

Project 365 - Day 6

Here is what I did on Friday night. NO, I wasn't in a video game tourney - I was wrestling with putting together the frikin' console table. It looks good, but the holes were the wrong size and in the wrong places - instructions showed incorrect diagrams - it was a nightmare!

But finally I was victorious and now we have a cool looking video game setup. You can't see, but the games themselves are on the built in bookshelf. All in all, I'm happy...

Full moon is coming... (project 365 - day 1)

but not here quite yet.

Taken 11:35pm pacific time June 1, 2009. My first moon photo that wasn't a white glowing blob. I might be getting the hang of this!...

Project 365 is a project to take a photo every day for a year. This one was taken on June 1, so it's my first one. More to follow...
