Back in the saddle......again!

Back in 2009 and started the 365 picture a day project.  I completed the project that year without missing a beat.  I enjoyed it so much that I continued right into 2010.

I was able to complete 8 months of the project in 2010 before throwing in the towel due to having my beloved Canon Rebel bite the dust.  I would have bought a new camera right away but at the time we were remodeling our kitchen and I had serious spending fatigue.

A few months after the remodel I bought myself a Canon 50D, but I just didn't feel like starting the project back up.  It is a new year and my 50D wants some real action.  So I am jumping back into the 365 project with both feet.


January 1st -- Fog

This shot is the result of me going back and forth all day long trying to decide if I really wanted to do the project.  At 10:00 pm I decided that in fact I did want to give it another whirl and after returning home in the fog grabbed my camera for this rather eerie shot.


January 2nd -- Shooting from the hip

I like to shoot from the hip (literally).  When I do, I never look at the shots until I upload them to my computer.  It is kind of like back in the day when we shot with film and had to wait for the pictures to be developed to see what we got.

January 3rd -- Stillness

My not so little lovelies are back in school today.  So I am enjoying the stillness of the house.  You know that wonderful peace and quiet that really only comes when no one else is home?  It refuels me.

Linking up for a Wordful Wednesday with:

Wow! You're off to a great start. Love that fog one. And that second one was from the hip? Really? lol. That's amazing. Good luck on the challenge. Can't wait to see more. I did a daily one a couple years ago and it was the hardest thing I ever did! Happy WW!

Wow! Those are incredible shots!

I always start out a 365 project, but the longest I've lasted is May.
