Project 365 - 1 month down, 11 to go!

One month into the 365 project and I am still hanging in there. Finally, I can say that taking a picture everyday is starting to feel more like second nature than something I have to do.

Cutting and deseeding tomatoes for this most delicious pasta recipe that I discovered on Pinterest. I have found so many yummy recipes via pinterest that I might have to start a weekly post about what I have been cooking.

Do you have a Five Guys burger joint near you?  If you love burgers and fresh cut fries, then you are missing out if you don't give this place a try.  There burgers are delicious.  Our local Five Guys recently installed these Jetson like Coke machines that make drinking disgusting soda oh so much fun.....for the kids.  If I drink soda it is plain coke or pepsi for me.

I bought a photo reflector a few months ago and this Saturday I finally got the chance to practice with it.  There is a serious learning curve to figuring out how to angle and bend the reflector to get the lighting just right.  We blinded our test models more than a occasions!  The few times we got it right, wow....just look at the catch light in Kate's eyes.

In this shot Kate was completely being back lit by the sun.  We used the gold reflector to bounce light back onto her face and into her eyes.  I was shooting directly into the sun which explains the haze effect.

When the weather man predicted the temps over the weekend would be in the mid to high 70's my Dad invited us over for a BBQ.  You can't really tell from this picture but the amount of meat on these ribs were insane.  They were more like Dinosaur ribs than beef ribs.  But dang, they were gooooood.

January 30
Yes, another food shot!  When I don't have anything exciting going on or wait until the end of the day I resort to taking pictures of food.  These baby bella mushrooms were waiting for yet another pasta dish.

At the beginning of the summer Reid's phone was falling apart so she asked if she could have an iPhone.  I am one of those parents that doesn't think a 16 needs an iPhone, but I told her that if she got a 4.0 on her first semester report card that I would get her the coveted iPhone 4S.

Well, that carrot was big bright a shiny and Reid followed through and earned a 4.3 GPA and an iPhone 4S!  The iPad is my new toy. 
February 1
Met up with a friend this morning to go walking.  Took the dogs.  Both dogs.  However I didn't know that my friend invited another friend (and her dog) to join us.  This little terror does not like other dogs.  Grrrr!  Where is Cesar Milan when you need him?

Happy shooting and thanks for looking.

When we were having my daughter's wedding pics done, I had to hold that thing for the photographer! I really love your photos this week so much. The tomatoes are really neat!

I have never been to Five Guys, they JUST put one in our mall. Gotta check it out now. That coke machine is cool. :)

All your pics and writing about food sure did make me hungry. We do have a 5 Guys right in town and yes, I agree great hamburgers, fries & that fun drink machine. And your Dad's BBQ ribs, oh yum. Love the portrait shot. I bought one of those reflector things and have really never used it...just might have to give it a whirl. Happy Week!!

I did 365 one year, and it was quite a challenge! Great job!
