Photo Friday - Dog



















For some reason, the clarity of this photo isn't as good as it is on Flickr.  I've tried different sizes and large and small files.  Nothing seems to matter.  So, I'm putting this photo here, but I'm directing Photo Friday traffic to my Flickr page.  :( 

I also screwed up the layout of this blog in trying to post a large, more clear photo.  I'm having trouble changing it back quickly.  I don't have time to do it now, it's going to have to stay like this for now.  Uggg....

Anyway, I haven't been participating in Photo Friday because my 365 Project is taking too much time. However, when I saw the theme this week, I just knew I had to feature Miss Dakota, our neighbour's dog. I just took this photo a few days ago. She's such a sweetie.

365 Project - 25th Week

The 25th week of my 365 project has come and gone. It's almost hard to believe that I've been doing this for almost 6 months.

I'm going through another rough patch with inspiration and motivation. I still don't know if I'm fully committed to completing this project. It may or may not happen.

Anyway, I don't have any favourites this week. I'm reasonably happy with 2 and 4, but I think each one of them could be better. Better composition, better/different lighting, better post-processing. Something. Anything.

365 Project - 24rd Week

Here are my photos for the 24th week of my 365 project. I can't believe I almost forgot to post this. It's been a busy week. I finally got around to reading part of my camera manual and did learn a few things, but not as much as I'd hoped. Still, something is better than nothing.

My favourites are 3, 5 and 7. As it turns out, 3 is my favourite photo now in the whole project. I love how it turned out. I love 5 because of the nostalgia and 7 was really fun to play with in post processing.

Wordless Thursday? - New Growth

Why have I been missing Wordless Wednesday? I love submitting a photo for that. All I have to do is upload a photo, type in a title and voila! I'm done. But for some reason, I keep forgeting what day it is.

 


















Since it's no longer Wednesday and this post is no longer wordless, I might as well explain this photo. We planted several new evergreens this year and each and everyone of them is sporting new growth. How cool is that?!! This is just a little part of it.

See you next Wednesday...or Thurday. ;)

365 Project - 23rd Week

Here are the photos for the 23rd week of my 365 project. I had a better week. I'm still struggling with motivation and inspiration, but a little less so. I don't always devote the time I should to photography. I have other interests (too many it seems) and my time gets spread too thin. I hope to rectify that in small increments. This week, I hope to pull out my camera manual to learn a little more about all of the little buttons.

365 Project - 22nd Week

Here are the photos for the 22st week of my 365 project. It's been a blah week. I'm really struggling. No motivation, no inspiration and very little desire to pick up the camera.   I'm considering giving myself permission to wrap up this project early.   I don't know...*big sigh*
