About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Emerged Tulips

My second graders have a Journey North tulip garden. We planted Red Emperor tulip bulbs in the fall (along with other schools throughout the country and world). Then everybody waits for spring's arrival as the tulips first emerge, and then bloom. As you view the Journey North data, one can literally watch spring's "journey north". I have been doing this for over 6 years now. This is the earliest emergence, to be seconded only by the spring of 2006. Wacky weather!


  1. Great pic! I hope we get to see another pic or two once the tulips are blooming.

  2. I did this with a class over ten years ago. Our spring came so late, the project was over before our tulips really bloomed. It is a wacky spring here - things are growing almost a month ahead of schedule.

  3. What a swell project! Wacky weather for sure, here in the PNW spring is very early and winter was very mild. I like El Nino!
