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.

Newest Addition

The latest addition to the family. It just arrived today! Researched the price, performance and popularity, and decided that this was the best pick. I hope to read up over the coming weekend and start shooting with it soon! (Thanks to those who voted on my blog poll!)


  1. You're going to love it!


  2. A new toy! Such fun. That's the same model I bought and I love it. Now I have to think about investing in some more lenses. I had to send it back this week because the lens and camera weren't working together(long story) but it's under warranty. It takes great pics and I can't wait to get it back.

  3. Congrats! I hope you shoot 10 million pictures with it.

  4. Looking forward to feedback - I'm thinking of a new camera.

  5. Fun! Seems like a great choice and I'm sure you will have a blast with it.
