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.

Birch Bark

I really enjoy shooting things up close. Have a (used) macro lens coming next week. I am really looking forward to even closer close-ups!


  1. This shot is really nice. I'm sure you're going to enjoy your new lens. I don't have a true macro lens but think it would be a nice addition to my kit. Have fun!


  2. Nice shot! I agree with Julie, you're going to love playing with your macro. You'll have to let me know which one you get. I don't have one for my Canon yet.

  3. It's a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Lens. It is rated very highly wherever I've checked it out. Am a little nervous about a used lens, but can't afford the brand-new version. I'll keep you posted!

  4. I love birch bark, this is so evocative. Hope you and your new lens get along.
