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.

Bug Saga

So...funny story (not). I took a medical day off today for a mid-day doctor's appointment, and decided to finally get my '79 Bug inspected early this morning. (Everything was in order- it just needed an inspection.) On the way to the garage I got stopped due to... yes- no inspection. A bus load of local students drove by while I was pulled over. I'm sure many of them knew me! It passed inspection, however on the way home (being an older Bug), it blew a fuel line. I sat on the side of the road for an hour waiting to be towed. Given that it's an older Bug, it loses about one fuel line per year. My husband joked tonight that perhaps it should say "fuel EJECTION" on the back instead! Very possibly!


  1. It's really very funny! I like that you love this car so much that you're willing to put up with its quirks.


  2. I have to admit it's a really funny story but I think that's mostly because it didn't happen to me. Oh what we do for the things we love. Hope your next road trip is less eventful.

  3. Hope the rest of the season brings more enjoyable rides. Great story.
