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.

I love hosta, mostly because it's so hardy and "idiot-proof"! I bought this hosta plant two weeks ago. It's been sitting in the garden bed ever since, in the plastic pot, still waiting for me to have time to plant it. With a three-day weekend in progress I hope to save some time to work in the garden.


  1. I love hosta too! I like the way you shot this with the blurred background and the partial leaves.


  2. I have a variety of hostas in the back. I'll have to try photographing the different colours and textures of the leaves - you have inspired me.

  3. Love the detailed lines of the leaves in this shot! Hope your weekend brings a new home for the hosta - patient as it is! :)
