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.

As I opened the garage door this morning, I noticed this little guy struggling to get out. The first place he could light to rest (outdoors) was my car windshield. Luckily he was tuckered out from trying to get outside, and was willing to sit still while I snapped several shots. One of the aspects I love about doing this project365 is all the new information about the world that I've learned this year! However, try as I may have to search for an image that matched my friend here, I can't figure out what type of butterfly it is. It seems to be part of the fritillary family, but beyond that... nothing. Any ideas?


  1. These are great. Nice of the butterfly to perch on the windshield for you to get such a perfect reflection.

  2. Sorry I can't help you with the name but I will tell you that I love your pics. The second one is amazing. Great detail and clarity. Well done!

  3. Kristy, that second shot is absolutely a stunner! Great detail and color, and the reflection is unbelievably lucky!
