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.

Which Color?

The big project for this summer is to paint the house. The last time it was done was about 13 years ago. Luckily, many of the paint companies now sell "sample colors" to try out. Left to right and top to bottom: moss blue, barn red, wedgewood, and bordeaux. (The color in the middle cross is the current faded shade.) Which would you pick?


  1. I love the shot! Neat color and line in this.

    As for color, I like the moss blue too. But that barn red is pretty outstanding. I might go for that depending on the house.


  2. I agree with Susan I like the moss blue the best. However, I am biased as blue is my favourite colour. If you're going for a change the barn red is a definite possibility. As Julie says, it depends a bit on the house. Good luck and happy painting.

  3. I like the blue as well, but I like it a lot next to the other colors, I think. They are beautiful together and such fantastic rich earthy tones. I doubt you'll go wrong no matter what you choose... :)
