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.

Our house is over 125 years old. In our front yard sits this pump atop the well that likely provided the house's occupants with water. It actually still works, although we haven't used it regularly in years. I love the words "Modern Ironworks" in the second macro shot. Seems so ironic! Makes me reflect on the challenges that those who came before endured, versus the luxuries we are presented with today. How times have changed!


  1. I agree - great in black and white. I also love the new look of your blog as well. Sorry I've been negligent with comments. I've got a bad case of tendinitis in both elbows so Peg's been typing my blog for me. I've just taken my anti-inflammatory and I've braced my arms so I can do a few comments.

  2. What a classic shape in the pump. Black and white is so perfect for this. I like your new theme too.
