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.

Took a drive to a local town landing this evening. Had hoped to get a cool shot of a sailboat sitting in the fog. Instead I found low tide... and no fog. Plan B- I found some curious objects about the dock to shoot. As I posted them it occurred to me that both the life preservers and cleat are responsible for keeping boaters (and their boats) safe, giving me not only shots, but a theme to boot! Plan B can be a very good thing!


  1. I love the contrast of the bright life jackets against the grayish background. Plan B can lead to interesting ideas.

  2. Ditto. Plan B has lead to some interesting ideas for me as well.
