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.

Day at the Fair

Today we drove to a country fair in-state that emphasizes organic farming, environmental sustainability, and traditional skills. The Canon came along and captured lots of sights such as this demonstration of mules plowing a field...
...lots of livestock, including this sheep...
...these sheep and goats (part of a Border collie demonstration)...
...this little piggie going, "zzz, zzz"...
...and lots of demonstrations of wood stoves and splitters. This "curl" of wood was laying on the ground; thought it looked curious. A fun time was had by all (especially the Canon).


  1. Fun! Great shots. You really captured the spirit of your day! :)

  2. Great shots! I agree with Laura. You definitely captured the spirit of the day. The sheep and pigs are ADORABLE. I've never seen 'chocolate' sheep before. Well done.

  3. Lots of photo ops here. Love the horses' heads across the frame and that little piglet is just precious - not something we see up this way.

    Haven't visited around for awhile and pleasantly surprised to see how active you are with your camera.

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun - and you captured the feeling.

  5. What a neat little selection of images to represent the day. I really like your choice of processing on the mule team shot and the flock of sheep and the pigs; the blur really eliminates clutter and helps give a dreamy look.
