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.

Fall Perennial

I planted this perennial many years ago. It is routinely the last of my perennials to bloom. I probably should remember what it is... but I don't. Very tall stalks on it. Love the colors!


  1. I'm not sure what it is either but I too love the colours. I like the yellow specks of pollen on the purple pedals.

  2. Love the color too!! And the detail is fabulous! Nice shot. :)

  3. Fabulous color and great detail, especially in the center. I'd guess an aster, but no idea which one.

  4. Great shot. I love the detail and the the shallow DOF.
