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.

Gravestone Art

So I realize some of you will find this post just plain creepy! This decorative arch was made from a gravestone rubbing. I bought it at a regional genealogical conferences last year from a vendor who creates decorative, sculpted artwork from the beautiful (yet possibly creepy) images carved on old gravestones. This image was found on the headstone of a small child who passed away during the 1700's. The skull is a little spooky-looking, but the wings symbolize the little girl's "flight" up to heaven. Hey... Halloween's just around the corner!


  1. Creepy, yes but also beautiful in its own way. I like how you set it up with the black background. It helps bring out the design on the stone.

  2. There's so much history and a 'story' with such a shot. Very nice!
