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.

Colonial Visit

Our second graders traveled back in time this week. We visited a local living history program that focused on daily life in Colonial Times. The students visited the bed chamber, sawed and chopped wood, cooked by the hearth, and visited the Colonial store thanks to a variety of staff dressed in period clothing. The shingles above adorned the outside of the structure. The barrels and ink wells I found within the store. I always love this field trip for its ability to bring alive history for 7 and 8-year olds in a very hands-on manner! The kids always remember this trip for years to come! It was a very chilly day, but that was also instructive to the kids as to the luxuries we have now in the 21st century!

  1. Sounds and looks like a great trip. You got some nice photos. I really like them in sepia - adds to the theme. Well done.
