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.

Almost Time!

Relatives are on the way. Food is on the table. It's almost time to open the presents!


  1. Pretty red! Hope all of your preparations came together for a merry and bright celebration.

  2. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with all your family. I like the perspective of this shot and that the bow is the front focus. Nicely done. Merry Christmas.

  3. Beautiful glow to this, hope you had a fine time.

  4. I love your framing in this very pretty image; the large bow taking centre stage in the foreground with the hint of paper in the background is very effective, Nicely done!
