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.

Keys to.....

...okay, no clue! These were found in a metal box full of similar skeleton and more modern keys, amongst LOTS of things in my mom's barn. Most were kept by my dad for unknown reasons. We'll never know what they went to. And the bigger question...why keep them?


  1. You may never find out the answers to your questions but it seems your mom's barn is filled with all kinds of pictures and stories. Sometimes not knowing the story allows us to make up an even better one.
    Nice pic. May you continue enjoy the exploration through your mom's barn.

  2. I think they are beautiful on their own, such great shapes. I'm glad that blogger is letting me comment, it has been odd.

  3. Why keep them? Because they make an outstanding photo! That background is the perfect colour to show of the age of the keys and there seems to be a sense of mystery ...Each key has its own story - the lock to a treasure, to a room where love awaits, to a child's play house, to a room of secrets ...

  4. These keys are fantastic - they make a lovely composition and as others have mentioned, what a great chance to imagine....
