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.

Turquoise Necklace

I finally got the RAM installed in my computer, and got both Elements9 installed, as well as iPhoto11. However... because things can never be straight-forward, my iPhoto is not launching correctly, and I clearly need to spend some time with this version of Elements, as it's not working at all like I'd expected (and like the trial version I had, or THINK I had). Thus, here is my pic of the day TOTALLY, UTTERLY unedited.


  1. Nicely done! Sorry your software adventures aren't going as smoothly as they should...

  2. I like the mixture of the colours in this picture. Good choice of background. Hope your computer problems are fixed soon.

  3. Good luck with the tech issues. Not every photo has to be post-processed. This is beautifully lit.
