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.

Day 11- Red Berries

Today I spied these vibrant red berries (actually several clumps of them) on trees that neighbor our playground. I've looked everywhere to find out what type they are, and/or the type of tree they are growing on. No luck. Anyone have any idea? I've never noticed them before this year, but perhaps I just wasn't paying close enough attention!


  1. No idea what kind of berries these are but I love how the bright red contrasts against the vibrant blue sky.

  2. Sorry, I can't help you with identifying the berries either. Love the picture - such bright, crisp colours. Just what I needed today when it just keeps snowing over here!

  3. I don't know what they are, but they certainly add colour to the scene. And some birds will be very happy to find them.

  4. Wow, this photo really works. I love the sharp point of focus. The berries are so shiny, they almost look unreal.

  5. I don't know either but what amazingly bright cheery color.

  6. Wow, they look like a delicious cluster of red grapes. Nice framing against that beautiful blue sky.
