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 30- Macro Snowflake

Decided to experiment with my macro lens today and the gently falling snowflakes that fell off and on throughout the day. I was amazed as I looked at the variety of shapes through the lens; so many formations that you just can't see without magnification. Felt a little like Snowflake Bentley! Why didn't I try this sooner?


  1. That's AMAZING. I'll definitely going to try this. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Amazing detail! Well done. I tried this with my old macro but I really need to try it with my new one. Now all we need is some snow.

  3. Perfect! I have to try this sometime!

  4. Wow, what a beautiful picture of a snowflake. I can't believe you were able to capture every detail of its shape.
