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 36- Icicles

This old building has been renovated (hence the soffit vents under the eaves). But it is still sporting some healthy icicles. I loved the shadows they cast on the building. Wish I could have gotten up closer.


  1. Yes, the shadows are a nice touch. With that many icicles it might be interesting to try taking a picture from below, looking up.
    Like the festive background you have especially for Valentine's Day.

  2. Wow! What an amazing shot. I quite agree--the shadows are very neat.

  3. Wow! Those are some massive icicles!

  4. Shelley- I wanted to get underneath, but unfortunately it hadn't been shoveled around the building- this was as close as I could get. You're right, though- that would have been an excellent angle!

  5. Cool shot. It's probably better that you don't walk directly below them. I hate to think how painful it would be to have one of them fall on you.

  6. Very good angle as it is - love the deep blue sky in the corner! People here in Finland are getting frantic about them - there are much more than the last couple of years. People are employing experts now to get rid of them!

  7. And I like the contrast between the horizontal lines of the siding and the vertical lines of the icicles.
