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 46- Character

Today's Daily Shoot assignment- Make a photograph of something old. Be sure to show us the character that age can give a subject. #ds457 My school building has been expanded four different times, from when it was built just after WWII, up until the mid 1980's. I teach in one of the older sections. It's been home to everything from kindergartners up to fifth graders (maybe older). Parents have come for parent conferences and stand at my door slightly stunned as they experience a little "deja vu", remembering when they came to school here. It's not the prettiest school in our district, but I'd thoroughly defend its character. There's a plenitude of it!


  1. I very much like this shot. Simple, yet powerful. Using black and white was definitely a good choice.

  2. I agree with Hood 100%. Couldn't say it better myself. Well done.

  3. Me too! Agree with Hood and Shelley. I like the shallow depth of field too.

  4. Black and white definitely fits the subject.
