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 64- Winter Road

I went out for a walk this afternoon, since it was about 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. I hate this time of year. The snow is tinged with brown everywhere. After a few storms where the rain froze solid, there is dangerous ice everywhere, making a daily walk dangerous, if not impossible. Potholes provide obstacles on just about every road. I am just ready for it all to be done! I processed this with an effect called "Sumi-e". I thought it made it look more abstract.


  1. I like the way you 'cleaned' up this shot. Nice processing. I like that effect. Just might have to try it. Did you download it from somewhere or is it already in your Photoshop Elements?

  2. The Sumi-e effect is part of the standard effects in PSE9. I'm guessing you'd have it in Lightroom too?

  3. I like the perspective - nicely done. I'm with you.....ready for some warmer weather!

  4. I love shots like this going down the road, like you I could do without the snow.
    I like your new St. Pat's background

    Fun - the verifier is antings add an 'r' and what everyone wants to do about snow appears.
