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 82- Sap's Running

What's beginning to become an annual ritual- my husband has tapped several of our maple trees again. The sap is running freely, and is getting boiled down each evening over our woodstove. Should be plenty of syrup this spring!


  1. Oh my goodness, now I am really showing how sheltered my life is! I never knew or even thought about, where maple syrup came from. Now you're telling me it is from the sap of trees? Well well.

  2. I love how you captured the droplet of sap. Sugaring season has started here as well. We actually have a few people who tap the trees in their front yard right here in the city.

  3. Wow - you make your own syrup?! I'm impressed!
