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 86- Scraggily

This shot was actually taken on a sunny afternoon with crystal blue sky in the background. I was attracted to the scraggily branches that reached up. While processing it in PSE9, I tried an effect called Fresco, which almost made it look more like a painting than a photo! Think I like it, though!


  1. Cool shot. Great job on the processing. I love the silhouette effect. It's hard to believe this was taken in the middle of a sunny afternoon.

  2. Shelley- it's all the effect, trust me! :)

  3. I really like that tree! Great silhouette.
