My poor blog needs a little TLC, but that isn’t really what it is getting tonight. More like a hastily thrown up blog post, so I can show off our pictures from vacation that I should have posted a month ago, but whatever. 😉
Myrtle Beach 2013 from Mike Bowden on Vimeo.
And a funny gif Michael made for me. Just cause.
I have made my decision! For my 365 Project, I am taking a photo a day. Sounds so simple, right?
My goal for this project is to try and tap into my inner photographer. At this point in time… we aren’t all that in tune with each other. 😉 Each day I will take a picture that will offer a window into my life but I am going to try my best to think outside of the box here. My usual picture taking style lends more towards family snapshots of activities and while those are fabulous to have, I want to try and come at this from a more creative angle. At least on some days!
Also, I am going to use this project to learn how to actually edit photos. I seriously NEVER edit any of my photos. I am not planning anything too fancy. I will likely never take on learning something like Photoshop, but iPhoto does offer a good bit of editing options for simplistic me and I am ready to start using them.
This blog post is where I got the idea from and it offers a lot of good ideas on how to go about doing a Photo a Day Project. – Project 365: How to Take a Photo a Day and See Your Life in a Whole New Way
I also found this one. There are lots of good ideas and links for 365 projects. – Project 365 + Other Alternatives
We spent our New Years weekend in Chattanooga enjoying some family time. This picture will alway serve to remind me of our visit to Ruby Falls and the fact that it maybe isn’t the world’s greatest idea to take a cranky toodler on a long guided tour through underground caves. 😉
ONLY 364 more to go!
2011 has been a year for some of our lowest lows personally but our highest highs financially. I am happy to say that we managed to end the year from a mostly positive place and I hope to see things stay that way for 2012. My goal for this year is to follow my instincts and follow “the happy”. I do have more defined goals for this year but I feel like to write them out would be jinx worthy. 😛
BTW, Happy New Year!
