Day 90 - A Fountain

I tried Hipstamatic today. This fountain was at the altar at church. I took others, but I liked this the best.

Day 89 - I-pod touch Picture

I had a fun time with my daughter and her Appzilla App, Etch cam...We took lots of pictures of the two of us, but our faces looked "weird"...She let me use her device to take a picture of her flute and music sheet before she practiced....

Day 88 - Cold Water

It took William a while to put his feet in the water. It was so cold. This was also one of my last pictures I took before my camera fell in the water and died. So sad. I feel so lost without it.....Not sure what to do or what to get....

Day 87 - Clouds

As we were driving home William told me that the clouds in the sky were called cumulus. I didn't have a picture yet, so this became the picture of the day.

Day 86 - Cars

While waiting for an oil change in my car, I took some pictures of some older models. Not an easy place to take pictures, but I liked the colors so I gave it a try.

Day 85 - Playing Outdoors

After the kids got home from school we went outside to play without our winter jackets. It was nice to enjoy the fresh air. William loved climbing the old tree laying on the neighbor's backyard.

Day 83 - Lionfish

Day 89 - A White Fence

There is a local photo store that had a photo contest on leading lines. I looked everywhere for a fence like this to perhaps give it a try, but didn't find one.  That contest is over and today coincidentally they announced the winners.

Day 78 - Yellow Leaves

 We got more snow again last night. Two-hour delay at school. After taking the kids to school I saw so many trees like this one and it amazes me they still have leaves despite the harsh weather.

Day 77 - Me Monday

Another busy day for Me Monday, but it was fun. I couldn't set the tripod closer to me because of the rocks and the water on this creek, so the going back and forth to sit on the rock was hilarious.

Day 75 - Learning to Tie Laces

William really wants to learn how to tie his shoes. Daddy is teaching him how to do it.

Day 74 - A Snow Mountain

This is actually a BIG pile of snow in the parking lot at William's school. 
That's him today when I picked him up from school.

Day 73 - A Painted Rock

For safety reasons I took this photo from the car. This rock is located on a very busy road with no much room on the sides to stop to take a picture. I was also relatively far from it. I also think I would have gotten better results if I had taken my time and tried different settings.  Perhaps I will try again another time.

Day 71 - Me......Tuesday

I really wanted to do a Me Monday yesterday, but after a busy day I didn't think I could do the self portrait I had planned using the tripod.  I have to admit that before today I had only used the tripod once in my life when trying to take a family picture for our Christmas cards and that wasn't a lot of fun. So, I was having a hard time getting started. Of course I could have kept it simple and just used the i-phone and just take a picture of me, but that would be like cheating again for the second week in a row. Also, I wouldn't be having a real photo challenge, which is what this is all about, right?

Anyway, my initial idea didn't work out because I couldn't find a frame I was going to use in the photo. So, I googled ideas for self portraits and found a girl in front of a cork board full of pictures. So, a light bulb went off in my head. I have this board right next to my computer with some of the pictures I have taken of the kids and decided to pose right next to it. It was a real challenge going back and forth to preview each shot until I got this one. But, I was so glad when I was done because I finally did it. Sorry Pam, Mat and Erin for disappointing  you all yesterday. lol :)...But thank you so much for the encouragement!

A Flower

I wanted the whole flower to be in focus. Tried so many settings. Changed the aperture many times and still the whole flower is not in focus = Frustration....

Day 63 - A Caricature

Thank you, Pam, for the suggestion and letting me borrow your Me Monday idea. This is the closest I came to Me Monday. I am probably the only one who hasn't done self portraits in this 365 photo project or ever, really.  
Perhaps by having a Me Monday, it will make it easier for me to do self portraits. But, still not sure....
