Hello Sweet Readers! Here is week 3 of my Project 365 postings. Instead of a collage this week, I am posting the photos separately. I have found that I have been taking many more photos each day and it's getting hard to choose which ones to share! Life is pretty amazing when you really stop and take notice. There is so much around me that I have to be thankful for and it's all a reminder of how blessed I am.
The first photo, taken on January 17, 2010 is looking out my bedroom window. It has been dreary and rainy here lately, but in a way, it's pretty, too. The photo was taken close to sunset.
January 18, 2010 - This is out in my side yard. I have never really noticed these berries on this plant before. I guess I never really ventured out in the rain this time of year when they were producing. They are not edible, but they look good. I love the little bit of of sun we got this day.
January 19, 2010- This is a shot I took while waiting for my son to get out of school. It's sometimes a frustrating time of day dealing with all the drivers picking up their kiddos. Some people just don't get the "pull forward" aspect of a line full of cars. It didn't bother me this day since I was busy taking shots and making them all wonder what the heck I was doing! I've never, ever noticed palm trees near the school. I like them in this cold, rainy shot.
January 20, 2010 - We had a little bit of sun and the boys and I saw a full rainbow out our window. Of course I ran to get my camera and something to cover it with since it was raining, but I was able to shoot some fun shots. I had my 50 mm lens on, though, so I could only get a bit of it at a time.
January 21, 2010 - This was my son's 9th birthday. We celebrated last weekend with a huge party, but on his actual birthday, we had dinner at Spaghetti Factory (his choice). This was after some fun at Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate Rhys and Otto's birthday. (Rhys and Otto are are friends and neighbors who share David's same birthday).
Same day. I had to include this one, too. My sweet hubby and I met for coffee and had some prayer time together. See, very blessed.
Again, same day. Sorry, I couldn't choose which to share with you. These two birds (one hummingbird, one finch) were fighting over the feeder.
January 22, 2010 - We have one rose on our miniature rose bush. In the rain, it really stands out. In the photo above, I altered it in photoshop. I like the look, but I also like the one below, which is not altered.
January 23, 2010 - We had the pleasure of meeting up for dinner with some good friends for our wine dinner Saturday night. We meet with this group every couple months and always have such a nice time. Last night was no exception. (I actually didn't take this photo so I could be in it. )
Oh, we did not coordinate our outfits. It just happened to be that two of us gals wore hot pink and two wore gray. Good times.
I'd love to know which is your favorite shot.
Have a great week!
