Gull on Light Post

I actually took this 3/20. I added some special effects using Irfanview.

Can you believe in my history of digital photography (at least that is present on my ext. hard drive), I have not taken a photo on March 24th. I might look more into it...kind of interesting..sorta. I have a lot of CDs and DVDs of backed up photos. Maybe I'll check them sometime. Haha.

The Train (365)

Another throwback. Took this out of my car windshield in Bridgewater, on my way from home from work late one night.

:( (365)

April 2

So I guess I have a lot of catching up to do on the Project 365. Last one I posted at the time of this post, is 3/21.

The good news is that I have taken pictures for most of the days...hopefully good ones. The bad news is that I feel like it's a waste of time. I get no feedback at all, and I don't know if anyone is looking.

I know I'm mainly doing it for me and I enjoy it, but not as much when I feel like I'm the only one who does. So I might not bother continuing it, or maybe I'll give up blogging altogether, at least in the way I have been.

Have a good day.

Taken March 22, 2012
Strange the only 3/22 photo I have taken (didn't check any of the cell phone photos though), is a gloomy foggy one. Kind of sets the mood for this post. Haha.

Brat Cat (365)

Mila being a brat and the focus beep was annoying her too, it seems, as she was batting at the camera.

Frozen Spinach (365)

Photo taken Mar 14, 2014
After (or during still) a harsh winter there are some things in the garden promising to make an attempt to come back in the spring. This spinach, a few onions, a raised bed of garlic and shallots, and some carrots. I don't know how far they'll get before I have to have the garden tilled (other than the garlic bed) but we'll find out. Maybe I can even move some of them first.

Also, not showing any signs yet but assumed to return, are the various perennials; strawberries, the three mints plus the catnip, rhubarb, etc.

Spotlight in the Sun (365)

The driveway light with the sun shining brightly on it and reflecting like a prism.

First Shot (365)

First shot of a photo shoot with three pageant title holders. As they are friends of mine I have photographed them before. This was just a shot of Debbie to check equipment and settings, but it came out good.

What IS that up there? (365)

Mila has a fascination with this window. I can't figure out what has her attention, a spider, cobwebs (there are some tiny ones that move with the slightest draft), or what? She won't tell me.

Buick (365)


My Mom's car. It's a rather cold day. Not that that's unusual for March but we were just spoiled by some unusually warm days. That's how it goes.
Thanks, Mom, for the suggestion of today's photo. :)

Photo a Day

 Is there anybody out there?

So I see no real need to put Photo A Day as the title of these posts, as long as it and 365 are in the tags/labels. I think I may stop, and/or put (365) in the title like Jason does. Sounds like a plan.

Is anybody reading this blog? Just wondered as I haven't seen any comments lately. Don't mind doing this just for my own satisfaction I suppose but it's more fun and meaningful when I know others are looking too.

Sparrow. Wow!

/sarcasm - Not a rare sight by any means. Haha
And not the best photo technically. Best one I took today though so it'll have to do...I mean it's not really a bad photo, just not the best it could possibly be.

Photo a Day

Selfie Time!

 I put the leather headband on my hat and I like the way it looks, so I decided to take a picture while I was waiting for Jason at his appointment. 

I think I'll try stitching it in place to keep it from shifting around or falling off. Well it can't fall off completely because I ran the rawhide lace through some holes I made in the back of the hat.

Sign Sign Everywhere a Sign

Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind


Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign? 


~Signs, by Five Man Electrical Band 


Every time I see a sign like this one I think of Pee Wee's Big Adventure, one of the best movies ever!

I Tot I Taw a Puddy Willow!

Sure signs of spring!

While these pussy willow buds aren't at their full size yet, the good news is that at least they are budding.

I've also observed buds on several other trees in the yard. Lilacs, Magnolia, Dogwood...

It's sometimes the little things in life.

Besides, it's been a long-ass winter.

Testing! 1...2...3

Taken 3/6/2014
It's a camera mount. I was just testing the lighting in my little studio. Pretty nice.

The studio setup is coming around, but very slowly. Tomorrow I'll post a photo of how it looks so far. Not pretty yet, but somewhat functional at least.

This photo was taken tomorrow. Haha.

Oh Gourd!

Taken 3/2/2014
Some birdhouse gourds I grew. They have been drying out on the patio since fall.

I've never done this before so we'll see how it goes. Not sure what I'll use them for...maybe even birdhouses!

Stay tuned.

Photo a Day

Artsy Robin

Some photographers get artsy and creative with their photos when they didn't come out technically perfect. I assure you that is NOT to be ruled out here. Haha!

Yeah, the photo was a little fuzzy and the colors were NG (only due to the colorless time of year this is).

I think this came out pretty good. What do you think?

And they say it's a sign of spring. Yay!!
