Day Seventeen: Photograph Vertical Lines

Ok, no pre-amble -  here it is:

Caught sight of this this afternoon on my way home.

Just couldn't resist.

Until tomorrow


Day 16: Photograph a rectangular shape

Ok, so rectangles surround us everywhere. Our doors, windows, books, cd and dvd covers, the tv, boxes, the back-up hard drives, the fence posts. Everywhere I look I see rectangles. But I wanted to do something a little bit different. So I kept my eyes open for something different.

We see these everyday, but do we really SEE them?

Until tomorrow

Day Fifteen: Photograph Light and Shadow

For todays shot, I got a bit creative.

There are two photos today - just because I can ;)

Actually, I couldn't decide which one I preferred..

Until tomorrow

Day Fourteen - Photograph a Circle

We went for a drive today. Just 40 minutes from home.

We investigated a place we have been to before, but never explored.

I harvested several awesome photos, but I kept in my mind that I was looking for a circle.

This is what I found:

Day Thirteen: Photograph Colour

Thinking about colour again.

Not a lot around this time of year in the garden. Some pretty nasturtium flowers, but I thought I might try something a bit more adventurous.


Until tomorrow

Day Twelve: Photograph Light and Shadow

I think this one speaks for itself.
I love the patterns that light and shadow make. From the shape of a tree shadow, to shadows made by finer things.

Can you guess what this is the shadow of?

Until tomorrow



Day Eleven: Photograph Patterns

I spent the day today noticing patterns everywhere.

That's what I love about this challenge, every day, I focus on the challenge, and see so many possibilities around me.

When I got home, I looked for patterns, and what stood out for me was:

Until tomorrow

Day 10

Well, it is getting to be a challenge to find something to photograph after 11 hours at work. Not much time left in the day.

Limited to what I can find in the house as it is dark when I leave for work, and dark when I get home.

Mid winter is not the best time to take up a photo challenge! LOL.

Todays challenge is: Photograph a cross.

I thought about it all day at work again, and when I came home I looked around for crosses.

This is what I found.

Until tomorrow.



Day Nine: Photograph a Circle

Ok, so I spent all day yesterday thinking about this one at work, and set this one up.

I am enjoying these challenges, even though at the moment I really don't have time for them.
I just make time.

Day Eight: Photograph Texture

Pondering on textural possibilities today, I took my camera walking with Bella (my dog).

We went to Tuapiro, a wonderful wee pocket of forest just 10 minutes drive away from home. I figured the forest would provide many textural opportunities.

Sure enough, I came away with around 30 images of textures.

This has to be my favourite, because of the variety of textures in the one image.

Until tomorrow

Day Seven: Photograph a subject with dominant negative space.

Okay, so I been thinking all day - what can I photograph with dominant negative space?

Wandering around upstairs, camera in hand, I see my wee turtle, and I think - hmm, standing on a box, with the monotony of the grey sky behind - negative space.

So here it is:

Until tomorrow

Day 6: Photograph a Circle

Todays challenge to photograph a circle saw me wandering about my back yard, looking at circular things.

Holes in fence palings, wheels, a frisby, flowers, watering nozzles.

This is what won out in the end:

Happy shooting


Day Five: Photograph Colour (again)

Ok, so getting home after dark, after a day of thinking about photographing colour, what hits me?
My collection of paintings in process.

Until tomorrow

Twofer: 365:003 and 365:004

Today is a twofer.

Yesterday I did not get to post day 003

So here goes:


Day Three: Photograph colour.

I love the contrast between orange and green:


Day Four: Photograph Light and Shadow

The sun was very low in the sky when I got home tonight, and cast this gorgeous golden glow upon the wall of our living room.

Interesting that I could have used the photo for day three for both days . . .

Until tomorrow

Day Two: Photgraph a Pet.

I decided to capture Bengi-Bob while he was doing his vacume impersonation.

Until tomorrow

For the next 365 days, I will take a MINDFULL photo of something as per the directions.

A keepsake or an item that has sentimental value.
