Project 365 | daily photos | july

I feel silly.

There.  I said it.

It’s snowing… beautiful little white flakes of snow falling ever so gently outside my window, making me feel excited for the upcoming holidays.  And here I am playing catch up with posting my daily photos.  You’ve seen perhaps January, February, March, April, May and June.  If not, click on the months in the previous sentence and it should pop up.  Now, it’s November on the calendar and July on my computer.  Celebrate a little warm sunshine, blooming flowers, beach scenes, lobster and fresh berries.  And then get back to the snow.  🙂

“In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other.

Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time,

this collection of weeks when anything was possible.”

ranunculus

my 365 personal project – new england and new orleans photographer

Thursday throwback to April … what a lovely month!  It began with an Easter parade  in New Orleans’ French Quarter, birthday celebrations with my wonderful sister, crawfish, grandgirls, and I discovered my love for ranunculus — these gorgeous blooms that resemble something between a rose and a zinnia, but grow in a wild way similar to tulips after they’ve been in water for several days.  Apparently, I love a beautiful mess.  We ended the month in New England via Birmingham, Savannah  and Hilton Head, where pansies and popcorn awaited us!  Such a fun month … enjoy!

365 | documenting daily life | maine and new orleans photographer

FebPics … what?

Remember when I said that personal work takes a back seat?  You can click here for a refresher.  And now you’re witnessing just how true that statement is.  Today is July 3, and it is hot and muggy.  Seems like a great time to post my February images, don’t you think?  😉

According to all the moments I’ve captured during February, I’m pretty sure I started in Maine and spent the better part of the month in New Orleans.  We enjoyed our sweet little granddaughters, partied Mardi Gras style with family and friends, started a knitting project went to the beach (that was definitely down south!), and even though the weather was on the chilly side in the Crescent City, it was nowhere near the cold New England was experiencing during the winter.

During this hot hot hot … hot …. spell, you may want to find some air conditioning.  Then take a look at the images that follow.  I recommend reviewing them  s l o w l y  so as to breathe in some of that coolness.  Enjoy!  As always, your feedback is welcome!  🙂

Personal Photo Project | maine and new orleans photographer

For those of you who know me, know that when I pick up my camera, I’m a very happy person.  I love my job, which isn’t a job at all because I have tons ‘o fun and meet some truly wonderful people.  I’m grateful for finding photography and for photography to have found me.   I’ve made this a business, and it’s a happy little business indeed!

But when I pick up my camera with no agenda, expectations and demands — when it’s just me, myself and my camera –my heart sings.   Lllllaaaaaaaaaa …. Can you hear it???!!!  THIS!  This is what fills my soul, feeds my creativity, allows me to observe, to look at seemingly meaningless things in a whole different way, and capture those moments — just for me.   It’s crazy good and I love it!

I just don’t do it enough.

2017: Project 52

So last year I participated in a Project 52 … that is, making and posting one personal photo per week …. which got me shooting more than I might have otherwise.  It was overall very fun, challenging,  fulfilling, and oh so pleasing to see the final 52 — my year — in its final form.  It’s worth noting that I do have one exception — week 48.  Well, that week was incredibly sad because we said goodbye to a man I have loved dearly for almost my whole life and my focus was not on making photographs, but rather on making a slideshow of his life to share with family and friends.  However, you will see his handsome and smiling face still added to Week 48 — a photograph I took when he was inducted into the Chevrus Hall of Fame a few years back.  It just feels right.

Before I share with you my Final 52, let me tell you what I’m doing for 2018….. any guesses?  Yup … a 365!!!  Stay tuned as I’ll share some of those throughout the year.

Without further ado …..  My 2017 week by week…
