365 Project, Day 2

23,526.  That’s how many days old I am as of today.  23,526 good days, bad days, amazing days, boring days, heart-breaking days.  Days spent herding children, learning in school, playing in the garden on the farm.  Learning to sew, learning to knit, creating in stained glass, learning to dance…no, wait, I never did that.

Somewhere along this progression of days, I fell in love with photography. Yesterday I made a decison to join the 365 Project (again), and to post a photo every day for a year — and 365 is a very small number of days in the big scheme of things.

For today’s photo, I went back to the wild flowers again.  I had a choice of pictures today as the bumblebees are out, the flowers are beautiful, the clouds were interesting…but it’s tough to beat a dragonfly who poses for you.


Are you wondering how many days old you are?  Here’s where you can find out.

    1. Sheri: Super zoom, a steady hand, and patience. I couldn’t do it without super zoom, 42 times optical (Nikon P510, but the P520 is out now). This is a little dragonfly, maybe 1 1/2″ long. He was probably 8-10 feet away from me down in some tall grass. Strong winds were blowing his wings down, and he’s holding onto that blade of grass for dear life. Sue
