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.


Photo of the Day

I participated in the 365 Project some time back.  I lost interest and deleted my account.  I once again feel the need to try take one photo a day that’s good enough to show the world.  While dinner was in the oven tonight, I figured I had 8-10 minutes to head back to the wild flowers behind our house.  The dragonflies came through for me again.

The orange in the background is some butterfly weed, greatly out of focus.  When I have a few days’ worth of pictures to show, I will figure out how to put a link in my sidebar to the 365 Project.
