This month I decided not to try to be perfectly equally balance in how many pictures I post of each of my sons. The littlest is around me most when I am taking pictures, so there he is. I admit I usually have an internal critic asking if I favor one over the others and what that says about me. Ah well.
This month I decided to take more pictures of myself. I was profoundly disappointed in 95% of them. The face I see in the mirror is softer, kinder, prettier, more alert and happier than the face I see in the photos I take of myself. Why is that?
This month I took a lot of pictures of food. I was conscious of myself intentionally stocking up on goodness and sweetness, preparing for a stressful fall and a long dark winter. I sought out bright bold colors. I tried to record this month of summer. I watched the light fall on different types of surfaces.
This month I felt frustrated with my camera. I long for a better one. This one is a moderately priced point and shoot. The close focus is not good. I am frequently disappointed in my shots in anything but bright sunshine.
I am doing the Project 365, posting one a day. I am keeping all my photos in a Flickr set because I can't keep up with another whole blog. Browse other 365 blogs:
