Project 365: the Second Week

As I started this challenge, my oldest daughter, Avalyn (9) decided to try it as well.  She has done better taking pictures every day than I have, but I will use the excuse that she is not pregnant! :)

Day 4: Something Green  The Lord's day is always a hard day to get pictures.  I didn't take a picture of something green, but I did get a couple of the kids sitting on our new bench that Adrian and Kyle built.

I couldn't pick just one because the kids' expressions are so funny!  I love it!

Day 5: From a High Angle (I understood this to mean that I needed to by higher than the subject of my picture.)

My dog, Dylan, can be really attentive when bribed.  He was a pretty good subject and sat really patiently waiting for another treat!

Day 6: From a Low Angle (I understood this to mean that I needed to be lower than my subject.)

Sophia has always loved to climb, so it only seemed right to get a picture of her climbing on our second floor banister.

Day 7: Fruit  I wasn't feeling well on Wednesday, so I didn't manage to take any pictures, let alone one of fruit.

Day 8: A Bad Habit

 Keira has always picked.  She used to pick at her fingers so badly that they would bleed.  We had to tape each of her fingers to help her stop.  For a while, she seemed to be doing better, but recently, she has started picking again. She has been picking at her lips and some at her fingers.  Giving her some chapstick has helped!

 Day 9: Someone You Love

 This week, Kyle has asked me to take his picture.  He didn't want to be left out as I took pictures of two of his sisters.  So today's theme was a good one for him.

 Day 10: A Childhood Memory  I couldn't think of anything that seemed to fit a childhood memory!  Avalyn said, "What am I supposed to take a picture of?  I am a child!"

I took several pictures of my most recent sewing project.  About a week ago my sewing machine stopped working.  Adrian took it apart and seemed to fix it, but when I went to use it, it gave a different error.  Adrian took it apart again, and managed to make it work!  I started with a simple patchwork quilt.

So as you see, I haven't been completely consistent, but that is not what this project is about for me.  I want to take more pictures.  I want to be more aware of the little things that make up our lives and document them.  I want to learn to use my camera better.  From that, I am doing well.
