Project 365 Days 13 and 14

Continuing my Project 365 to the end of the second week, here's two groups of pictures from the last two days. Starting with the smaller one, on day 14:

The larger group of pictures came on day 13:

Project 365 Day 12

I was walking the neighborhood, and my muse caught sight of the trees. "You will take a picture," she commanded, "and then you will post it on your blog and Google+." So I looked for a good shot. The first set of trees I considered looked right at first glance. But I decided on another. Here's the picture I took.

Project 365 Day 11: One Random Picture of Y2K Bugs

Like I said, pulling off a complete Project 365 can be tough. Sometimes laziness attacks, and we have to fight back. However, when all else fails, I have the perfect reserve models: Mr. Pac, the Plotbunny, my Silly Slammer, and the Y2K Bugs. Case in point:

One picture, on a whim. It gets me through one more day of Project 365...

Project 365 Day 10: A Walk to the Store

No, I didn't take pictures of the coffee I bought. I wasn't feeling the FriendFeed food meme vibe today. Rather, I was struck by patterns of sun and shade while I was walking up the street, and entirely on a whim I decided to take pictures of the big empty parking lot along the way.

The tree-lined street:

Project 365 Days 8 and 9: That One Picture a Day

Just one picture a day for the last two days. I couldn't be bothered with taking more than one this time. At least I got one in each day...

Here's the Day 8 picture. I figured I'd do something with that recurring FriendFeed food meme. It's not pretty. Even I'm entitled to the occasional dud. (Note: I immediately ate that last piece of birthday cake.)

Today's picture is a casual shot I took on the way home from a cousin's 18th birthday party:

And that's it. The thing with Project 365 is, you take at least one picture a day. It continues as long as you get that one picture. So far, I've at least gotten at least one, so it continues...

Project 365 Day 7: Forcing Myself to Take Pictures

One day, two pictures. I had to drag myself away from Google+ to take them. The trip outside turned into an expedition to Value Village, where I found the Journey and Supertramp albums I was missing and a copy of James Woods' How Fiction Works for my very own.

Today's weather: overcast and kind of gloomy. But not even the worst weather stops the dedicated photographer. Nothing would probably stop me but, yes, Google+...

Project 365, Days 4-6

I'm not exactly keeping pace with the pictures in this blog during this Project 365. The two previous times, I had no such problem because I had that blog at Photoblog. Anyway, I'll work backwards here, starting with yesterday's pics:

I'd say the middle one was a tad underexposed. I'll have to go back to my photography class material so I can remember what the problem and the solution are.

Project 365 Page 3: Google+ Profile Photos

For day 3, I decided to take a couple pictures of myself and post them to my Google+ profile. They're not in my "Project 365 2011-2" Picasa album, but in my Profile Photos. I'm considering using one for Facebook.

One thing that bugs me is that my face doesn't look quite so pretty on camera (or at least on my camera) as it does in the mirror or to other people (especially women). But they're usable, and they're on my profile...

Doing the Project 365 Thing Again: Days 1 and 2

I made the determination I would start a new Project 365 this year and carry it through. I also proclaimed in this entry that I'd be doing it on my Posterous blog. One thing happened that derailed my plan a bit: I got an invite into Google+, the new social network. Problem: it's easy to post pictures on Posterous, but much harder to import them into a post there. So, I'm doing my new Project 365 here.

For those who don't know, in Project 365 you take and post at least one photograph a day. It's harder than it sounds.

Here's the entry for Day 2. Since JulNoWriMo '11 is now on, I decided to take a picture of my Plotbunny with friends. Behold "Group Portrait With Plotbunny":
