PhotoProject 365: Week 7

Jodi and I first went to Waterstones to look for deals then realized that only the independent bookseller down the street had the book we were looking for – This Thing of Darkness by Harry Thompson (highly recommended!). The Open Book, 10 King Street, Richmond Upon Thames, Surrey TW9 1ND Phone: 020-8940-1802 (November 29, 2006)

Needed a profile pic for b5media. This wasn’t the one I eventually went with – top of head’s cut off and the glasses are off kilter. (November 28, 2006)

Stephen’s been looking for a dolly since July. This Little Mommy Play All Day Toddler Doll was the only one that fit the bill. Here he is sitting in her bed with her. (November 27, 2006)

SPAM Fritters at the local supermarket. No, I didn’t buy it. (November 26, 2006)

Project 365: Week 3

I am so dead tired and coooold! The weather abruptly dropped to about 40 degrees F (4 degrees C) today and it sort of caught us by surprise. London weather up to now has been milder than I had expected. Not anymore!

Just under the wire to make my second post for NaBloPoMo, here are my weekly Project 365 shots.

The Robosapien V2 display at Hamleys in London. (October 26, 2006)

Cranberries in the pond at Kew Gardens simulating the wet harvesting of cranberries. (October 27, 2006)

Pumpkin running man, 6 metres tall at Kew Gardens. (October 27, 2006)

First visit to Costco at Reading, UK. Almost as good as the real thing. ;) (October 28, 2006)

I gave Stephen a haircut as I have since we moved to London in January. (October 29, 2006)

Cornish pasties from West Cornwall Pasty Co.. Read Bryan Appleyard’s take on it. (October 30, 2006)

Halloween! (October 31, 2006)

Mushrooms at the playground. No, I did not risk liver damage by eating them. (November 1, 2006)

No more river-front office for me while my mother-in-law is visiting. Instead, I get to admire Stephen’s massive toy collection. (October 19, 2006)

People literally hanging out (they’re upside down) in the control tower of Stephen’s new airport play set. Took me some time to put the nearly 40 pieces together. (October 20, 2006)

Humorous sign. Enjoy work! Just don’t hurt yourself while doing it. (October 21, 2006)

The first double rainbow I’ve ever seen. (Also, October 21, 2006)

If you’ve started your own Project 365: A Photo A Day, let me know! I’ve created a permanent page (you can find it on the sidebar) where I’ll list everyone so we can all enjoy each other’s photos.

I love my digital camera. I take it everywhere I go and if I happen to forget it (which is rare), I always miss a shot. Even though I always have my camera with me, I can still go days without taking a picture. That’s going to change with the Cottontimer Project 365 inspired by Photojojo.

Taylor McKnight’s six tips for documenting each day with photos (visit Photojojo for more details):

  1. Bring your camera everywhere.
  2. Make posting easy.
  3. Vary your themes.
  4. Tell a story.
  5. Don’t stop, no matter what.
  6. Post early, post often.

I’ll probably use flickr to organize this project especially since I’ve been meaning to get more familiar with it. I’m excited to start! Maybe I won’t even wait for the new year.
