MY365: A Personal Project for 2014

At the end of 2013, I decided that I wanted to do my own 365 project.  For those of you who may not be familiar with this, it is quite simple.  I must take a photo every day of the year, for 365 days.  They could be photos of anything, just as long as it chronicles a part of my day.  I can use either my phone, or camera, but at least one has to be used every day.  Amazingly, this is the one thing I’ve been able to keep up with even while ill, as my cell phone or camera were never that far away.  Subjects to shoot have been challenging, as I didn’t want to have three weeks straight of photos of my cats and bird (since I did spend three weeks in bed, with them by my side).

I have loved what I’ve done so far, and I’m finding it both challenging and rewarding, and it has really pushed my boundaries as to what I envision photographing every day.  Are there quite a few of my animals – of course.  But it does get less as the weeks go by.  So, what I hope is at the end of every week, I will have a wrap up, which I will share here.  But to catch up, I’ll be posting all of January, February, and the first half of March on their own posts, just so I don’t have a ton of new posts coming in one week.

So, without any further ado, here is January!

Happy Blogiversary!

Well, this month marked the one year anniversary of my blog.  I think my first year went okay.  Yes, just okay.  I could have blogged much more, posted much more, and just did more photography in general over the last year.  So, that’s my goal for this year, more shooting and more blogging.  Looking back, I didn’t even blog once a week, so that’s my goal this year – at least one blog a week, showing something new that I’ve photographed.

So, here goes!  Since I started off this whole adventure with a photo of one of my pets, I thought I’d celebrate the one year of this little blog with photos of my pets again.  I was working from home the other day, on account of the big storm that we got – I mean the tons of rain we got (sometimes the news makes a big deal of nothing…).  Sometime in the afternoon, Ritchie the cat and Taz the bird ended up in the office with me, and the sun started breaking through the clouds, shining into the room.  So I took this opportunity to take some photos of them.  Here are some of my faves!

New Shots of Taz

I decided to play around with the new camera today, taking photos of Taz, my black headed caique.  These are the first shots I’ve taken of him since Loki passed, as he’s finally adjusted nicely enough to let me have the camera out without him wanting to kill the strap (he’s got a thing for camera straps).  I’m loving the new camera – the quality is so much better, it’s so much faster, which is good with a parrot that never stops moving 🙂
