It only takes one

I chose a random shot for my photo of the day because capturing these random moments is what a photo project is all about. My cranes for the day were busy reading a literature anthology to prepare for class. My photo prompt for the day was “hidden treasure.” Alice hid some treasure from herself out […]

Just like that bluebird

Cranes 34-36 of 1000 for 2016. “This way or no way You know, I’ll be free Just like that bluebird Now ain’t that just like me.” Rest in Peace, David Bowie.

A walk in the park

Lucy Peanut and I went to the park today, and she heard another dog bark (one that was inside a fence and just saying hello) and made herself bigger by hopping up on the nearest available bench. Alice, the little mannequin, was already there, and I intended to photograph her. I had to move Alice […]

Grant me the confidence

I’ve often been amused by the quote that makes its way around social media from time to time: “Lord grant me the confidence of a mediocre white man.” Because yes. I’ve met those guys. And no. Not all white guys are like that, mediocre or otherwise, but it is a joke, so it’s okay to […]

Just Start Somewhere

Cranes 25-27 of 1000 for 2016. The coffee mug pictured is by Wyatt Waters, a Mississippi artist. The building depicted is a real building in Brookhaven, MS, and yes, it does have a giant coffee pot on top. That’s what I love about the South. So it’s Day 8 now, and I’m still making cranes. […]

It was a dark and dreary day

Cranes 22-24 of 1000 for 2016. It was a dark and dreary day, but the friends were together, and a good time was had by all.

If at first you don’t succeed, try 110 more times.

Today’s dog challenge was “too much is not enough.” I thought about photographing Lucy Peanut with her toys because she does have way too many. Then I got the idea of photographing her with my toys. I have a set of sock monkeys that I keep in a plastic container safely out of LP’s reach. […]

Rest for your soul

Cranes 16-18 of 1000 for 2016 Made from pages taken from a Bible verse calendar. 1. Psalm 91:1 “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” 2. 1 Timothy 1:14 “The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and […]

She’ll have fun, fun, fun till her grading takes her free time away.

I went to work today, but I didn’t do any work because that hasn’t started yet. Instead, I packed up belongings from my office to move to a bigger office. I need a bigger office because life tends to pile up on me. My day went like this: –Went to the office around ten. –Packed […]

A little of this and a little of that

In the spirit of embracing my own hummingbird nature of flitting from one thing to another, I have updated several Facebook pages this week and joined a new photo challenge group on Flickr. I’m trying to keep my expectations realistic. My impulse is also to go after projects full speed ahead and then crash and […]
