One month done and I am already noticing a stagnation in my pictures. Too much day to day life and not much that I would consider artistic or reaches. Apparently I have minor obsessions with my dog (knew that one already) and trees. I think that the trees remind me of being grounded but still reaching... And they give decent contrast to the sky.
Being that I have a job that keeps me away from the daylight hours during the winter months and other commitments with meetings, school, graduate school, and a host of other obligations and time suckers, I have found that I am trying to rush pictures some days. Though I have no doubt that come spring time and summer, I will have more opportunities and desire to be outside and thus will have some more inspired photos and hopefully a little bit more time on my hands, I must admit that I need a focus for the next month or so of winter.
So I decided that I am going to do weekly color studies. If I find additional inspiration, I will add other photos to the 365 blog, but I hope to collect my rainbow of photos by the end of March.
Feb 1-7 White

Mar 29-31 Rainbows- Hopefully this one will work out! Please play along mother nature!
I am excited for the potential of these next few weeks and can't wait to see what I end up with! If this focus goes well, I hope to do more focused projects. My number one project hope is to collect the alphabet and the numbers in found objects or places. I hope to create a poster for my classroom of my photographic alphabet and share my inspiration with my students when we do our geometry unit next year. I also would like to spend some time looking for faces in objects like THIS site!
