Week 8, 365 Project… Reflections

Week 8, 365 Project… Reflections

Living in London I was astonished by a number of things – people exist without vegemite, an entire underground network is regularly brought to a grinding halt because of a couple of leaves (or a sunny day or a cold day), it’s impossible to find a hard/crunchy onion, telephone cards vary wildly in price depending … Continue reading

Week 7, 365 Project… Odd One Out

Week 7, 365 Project… Odd One Out

I really looked forward to this week’s theme because I imagined that there would be a fair bit of staging involved and hoped it might get me back into the swing of things. But what I found was even better. I may have started off piecing together photos but it all felt too contrived. Instead … Continue reading

Week 6, 365 Project… Above

After a dismal effort in Week 5, I really gave Week 6 a good old crack. I still failed a couple of days and I’m even seriously late on sending out this blog… life just happens sometimes. See what you think of the 5 that I took and vote for you fave. And if you … Continue reading

Week 5… FAIL

Week 5… FAIL

This week will always be known as Week 5 Fail. Bec came up with the deliciously dark theme of Underneath and I didn’t take a single photo. I was really excited about the theme when she told me, envisioning black and whites, gritty side streets and society’s underbelly-esque pictures. But it wasn’t to be, life … Continue reading

Week 4, 365 Project… Celebration!

Luckily the theme for this week fell on my alternate week to provide the inspiration. Luckily because this week was my birthday and also Australia Day. In Week 3 I mentioned that my artist sister said my pictures were “ok but same same”.  NOT this week. I didn’t look for pictures but just let them… … Continue reading

Week 3, 365 Project… ROYGBIV

Week 3, 365 Project… ROYGBIV

ROYGBIV – the acronym for the sequence of hues in a rainbow according to how the English language divides the visible light spectrum: it’s Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. I loved this challenge because I discovered an app that can tint images – Gelo – which just exploded my world. I had a … Continue reading

Week 2, 365 Project… Oblique

Week 2, 365 Project… Oblique

Wow, week 2 was just awesome. To come up with the theme I spent 20 minutes or so with a dictionary for a little inspiration and was really excited when I randomly flipped to Oblique. The major benefit of this week was an incident that happened in December, I slipped my L5 S1 disc. Pretty … Continue reading

Week 1, 365 Project… Letters

The inspiration for Week 1 of our 365 Project was Letters. It was a pretty excellent start to the year easily allowing for broad interpretation. I also had a pretty excellent start to the year spending a few days with friends at Lake Macquarie which also provided some great fodder for pics. My friend Bec … Continue reading
