Here are my picks for the November edition of the 365 day project. It's interesting to see how the overall colours from this month are different from the other months.


Jennifer Gregory will be hosting November's post. Have a look and see what everyone else has been up to.



 I think I've hit the first lull of the 365 Day Project which means that my camera isn't making an appearance until the last few minutes of the day. Like yesterday, when I took this photo of cutlery because it's what was sitting next to my camera on my way upstairs. Aaacchh… yellow cutlery. I set the camera back down and shuffled off to bed. Today I was determined to take a picture in the light of day. The camera was still sitting in the same spot next to the cutlery. I figured it might be easier to just work with what I had. I took the same shot, just in the middle of the day (shown below). It's almost identical in composition but the light is so beautiful. And that's when it hit me. That's when I realized that by waiting until it was dark, I was giving myself less to work with. I kept setting myself up for disappointment. The sun does so much of the work in a photograph, why not take advantage of it? Why make it harder than it is? Since I can't think of a good answer, I'm not going to do it anymore. It's too hard to be inspired when you're already dreading the results.


The First Snow

If anyone had passed by our house today they would have seen five huge smiles accompanied by five noses pressed up against the glass. Even though we know it never lasts, the first snow is a pretty big deal at our place. We would make it a holiday if we could.



A few cardboard tubes and some plastic circles

and some beads

makes for hours of infinite possibilites.


I'll Never Be Too Old to Miss My Mom

My mom and Sugi were here visiting for one whole glorious week.
Starting with the airport, everything seems emptier since they left.
