365 Photography Project Thirty-Second Post

Sunday May 15, 2011 I obviously have a 'It Gets Better' obsession going, I like how it's moved from the internet to TV so very much. This commercial was a quick succession of several different vids, I only barely got Adam, this was the least blurred because the dude just kept moving around.

Monday May 16, 2011 Birdies play on our fence. Lauren actually took this but I was standing right next to her looking out her bedroom window so, it counts. These birds were doing that fluffing-the-feathers thing. Eventually the one on the left fluffed himself (I assume he is a he) right off the edge, dropping like a stone. The other looked over at him and I could clearly imagine him saying, 'Whatthefuck, dude?'

Tuesday May 17, 2011 This cat made an appearance in my 365 before, sitting on my backyard fence. Here she's (I assume she's a she)  sitting at the eve of her very own roof contentedly watching, off and on, me take her picture.

Wednesday May 18, 2011 First day of a major headache that followed me through the week so, courtyard!!

Thursday May 19, 2011 Because I got a little desperate, still had a major headache, knew I wouldn't be going ANYwhere but that I still needed to shot something so, my default tree with its cliched 'dapple sunlight' filtering through.

Friday May 20, 2011 Lauren photographing Juvenile Hall for a photo essay she's doing. As you can see/ read, she remembers things by writing them on her hand and though some are faded, this list includes at least five items.

Saturday May 21, 2011 Old building in an older part of San Jose which reminds that this town was once old west-like. One block away is Shaks Stadium!!

Just getting to these now since we finally have the power on again...for the moment anyway.

Your garden is lovely! I don't think I've said that yet, but I do like the neat vibe it has - like organized chaos with all the grasses and annuals mixed in.

I think, rather like fan fic, there's certain pics you have to take just as a rite of passage. :D

Also, remembering to snap a pic even when you feel like crap is an accomplishment in and of itself!

And, on a completely unrelated note, I do think it's awesome you two share photography together. My mom thought I was mental when I started the project. Now that she's seen the timeline of different things though (like our garden and the kitchen renovation) she'll ask (read: order) me to take pics of different things for her.

I like that, organized chaos, I could use that as the title to my memoir, should I ever write one and it does describe my garden well. I did make a plan, like 12 years ago, but some plants just grew way bigger than I anticipated, overflowing others, the tree especially but every one does have their place so yeah, a nice vib.

'Also, remembering to snap a pic even when you feel like crap is an accomplishment in and of itself!'
thank you for noticing, I think so too. Same goes for you.

I put a camera in Lauren's hands when she was a kid and just said, 'Take pictures, you'll learn what's good and what isn't'. She did take photography last year so I think the interest will stick with her. One of her photos, at the show, won a 2nd place so, that's nice encouragement. I think it's just so cool how your mom now sees the value, that she's even directing you in your 365...awesome. I only wish I'd thought to do something like this when we were younger, when Lauren was a child but, better late than never.
