365 Photography Project_4th_March Post

Saturday March 1, 2014_February reading plus_I read the first book of the Earthsea Six, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursala Le Guin and enjoyed it quite enough to continue on.
I read Open Veins of Latin America for my bookclub, it was rec-ed by Jimmy, Lauren's friend and Cindy's son, and it was brutal. Bru...tal!! if you want to know more about the exploitation of this part of the world from the 1400s Portuguese to the 1970s Americans, give this book a go.
I also rewatched My Favorite Universe done for the Great Courses people by Neil deGrasse Tyson because I love it so.
Modotti, a biography of the photographer, was an interesting read. She was a consort of Edward Weston who became a well-established photographer in her own right.

Thursday March 13, 2014_before I was all agog over getting little tiny still-green red peppers inside my big red peppers, while now it's double yolks in my organic eggs. The ever changing panoply of food.

Saturday March 15, 2014_I completed a task that had been bugging me for sometime wherein I had been putting stuff I didn't otherwise know where to put in the background white box. All is now put where it should be!! Of course, a couple of new projects came to light after going through all this which is really kind of cool :)

Friday March 21, 2014_Cindy and I went over the hill to get Lauren and Jimmy and while on the way back, as she drove, I took pictures of Goldie, and the kids, in the backseat. This is my favorite because it is me she's give a kiss to :)

Saturday March 22, 2014_We had our bookclub at our usual restaurant at 9am and when we were leaving I noticed this long branch pretty much just hovering above the ground and thought it lovely so, there you have it.

Friday March 28, 2014_Niles California_So David says, 'let's go antiquing' so I say, 'How about Niles!?!' so he says, "Cool' so we do. Niles is part of Fremont, the city where Lauren was born, we left it when she was 2. While there, she and I hung out in Niles a lot, many of our antiques come from this little district, but she hadn't been back since so, this was a trip down memory lane for me and a reminder for her. This, an establishment shot, shows the hills and the Niles train station. We drove.

I kept walking into the stores suddenly remembering them so well and even what I'd bought in them so many years ago. Lauren bought action figures of Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher here :)

A lovely window display with the palms, blue sky, and hills reflected, I really like how the dress becomes a part of the clouds.

I remember being so excited when we got a "double yolker". :)

That last photo is fabulous!

With organic, I certainly do seem to be getting double yokers more often :) and thank you, I really like the way that image came out too.

No More 100_snapshots
Well, at least I'll have monthly updates to console me.

Walter was one of those people - I think they call them 'nerds' - who liked to dive into a subject and find out everything they can about it. He did WWII and the Civil War, then decided to learn about the exploration and settlement of Central and South America. One book and he was so upset, he abandoned the project.

I love the composition of the Niles' street scene, with the palm trees and the clock balanced by the fir/evergreen.

The final picture is wonderful, but how do those doggies at the bottom of the shot fit in?

My office closet was analogous to your white box. I haven't had a chance to work on it yet this month - it's been an unusually busy couple of weeks - but I hope to put some serious effort into it after my seder next Monday. FanSee

Re: No More 100_snapshots
You will! and I have an idea I'd like to try starting with my next mission101 in October. Stay tuned. I believed I asked you this already but are you going to continue with List 4?

Maybe this was the book Walter read, it was first published around 1970 and it sickened me, I can tell you!

Thank you! I only took that one because Lauren said I needed an 'establishment' shot :) The doggies at the bottom decorate a tray that is leaning back against the table the dress 'maniquin' stands on :)

I had a closet that was analogous to your closet, the white box is just the last of it. Although is there ever really any 'just the last of it'? With the resolution of each project, amazingly, a new one comes along :)
