Project 365: Week 35

11 Jul

Only 16 weeks left in my Project 365. Time really is flying, but it’s fun to look back and see how much my photos have changed (hopefully for the better). Here is Week 35.

Day 239 (June 27, 2014): Veins. I absolutely love this shot. I found this leaf the other day when I was finishing up a run. Without even thinking, I immediately reached down to pick it up, because it’s so rare to find a leaf this color in the middle of summer. I hadn’t touched my macro filters in a while, so I pulled out my 4x filter and took a few shots during the golden hour. If you haven’t been able to tell by now, I love texture in photos.

Day240_Fire EscapeDay 241 (June 29, 2014): Girl time. While walking around downtown, I saw this group of girls hanging out together, laughing and having a fun time. They all struck me as being so different from one another, but there was a common thread of real friendship there that was so obvious in the way they interacted with one another. It just worked out that they were walking in a staggered pattern like this, so you can see them all quite clearly.

Day242_Order hereDay 243 (July 1, 2014): Carriage House. This old carriage house is next to a quaint B&B here in town. I really like that they’ve kept it preserved and you can see in this shot (and the next), how they’ve kept the original doors and windows. Carriage houses were used to store carriages and often housed the horses that pulled them.

Day244_Carriage house doorsDay 245 (July 3, 2014): What’s wrong here? If you guessed that the “IIII” should be”IV”, you’re right. However, after sharing this shot with my photography group, a friend pointed out that some clocks are purposely made this way due to very inconsistent use of subtractive numerals. What??! Sad, but I suppose, true. I still remember having to learn Roman numerals. Come on, people.

Day245_Clock errorHope you have a fun weekend planned. I have a lot of packing to do before our move, so I’ve taken today off from work to get some of it done. It’s also our anniversary, so we have dinner plans tonight at our favorite restaurant downtown.

Any fun plans for the weekend? Have you seen any fall colors (leaves) this early? Do you have any carriage houses that have been preserved in your area?
