april 4 {366}

I am backlogged on my 366 project.

Mainly because there are a handful of days (and growing) where one photo doesn’t sum it up. A series of photos does… so that means I need to write some blog posts. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging. But I love the idea of it more than the reality. Blogging takes time… I can’t just post a picture and run (that’s what Flickr is for). I need (and want) to tell a story. It may be a primarily visual story but still, it should almost always have some words to go with it. Then there is the downsizing of photos… it’s just hard to fit this stuff in. I’m not complaining… I’m sure many of you go through this same thing. I guess I just wanted to talk about the nitty-gritty of it all. And maybe offer up an excuse for my absence. I probably don’t need one. I could probably just post and run, right?

I guess this is a snippet of my internal tug-a-war, really.

Anyway, let’s get on to the pretty pictures, shall we?

These were my top two photo choices for April 4. I remember feeling a giddiness this afternoon leaving work… cause I took the following day off during the week just for myself. I had a bunch of errands to take care of but it still felt like a treat. The chance to sleep in on an odd thursday… total luxury.

april 4

I just started shooting Spectra this year and I have to say I really love it. I have been lucky to find a handful of old Polaroid softtone film and I am really having fun with it.

In the end, I chose the top photo because I feel like I take too many flower photos in my 366. It needs some more variety… I am sure it will evolve over the year but right now… my photos are very flower heavy. Understandably, I think since it IS spring right now.

More soon! Have a lovely day!

march 29

as part of my 366 project, i’ve decided to write and show a bit more about select days here. the kind of days where there is more than one photo to sum up the scene or day and they each matter.

Every last thursday of the month my book club meets. I don’t always go but try to make it more than not… especially if I read the book.

I adore my book club. I went to high school with nearly all of them, we have been meeting monthly for three plus years. It’s always a treat to see each member and to catch up.

The book we read for March was Still Alice. It was really great… fascinating, heartbreaking and heartfelt. I highly recommend it.

April’s book is Mudbound… I just started it. Looks like it could be quite fascinating!

Do you belong to a book club? If so, do you have a favorite book that you’ve found that way? I’m always on the look out for a good book.
