Default 2015 - Don's 365 Project

Well I thought I would try it again this year. I made it once before so what the heck.

New Year's day and I was contemplating starting another 365 day project. This where you take a picture everyday and post it. It's "like a box of chocolates, You never know what you're gonna get.". So as I reviewed my photos to determine what the first image should be to kick off the New Year and I came across this one. Not artsy or even inspiring, but an expression we have all used hovering over the first drop on a rollercoaster.


Day 2 - Went to our new city mini park to shoot down 2nd Ave. That's our building on the right. I love night shoots when the streets are wet. I wanted to take one of the market, but the Christmas lights are off now and the West Lake merry-go-round was packed up for another year.

Day 3 - Gray dull skies today in Seattle so I ran image through a software filer. A little like the blue and green acetate film we put on our B&W TV's in the 60's to get that sense of color. It didn't work then and not really working now but worth a try to save an image for day 3. Kind of a Jelly filled chocolate day.

I think you are off to a great start Don. I especially like your day 3 image even though what you wanted to work didn't...still a very nice shot.

Day 5 - On the way to meet Margaret for dinner at mama's. This is another mini park in Seattle, but I will need to take another shot in the future. You really don't get the sense of the design from this shot. Used an f/2 setting and may just have to devote a whole month to that aperture setting.

Day 6 - It's not often we have late afternoon fog and even rarer we have a sunset with it.

A couple of nice shots Don.
I really like that sunset with the fog one.
