Project 365: What! A! Week!

Well, I hope not every week is this exciting. I don’t think I could stand it! Could you stand another post about Project 365 this week? (It’s been so crazy, I almost forgot to post my weekly round-up, and that’s often my favourite post of the week.)

The week started off on a good note when this picture was the eighth of my collection to make it into Flickr’s Explore. I call it “Mama and Baby Coneflower” and it’s even prettier printed out on paper.

Saturday, which seems like about a million years ago now, was the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk. This was my favourite picture of the day, and one of the two I submitted to the official competition.

(This is the other one I submitted to the official competition. Like the Café picture, it makes me smile when I look at it.)

Despite the endless rain and abject lack of sunshine so far in this so-called summer, this little raspberry in my mother’s yard fought its way to ripeness.

One of these days, I’m going to capture a good bubble picture. In the interim, here’s a bubble wand picture. (I suppose it would help if he had the bubble end up, right?)(This makes me smile because for my first child, I would have prevented him from making the mess on his shirt.)

I’d been counting down to the half-way point of the project for some time, but I put no real thought into a fun way to represent “half”. I was going to do an entire half-breakfast (half a waffle, half an orange, maybe even on half a plate and half a glass of juice) but the day was so busy I didn’t get a chance. At the end of the day, I played with half an egg, half an apple, and half a glass of milk. In the end, I finally settled on this one (with a much more than half-full belly!):

You’ve seen this one before, of course. This is Adrian Harewood and the folks at CBC, snapped less than surreptitiously during my appearance on All in a Day. As I titled the photograph, it’s much more exciting than half a cookie!

184:365 Well, this is much more exciting than half a cookie...

Appropriately, I ended the week on another high note. I’d had a version of this picture in my head for most of this week, but I had to snap it first thing in the morning because there was rain forecast for most of the day. (I’d meant to be wearing my shades, but it was so overcast I’d forgotten them.) And sometimes, ten seconds is simply not enough time — if you look closely, I think you can still see my hair settling as I dropped on to the windshield just as the timer went off!

All I can say is thank goodness I was on vacation this week. I hope the rest of my vacation is a little less exciting…

I get strangely excited when my photos get picked for “groups” on Flickr… it’s my “they like me”, they really really like me moment. But explore… that’s an honour! Great photo btw.

Great idea to take a special photo for the halfway mark. I am going to mark that on my calendar.

Is the year half over already? I like the idea of “half of” something to celebrate. Hmmm…

Hope you aren’t flooded with all this rain! It’s a bit ridiculous. We went to Pattersons to pick raspberries a couple of weeks ago and you could see that the fruit crop would have been so much better with some more sun. Although strangely the blueberry place (past Rockland) has a ton of blueberries – so maybe the sun is not as crucial for ripening them.
