1/365 The Ground Rules
Looking at that title, I guess it could be taken a couple of different ways. My subconscious self is on overdrive these days, I think.
Pushing ahead with my 365 day project, here are the ground rules I decided upon:
- Every photograph is to be taken, processed and posted on that day. I may try themes too down the road.
- Uploading might take place at different times. I am hoping that I can post in the early evening each day so there is some kind of continuity.
- iPhone and iPad only
- Take 12! will still happen every month (and again, anyone who is interested in participating, please feel free to jump in. If interested, contact me. And if you want to see what one Take 12! effort looked like, click the Take 12! exhibit tab at the top of the page.)
- I will also try to be better about posting “before” and “after” shots. I know some people find that interesting.
So as a friend would say, simple, but not easy. One of the things I also promised myself was that I would get out more to different places. So that also means to be a little more organized, which is not always my strong suit. As much as I like my street and backyard, it has gotten comfortable and it definitely is time to shake things up.
Having said that, today’s image is–guess what–a backyard one. We have had a lot of rain over the last week and the other day was quite windy. When I went out this morning with the dogs, I noticed all the camellias lying on the ground. I thought it offered a number of interesting possibilities. I ended up playing with this in iColorama using some presets I have never used before. The results were an interesting grouping of abstract images of which two are shown below. After looking at them, I also realized that another flower had emerged.
So here we go-Happy New Year to all-Let’s see what the coming days and months brings my way-
