Ten on Ten September 2013

September is so beautiful.  Between the garden, Anderson, and Grammy C being at our house, finding photo inspiration for Ten on Ten was really easy this month.  For more information on Ten on Ten, visit: a bit of sunshine.

Speaking of photo-related things, I’m extremely excited to be starting Picture Everyday with Tracey Clark at Big Picture Classes.  There is still time to register!  The first prompt isn’t until Monday.  I’ll share a bit about it after the class ends in 8 weeks.

Also, if you are feeling crafty, stop by photography.com to read a recent post I wrote on making sunprints.  Trust me, they are an inexpensive, quick, and rewarding project.  Plus they look darn cool on your wall.  These are made from herbs in my herb garden (dill, rosemary, thyme, and chives).

On to Ten on Ten!  I wasn’t able to perfectly time these to take a picture each hour for ten hours because of that whole “job” thing, but they are scattered throughout the day.

Happy September!  September, to me, means harvest.  We’ll be celebrating with carrots, onions, tomatoes, and lots of tomatillos if they’d just hurry up and get bigger.  Speaking of food,  we’re also celebrating with a fun day in Wareham, MA tomorrow for the Bog Jog and Local Food Festival (my first trail run and I’ve been a slacker this week – eek!).  All proceeds go to the Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership. If only Anderson was older, he could join in the Veggie Stampede!

If you are wondering what Cameleon is (mentioned above) – check it out.  “Cameleon doesn’t want to be your novelty, toy camera app of the week, it wants a serious long term photographic relationship.”  Hey, there is nothing wrong with toy camera apps (I’m an Instagram junkie myself), but if you are looking for a bit more control and less hipster filter action, you should try it out.
