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. …

Ten on Ten August 2013

The 10th of the month hasn’t been cooperative the last few months, so what a joy when the 10th of August happened to fall on a day when Anderson and I decided to hop in the car to meet Grammy and Papa in Ogunquit, ME.  Ogunquit has so many good memories for us.  The first real “weekend away” for Chris and I happened to be in Ogunquit eight years ago.  It is a beautiful place with the Marginal Way walk and Perkins Cove and the BEST coffee shop on the planet.  Where else on earth can you have a really great cup of coffee while sitting on the beach? So, here is our little day in Ogunquit on the 10th of August. For more information about Ten on Ten, visit my inaugural Ten on Ten post or the creator of Ten on Ten, Rebekah Gough. It was a good day.

Ten on Ten May 2013

Well, here I am on May 30th posting photos from May 10th!  That’s how life has been lately.  I think in blog posts, yet there isn’t always time to actually write them or unload photos from my memory cards.  Now that photography is incorporated into my work life, I’m not always using my personal computer, and I’m sometimes using loaner cameras, my photo organization is an utter mess.  Next up for me: some sortof photo workflow.  When working on photography books at my last job, there was always this term floating around: workflow.  It never really mattered to me.  I totally get it now. Oh do I get it.  I think I see Lightroom in my near future. Anyway, back to Ten on Ten.  You can read more about the Ten on Ten project created by A Bit of Sunshine here from my very first Ten on Ten last month. This happened to fall on a day I was working from home and I headed out on a solo road trip that evening, so I …

Ten on Ten April 2013

I love A Bit of Sunshine.  It is just that — a bit of sunshine in my day when there is a new post up.  Rebekah Gough is the author of this lovely blog and she is a crafter, a mom, and a photographer.  Her photographs are to die for.  She has an amazing style and she captures the spirit of her subjects, particularly children. Oh, and I got to meet her last week while she was in Boston.  Yup.  She’s even better in real life. She created the idea of Ten on Ten.  Every 10th of the month, take one picture each hour for ten hours.  I’ve been excited about it for weeks and finally, today (the 10th) arrived.  I admit, it was harder than I thought it would be while working.  I was working from my home today, so I did indeed take a quick photo break each hour.  I think the idea of an assignment like this is good for a few reasons.  First, it forces you to take the time to …
