Photography, Project 52

Project 52- Week 1

January 8, 2014

I initially planned to do a 365 but I’m not going to put that type of pressure on myself. I thoroughly enjoy doing these because they allow me to capture memories. I won’t tell you how much I have come to appreciate the photos that I’ve taken for this blog. I know people say when you blog sometimes you totally forget to live in the minute. While it is a gift and a curse, the gift is capturing your life in words and photos that you can look back on and see growth.

This year I am going to attempt a Project 52. I’ve added my own spin. Each week there will be a black and white and a color photo.

We’ll see how it goes.

    I love the one of her blowing her manicure! She looks so adult! I love black and white!I have to be careful that my whole 365 is not black and white!

    I LOVE your idea about the one b&w and one color photo. I just might have to do that next year!!
    She is just the cutest as well. The photo of her and her 1st manicure is super cute.
    Thanks so much for taking part in the link up! Hope to see you next week!

      I’ll be by next week.

      I take so many photos in a week, this won’t be hard. I just didn’t want to be tied down to one a day. I would surely miss the mark on that one! I’ll be sure to include the badge next week. Forgot to add it this week.

    I love the first one and I have a thing for B&W lately. I’m doing a 52 project, I update every Sunday

    I love photography and capturing our everyday life on my blog {through images and words} helps me put things into perspective without going through all my offline journals.

    I did a 52 Project last year and it was amazing to go back and look through every picture. At the beginning of the year AOI was so tiny and at the end her personality was beaming in the pictures.

    I love black and white photography! You’re little girl is growing up so fast, and looking so cute blowing on her nails! I don’t know what it is about a 365 scares me at the moment. So, I’m also doing a 52 week challenge. I’m focusing on one object for the whole year (pray for me). It’s my first challenge so we’ll see where I go with it.

    Awwww! How cute and DIVA is that with the manicure. You definitely caught a great moment with that. I am GLAD that my kids aren’t tall enough to reach our fridge yet! Well they are tall enough to reach the handles, but not tall enough to get things out of it. ;-) Can’t wait to see more of these!

    Great photos to start the project. I guess you’re doing a project “104″, lol
    I found your link on La’Shawn’s Project 52, so if you keep up with it, I look forward to seeing more of your photos!

    • Reply Mimi January 10, 2014 at 9:45 pm

      Yes! It will probably end up being more than 104!! I just couldn’t sign up for one a day. I am so literal I would feel like I didn’t do it right if I didn’t get one every day! Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the black and white! I too, am guilty of taking lots of black and whites, so if I am not careful, I will end up with WAY to many. I am doing Project 52 as well. If you keep up with the linky party, I am sure I will be back to check out more! I may even copy your idea of doing a B&W and a color!

    • Reply Mimi January 10, 2014 at 10:31 pm

      Black and White is my fix all. If the exposure or anything is wrong B&W makes it all better. Have at it with the one B&W and color. They are all memories to keep and cherish. Thanks for stopping by!
