Finally... the new blog.

I have begun a new 365 project. I started on my birthday, which was the beginning of this month. If you followed before and would like to continue, here's the link to my 2011 project. { Picture Window }

It is a 365 with no rules, so sometimes I'll post a picture for every day, sometimes more. And sometimes, when I'm struggling with my creativity or just time, there will be images that represent a span of time.

I had so much fun growing in my photography last year that I want to see what I can do in 2011.

on we go!

Just a Few to Wrap Up the Year…

Part of me, deep inside, seriously doubted that I would stick with this project.

I am, to be honest, stunned that I have.

I thought, also, that I would be relieved to finish and take a break for a few weeks.

So I found myself very surprised just now to tear up as I typed the title for this, my final post of 365 Days of Shaniblue.

If you’re looking to grow as a photographer and as a person, I highly recommend this project 365. You don’t need a lot of rules. Just stick with it.

So gratifying. I’m beginning a new one in one month- on my birthday.

I’ll post a link as soon as it’s up and running.

Thanks for looking!

Day Three Hundred Sixty Three


I spent a few days in a Christmas fog and hadn’t realized that my auto-focus lens wasn’t necessarily auto-focusing.

Good memories are just as good fuzzy.

It’s a good thing, because there’ll be more fuzz.

We were on a Christmas shopping date. Together. No kids.

Of course we grabbed a burger at Dandy’s Drive In. I took his picture.

The terrible people in the car across from us laughed...

Day Three Hundred Forty Six


I woke up way too early on this Sunday Morning, but the sight of the freshly decorated tree always takes my breath away. So, like any born photographer would, I grabbed my camera sometime just after 12:30 and tried to keep the memory forever.
