February Photo a Day #26

26 February 2013

The photo subject for the today was “quiet”.  Taking a picture of actual quiet stumped me at first.  What is quiet?  Especially in my life.  I like background noise.  A lot.  TV, music, podcasts, whatever.  I am a city girl, so.. well.. my neighborhood is not all that quiet.  And I am terrible at meditating.


February Photo a Day #25

25 February 2013

Who knew this photo-a-day thing would get so personal?  OK- that is somewhat of a no-brainer, right?   Why do I ask?  Because today’s photo subject was “on my bedside table”.


February Photo a Day #24

24 February 2013

First, another apology.  Today’s photo subject was “cloud”.  All I could think of when I saw this subject was a photo I took in Chicago several years ago.  I was out there for a family reunion.  It was an absolutely gorgeous August day and we all went for a walk.  I really can’t remember exactly where we were - it was in one of the western suburbs - and we were walking along a trail when we came upon a lake.  This is where I took the photo that I am posting for today’s “photo-a-day”.


February Photo a Day #23

23 February 2013

A little behind again, but hey - it was a weekend.  Saturday’s photo subject was “word”.   So, I spent all day with my camera, taking pictures of words wherever I went.  Which was weird.  I did take other pictures too!  But going from taking a photo of a gorgeous landscape - I was in the middle of VA wine country on Saturday - to taking a picture of a single word on a sign is… well… a little strange.


February Photo a Day #22

22 February 2013

Work has been hard lately.  I mean seriously, frustratingly hard.  I am learning a new piece of tech these days, which is pretty awesome, but, at the same time, obnoxiously crazy and seemingly impossible.  The learning curve is getting better, but it has been a long time coming.


February Photo a Day #21

21 February 2013

Today’s photo subject was “full”.  Today was also a crazy busy day at work (from home), so I needed to find something “full” around my apartment.


February Photo a Day #20

20 February 2013

I have been falling a little behind in my photo taking again, so here I am, working on two photo posts at once.  Yesterday’s photo subject was “where I stood”.  Since it is tax season and the end of winter, I have been doing a little bit of organizing and cleaning around the apartment (more-so than usual, that is).


February Photo a Day #19

19 February 2013

Today’s photo subject is “I am….”  I decided to take this opportunity to take a self portrait.  Probably cliche, but I have been meeting to change up my Facebook profile picture anyway, so why not?


February Photo a Day #18

18 February 2013

I had a fantastic weekend.  So fantastic, that I just found the time to work on yesterday’s photo of the day.  Typical I know.


February Photo a Day #17

17 February 2013

This weekend has officially been my concert-going marathon weekend.  Four concerts.  Five days.  Last night was another Eddie from Ohio concert at the Birchmere.  And yesterday’s photo subject was “in your hand”.  It just felt right to take a picture of my concert ticket for this photo.  Another great show!


February Photo a Day #16

16 February 2013

As you probably read a couple of days ago, I have started to take some liberties with this photo-a-day challenge.  Today (or, rather yesterday at this point) is another one of those liberties.  Don’t worry - I did take a picture this time.  But there’s a (long) story to go with it.


February Photo a Day #14

14 February 2013

Well, assuming I have a following here, you have been following my photo-a-day journey for just about 2 whole weeks.  That is amazing - that both I am still taking pictures and you are still looking at them.  So… thank you!


February Photo a Day #13

13 February 2013

Today’s lucky photo subject was “walking”.  Sadly, I completely forgot about it until I got home tonight… after dark… in the rain.  I went for a walk around my complex.  Looking around my neighborhood, I realized it is not a particularly inspiring or visually interesting area.  So, instead, I decided to look down.


February Photo a Day #12

12 February 2013

I had a really bad day today.  I had some conversations that verged on the completely ridiculous, which made my day… well… ridiculous.  How do I cope?  I baked!  In my office!  Well… home office.  This telecommuting thing can be kind of awesome sometimes.


February Photo a Day #11

11 February 2013

Today’s photo subject is “entrance”.  Now, I really did not want to take a picture of a door, because that felt really boring and obvious.  However, how else do you really enter a space?  It is through a door or an archway or some other separator.


February Photo a Day #10

10 February 2013

I am having the world’s laziest Sunday.  I woke up after 10:00 this morning.  I have spent most of the day on my couch.  I did work on my website a little and take some pictures, but I have never really considered that to be work.  I spent a good chunk of the afternoon reading.  And I am still in my pjs.  It has been glorious.


February Photo a Day #9

09 February 2013

Day nine’s photo subject was “guilty pleasure”.  The dictionary defines a guilty pleasure as something you do that brings you joy, but you feel guilt about doing.  This is probably going to sound like a cliche… or a lie… but I do not really do things that make me happy and that I am embarrassed about.  However, I did think of one thing that I do - or rather eat - that makes me happy but I probably should not have quite so often.


February Photo a Day #7

07 February 2013

Welcome to day 7!  I have been doing this photo-a-day thing for a whole week… can you believe it?
