Project 366: Week 19

I was behind a week when I posted my last set of photos for my‘Project 366 – 2016’, so I'm playing catch-up today, something that may happen often in the next few months. Because life gets in the way sometimes.

Week 19 was a real struggle. It's close to a miracle how I even managed to put together a single photo for that period. This is not my best week but it is a complete one. And that's something to be thankful for.

Side By Side
“It’s always more fun when you share some time together.”

Project 366, Day 133: Side By Side

What I've learned this week:
Putting in the effort is better than not trying at all.
Be satisfied that you fulfilled a goal even if the results aren't perfect.
Photography forces us to slow down and 'see'.
Remember to breathe.

That’s it for today. Wishing all blogging pals a beautiful day!


  1. Your photos are all so lovely!

  2. Love that dandelion gone to seed by the weathered wood -- PERFECT wabi sabi!

  3. I think these were all great! That squirrel one was fantastic!


  4. they're like ninjas with that food

  5. Your photos are always so beautiful. You really can capture amazing colors and textures. So interesting that the finch and the feeder are in the same color palette. Very cool effect. I really enjoy all your photographs.

    1. Thanks, Cheryl! That's really nice of you to say.

  6. Goldfinches are one of my favorite birds.

  7. Love the blossoms in your first photo! So glad spring is here.

  8. You are so right that photography forces us to slow down and take a good look. I have much more to do in seeing the picture.

    1. It is a great way to relax and simply focus on your surroundings.

  9. For not having time you did a great job! The squirrel one is my favourite.

  10. I concur with Birdie, great job! I love tulip magnolias and that squirrel looks so intense but my favorite is the dandelions with the weathered wood. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. That is my favourite this week. Weathered wood is a great subject for photography.

  11. I saw a vision of my child self playing outside in the Plants and Weathered Wood picture. How I miss those days and the sounds of day time. Every photo says so much here and no one would even gather that you didn't have time. xoxo

  12. Photography needs a lot of patience.... Which I have none whatsoever. Hahahaha!

    1. Not even a teeny weeny bit? I don't believe it :)

  13. Brilliant Martha ... they are all my favourite.
    It never ceases to amaze me the number of things we may pass in the day and yet we don't really look at them ... but of course we do in a photograph! Marvelous, I'm so pleased you chose to do this project, I've really enjoyed it... and will keep on enjoying it - please!

    All the best Jan

    1. Thank you, Jan! That is really kind. I like slowing down and noticing the details. It really makes for a wonderful experience.

  14. I think you did very well!
    LOVE the Dandelion seed head and fence boards!!

  15. I love what you learned. All true things. Trying really is so important.

    1. This is a challenging project but it's also a terrific experience. I've learned so much in a short period of time.
