Project 365: Weeks 9 and 10

The past ten days have sped by in a whirlwind of last-minute changes in travel plans, two weekends full of socializing, and life in general. Last Sunday found me in St. Cloud, Minnesota... without internet... So here are my pictures for "Project 365" for both this past week and the week before that.
Enjoy! :)

America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Admiration and Wonder

This is my submission for this week's contest over at I *Heart* Faces. The theme this week is "creative crop." I'm going to go ahead and make this my entry for both categories - kids and adults.

So here is the submission photo - a new auntie looking with wonder at her one-week-old niece:

And here is the original, as it was SOOC:
Thanks for stopping by!

Old World View

This was one of the most beautiful panoramas/landscapes that I saw on the trip that I took to Spain with my dad and sister in April 2007. I could've gazed out over this scene for a lot longer than the ten or fifteen minutes that we lingered! The fact that it was a gloriously warm April Sunday following a long rainy winter in Paris didn't hurt either. ;)

Project 365: Week 7

It's hard to believe seven weeks have gone by since I started this project! Forty-five weeks to go. ;) This week didn't go so well, as "productive photography" goes... in fact, I completely missed taking a picture three or four days this week! :-/ Better luck next week, I hope!

Project 365: Week 6

This was, in my mind anyway, a shoo-in for my favorite shot from this week. Like it? ~ taken February 26, 2009
