My Project 365:Photo 2

This is just for TheTheologiansCafe, who said he hoped to see a smiling picture before too long.  As always, Dan, your wish is my command.  😀

You can’t see my smile, but it’s there.  THIS is when I’m most happy.  Just me, my camera and something that’s caught my eye.  This particular day, I photographed a bunch of flowers, some bugs, a weird piece of wood, the sun and moon and spent a great deal of time chasing a family of geese around- on my belly.   And while nothing may ever financially come of the photos I took, I was at peace for that hour or so.  Just me, doing what I love.  I’ll share some of the shots I liked best, though they aren’t self-portraits, so don’t count towards my 365 goal.


This isn’t really in as good of focus as I’d like.  But the wind was blowing and shaking the flower.

This is the flower shown with me above.  It’s so pretty!

Goose family.  Mom and Dad with three little ones.

  1. =D .  You’re smiling in your profile picture too, so that’s good.

  2. I like how you showed us what makes you smile instead of just snapping a standard “cheese!”. :)~V

  3. those geese are MEAN!

  4. @Roadlesstaken – yeah, that was taken right after you sent me the shirt, though. It’s old.  😀  I have like pictures 3-10 ready to go, but I’m trying to space them out some.  I won’t reveal yet if I’m smiling or not.@TheMarriedFreshman – Yeah, the idea for me behind this project is to learn about myself.  To force myself to think what makes me, me.  You know?  So, there won’t likely be many facing the camera dead on, posed pictures.  Of course being self portraits I do have to ‘pose’ so the timer can go on the camera and capture me.  😀   I’m so glad you appreciated it and thanks for the rec!

  5. @TheBigShowAtUD – so, you’ve met them?? 😀  I managed to avoid their wrath, mostly by crawling commando style on my stomach and hiding behind trees.  And moving VERRRRRYYYY slowly.  

  6. they hiss at me and i threaten to kick them, even the little ones.  i’m not scared.

  7. @TheBigShowAtUD – sure you’re not.  Suuuurrrre.  

  8. Geese are cute …from a distance.

  9. @PeriwinkleAdonis – everyones hating on the geese!  Sheesh.

  10. I grew up near a pond. I’m scarred for life. They’ll chase you!

  11. @PeriwinkleAdonis – yeah, these guys had been chasing my friend’s kids earlier in the day.  They mostly just avoided me.   I mainly hate them because they leave ‘presents’ everywhere.

  12. You should do request for your 360 photos.  I want you to do a self-portrait of you stealing something from WalMart.

  13. @TheTheologiansCafe – I won’t step foot in a Wal-Mart.  😀  And this is as close to a request as you’re likely to see.  ;D

  14. i really like the bottom one.  🙂

  15. @MySecretLoveAffair – Thanks, it took forever to get it right…because the wind was blowing the flower around and this tight of a macro needs a longer exposure.  I’m glad I stuck with it, though.

    The last photo is amazing I love it

  25. @DiaryOfAPsychopath – @Greenviolinist – Thanks!@MisterWriter – feel free to use it as your computer’s wallpaper.  Once I stop being lazy I’ll also be adding it to my cafe press store where you could buy it as a print.
