Sunday Selections – #25 Me on the 365 Popular Page

Today I am once again joining in with Kim at Frog Ponds Rock (this week hosted here by her daughter, the amazing and talented Veronica )in posting some pretty pics of my life…….

I have been lucky to have four of my photos appear on the Project 365 Popular Page in the past few weeks.  I don’t know that they are particularly good, nor that they are what I consider my best, but I am thankful to have them featured … ironically some were featured on what were very sad days for me (anniversary of Greg’s death, and a tragic event that occurred to a school family just days before).  Seeing my photos on the popular page gave me such a lift when my spirits were low….
reflections on 365 Project

My first photo to make the popular page was one that I had heavily edited … but still, I was so happy to be featured (7th Feb, 2012).

Hanging on. on 365 Project
This one was up for a long time as well, beginning 28/2/12

This one also stayed up for several days, first appearing on March 1, 2012 – the anniversary of Greg’s death. It was such a lift to my spirits to see it featured.

Finally,
Together on 365 Project
This photo was taken on March 1 as the children and I visited Greg’s grave. I don’t think it’s technically good, but the response from kind people on 365 was overwhelming and it was featured on the popular page on March 3, 2012.

Such a seemingly simple thing that has lifted my spirits … I have been striving to improve my photos since I began Project 365 just before Greg died and it has taken me two full years to take photos that warranted an appearance on that page…. a page that has provided me with inspiration and technical information to enable my to develop as a photographer … to the point where I consider myself to be reasonably OK at taking photos!

I am so thankful…

Just as I’m thankful to all you kind people who continue to follow my journey here and on my other blog(s).
