Project 365: Day 365

Hard to believe this is it!! What a year. I'm really glad I took so many photos (at least when I had a camera to take them...) I managed to preserve a lot of memories and good times, mixed in with a bunch of average life and some snapshots of random things in my environment.
There was sometimes a mentality of "oh! I'll save that for later, I already got my photo for today." I never quite managed to shake that, though I did try, after a few times the earlier photo wasn't as good, or as clear as I'd hoped it would be. I've learned to carry my camera with me at all time (Be Prepared, as I learned in Girl Scouts), which has been great. I've managed to get a lot of impromptu things, and capture snapshots that wouldn't exist otherwise.
I also hope I've entertained you this year-and-some with my photos. I never claimed to be a professional or artistic photographer, and thanks for enduring my blurry, shaky, poorly composed, or outright boring work.  I think I did get a bit better with photos this year, though the improvement could have been greater.
As for the future, I think I'll keep blogging when and if I feel like it. Don't go away, keep me in your blog feeds or whatever, but I'm not going to promise another year's worth of posts!

The large pit right next to the NES study room, complete with very noisy machines, lots of dirt, and hot humid sweltering air. Perfect environment for trying to get papers written!

Project 365: Day 362

For best effect, open each photo in a new tab to see the whole thing.

The view of "Pickett's Charge", one of the most famous parts of the battle of Gettysburg. Looking at this vista, you can really get a sense for the scale of the Civil War, as well as the multitude of moments when the observer looking back can't say anything but "Dear God, why?"

The view from Little Round Top.

Project 365: Day 349

Apologies for the blurriness. Hope the amusement makes up for it! We had a very American 4th-- eating a lot of foreign food, shopping, and watching some fireworks from the football stadium.

Project 365: Day 347

Cleocatra likes to sleep with her paw thrown over her face to keep out the light. It's incredibly similar to what AJ does when he falls asleep....
