Daily (almost) photos

Posted in Uncategorized by sndybeech on August 6, 2012

A few years ago I did a daily photo project for about 8 months. Loved what it did to how I looked at the world. In July I was walking thru Lloyd Center when I saw something I would shoot in a foreign country and nearly passed by at home. Decided to try again. I have been trying but not managing a shot a day but I did¬† go back and find some older shots to include. Hope you enjoy. At first I was adding to the bottom but now will be adding them on the top so returners don’t have to scroll down thru them all! So here’s the photo that inspired me this time and then the latest …

July 20, 2012 Bridal store

I haven’t been great about shooting. I got a new camera cause the old one broke (it was pointed out to me in the store that I had a big dent on the front of the old one, on the lens cover, so it was my clutzy self responsible for the ill health of the old one). In any case, those days without a happy camera got in the way psychologically if not materially. Also, some days I do take a picture but it’s not worth sharing! so I’m sparing you ūüôā

July 21,¬† I missed the shot of the day as my camera was hiding in my drawstring vintage purse (I was in 1912 costume for a suffrage centennial event) when Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder biked past me on his way home in his costume as Senator Harry Lane–tails and striped pants and bowler hat!
