Sweet, sweet robots

So far I have been failing on my project. I have not taken a photo a day, more like every other day, some days I have taken them only to delete them later. Oh well, I will just have to make it up. For the last few days I have been finishing up some tiny robots in order to get ahead for Christmas, these little girly ones are some of my favorites, sadly the pink one has no arms or legs at the moment...

Week 1

Well, week number one is complete! I am slightly ashamed to say that I took no pictures two days in a row. I have no excuse, only that I was uninspired one day and the next I forgot my camera, but the point is to challenge my creativity not stress it, so I'm not too worried about it.
It definitely has been a challenge especially when I'm at work looking at the same things everyday, however beauty can still be found in the familiar. The first image for day 2 is the view looking out of where I work:
And the inside view:

For Day 3 I did some sewing, a few robots for Christmas and a little birdy for the fun of it:

And lastly, for an assignment for my photography class I was instructed to take a photo of fresh fruit or vegetables and make them look "good enough to eat". Turns out all I had was an eggplant and some apples, the apples were not hard because they always look good, but there is no way an eggplant ever looks appetizing! However, I'm pretty pleased with the end result.

365 Days of Photographs

I have never fully embraced the world of blogging, I try but I rarely feel inspired and am not much of a writer. So, thinking on this I have decided the reason I've never embraced it is because I am a visual person, I think and feel in images not words. As an artist colors, shapes and textures appeal to me. So instead of trying to make my blog what I think it's supposed to be I am going to make it what I want it to be (which is really the point after all). With that said, in order to give myself a goal I intend to catalog 365 days of photographs, not only to add something more visual to my blog, but to keep me sharp and creative in my photography skills. I may not post a picture every day, but I will take one everyday and hopefully post them a few times a week. These pictures will have no rhyme or reason, they may be of whatever piece of art I happen to be working on, photo assignments for my class or just something I happened to have found pretty. the spirit of turning over new leaves, my first contribution is of a few leaves found in my back yard. If you happen upon my blog, I hope you enjoy the images as much as I do.
