Running as Fast as I Can

What to do about the catch-up on the 365 project!  I am about 50 shots behind and every day that I dither about the numbering puts me farther down.  For now, I am hurling up bits of stuff that I did not have time to get to before Christmas.  I also have a project going to clean old family photos that I picked up when we went to visit JG's mother over the holiday. Rejigging battered prints is a long, slow job, however and I know I will be slow posting those.  So, for now, the pickup bits and, if my damn internet connection will just pick up some speed, throwing a whole pile onto Picassa.  Then, when I see where I'm at, maybe ask for permission to jump.

 118/365  Copper windchimes.  Again, trying to capture the light and mood.

 119/365  An icy twig where I played with the colour values.  A lot!

 120/365  Dainty pawprints on the marsh.

 121/365  The Christmas Pointsettia.  Not enough depth of field.

 122/365 Our land is pure Canadian shield, with lots of outcroppings.  I particularly like this one that gets afternoon light.

 123/365.  Christmas Tree bird with the new camera.  My living room is painted a sort of 'cloud' gray.  Very useful for this kind of shot.

And, last but not least,
124/365,  So nice to come back inside and warm the fingers and toes.  I do not have a clue why Blogger stretched this shot vertically.  Rats!

 Onward!  (Trumpets in background, drums beating a tattoo).


  1. the twig shot is really cool, as well as the bird in the tree. oh, i long to sit by a fire and read a book! in the new house I plan to have lots of fires!

  2. Oooo, I like those footprints on the marsh a lot. Remember, you don't have to catch up. You just need to jump in.

  3. keep it up--you'll make it. I love the bird shot and the twig shot too--as well as the pawprints in the snow. Blogger has messed with a lot of my pictures too.

  4. i like the poinsettia! and the twig. :)

  5. I like them all but the cosy fire looks inviting! I'd like to sit in front of that. I like the little bird on the Christmas tree and the twig is very dramatic against that background.

  6. I checked the original of the fireplace. Weird.

    When you said "clean old family photos" did you mean that literally or were you referring to digital restoration?

  7. I like the poinsettia--the red is so wonderful--and the Christmas bird against the gray wall. The gold of the bird and the green tree needles really pop.
