I DID IT! The song from My Fair Lady is playing in my head (You Did It). I must admit there were times when I wanted to quit, but I forced myself to push through; and I’m glad that I did as I feel I accomplished a great feat. Yes, it is easy to take a photo/photos every day, but posting every day is a bit of a pain…I hate tagging and sometimes I just didn’t know what to say. Tonight I know what to say…

Happy New Year and Happy New Decade!! Thank you all so much for your follows and likes it is very much appreciated.

Almost there! Way too cold and windy outside to take any pictures today, so here is another one from yesterday while walking around Moorpark College. I shot through one of the windows of the Performing Arts building at a mural; the clouds and a tree are the reflections you see from behind me. I made sure to shoot over my head so that my reflection didn’t interfere with the artwork.

Did a nice 2.73 mile walk at Moorpark College today; saw lots of bees on flowers, a couple of hummingbirds (1 buzzed me as I was taking a picture of a bird of paradise flower), 3 rabbits, and 2 squirrels. I love walking around the campus when it is closed as I usually see rabbits, squirrels, hummingbirds and red tail hawks along with some other smaller birds – sparrows and black phoebe’s. Today’s photo is straight out of camera/phone.

Sometimes when I look at a photo I just know it will come out with a cool result when mirrored; that’s what happened with today’s photo.

Sometimes when I look at a photo I just know it will come out with a cool result when mirrored; that’s what happened with today’s photo. First I tried Mirror app and it crashed upon selecting the JPG from my Fuji XT-3. I then tried Mirrorly and it worked like a champ! This was the second “mirror” option, but it was facing to the left. In Snapseed I rotated the image so the it was facing upwards, then processed it; took less than a minute to complete.

Tiny Planet sure is fun to play with. I used “Rabbit Hole” to produce today’s “wave” from a blade of grass.

To continue from yesterday as to what to expect next year:

  • A name change – to more express what I do
  • More digital art – with and without 3D characters
  • Possibly opening a new online store with blank (inside) greeting cards

OMG!! The big countdown begins! I’m so excited to be in the final stretch of finally completing my first 365 project. Some of you have asked what I have planned for next year, all I can say now is that it will be a visual journey. While I have plans to use Card Diary for next years (mobile photography) 365 project, I wont be posting a photo a day. I plan on showing a weekly collage, or 1 post with a gallery of photos from the week. Tomorrow I’ll share a little more of what I have in mind.

‘Twas the day before Christmas…and changes are coming (more on that at a later date). I only have a few hours to get myself together. Just got a text from my sister, my youngest niece might have the stomach flu and my sister wasn’t feeling too good herself. Christmas get together postponed until New Years Day. Since I only had 2 hours of sleep last night, I’m heading back to bed!

I feel the stress finally releasing…the artwork for my niece’s Christmas cards were printed and now they are safely at the house, all I have to do is put them together. I will show the artwork either on Christmas day or on the 26th. Still quite a bit to be done, but the list is getting shorter.

Getting very excited now! I finished with both Christmas cards today and emailed them to the place I have them printed; should be able to pick them up tomorrow, then all that’s left is putting them together. Looking forward to getting back outside to take photos.
