What better way to jump back into the internets that with some photography projects! I started, then stalled out in the midst of, a 10 on 10 last year. Starting the year off with the monthly post. On the 10th of each month, a group of photographers will post 10 images on the 10th of the month, then link to the next participant in the group.
This month I chose a random school day. It was a dark, rainy day. There was no good light to be found. Not that it would have mattered – when uploading the files to this post, the color goes all wonky. They did not look this way when I imported them into LR or tweaked them in PS. Maybe that is why I quit blogging for a while – I got tired of fighting the fight with Windows Live Writer and the color cast with it threw into my images? Anyway – I just simply documented the day as I made my way through it, little reason, no rhyme, no consistency or coherency. Much like most of my days!
My day, Tuesday, January 8th:
The remnants of the boys’ breakfast:
Lunch waiting to be grabbed on the way out the door:
Our house, hiding in the rain and fog:
Wet, dreary days have been a rarity around South Texas lately:
Game day for the oldest, so a lunch delivery:
A quick bite for me:
This monster rioted when I went out to the pig barn:
The grey skies heading to Payne’s game:
Evidence of my complete lack of ability to take basketball shots:
The last couple of weeks of school have been grueling. It seemed like everyone else in the world has been out, and we have had basketball and baseball and swimming and graduations and float trips and I am tired.
Here is the obligatory first and last day of school photos. My usually uncooperative subjects were even more so this morning.
When they come home this afternoon, I will have a sophomore and a 7th grader. Wow!
The premise is simple for the monthly 10 on 10: on the 10th of the month: post 10 pictures from a particular day. As usual, I was not running ahead of schedule, and took random images through out the day this past Saturday, the middle of our long Easter weekend.
The evidence of a quick beach trip the day before:
Early morning check of the tomatoes:
Yes! Tomatoes on the vine!
Jon fixed crepes for breakfast:
A fresh set of plants for one of the front beds:
Jon worked on the driveway, filling some holes:
While I edited:
Catching an Aggie baseball game on ESPN:
Dinner and beverages:
Then we caught a Hooks baseball game:
I love the mundane, ordinary moments that make up our lives. These are the things that fill our days, the bits and pieces that make up our memories.
I am participating with a group of other photographers in this 10 on 10 project. Up next? Heather B. Allison Photography | Seattle Photographer – and keep going to see this month’s posts.
Today is the 10th, so it's time for the February 10-on-10. The 10-on-10 project has a simple objective: on the 10th of each month, I will post a set of 10 pictures from a particular day. This set is from the past Monday. At the bottom of the post is the link to the next participant.
My car needed some work, so this was my ride for the day:
I usually get ready for the day sitting on my bed:
Always some laundry to do:
Time to pull out the planters and start getting ready for the new crop:
Buster Posey had a trip to the groomer and looks naked now:
