The Project Continues.................

Just finished up another month of my Project 365. While the goal is to take at least one photograph every day, most days the number hits double digits. My iPhone is with me everywhere and the photos I am sharing here were all taken with the iPhone camera, however, this project has definitely increased the amount of time my Nikon is also hanging around my neck.

In addition to sharing a few highlights from March in this post, I am also going to participate in Texture Tuesday this week as well.

The other day it became very breezy outside. I have seen my bedroom curtain fly in the wind before but don't believe I noticed how magical it looked. Of course I had to take a picture, or should I say "pictures". I probably have 25 shots of this curtain, each time thinking I had captured what I was feeling, only to have another gust come up and create one more stunning display of movement. I posted one version of this on Instagram and Facebook, but for Kim Klassen's  challenge this week I decided to take a different version and do all of the processing in Photoshop.

The theme this week was the word "soft". Not only do the curtains look soft and dreamy (or even spooky as some people have pointed out), but I used a soft filter and then added Kim's "Softly" texture.

Be sure to check out Kim's blog to see what other people did with that theme.

Here are a few highlights from March. These were all taken and processed with my phone.

I am a quarter of the way through the year and am feeling pretty confident I will complete this project. Who knows what I will find in April?

  11. I really love each of these images...the curtains blowing catch such a cozy, springy mood - perfect for the "soft" edition and I love the images in the puddles - one naturally "black and white" and then the brilliant color!

    Easter blessings to you!

  12. Diane,
    My favorite is the curtain photo. It has an other worldly feel to it. Very cool!
