The Road Less Traveled & A Broken Toe.........

©2012 Dianne Poinski

I mentioned in my last post that I am busy getting ready for our annual open studio tour this week. Today I want to share a story (another one) about how my iPhone "Project 365" once again transformed an otherwise ordinary day into something special.

On Tuesday I had a few errands to run. These included a trip to my framers and then a little farther east to pick up the bags I use to package my unframed prints. Both of these places are freeway friendly, but  I still did not have my "photo of the day". Instead of getting back on the freeway for the second stop, I decided to take a few back roads instead.

You simply cannot be in a hurry or feel overwhelmed when you are driving on country roads looking for a  "Kodak moment". This little diversion dramatically shifted my mood and my attitude, and I know I have this project to thank.

While the driving slowed me down, because of my position in the road for both these shots, I did work pretty fast and it shows. They looked much better on the small screen of my phone, but I still like them enough to share.

In other news, (and another example of the universe forcing me to slow down), an unfortunate meeting of my toe and a door jamb occurred in the middle of the night and it appears I have broken my toe. (I will spare you that photo! It's pretty ugly!).

It is feeling much better right now so I hope by Saturday it will be just an annoyance, However, if you come to visit me on the tour this weekend and I don't jump up to greet you, you know why........


  1. Ouch, so sorry about your toe!

    On the other hand, love your photo.

  2. Thank you Katherine! Moving slowly, but hanging in there!

  3. Love your photos…I too am enjoying iphone project365. I am now 8 months in. Have you printed any of your completed months yet? Any tips on how to best print to fit in a 12×12 protective sleeve? Any tips you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

  4. Thanks for your comment Myra! I have made a few prints of some of my iPhone images and it's really just like printing any other photographs. If you print 8x8 with a 12x12 mat, that will work perfect for that size sleeve. Keep me posted!
