Project 365 Week 16: Spring Has Sprung
For Week 16 of Project 365, I vowed to take most (if not all) of the photos outside. And by giving myself the theme "Spring Has Sprung", I was pretty much forced to do so! It has been a long and cold winter (certainly colder than last year's faux-winter), and while I was happy to have a real winter with a decent amount of snowfall, I was definitely relieved to see Spring finally arrive. (Unfortunately, I suffer from severe spring allergies, so my body was not too thrilled about this...) So, without further ado, here are the photos!
Sunday's photo is a bit of a cheat, because I took it with my iPhone I know...I slacked off again! :( Still, it's a photo, and it's a Spring photo at that, so it counts! In case you're wondering why I unicycle counts as a Spring photo, my answer to you is that you don't see anyone riding unicycles around the city in the wintertime! This unicycle, by the way, was spotted at the climbing gym that we go to. It was just lying around by the bleachers, so I just *had* to take a photo. Good thing I did, because its owner (a boy in his teens) retrieved it just minutes later to go home.
Monday's photo was taken in my front yard. The lovely thing about my front yard is that it's full of pretty plants, none of which I take care of. That's the beauty of living in a townhouse condo and playing condo fees up the wazoo. There was some fresh rain on the leaves, so of course I took a picture. I really like these types of photos. That and snails. We have a TON of snails that come out to play after a rainfall. I was going to post a snail pic, but I have so many that I thought that this would be more fun. It's a wonder I even made it out that day, considering that I was busy the entire day doing taxes. Very last-minute, I know. Also very unusual for me. I don't tend to slack off like this for taxes.
Tuesday's pic. It's spring, after all, so it was only fitting to take a photo of the new growth in the garden!
Wednesday's pic marked the first BBQ of the year for us! Many folks around here will BBQ in the winter, but we prefer doing our BBQ in warmer, sunnier climates. You can see that my hubby is hard at work flipping burgers. This was after he stuck his tongue out at me, trying to ruin my photos.
Thursday's photo couldn't embody my daughter more. I mean, really. Dressed in a frilly Gap Kids dress with matchin butterfly wings, magic wand, and headband. All her doing. This tomboy takes no credit for her girlie-girl daughter. I happened to catch her as she was giggling after our neighbor picked a daffodil and whatever that other plant is from the garden. Made my daughter's day.
I had originally wanted to take a photo of my daughter riding her glider bike for Friday's photo. I actually have a few photos of that, but I thought it was way cooler to show a photo of her jumping between benches. The mother in me was saying, "Stop that! You're going to hurt yourself!" The photographer in me was saying, "Do it again!"
Saturday's photo was taken during a gap in my schedule in the May the Fourth Be with Yoü mini-sessions, which took place on Saturday, May 4th. I brought a bunch of my daughter's Star Wars gear to the park, in the hopes that maybe a client or two would want photos with a light sabre or the big Yoda backpack. Although nobody took me up on it, my daughter had a blast dressing up as Obi-Wan and Darth Vader, and having light sabre fights in the park with the little boys. Awesome day.
Whew! i'm almost caught up on my 365 posts! Yay! Week 17's theme is "Ordinary". The point of the theme is to try to capture ordinary quirky aspects of life. To see what I did on previous weeks, check out the weekly roundups here!
