365: Week Two

Welcome back for week number 2!

It's been the most exciting week of the last seven days of my life!

Day 8

January 8: The only sun I see, as a free man in January, is on the drive home from work. But even the pretty sunsets are not worth stopping (well, and I was on the freeway) so I just rolled down the window and shot. 

Day 9

January 9: This is the view from my office. Actually, it's just how I see things -- I'm actually shooting through the railing of the porch outside of my office. I love my job. That's obvious, right?

Day 10

January 10: There are people who can take good pictures of the moon. I'm not one of them. Yet.

Day 11

January 11: 11:59 pm. This is the picture that almost stopped this project in it's tracks. See, we got this really cool game for the Wii, this Christmas. And I was doing really well. REALLY WELL!

Day 12

January 12: The end of our weeklong devotion to the study of evaporation. It turns out that water left in direct sunlight (blue) evaporates faster than water left in the shade (red). Who'd a thunk it?

Day 13

January 13: Like I said -- the only sun I see is on the way home. Tuesday it was following me like a devoted fan. I thought maybe if I took it's picture, it would get out of my mirrors, so that I could see to drive. It didn't. Maybe I should stop taking pictures while I'm driving.

Day 14

January 14: The big winner! Jordan won the Reflections competition at school, in the photography category, and tonight was the "Awards Banquet" -- and the bestowal of medals. She now moves onto the next division. I am very proud of her, she's already surpassing her dad. If you'd like to see her award winning picture, go here (it's the landscape shot). It also won second place in the county fair. Her father couldn't do any better than third this year. 

See you next week?

Great shots! As I mentioned last week I wanted to jump on board this week, though late, and wouldn't you know that on day 2 my everyday lens jammed. Not sure what happened but it is definitely in need of repair.
Anyway, love the shot from the side view mirror. And your daughter is quite a talent.

I truly wish I had a flair for photography. Your shots are awesome and way to go to your daughter!

Wow! Fantastic shots!! I love them and you did a pretty great job of taking those pictures while driving lol.

Great shots and congratulations to Jordan for moving on in the Reflections competition. Her shot is absolutely beautiful.

I gave my 10 year old an old Nikon digital camera to snap pictures on her last day of a week long field trip. I was expecting to have to delete a ton of bad pictures. I was surprised at how well she did. :)

Huh? Weekly posts? What did I miss? Dang, this wallowing in self pity stuff really absorbs too much of my time.

Congrats Jordan and great shots. I didn't know we weren't supposed to take pictures while driving...
