Day 7 / July 7, 2011

What I've learned so far about my month long photo-a-day project:
  1. I love taking macro photos! I adore focusing in on small textures, colors, and other details that are usually unnoticed.
  2. Taking photos during daylight is much, much easier than trying to capture something after the sun has set. (And less stressful, too, when there are only a few hours left before midnight!)
  3. My interest in a project starts to ebb on the sixth day.
  4. Bokeh - out of focus spots of light - are simply magical.
  5. Sometimes a photo that looks crisp on the camera screen is in fact blurry - see day 2.
  6. To make sure that #5 doesn't happen, take many photos so that there is wide choice and the best version can be uploaded at the end of the day.
And a small confession: the last two photos were taken on the same day!

If you are interested in starting your own thirty day project, photo or otherwise, check out this inspiring video from Ted Talks:

My most favorite photos this week are the fiery bokeh (Day 1) and bubbles (Day 3); my least is the blurry Day 2. What about you?

I especially love Day 2. :) I really like listening to different Ted Talks so I will definitely give this one a listen when I have a chance. Thanks for sharing all of your beautiful pictures.

I love day 2, but then I have a thing for flower shots. I simply love them. I would like to make them my life's obsession.

Opps, I meant day 6, the one with the flower :)

Have a great weekend!
