Day 21: Accessory
One of my daughter’s hair ties. I’m digging the short hair right now, so I don’t have any of these for myself at the moment.
Day 22: On My Plate
Crumbs. Crumbs are what are usually on my plate.
Day 23: In My Town
Flip Flops are worn nearly year round. It is warm enough in the winter to comfortably get away with this. Whether one can fashionably get away with this is debatable.
Day 24: Making
I am making cloth diapers. I plan on using both these and disposables when our little gentleman arrives later this year.
Day 25: Laugh
I tried taking a picture of me using this, but just was not happy with the result. It’s a mustache to go on a sucker, and I have to say, this is how I will be eating my suckers now. It’s just too fun. I made them for my daughter’s class. If they enjoy them half as much as I have, they will have been worth the two quarters and twenty minutes it took to make them.
Day 26: Salty
Because salt. After I tried sea salt, I put the table salt down. Where has this been all my life? There is a huge difference in flavor here.
Day 27: Broken
This is from my daughter’s Halloween costume. I bought it from the Dollar Tree. It was cute for a while, but after she banged it against everything trying to turn whatever into a real kitten or flying unicorn, it didn’t stand the test of time. At some point I’ll have to get out the hot glue gun, but right now it’s decorating the living room as a reminder of something else I need to do that only takes five minutes. Those five minute projects add up quickly.
Day 28: Something on me
I wore a hat this afternoon. After I saw my hair in the middle of the day, I thought it was a great idea. I let the baby model it for the photo shoot.
Day 29: Together
Salt and pepper. The smell of this made me want to pour olive oil over it and dip fresh bread into it. Too bad I didn’t have any fresh bread. The lighting could have been better so the salt would be more visible. In a previous photo, I poured salt on my dark kitchen table and that showed up well. If I had used the table for this shot, the pepper would have blended in with the background. I currently could not think of anything else I wanted to pour spices on to experiment with this shot. Something neutral would have been nice.
Day 30: A Game
Graduating triangles. She’s only five, but she sneaks out to the back porch to draw with the sidewalk chalk. I had no idea she did this until I went to take a picture of the skateboard she drew, but I think it’s brilliant. I don’t know what she was trying to make, or if she was just experimenting with the shapes. She isn’t trying to make a statement or examine things differently. It is just a game.
Day 31: Icy
This is not my ice cream. I do not care for mint chocolate chip. I rarely will eat a Thin Mint. My caramel swirl was gone long ago.
The January Challenge was fun. Although I did make it to equal a photo a day, many days I did not get to touch my camera. I did learn more about angles and some of the settings to achieve a better looking photo.
