Hi everyone, my name is Vicki and I am so excited and honored to be a guest this week at Project 64. You might know me better from my blog name: Side by Side aptly named as I have twin girls who are 8½ and growing up side by side. I first started this blog as an online record of their lives. I then used it for my digital scrap-booking layouts and projects and now I am primarily using it for my photos and a failed daily photo project this year.
I have used several cameras over the years and I am currently using a Canon Powershot SX10 which is an advanced point and shoot. I can do some manual on it. I almost always shoot that way these days and will probably outgrow it soon.
I have a goal of putting together a book of all the photos I take for this project. I want my photos to relate to our family while still being true to the color find and have pleasing artistic aesthetic too. I try not to just randomly take a photo but search to see if it is something my kids have experienced or something they like. We are all bird and animal lovers around here. It seems I find most of my photos outside. But as it gets warmer I have to get up pretty early to catch the light and avoid the heat.
Here is my find for this week:
I found this fun statue along the main street of our downtown. I thought the little frogs playing leap frog were the perfect color of Olive Green.
I really enjoy participating each week and am committed to making it until week 64. I am always amazed and delighted to see what each of you finds for the selected colors.
Am I the only one who has a box of 64 and is putting the crayons back into the box in the order we photographed them? I hope not. lol
