I am so honored to be a guest blogger here at Project 64. I blog at Random Reflections. It has been primarily a paper crafting blog until my fascination with photography began once I purchased a DSLR. I’ve been married to my best friend for just about 38 years, and have two adult children—one half way across the country and the other all the way across! It means some great travel, but a pretty quiet house!
I have a habit of starting a photography project and giving up on it about half way through the year. (There have been at least three attempts at Project 365.) But Project 64 has been so much fun. I see things I wouldn’t have looked at twice if I weren’t carrying around my little crayon samples. I’m sure the folks at the grocery store and the mall wonder what I am doing. My husband gets into the search every week as well, so it’s turned out to be a bit like a scavenger hunt. A special thanks to Brooke and everyone else here for a wonderful project! I know it takes a lot of work to maintain a challenge like this.
Last month when I was about to go on a three week trip, I commented on my blog that I wasn’t sure quite how to find the right color when it was announced here. Someone kindly suggested I make a sample of all the colors, so I did, and this week I carried two with me on our walks through the park.
When Brooke emailed the color of the week to me I thought it would be really easy. I love olive green, but none of the things I own match my olive green sample. My husband and I have been walking through the park each morning, but most spring greens are not this olive green either. But I did see this lovely bud (not sure what kind of bush it is).
I’m also in the midst of editing our photos from our trip and found two great examples from Arizona. We saw this fabulous parrot at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
And, what else? A cactus, of course.
