365 Photo Challenge

I tried to start the 365 photo challenge last January when 2011 started, but after just a few days I stopped. I still hadn't bought my DSLR camera yet and my old camera was becomming increasingly frusterating. But I've been inspired by finding all these awesome new blogs to follow and I'm starting the 365 Challenge again! This time I will finish!

So today was day One:
 I set up blueberrys on our back porch for today's picture.

And since this is a new blog I thought I share a "few" {well actually make that a lot} of my summer favorites:
My purity ring in a tulip.

Left: flower, sunrise Right: my beautiful cousin who was pregnant with twins. (Please pray for her, shortly after this week she lost the first baby and just a couple days ago she the lost the second twin. She has already had two other miscarriages in the past year before these two. She and her husband are really hurting right now. {they do have 3 other beautiful children but the lose of 4 babies in one year as been really hard.} )

The awesome campfire my dad builds in our backyard.
This was so cool, there was a drop of water hanging off every tip of each leaf on the whole plant!

More flowers from CT.

So there you go. A rather long, lengthy recap of my summer so far. :)
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed the photos!

  2. Awesome pictures! Your really good at getting a good angle for your photos, especially the flower shots. :)

    I'm sorry about your cousin's loss. I'll keep her in my prayers. :(

  3. Amazing pictures! You would never guess by looking at them that your camera is anything but perfect, let alone frustrating! :)

  4. Thank you Nela and Jessica. Nela: thanks for praying. Jessica: I meant to clarify in my post, my old camera was the frustrating one which is why I gave up the 365 challenge, I bought my current camera in March and I love it!

  5. Your pictures are awesome and inspiring.

    P.S. I'm your newest follower.

  6. Wonderful photos, I love too many to mention them all but my favourite is the 3rd with the seashore, beautiful colours.
