Day 1: 16/06/2011

Day 1

I decided a while back that I wanted to start a 365 photography project Seeing others inspired me to take this step in photography, as i have been at university studying illustration the last three years but leaning more towards photography by the end of my degree and even doing my dissertation on documentary photography.
I wanted the starting day to be a day which meant something to me so I decided that today, the 16th June, which would have been my Mother's birthday who sadly passed away nearly 3 years ago, would be fitting. This project is in her memory and a gift to her.
The main photograph i have chosen today was taken in Central Park in New York city. At the moment I am on a 5 week holiday staying with my Aunty Parvaneh and Uncle Richard. I came here with my partner David and our daughter Rosina. The photography is of a small motor powered boat which people of all ages were sailing around a pond in the middle of the park. It is a peaceful photograph full of tranquility, hence the title. In the middle of the big city there is peace found by all in this wonderful park.
The two photographs below show the bulk of what I did today which was a photo-shoot, which I did for my Uncle Richard, photographing
the filming of a video being made for the Kickstarter website for his product Tricky notebooks. It was a long day but good experience
documenting a film being made.

I have realized that i blogged my first day as the main post, so now day one of my project will always be at the top of the blog and the rest will go in order from newest post to oldest, just so you don't get confused!

Day 366: Time is up

Today would be my Mum's birthday I started my blog a year ago in celebration of her life and to honour what would be her 60th birthday today. I have done what I set out to do and I am so pleased. So to my beautiful Mummy whom I'm sure will know I have done this for her from where ever she is now I love you so much and you have inspired me to do this which has helped my photography skills in many ways.
Todays picture is of her clock which she loved and to show time is up on my blog. Now for a well deserved cup of earl grey tea on her birthday to honour her and her beautiful sister Diane as well.

Day 365: Chocolate twist

Today would be the last day of my blog but as its a leap year one more to go :) this morning was lovely although I was very tired as I only got in at 1.30 after leaving the house at 8.30 the morning before but the day was worth it yesterday :). Ro and I went to meet Antonia we had a well needed breakfast out at a different cafe (we want to try all Worcester cafes) then we went shopping I had to get a new filter an she also cleaned me lens for free and got rid of all left over glass which was nice. Then Ro and I found a lovely present for David's fathers day present :). This afternoon we watched tou story and I did a bit of tidying, David got home and made us a lovely dinner before he watched the boring football and I put Ro to bed. Had an awful stomach ach for last few hours now though :( early night for me.

Day 364: Broken lens cap

Today has been a very busy day as it was my first time being an assistant photographer at a wedding! I work with Jack and Tina helped me with everything that needed to be done which was brilliant. It was an amazing day photographing the bridal party getting ready to the church to the reception. The rain even held out for most the day which meant jack got most the outside photos done with ease. The couple were lovely and I had a great time photographing all day with Jack's camera. After the wedding we all went back to Jack and Tina's house to look through the photos and I got treated to martini's and Chinese :)
Today's picture isn't from the wedding as I was using jacks camera and wasn't sure it was right to upload the couple photos, so it is of the bad news I found out when opening my camera invade I needed it to find when Ro had grabbed it off me she has broken the filter!

Day 363: Ro and Clare

Had a lovely morning with Ro today we went to play group and it was lovely weather so they all got to play outside Ro was off with all her friends so I got chatting to some lovely mothers. After story time of the whale with a snail on his tail we made a whale for Daddy as Ro kept saying. After Play group we came back for lunch and Ro fell asleep on the sofa so I moved her on her pram so she could go to Clare's house. This afternoon I did lots of work on my dissertation and feel quite good about it all :) when I got Ro she was being very happy and cheeky and we came home for a lovely evening together.
Today's picture is of Ro and Clare although Ro was being a very cheeky monkey and wouldn't be still :)
