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.

What a lovely day it was today, the weather felt like it was the middle of the summer not nearly October, although I did hear some ladies talking to an icecream man about the fact it was meant to be snowing in three weeks time, which is crazy considering the temperture drop that would have to happen, I don't think my body will like that. Crazy British weather for you!
Rosina and I took advantage of the weather and went for a nice long walk to a lovely park, taking a picnic with us. I was very proud of Rosina as she walked alot of the way herself holding onto my bag strap on the pram as she went, and even didn't moan when I picked her up to go over a bridge. We had a lovely day together it was just a shame David was working so couldn't enjoy the weather with us.
Late last night before we went to bed a ladybird flew into our loung, so it was still today early hours of this morning, we caught it and it just sat on a piece of paper not moving so I took advantage of photographing it, which I found alot harder to get a decent shot then I thought. I need to look into bug photography I feel lol

Took in Heidi's suggestion of textures today, and used the paveing of my balcony with a feather on top that I found outside too, I thought the two textures worked together to make an interesting photograph.

I decided it was about time to have a photograph of myself on her, so I did some self photographing which I found difficult as I seem to be very judgemental about myself !

Today for me was busy, Daivd had another day off work which was lovely, so it meant we enjoied a nice breakfast together and i got a bit of a lay in before hand. Sadly David and Rosina were a bit poorly so I was looking after them providing lots of obus oil to make them able to breath :) We decided to tidy our cloths up together which took alot of effort and we have barley any space for them all, I think this is a sign but I am ignoring it lol. Daivd took Rosina to the doctors this afternoon to make sure the cold hadn't got on her chest, so it gave me a good time to do my daily zumba fitness which i must admit I hadn't been doing as regularly as I would have liked to the last week.
This evening after dinner we decided to let off the lantern Scott got Rosina for her birthday, it was more difficult then it looked to set off and we thought it was going to hit the other buildings or worse just fall straight down onto the street once we let it off but luckily it managed to stay up and Rosina loved it, thank you Uncle scott! So my pictures are of David letting it off, and of the lantern flying away into the sky, we told Rosina to make a wish and pointed at a star saying that was were it had gone hehe.

My poor baby has a cold, which is very sad as during nap time there was little snores, but she was still happy enough :) we had a film morning watching toy story 3, afterwards we had a nice lunch and went for a walk down the canal and up the river, it is nice to go out and when the winter gets colder we won't be able to do it as often :( I spent the afternoon giving the house a tidy as normal (it never seems to stay tidy!) Rosina was being crazy and running round the loung screaming and laughing, and climbing on the chairs, its very easy to get distracted and play with her as it makes her giggle which is the best sound in the owrld. David got off work an hour early which meant we got to eat with him and then we watching million pound drop live and played alone online :)
Today's picture makes me smile, Rosina kept picking up my ugg boots and trying to put them on so Daivd out her in them and she seemed quite happy but abit confused as why she couldn't walk lol.

University was good we had an induction lecture to introduce us to the new lecturers and the course outlines, it was good and alot of people from my old course are also doing the masters so it was nice to catch up and know i'll be doing it with people I know. I picked Rosina up from the childminded and she had a great time, didn't cry once and was very happy but sleepy when I picked her up. We spent the afternoon playing untill David came home where we watched the quiz show pointless together, and played some silly games :)
Today's phtograph is of Rosina she seems to get older and most beautiful eveyrday.

Woke up this morning and everyone had left for work, but Rosina had let me have a nice long sleep so I felt very awake. Spent the morning doing a bit of tidying and playing with Rosina, then this afternoon Antonia came round for lunch and a catch. Then to our great surprise Sam decided to come for a visit which made us oh so happy :) We had a nice time playing with Rosina and talking, had a dance on the balcony in the rain where Rosina got soaked so when David got home they had a nice bath together. This evening Sam and I went to see the change up at the cinema which was very funny :)
Today's picture I took while I was out in town, it was in a plant pot and they were all slowly dying I feel the end of the summe ris here.

Today's picture is of ballons in bushwackers, Rosina loves balloons and the lady putting them up (which I assume is in preparation of freshers week) gave her one which made her very happy, as it was purple to match her cloths.

New shoes, new shoes is what David used to keep pointing out everytime he got a new pair and refused to walk on the grass of get them scuffed in anyway, it was very cute. The reason for my saying this is in honour of today's pictue which is of Rosina first pair of new shoes (walkers anyway) her originals were cruising ones which had soft soles.
