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 168: Tuna Steak

 Rosina woke us up at 10.45, I could not believe it felt very good, although I did intend to be at university for 11 so it pushed me back somewhat. I bet tomorrow the one morning this week I don't have a read to get up before 10 we shall be up at silly o'clock. Today i was at university again pretty much all day, trying to do as much work as possible for one project. I need it over so I can work on the other panicing a bit now. I now have to try and do some work on ethics, the module I most worried about someone help me!

Day 167: My birthday

 Today is my 22nd Birthday :) It has been a very busy but nice day. Woke up to presents off David and Ro, chocolate a dress and a necklace with Rosina's thumb print on. I opened my other presents off my family the other day, head phones, iPhone case and dress of Roxy and Tom and Money to get my hair done, my mummy's ring stretched for me and Desperate housewives box set off my Daddy.
   Today i had university in the morning, then I came home to be taken out to be taken out to lunch at pizza express by David. We looked round town and I brought some dvd's from cex with money I got off my god mother :) This evening Leanne and Matt kindly came round to look after Rosina so David and I went to the oub played some pool, and then went to the cinema :)

Day 166: Costa

Today has simple been all working, I had to finish off some work this morning before showing it to my group this afternoon at uni, I did get to listen to Alvin and the chipmunks while working this morning though, and had lots of lovely yet sometimes horribly snotty kisses off Rosina. She seems better today, while I was at university she was a little grumpy but all in all on the mend the medicine must be working. It is my birthday tomorrow just so you know :)
Today's photograph i took at university while getting a tea, the nice ladies let me photograph them.

Day 165: Medicine

Had a good night last night, until some stupid drunk girl spilt her whole drink down me and in my shoe, and she was so drunk she didn't even notice what she had done. Got home early to a very poorly Rosina, and she was up allot of the night. Roxy and Tom had to leave early so we took Rosina to the doctors and she has to have antibiotics :( She has been on and off sleeping all day and very off her food :(. I've had to try and do work while having a very clingy baby who wanted lots of kisses. I got some birthday money yesterday off my godmother Mary so I brought Ro a few films to cheer her up. David and her sat and watch Despicable me and we have both Alvin and the chipmunks for tomorrow :)
   Today's picture is of David pouring her very bright coloured medicine.

Had a productive day, Mark and Katie came round and we did some work and sorted out exactly what needs doing for Monday.

Day 163: Shines in the darkness

Had a busy university day today, with a presentation this morning, and a debate this afternoon in ethics for pro-big brother, I feel we sold our case well! We got off uni a bit early which gave me a David a short while to get a few more of Rosina's presents, all I can say is she better loved toy story when she is older! Tried photographing stars this evening, not quite got the hang of it and need more practice, not sure where i'm going wrong.
   Today's picture I took in town on the big christmas tree, its like a star replacment for my failed attemps at the real stars

Day 161: Dead iphone

Today has been a sad day, my iphone had the worst fate and died a death with some tea getting way to close. I am most upset by the fact the apple people said I can not retreive my photographs and videos so mostly all the vidoes I have had of Rosina since my last birthday are gone cry :( Hopefully I will get a new phone soon though, so facebook or text me on David's phone. I also had university today, and have been doing work since Rosina has been in bed.

Day 147: Look at the Swans!

Rosina and I got up to a lot today, we went for walks and tried to get Barry a small travel cage so we can bring him home but couldn't find one, hopefully will tomorrow. Then after our busy day together we went for a swim, and Rosina really did swim we were in the pool for nearly an hour and everybody was talking to us about how confident she was in the water and how well she was doing. One boy even made a joke she was better then him, as he had to ask his mate for tips on swimming lol. Rosina was exhausted afterwards though and feel asleep on the way home.
   Today's picture we took on our walk we manage to get close enough to see the swans today and even they were going crazy for bread.

Day 146: Old fashioned style photograph

Rosina and I decided to walk David to the bu stop today as we had a few things to do before university. First had to take her cloths back as they left the tags on again.... then we went to feed the birds, it was crazy we couldn't even get near the river because they were flying everywhere, throwing the bread felt as though they would attack any minute and the swans didn't even get a look in. It was a lovely morning other then the scary birds but I had to go to university, feel bit paniced about work as one of our deadlines is on the 7th December eek.
   Today's photograph is of the birds, I decided to practice with some photoshop work and made it look old fashioned.

Day 145: Lights on at 4pm

Had a nice day with Rosina today we went to music group this morning which we have not been to in a while, she was a little clingy but enjoied herself after a while, and played and coloured afterwards too. Then we went for lunch with three other Mum's and there baby's all around Rosina's age, it was very cute watching them all running around after each other. Spent the rest of the day having a nice walk and doing lots of work.
    Today's picture yet a bit boring, just shows how winter has really set in street lights on at 4!

Day 144: Dippy egg

Had an unexpected busy morning, which was a bit annoying as I intended to get lots of work done, but other things needed sorting.

Day 142: Tart

What a day, sliced my fingered open on a broken bowl, Ro bit my arm and left a horrible bruise lump all because I didn't look at her face when I was putting her down for a nap, and I dropped a massive slice of my home baked tart on the floor serving it. That sums up today really, other then that i did a big shop at morrisons with David :)
    Today's picture is of the chorizo sausage and red onion tart I made all by myself :) sorry about the smear on the open its oven cleaner which hasn't been wipped off properly and I didn't realise till we had cut into the tart

Day 141: Rain cover

As it was reading week I didn't have a lecture, but as I had a Ethics essay to do I went into university anyway to do work. It was quite distracting watching all the graduates go by while writing it, I would have much rather just looked out the window :). At half one Katie and I decided to go get some nachos for lunch, before heading to the dac to meet our team to do some work for our other module. David came and meet me at uni as he forgot his key so we walked home together and went and got our lovely baby.
   Today's picture is of Rosina in her rain covered pram very cute but she looks confused when she is trapped in there.

Day 140: At graduation

Had a lovely day at graduation, wearing the gowns in the cathedral made us all feel as though we were in harry potter, although now I'm not so sure I'd want to those things are bloody annoying lol. Was bit nervous walking up and round but couldn't stop smiling. Did the good old photos with the family which my Dad ordered, and got a photo outside my old halls. I even got brought a leavers t-shirt with everybody name on it, I did find mine hehe. Afterwards we all came back home and had a harvester take out for dinner. Rosina enjoied the excitement of the day and seeing her Papa.
   It was hard to pick a photograph today as I got allot of classic family in my hat picture but this was too good to pass on, I find it so cute and funny

Day 139: Stairs

I'm on reading week this week, but that didn't stop us meeting at university to do work in our new MA room, which is tiny and feels even more so with us all in it! Rosina was very cute when I picked her up from Clair's house she hugged my legs and got in  the pram herself.
    Today's picture is of some steps that are in town thought i'd experiment.

Day 138: Cuddles at milk time

Up at 6am fun times, Rosina didn't get the concept of the clocks changing. But alas makes my days longer I guess, got bored of being in so went to town to do a few bits and then walked up the river to meet Tama :) Had lunch and a good catch up, hopefully going to go to london soon to see her :) Spent the rest of the day playing with Ro and David it was very fun :)
