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 197: Lens baby

Today Rosina and I got a lift back to Worcester off of Trudy and Charles, I slept most the way as I was up late doing work last night. When we got back I treated myself to a cheeky mc donalds before Leanne came over, we catched up before I had the doctors, and then when I got back she looked after Rosina while I did some work. It was nice to see David again when he got home from worn, and now I am going to do work and watched rain man.

When I got home from university I did some tidying and cleaned out Barry.

Day 181: Sleeping baby

Had a great night out last night, although it went too fast, we spent most the day in the cheese room which started playing rock music and did lots of crazy dancing and singing along. Maia had to go today which was sad :( we had a nice morning together before she left, and it was just me and Rosina to spend the day together. David had gotten me a dress for christmas which I had to change as it was way too short, so I pciked another nice one :) We spent the rest of the day playing, but now she hasn't really spelt David is still trying to put the monster to bed.

Luckily the landlord is paying us back! We also got Ro some new boots which are very cute. We tried to go on the merry go round again but she still didn't want to although enjoied watching it, yet didn't enjoy the candy floss we brought her!
