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 350: Callum and I

Ro loved waking up to the baby again today she sat on the sofa with him in her lap :) sadly there wasn't much time for cuddles as Ro had to go to childminder. I spent the morning with Callum and Sam and Dave even had a nice cuddle with him :). We went to town to get Ella birthday present and Callum and Sam got Ro a gift to say thank you for using her cot. This afternoon sadly they left and I did my work till getting Rosina at 6. When we got home she was sad that Daddy was at work and baby was gone but loved her board book presents. After dinner her Toy story book made her want to watch it so we sat in bed and watched Toy story 2 before she fell asleep.
Today's picture is of Callum and I taken by Sam but edited by me :)

Day 349: Pretty pink flowers

Had a nice day today we all got ready and went to toddlers this morning both Callum and Ro had a great time and Callum had a lot of admirers. Afterwards we went to get lunch and I had to keep Ro awake so that she could eat it before Clare's. Sadly Ro had to go to childminders, and I went to get my package from the postal place. When I got back I did the washing up and spent time with Sam and Callim
Before they went to see Rachel. When David got home I started my work and then we got ready and picked up Ro getting her sorted as Matt came to look after her as we were going to a meeting. Leanne got stuck in traffic and sadly we left before she got there. The meeting was interesting but we have a lot to talk about before we decide, hopefully things we will work out :) when we got home Sam and Callum were back and Ro had been a very good girl for Matt and Leanne whom they love. Now dinner time so hungry.

Day 345: Roxana and Ro

Had a nice day with my lady today although we got up at a silly time and we had no crumpets in which she was not pleased about so at 7.30 we went to get some. We didn't do much this morning other then spend time with David before he went to work, this 10 days straight of work is awful luckily 4 days off after so we get to go home:) This afternoon we went to town which was packed and after lunch we got ready to go to a BBQ for Roxana birthday :) Ro enjoined the attention and was interesting but kept a safe distant from the BBQ. We had a lovely time seeing Roxana again and meeting her friends, she is moving to London soon so have to keep in contact :). We left and by the time we got home it was half seven and Ro had slept most the walk so when we got in she woke and has only just gone down.

Day 344: Pimms O'clock

Had a lovely day today, meet up with Naomi and a women called Clare to talk about a job this morning at the chocolate deli Ro had to come with and even though she added a lot of milk to my tea she was a very good girl. Afterwards we came home for lunch and Ro had a very short nap before we headed off for a well needed swim, spending over an hour and a half in the pool playing and practising swimming Ro was finally tired. On the way home Ro saw greggs and do I got her a sausage roll and we went to the river to eat it and I also got her an ice cream and we fed the ducks. Then Ro got into another swimming nappy and plate din the fountains with all the other children :). When we got home Ro got in my bed and asked to watch Toy Story 3 in so we did.

Day 343: Waiting for the torch

Ro had childminder today, which David took her to when he got back we finished watching our film from last night. Then sadly David had to go to work, I spent the day starting some initial research for my dissertation and applying for another job. When I went to get Ro town was packed with people waiting to see the torch, it was really warm and once I'd gotten Ro we wondered through the crowd and Ro got a free balloon which she then let go of which made her very sad. We decided to go home as it was still ages till the torch was going to pass and Ro was hungry. After dinner at 7 we heard the town cheer turning on the tv we saw the torch was just round the corner so we popped outside and saw it go past which wears funny considering people had been waiting over an hour to see it.
Today's picture is of he crowd waiting sadly I didn't have time to photography the torch itself as we only just made it to see.

We got the bus in and when we got there walked all around the centre even drinking some fresh Malvern spring water from a tap. After looking round the town we got our lunch from the lovely Waitrose and went to priory park to have a iconic. Ro really enjoined herself and when we finished eating she went in the play park. We were going to head to do pottery but by the time we got there Ro had fallen asleep so we got a milkshake and came home. Spent the evening as a family and I made Spag bol for dinner.
