A Photo A Day | On Track

Daily instagram | Family

I feel so proud of my self for taking a photo a day with my phone + instagram everyday since January 1st. I’m not on track uploading to the CaptureYour365 gallery (off course, something have to give in my busy life – but I hope to finally get it there!), but I still have photos chosen – and that is more than what I have from some of the months last year (ops!).

I have a app that helps me see them all at once and here are the screen shots from the last months.

Week In The Life | Day 1 | #24

1. August 2011 - Favorite color: ORANGE

..
After spending a couple hours fixing errors by Aperture’s last sync with Flickr, Aperture have lost their permission to my Flickr!  I can’t have it changing the photos URL every other day; it makes using them on my blog almost impossible. And using the photos on my blog is kind of what I upload them to flickr for (at least the web versions). So frustrating; off to explore some options.

If you have suggestions please let me know :)

365 Photo Project – week 6/52

O.k. I admit it. I’ve been trying out a few different approaches on the 365-project side of things, and I haven’t been absolutely perfect in any of them. But I’ve still had some fun and learned a whole lot about me, photographing and blogging. So I’m not afraid to try it ONE MORE time ;) This time I’m using my handy with-me-to-almost-all-places-camera; my cell phone. It doesn’t take super good photos,  but this is about preserving memories from each day and not about capturing images for wall hanging…. or so I tell myself ;) I’m using the ShakeIt app for iPhone to turn my photos into Polaroid (mostly because it’s fun to shake the phone and for the most amazing sound it makes… hehe). To make the photos more alike (kind off), I’m planning to use this approach for the next year. I might change my mind later, but I can live with that. I’m kind of used to being me by now and I love to change it all up from time to time. So I’m not making any promises…

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the sixth week of the project – with photos and a few words:

Lama

~~~ 36/365 ~~~

On our way back from the football (soccer) matches this week. We drove by this farm with lots of Lamas. I think they are the coolest animal, and I’m so glad to finally just stop and take a little photo. (June 1th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Canoe

~~~ 37/365 ~~~

I wish I was out there on the tiny lake in the canoe. It’s so much fun, and it’s been far too long since last time!! (June 2nd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lilac

~~~ 38/365 ~~~

I brush by this bushes everyday on my way to and from the office. The smell makes me stop and smell it once more. Love it. And the blue sky makes me happy too. Bright shiny early summer day. (June 3rd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cool Skies

~~~ 39/365 ~~~

Today I learned something new that makes me really happy!
MT went to visit some friends from school. When I went to get him home I was invited on cake. So nice. We stayed into the late evening, enjoying the company. Nice to get to know new friends. When we finally were able to pack our selfs out of there we saw this fantastics clouds in the sky. Loving how the sun gives it gloving stripes. (June 4th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bare Feet

~~~ 40/365 ~~~

For a while there I got to be bare feet in the grass. Loving the summer feeling. Have really been enjoying the warm summer weather as of lately.

Had my first wedding in the stave church. (June 5th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me

~~~ 41/365 ~~~

Me in the mirror. That’s a thing I like to do from time to time.

I had two services this day. One in the stave church – and then one in the afternoon at our local church. It pretty much took all day, but I got time to play a little with MT and ate some delicious dinner ;) (June 6th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mogeno

~~~ 42/365 ~~~

In the early afternoon MT ran over to our neighboors to see if anyone wanted to jump in the trampoline with him. He soon came back and told me that he had no time for jumping, he had to watch a show at our school with E. Mogeno. I had completely forgotten all about it, and even though I mostly felt like staying home the rest of the evening, I knew he’d love the show. So we did. And he loved it. Mores surprisingly; so did I. (June 7th-2010)

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the third week of the project – with photos and a few words:

out biking

~~~ 15/365 ~~~

He got to take his bike to school in the evening. A few parents gathered to help clean up the place after fall and winter. We call it dugnad. And there is usually some cake ;) (May 11th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Late night gaming

~~~ 16/365 ~~~

It was late before MT could play his online games. We had to clean and tidy up our house before our guests arrived. They came a quarter past midnight. MT greeted them by the door – so happy to see them. Then he went to sleep – seriously tired. (May 12th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Playing Catch the Ball

~~~ 17/365 ~~~

Enjoying company and the new football :D
We [finally] celebrated MT’s birthday with family and friends. (May 13th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stair case

~~~ 18/365 ~~~

A beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Relaxed and laid back after some really busy days. I even had time to play some outdoor sports with MT in the afternoon. Sweet! (May 14th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Double faced...

~~~ 19/365 ~~~

MT got bored today so we played a few card games in the afternoon. Too bad mummy won 3 of 4 of them. ;) (May 15th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Down memory line

~~~ 20/365 ~~~

We drove by my Grandparents old house today. I wanted to show MT where his great grandma lived when I was a kid. I have so many good memories from this place. It used to be ocher yellow and the garage is new. (The current house owners were looking at me standing by their driveway, so I only took a snapshot before we moved on.) Glad to have captured some memories anyway ;) (May 16th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Celebrating

~~~ 21/365 ~~~

Celebrating our national day. Great fun (no matter how grumpy he looks in the photo..)! MT loved being there with his class mates, after the procession there were games to play and ice cream to eat. (May 17th-2010)

Sunflowers Growing Here

~~~ 8/365 ~~~

A while ago MT planted a few sunflower seeds. Finally we got them into proper pots. It’s still a while before we can plant them out. Wonder if they’ll survive… (May 4th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Splash

~~~ 9/365 ~~~

We had some time walking home from soccer practice. We went down to the lake. And MT got to throw a few stones in to the water – and I got to snap a few pictures. Loving the afternoon light. (May 5th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Youths, MT and a stave church

~~~ 10/365 ~~~

I only took one photo today. Or, honestly, I took a bunch but with my big camera… MT got to hang out with the youths tonight, he love to do that and the youths are so kind to him and lets him join them when playing games. Nice! (May 6th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

one hand

~~~ 11/365 ~~~

He was so proud of himself for only using one hand while riding his bike. I was more interesting in the sun rays and how his hand and they [almost] met…. (May 7th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old Blue

~~~ 12/365 ~~~

I went by to help my dad some more at the farm. This time I got the honor of driving our old blue ford. It has no windshield, so it was windy – but not as dusty as I thought it would be. While I was working the field I listened to a couple of podcast from my favorite scrapbook show: the paperclipping roundtable. Got to love multitasking work and hobby…. (May 8th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Detail; Ethiopian Folk Suit

~~~ 13/365 ~~~

We celebrated my nepiew’s Confirmation today. A beautiful day together with family. MT was proud to put on his new Ethiopian Folk Suit and told me: Now I feel like a real African. (May 9th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Truck Driving

~~~ 14/365 ~~~

We went to the farm to help with the farming again. MT was happy to bring the class teddy Oskar along. They even got to sit in his uncle’s truck. So much fun :D (May 10th-2010)

Thinking MT

~~~ 1/365 ~~~

It was MT’s own idea to stand like this. I love the colors and the feel of it. I took a few photos this day, but this is my Favorite with a big F. I had fun exploring our home and garden with the new apps for iPhone, trying out a few different versions – but settling on ShakeIt app for the 365-project. We had some warm comfy sunny weather this day. (April 27th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rain Drops

~~~ 2/365 ~~~

This was a cold and wet day, so different from yesterday! On the way back home I captured the rain on my windshield. (April 28th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Red Boat

~~~ 3/365 ~~~

Another warm and beautiful day. Crazy how the weather changes from a day to another. I went to a meeting with the other pastors in our area. On my way back home I just had to stop by this mountain lake and snap a few images. Wish I had my big camera with me, though, this could make for a good big photo on the wall…. When I returned I met two Confirmant groups in two different churches and had rehearsals for the coming Confirmation services. It still amazes me how different the youths reacts to church and faith. I’m both intrigued and worried about it, but mostly it makes me want to learn more about what they believe in and share my belief with them even more. (April 29th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Big Grin 3

~~~ 4/365 ~~~

I love this guy. And his BIG smile. I love him when he’s not smiling too. (April 30th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Driving Tractor with a Big Smile

~~~ 5/365 ~~~

He was so proud. And loved sitting with Grandpa in the tractor. Looking forward to see him learn what farming is all about, watching Grandpa work is a good beginning as well is getting into the action… MT was at the farm from Saturday to Sunday so I could fully concentrate on the big Confirmation services ahead. (May 1st-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Flag 1

~~~ 6/365 ~~~

Yay. I got the flag up. All by my self. A little proud of that. A beautiful day, both people-wise and weather-wise. In the evening we visited some friends of my parents for coffee. Nice that as well :D (May 2nd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

View from a Tractor

~~~ 7/365 ~~~

I’m so glad I finally got to help my dad at the farm, if only a little. Driving the tractor up and down harrowing the field. I wish I could help him more. MT found courage in himself to go down and get to know one of my parents neighboring kids – and had a lots of fun playing soccer and jumping on their trampoline. A good day :) (May 3rd-2010)
