Project 365: Week #1

January 4, 2014

This is the first week of our first ever Project 365. Love photography, love taking photographs but can I capture something every single day for a year?

Only one way to find out. Welcome to Project 365 week #1

Day 1 

The last day together before POD went back to nursery. We coloured, we painted and we made dinosaurs. Mr Grasshead also made an appearance. He looks hilarious but I’m sure it won’t be long before his grassy mop needs cutting!

Day 2

Typically with it being POD’s first day back at nursery, there was no rain and the sun shone brightly. I went for an amble in the garden and found these.

Day 3 

One of our fences is leaning at 45 degrees and flapping like a bird. But on top of it is this beauty covered in raindrops.

Day 4 

POD wanted to dress up the minute she woke up. So she did.

That’s it for this short week. If you’d like to see other Project 365 entries, click on the badge below.

    Mr Grass head. Must remember to make one of these

    • Reply Charly Dove January 4, 2014 at 11:05 pm

      He looks like he’ll be lots of fun – once the grass comes!

    Such beautiful photos as ever! I’m really going to have to raise my game. As a fellow 365 newbie, I was a little disappointed in my own first week!

    I adore that photo of the berries encased in dewdrops, but Pod’s tutu and tiny toes are wonderful.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365, I’m so chuffed you’ve joined in.

    • Reply Charly Dove January 4, 2014 at 11:15 pm

      Thank you. There’s lots of love for Mr Grasshead! Our toddler thinks he’s great although he needs to hurry up and grow some hair 🙂

    • Reply Charly Dove January 6, 2014 at 9:43 am

      Thank you very much Jenny, really kind of you. We had the most amazing snails in the garden, coloured like humbugs. I hope there are still some more somewhere, they were beautiful 🙂

    ooohhh dear on the fence, ours is down as well, but thankfully the side that belongs to next door.
    Look forward to updates on Mr Grasshead. As you say typical that it stops raining, but then at least you didnt get drenched going to nursery

    • Reply Charly Dove January 6, 2014 at 9:49 am

      The fence is our side unfortunately – we’re leaving it until the weather calms! Mr Grasshead has finally seen some growth albeit only a little 🙂
