Project 365+1 :: Day 67 :: “Dyl-man”

Man, I love this baby!  🙂  he’s always so smiley and attentive when I’m trying to take pictures of him.  And he looks at me when I call his name!  He’s also a TON bigger than he was when he was born.  Time sure does fly by too quickly!


Project 365+1 :: Day 66 :: “RGB”

This has to be one of my favorite pictures that I’ve taken in my photography class.  Our assignment was to take beautiful pictures, and then, using Photoshop, turn it into a black & white photo.  You probably wouldn’t believe this, but this flower is a weed!  Here in Okinawa, weeds grow like super-weeds.  Overnight, our lawn could grow 3 inches just in weeds or flowers could bloom out of nothing!  I suppose that is just the tropical nature of this island.  Well, these flowers are my favorite little weedy flowers that I’ve seen!  They’re a really pretty purple, but in black and white, they’re even more spectacular!  🙂

I also created a new watermark 🙂  Do you like it?!

Project 365+1 :: Day 64 :: “Pen with Options”

Okay, so this inanimate object represents my mother 🙂  It’s a pen with 3 different colored inks and a pencil, but I shot it dead on because my mom is direct.  And CLEAN 🙂  The pen represents the fact that she always has what we need – in the house, in her purse.  Duh, she’s a mom! 🙂

Project 365+1 :: Day 63 :: “Sharpie & Solo Cup”

For my photography class we had to take pictures of inanimate objects that represent our family members.  This was one of my favorites that I took!  It represents my sister who I love dearly!  She is so sure of who she is and doesn’t change for anyone.  She also likes to have fun and enjoy life!  🙂  Obviously it’s a pretty shallow representation of her because my sister has a ton of other qualities that are a lot deeper, but I feel like it’s a privilege  to get to anyone’s heart, so none of that sharing with the world!

Project 365+1 :: Day 60 :: “Sunbathing”

Okay, so it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted ANYTHING!  My hubby was about to leave for a bit, and it was so nice to take a break and spend some time with him.  Then, the sadness/missing him syndrome kicked in, and I just didn’t want to be ON a computer.  I wanted to be curled up with a blanket, reading.  I still miss him like crazy, and it hasn’t even been a week!  I can’t wait til next week when I find my routine again 🙂 plus I have some non-365 photos to share with you all!

Alright, here’s Mr. Chaos, my bulldog.  He loves to sit like this, but mostly lay out, in the sun.  It’s a rare sunny, breezy day for Okinawa, so he was taking it in!  He also looks that way 85% of the time.

Project 365+1 :: Day 59 :: “Innocence”

I LOVE candid shots 🙂  This little angel is the sweetest little girl I’ve ever met!  🙂  I’ve also been blessed to watch her grow up from a newborn to a toddler!  I can’t believe how fast that first year goes, and I’m even MORE blessed that I get to learn from my friends about motherhood.  It will definitely be a ride, but I will learn to cherish every moment.  One day!  🙂

*Just a note :)

To all my bloggy friends,

Sorry for my hiatus this week, but I am trying to squeeze as much time in with my hubby before he leaves for a little bit.  Go figure, I also have a paper/photo project due at the same time.  Do not fret, I am still taking my daily pictures and learning something every day!  🙂  Can’t wait to catch up soon!

❤ Melissa
