This time of year, nothing makes me more comfortable than some sweats, a hoodie, and some polka-dotted fuzzy socks. Add a crackling fire into the mix, and my day is made. To include multiple elements with just a single focus, use a low aperture (think 2.5 or lower). So go find that favorite item of clothing that just makes you feel snug and warm and capture it!
So my cosy is...my purple moccasins...the Teeve ...the bedside lamp and photos from home...

Do you have something you like to do that makes you happy and is interesting? Out of several hobbies that I have, birdwatching is one I particularly enjoy. It tends to be relaxing, rewarding, and also challenging. The challenging part comes with trying to photograph them!
So at the time my happy space and interest are taking photos and flowers...the flowers in our apartment are in full bloom....the succulents as flowering extensively...even the ferns are flowering...

I like to mix it up every now and again with a black & white conversion. I’m always surprised by the details that stand out that would have been overlooked in a color version. Let’s see what stands out in your photos today. Will it be patterns and textures or maybe it’s a dramatic sky?
So my focus was the detail...as opposed to the black and white- getting the shallow depth of field and the detail...of the necklace I bought in Quebec City.

So you are going to take a photo every day for this year. That is at least 365 photos. What will you do with those photos? Will they stay on your computer or in your camera? Let me encourage you to begin now to think about all the different options for getting those photos off the camera and into your hands. You can make a book, you can make prints, you can frame them. You get the idea. Just do it!! It is such a great feeling when you see them printed out and it is so fun to watch how your photography changes and grows!
The prompt for the 365 asks about what are you gonna do with the photos...last year I embraced the Documented Life Project with the unPlanner and in the end i did make it my own. Each week I pasted and painted and created pages in which the photos from Capture Your 365 could be posted and I made pages opposite that were art journaling opportunities and making emotional connections and thinking connections. It's a lovely record of the year and so i am making it again this year but as the UnDocumented Life has finished forever (and 2017) I am making it my own and loving it...all 1.5 weeks :).

So the prompt for Capture your 365...
How do you play when the weather outside is frightful? I enjoy playing play board games. I love it when the grandkids come over and we sit around the table and play and bond together. Why not capture your indoor fun today?
So I have begun the year by playing creatively...and trying to keep things a little tidier
