Day 365/365: The End…..

Posted in People by Dave on January 1, 2011

So….this is it, the end. I can’t believe it. It all started on December 31st, 2009 when my friend Steve called and said I need to do this Project 365 with him. After he told me all about it, I said “have fun”. But the seed was planted. Then on January 1st he called again and talked me into it. So here we are 365 days later. What an incredible ride it’s been. Thanks Steve!

I also want to thank all the people that have been following along and giving me encouragement along the way. You sure made this a lot more fun. Sometimes you just made it bearable to continue. I have new friends from all over the world and it has been a real pleasure to follow you fellow 365’ers.

Most importantly, I want to thank my family for putting up with me all year! Liz helped me choose my POD almost every day. The kids helped me to shoot better and quicker. They limited me to 4 total shots of them per day. By the end of the project, I knew I could get a good shot of them within 4 clicks of the shutter.
I have learned to see the world differently as a result of this and a highly encourage anyone who is thinking about doing a 365 to do it. I won’t be doing another though!

Look what I found in the fridge today! It sure made my picture of the day an easy choice. I can’t believe there are only two days left.

Yeah, you know I’m about done with this when I resort to shooting flowers in the backyard. 🙂

Day 359 – White Christmas

Well kind of…..the fog rolled in this morning. This was the view out the backyard and the fog created a “white Christmas” for us.

Day 357 – sunset after the rains

With the record rains finally over, I was happy to see the sun setting on this field. We had nearly our annual rainfall in just 5 days!


Day 356 – Ken & Barbie

Posted in children by Dave on December 22, 2010

Classic Barbie & Ken, circa 1974.  While searching for hiding places I stumbled upon Liz’s dolls. They looked so fashionable that I had to put them on the runway.

Day 355 – Kristine Lilly

Posted in children, soccer by Dave on December 21, 2010

The girls are in soccer camp with some of the sports biggest legends. They are getting coaching from Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Trisha Venturini, and current Tennessee coach Angela Kelly.
Some of their combined accomplishments include 5 Olympic Gold medals, 5 World Cup Championships, and 12 NCAA Championships.

These women aren’t just great soccer players, they are really good coaches and fun people.
