I’m still participating in Picture Spring most days, so there are a lot of images again this week. I actually didn’t get around to taking a Project 365 picture one day, but I decided not to sweat it. It’s not like I shot nothing that day. I (or my camera) was just focused elsewhere.
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Instagram 📱: Good morning, Instagram! It’s a 3-day weekend, and I plan to enjoy the heck out of it, starting with #breakfastinbed and the new #makingmagazine. With a theme like “dots” it’s got to be good 😊
365 📷: 2017 147/365 – The backyard is beginning to resemble one of those documentaries where they show you what the world would look like 10 years after all of the humans have gone.
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #awholenewpointofview For me, spring is all open windows and pretty flowers, but for others, it’s more about the joy of hedge clippers and the power of merciless trimming 😂
365 📷: 2017 148/365 – For the holiday weekend, I’ve set my LIFX lights to the “Memorial Day” color scheme. It’s pretty intense…
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #pictureacanvas I have to admit, I spent a long time squatting in my backyard wilderness, trying to trick my phone into taking an out of focus shot. In the end, I settled for creating a frame for the camera to focus on.
Instagram 📱: #memorialday #veryoldflag [Taken at my parents’ house.]
365 📷: 2017 149/365 – This cat simply refuses to look up. I can’t stand here all day, so I guess the best I’m going to get is the top of his stubborn little head. [Taken at my parents’ house.]
Instagram 📱: Skipping the coffee and the commute this morning, and working from home. My stomach feels like these peonies look: a little bedraggled 🌸🌸🌸
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #outoftheshadows It’s another cloudy, rainy day in NJ, and I didn’t see a single shadow outside. But I had a #goodmailday today, and the window was nice enough to provide a shadow when I photographed my loot ☺ (I wear my mint green @hillsidestudio2110 earrings so often, I decided I needed a pair in a new color!)
365 📱: 2017 151/365 – I ordered dinner ahead (like WAY ahead at 3pm) and left myself a note so I didn’t forget to go pick it up on my way home from work. Spoiler alert: I remembered. It was delicious. [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #punchypatterns No fabric says spring to me as much as the ones on my #pdcskinnerblendquilt do. It’s a beach blanket, but I put it on my bed during the spring and summer, when it’s off duty ☺
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #appreciationday the grass *is* just as green on this side of the fence. 🌱
365 📱: 2017 152/365 – There are still a few peonies left, so I grabbed a handful for my desk at work, where I can enjoy them all day. [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: Why, yes, I *do* think it’s perfect weather for polka dot sunglasses and an open-window drive through the countryside… Why do you ask? 😎 [Taken in the parking lot at work.]
365 📱: 2017 153/365 – I feel like this one little picture kinda says a lot about me. All that’s missing is a cup of coffee… [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: #picturespring #hiddenmessages Probably nothing too hidden about this message ☕… We went out tonight to do a little shopping and I grabbed a decaf on the way out. Going to make this last all night. Maybe I’ll break off a piece of a chocolate bar to enjoy with it.
I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
