Project365 - Week 1


WOW! It is hard to believe that a week has already passed in 2013. That means I made it through one week of the Project365 Photo Challenge!  I can actually say I have enjoyed it so far. It has not been challenging, yet, and it has been fun to have photography on the brain all day long. My husband even asks if I have taken my daily photo. This week I shot my photos with my Cannon EOS, Cannon Elph and Samsung Galaxy.

January 1 - Below Zero
We woke up to negative 7 degrees. My husband had the idea of boiling some water and tossing it into the air to see what happens. What a great way to start this project.

January 2 - Resolution
On January 2nd, I came back to work after the holidays to a mess on my desk. I can't blame anyone else besides myself. It is time to become more organized and neat at work.

January 3 - Fish for Dinner
Who doesn't love fish for dinner, especially when it involves Goldfish. We were snacking on the Goldfish while making dinner when the idea hit me.

January 4 - Parked at Peking
The hubby was sick this week so we decided to pick up wonton soup from Peking Cafe, because he is convinced that the soup has "healing" powers. After I picked up our order I was walking back to my car and noticed this beauty of a vehicle.

January 5 - I Loved Her First
My husband and I own another business called The G Group, which we provide DJ services for weddings and events. We DJed a wedding the first weekend in January for a close friend of my husband. The beautiful bride and her father shared a wonderful moment on the dance floor that needed to be captured. Because I didn't bring my big purse, I didn't have my point and shoot camera. This was taken with my cell phone.

January 6 -Minnesota Beach
We received a lot of snow in December. Our deck has not been shoveled in a while, which left a perfectly smooth snow pack. Why not put my starfish in the "sand". If I can't go to the beach, I will make the beach come to me.

January 7 - Honeybee
My great aunt, Bee, passed away this past week. She is my namesake. Her first name was Bernice and everyone called her honeybee. Melissa means honeybee. This is how Honeybee Photography came to be.
