Welcome to Breakfast in America

My photo journal is an eclectic mix of things; there’s no guiding theme or topic. It is whatever happens to catch my attention, what I’ve been thinking, doing, and whatever my current obsessions are. At the moment, they are clearing some of the backlog on my ‘honey-do’ list, backpacking and hammock camping.

    A Peek Behind The Scenes

    365 days can do this to you… – Normal service will be resumed tomorrow 😉

    This is how the picture actually looked when I took it. I was using a bedroom for most of my pictures, and because of the skirting board and the shadow the bed cast, I was limited to standing on a box to get my lower body away from the distraction and into the light.

    Disconnected from the main buildings and the shore, the pier seemed to float in the mist.

    My planned 365 days picture was okay, but too mundane, so I took this.

    My planned shot.

    Work on renovating the hall has begun.

    Today we took down the ceilings on the middle and ground landings and my work room. we also took out the wall between the landing and my work room.

    There was no way I was letting my camera into the the dust and dirt, so I took this shot during a break after the dust had settled. The light is great here – note to self, paint this wall white!

    Not a lot of time for a considered picture today, the title should be a give-away.

    And today’s alternate picture…

    Oh the benefits of a sheltered, south facing, garden when there is a cold wind blowing from the north.

    I’ve got to think of some picture ideas for the summer otherwise it will be just repeats of this photograph.

    I recently wrote that I had yet to capture the ‘essence’ of myself. This, I think might be it, probably my most personal self portrait to date. Though I doubt most people will be able to ‘see’ it. Day 82 of my 2007 365 Days project.
