My Year In Pictures: March Week 1

Wow, we’re only a few days into March and already I feel like it’s living up to its reputation of coming in like a lion and (hopefully) going out like a lamb.  I’ve had enough of the lion and am sitting here impatiently waiting for some lamb time.

The last Sunday of February was pretty quiet and I thought I’d capture this peaceful scene of this salt water marsh across the parking lot from our gym before the winter browns turn to green.  I had great plans to find something fun to photograph for leap day on February 29th but the day was crazy busy and by the end I was just happy I’d snapped this shot so I could find my car in the parking garage…  Tuesday morning Finn and I discovered why we’d heard so many chain saws when we found this newly installed but unused power pole by our front yard cut into pieces.  What a waste of a nice tree.  Wednesday I stopped to snap this pretty pink camellia and did you know Thursday March 3rd was National Anthem day?  I didn’t, but now I have this flag photo to remind me next year.  Friday’s shot is the big bowl of oranges on our kitchen counter and Saturday is a behind-the-scenes peek at my days work winding a big basket full of these 100% wool dryer balls.  This photo was snapped part way through the process so if you’d like to see the finished product the new listing is ready for viewing in our Etsy shop!

Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest March adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on InstagramTwitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.

  1. I did not even know there was a National Anthem Day, but I know now….Thanks. And I really like the jagged chunk out of the power pole. Too bad they wasted a power pole though.

  2. My favorite shot is Level 3! I like the shading from one corner to the other and the complementary colors of blue and orange. Is it the lighting or the processing? Somehow it reminds me of my graphic design days in college (looong ago!).

    1. The blue and orange was a combination of lighting and processing D’Arcy. The light/shadow and concrete caught my attention with the blue tints and then processing brought out the warmer tones on the opposite corner. A fun way to brighten up a simple parking lot shot. 🙂

  3. It’s funny you said the Level 3 photo was taken just to help you locate your car because I think it looks pretty artistic. I could imagine it being an album cover or something like that. 🙂
