My Year In Pictures: March Week 3

Random is the first word that came to mind tonight as I clicked through this set of seven images.  Appropriate really since I feel like we’re just flying through each day trying to be present at every appointment and commitment while making time for a quick breath and moment to appreciate the world we live in.  If all I can squeeze in is a second to stand still and snap a picture of something random but pretty then I’ll do my best to make that image count. 🙂

Our week started with anxious Finn watching the door to keep track of every person and creature walking down our street.  At least he held still long enough for a portrait.  Monday Ryan and I walked past this sign in a shop window and it sparked a long conversation about what it means to have “freedom of speech”.  Tuesday is a shot of some pretty moss that looks like fern fronds and Wednesday I stopped to pick up a postcard about Washington State for a 1st grade project about the United States.  Thursday all I had time for was aiming my phone up toward the ceiling as I rode an escalator but I liked these pretty butterflies floating overhead.  Friday’s discovery was this cheery box of candy and Saturday night ended at the gym so John and Ryan could swim and I could get a good workout in the cardio room.

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. Thanks, Eric! It was late in the day and I was worried about not finding something to shoot for my daily photo but everything finally came together at the gym. There’s probably a message in that somewhere. 🙂

    1. I have fun trying new things and apps but regularly return to a few favorites. Snapseed is my go-to for basic editing followed by (in no particular order) VSCO and EyEm when I want a softer look. I like Oggl when I have a subject that works but I want a close-up view and am in the mood for a heavier edit. Polamatic is fun for images that are light and simple and my least favorite is actually Instagram. I post there but rarely use their editing options. A few more to try are photo toaster, pic-tap-go, enlight, big lens, pro camera and stackables.

  1. I’ll say it again. I have very much enjoyed hanging out with you on Instagram and being treated to your daily posts. And you know that I absolutely adore that picture of Finn! I wish I had your energy for the wonderful weekly recaps on the blog. I am patting myself on the back for blogging monthly at this point.
