Project 52 - Week 1 and 2

Ok, I'm a bit behind, but I'm catching up in one quick post.

I'd been hearing about Project 365 - where you take a photo a day all year, and while I think this is great, there's no way I'd be able to keep up with doing this.

But tonight, I found out about Project 52, at Scrap Artist - a challenge to take one photo each week for 2009.

A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed. ~ by Ansel Adams

I decided I could push myself to take 1 photo per week to document this year. I'll use the photos for this challenge, and also for a project at Oscraps using Sue Cummings stuff. (More on it later).

Anyway, I found out about this just as week 1 was closing - and I immediately had week 2's photo from something tonight.

So here's my start....

Week 1 -
Something That Makes You Happy (and why)
Photo Title: "Trail Ride"

Photo Stats
My Niece - Tay, Nephew - CW & my Dad.
Photo taken: Christmas Day, 2008 (I skipped the New Year's Eve Trail Ride, so I fudged on the pic).

Photo Background
Ok, I cheated a bit. This photo was taken on Christmas Day. (I skipped the New Year's Day ride).

Going riding (even though It's uncomfortable for this "city-fied" auntie...) with my niece and nephew, and my dad, makes me happy.

I need to remember that - I get frustrated while riding, but then, when I look at the pics, it's fun.

(I almost fell off the horse on this hung up in the trees after taking this pic.)

I know it's not the most "creative" photo, but it's more of a snapshot/memory jogger of the day/event.

Week 2 -
Theme: Four
Photo Title: "The Four Amigos"

Photo Stats
Kiki - the birthday girl, (second from left), along with A, J, and Gigi.
Photo taken: Friday, Jan. 11 - her sixth birthday, Elm Springs, Ark.

Photo Background
As soon as I saw the theme "four" for this week, I thought of this picture, I snapped this evening at small group. Ki - the "birthday girl" wanted to ham it up with her sister, Gi - in the blue, and friends A & J.

I've got several pictures of these four, from the last few years. Everything from tea parties to dress up days.

They are two of my good friends daughters, and I love taking pics of the four. A (red shirt) got really sick this fall, and it's so good to see her, up and around, a happy, healthy kindergartener.

This picture reminds me to celebrate the joys of today.
