Day 135 – Apples and Bananas

Apples and bananas are the snacks I am supposed to reach for instead of those other sugary sweet and tasty treats like; cookies, ice cream, brownies, pies, and cake. I do like apples and bananas, and I know they are better for my health than the sugary sweet stuff, but it is difficult for me to give up those tasty treats. Vicki is a tremendous baker and that makes it even more of a challenge. So, if you have any healthy dessert alternatives that are low in sugar and carbs, please share them. We will all live a healthier life. 🙂

Day 52 Apple Puzzle

My Fifty second consecutive photo posted on my Project 365 Blog!  I was PUZZLED (I know, that’s pretty weak), as to what photo to take today.  Vicki and I love Honey Crisp apples and I just bought some yesterday.  They are so sweet and tasty, you don’t mind eating an apple a day, or maybe two or three.  So I decided my subject today would be the Honey Crisp apples.  They are so shiny and red with some yellow, green accents.  As I uploaded the pictures, I started playing around with some of the settings in Photoshop.  The apples looked great without adjustments, but I found a layer style called Puzzle, that I have never used.  I tried it and I think it looks great!  This would be a very difficult, but fun puzzle to put together.

Day 8 Fruit of the Spirit


“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” NIV Galatians 5:22-23

This Project 365 is a challenge for me.  Through the first week I have managed to post everyday except one, Friday.  I totally forgot about posting and then woke up early Saturday morning and posted the photo of the Christmas tree.  My goal is to upload a new photo each day, hoping that this project will help me develop an appreciation and awareness of photo subjects all around me.  There are so many subjects, no need to journey to a far away exotic land, when I can venture out into my own backyard, or even within my house.  I have been practicing my lighting technique using strobes.  I recently purchased a soft box which diffuses the light of the flash.  I used 1 flash (SB800) in a soft box, with a reflector in this photo.  I really like the effect.  I have learned a lot about lighting by following the Strobist blog.  There is a wealth of information on this blog.  If you want to learn more about affordable lighting for your photos, check it out.
