Some of you have been following along with us since the beginning of this blog so you may remember the other blog that I started a few years ago in January 2009.
It is called
Through Mom's Lens
and you can link to it HERE: http://thrumomslens.blogspot.com/
It is a Project 365 blog where you are supposed to post a photo every day for a year! I didn't actually start it on 1/1/09, but instead on 2/1/09. My first photo posted was of Brendan (age 8 back then) and our two mini-dachshunds, Rosey and Franklin.
The first year, I posted regularly until July 15th, and then the blogging abruptly ended! Fast forward to January 2, 2010. I thought I was ready to start again with the new year. I must have quickly decided that there was no way I could keep this blog going so I took a Project 365 break indefinitely.
This year I have been taking an online photography class from Lisa at The Long Road to China . I have taken several of Lisa's classes, and she has taught me so much! One thing that I realize is that I have my camera out so much more when I am in a class so I am hoping that this year I will be able to post regularly. Actually some of my online classmates inspired me to start posting again as well as one of my dear, long-time friends MARIA. She has also started a Project 365 blog, and she is also starting an online photography course.
It is called SHUTTERBUG!
I am hoping that Maria can help keep me on track this time around! :)
Another major difference between posting way back then and now is that I am more skilled at using Photoshop. I am by no means an expert, but I can get around better with post-processing of photos. I have also learned a little about making and using watermark brushes so I made this little cutie last night for the photos that go up on my PROJECT 365 blog.
AND the BIGGIE is that I now own a Smartphone and I am slightly addicted to Instagram! For those of you who also use Instagram, please feel free to follow along! My screen name is
I love snapping random pics of events throughout any given day with my phone when I don't always have my DSLR out. A couple of my posts for 2013 have already been Instagram pics.
I'd love for you to also follow me at Through Mom's Lens if you would like!
