I think one of the hardest things about a 52 week project for me is...the dating. Ridiculous isn't it? But I have the hardest time keeping the dates straight. Like I couldn't figure out why I am a week behind everyone else for SST...I'm on 4 and they're on week 5. Until I realized some people number by looking at the calendar rows and I number by the actual weekly date (January 1st through the 7th and so on.) Makes no difference I suppose...just whatever you prefer.

I would have preferred this image to work out differently. I can see it in my head but could not for the life of me get it to turn out that way. I shot from every angle, I moved and adjusted my light but just couldn't create what I saw in my head. I'll leave it alone for a little while and try again to see if I can make it click. (Just realized what a horrible pun...make it click, get it?...that is but I'm leaving it. I enjoy silly word plays like that :-)

    1. Thank you kindly, Dina! In my head it is a much softer color shot...out of the ones I took there were a few that I liked and this was one of them :-)

  3. Beautiful image! And I often have the same issue where I can't quite get the look I'm envisioning. Leaving it and coming back later does help sometimes :)

    1. Thanks, Suzanne! I Find that I often create things in my head that simply do not exist...fabric, stores, etc. My imagination seems to be a wee bit vivid I guess :-)

  4. The black and white with the lighting gives it a mysterious air. It looks like a book cover shot for a murder mystery. Good job!

  5. I like the black and white of this image but I totally understand when you have something in your head and the frustration of not getting it to come out in your images. Keep shooting you will get it.
