I made it!
365 days of shooting *something* everyday. I can’t say I would want to sell all those photos taken, but a few of them are worthy.
It’s going to be weird getting up tomorrow and not having to find something to photograph. Hmm. Maybe I’ll do it anyway, this isn’t something a person can go cold turkey on!
Happy New Year everybody. Thanks for sticking it out with me.

Got up early today to head over the mountain to Spokane for Christmas. Snoqualmie Pass was both eerie with the absence of traffic and beautifully snowy.

Two early morning sunrises are coming your way!
The first taken from the car as we drove back over the mountains to Seattle once again.
Friday, December 27th
A reward for getting up early was this lovely sky.

And a tasty treat one of my co-workers surprised me with today. Birthday week! Yay!

The very last Macro Monday! We’ve looked at everything from food to bugs to metal to parts of a car. Sometimes I knew exactly what I was going to challenge you all with, but most of the time it was either a late Sunday night or early Monday morning dash to find something I hadn’t done before!
(I do apologize for it’s blurriness. This particular subject is much too wiggly to get a good crisp shot…)
Though I won’t be working on a 365 project next year (I can’t believe tomorrow is my last day of this one! I almost made it!!) I do hope to keep doing a Macro Monday each week. I got a sweet Macro flash attachment for my camera that I am looking forward to trying out!

I made delicious soup tonight. I *may* have made a teensy bit too much, and will be taking it for lunch until Christmas.
*I also cropped this photo to keep you from seeing too much of my terribly messy counter/stove top.

Seriously a beautiful day today.

A fun snowy morning today. Saw two Bald Eagles swooping down on the lake for breakfast.

I know you’ve already seen my gingerbread house, but I gave it a new roof.
Sunday, December 22nd
A bonus Macro today that I made especially for a friend’s birthday.
Monday, December 23rd
And today’s Macro Monday Challenge. I’ll post the answer later tonight.
(Though it is already a bit of a gimmie!)

Not much to offer you for today, just a little sunset on the way into work this evening.
Thursday, December 5th
Of course, my favorite day of photos this week.
Friday, December 6th
A little quiet library time before starting work

Got to visit with a couple friends when we were over in Spokane this weekend! (yes, I am in this photo, but I promise I took others today!)
Monday, December 9th
As can be expected during the final week of November, in the USA, the following photos mainly consist of FOOD.
Happy Thanksgiving week!
Tuesday, November 26th
I got to cook my Romanesco Broccoli today. Unfortunately as I sat down to my snack I noticed lots and lots of little black boiled bug carcasses in amongst the swirls. Ah well. It looked pretty, anyway.
Wednesday, November 27th
Yup. I made cookies today. Are we surprised?
Thursday, November 28th
Happy Thanksgiving! We had homemade cranberry sauce. So easy!
Surprisingly, I also went outside for a bit (though not for long! It’s COLD over in Spokane!), and found these very photogenic grasses.
Friday, November 29th
I made mini Apple pies tonight. In Mason Jar lids. I learned the idea from this blog: Dessert for Two
Saturday, November 30th
I made a giant cookie to send to my nephew. He’s turning 3. :)

Tomorrow’s Macro Monday shot, taken today.
Monday, December 2nd
What do you get when you have a cookie snack while wrapping Christmas gifts?
Well, what you get is a mess, actually.
Good Morning! Everybody ready for Thanksgiving?

With my chances of finding the perfect mushroom fading quickly, I’ve decided to start looking with another focus, abstract.
Sunday, November 24th
Label found on can of Mountain Dew (it’s my favorite, I’m allowed to make fun)
Monday, November 25th
More mushrooms for you this week, though yesterday I was out hiking through the woods when it hit me. Mushrooms aren’t so easy to spot under this thick layer of fallen leaves. As the end fall nears (or has it already passed?), I don’t think there will be much more mushroom searches for me. I may have missed my chance to find the elusive fly agaric. *sigh*
Next year, mushroom, next year I’ll get you.

No feeling so creative tonight, after over an hour and a half of this on the way home. Abra + Traffic = CRANKY!!

This book has been my companion for the last few days, trying to locate the elusive red-capped mushrooms.

Aaaand this week’s Macro Monday!
This week I wanted to focus on finding interesting mushrooms (I’m still on the hunt for the elusive Amanita Muscaria) for a project I’m working on. There are mushrooms growing EVERYWHERE around here, and this project has really opened my eyes to the variety of fungus out there!

Today Isaac and I drove over to Spokane for an impromptu visit. As it happens, we got to see Emi’s recital!
Sunday, November 10th
We didn’t leave Spokane until after the sun went down, so by the time we got home I had little interest in hunting down mushrooms (though I’m sure there are interesting nocturnal varieties I have yet to learn about)
Monday, November 11th
Back to the mushroom hunt today! Toby and I went out to all the places I could remember seeing mushrooms before.
And the search continues…
