Photography Projects 2014 - March

My 365, A Year in Song and Project: Gratitude - March 2014

What a lovely March we had.  Our relatively mild winter has become a lovely sunny spring, the clocks have gone forward and there is more light!  Here's a round up of my personal photography projects for the month gone by.

My 365

Still no missed days (hoorah!).  I found most of the prompts fairly straightforward.  I think the most taxing was #annoyed, which is a little surprising since I do tend to get annoyed at many little things on a daily basis, but just found it difficult to think of an image that represented it.  I went with rain in the end.  Who doesn't get annoyed by the rain?

Anyway, here are the photos from March:-

A Year in Song - 52 Week Project

My weekly project with The Photographer Within featured several songs that I wasn't actually familiar with!  I think some are more popular in the US, or just part of the charts that I don't listen to!  I still enjoy them as a prompt for an image, something to think about over the week, to shoot and create.  Here are the entries for March with the lyric underneath -

Project: Gratitude

I had a couple of my images shared by the Project: Gratitude team this month, sharing the gratitude!  Here are the photos that I included this month -

I had some awesome post delivered yesterday. I've been following @cirriform on Instagram for many months and I love her photos so when she offered to send a print out in the mail as an exchange for anyone who wanted to take part I was in! Who doesn't like getting cool stuff in the mail? I sent mine to her and emailed my address.

So yesterday her little package was delivered, along with a lovely card, and I'm so grateful to have connected with someone who I wouldn't have otherwise met, through a shared love of photographs. Thank you Ryann (@cirriform)!

Grateful that not only is she fine and healthy (as expected), but that after over 3 hours' wait in A&E when I was bored, frustrated and grouchy, she was the one who still had a smile and was cheering me up. She taught ME a few things about patience, for once.

Grateful that she climbed the stile rather than just walking through the gap next to it - that she'd rather take the challenging route just for the fun of it than the easy, boring route. Lessons to learn from childhood...

That's it for March.  Check back for next month's projects update!
