July Photo A Day - Day 1 - Self Portrait

So, since April I've been trying to do Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day Challenge and, well,  I've failed miserably (especially last month when I didn't even take one picture).  Well, here I go again with a good faith effort.

The theme for Day 1 is Self-Portrait, not my favorite subject or thing to do, I always try to get away with doing something kind of like a picture of me for this one, but here you go, this is me after barely any sleep because I just don't sleep anymore.

I have discovered that I love my Olympus camera's Self Portrait mode.  Check out the July Photo Challenge over at Fat Mum Slim

May Photo Challenge - Day 2 - Skyline

This is the skyline in our backyard...

I probably could have composed this better, like I could have not included the tomato cage that's right there in bottom left of my picture, but, well it was the end of the day, I was exhausted and I was just happy I remembered to take the picture at all yesterday!

Day 1 - Peace

Well, I'm going to try this again.  Photo a Day for May (I did April, took a lot of the pics, but never posted any of them.  So, yesterday's assignment was peace, something peaceful...I took a picture of Kid Jedi.
Whenever he goes to sleep, he has to have his sheet wrapped around his head and even through all the tossing and turning he does in a night, he still has his head wrapped in the morning (sometimes he's all tangled up).  But, for him, it doesn't get any more peaceful than this, his brain isn't going a mile a minute, his obsessions are calmed down, though he does have cat stuffed animals, he's not worried about being a room or a floor away from any other person, he's ok...he's Peaceful.

April Photo A Day - Days 1-5

Ok, so I'm a little behind on posting this month, which is still better than last month where I forgot to take pictures after the second here we go:

Day 1: Your Reflection - one of my pet peeves about all this taking your picture in the mirror thing is that you see the camera, and since I don't do a whole lot of self portrature, I did this, it's one of my cooking pots.

Day 2: Colour - April is Autism Awareness month, and, well Kid Jedi has Autism, well Asperger's which is on the Spectrum, so here's my puzzle piece ribbon.

Day 3: Mail - I'm pretty sure we actually got something else that day, but when I went to take the picture it wasn't with these, a coupon for Jo-Ann Fabrics and a beautiful Easter card from my friend.

Day 4: Someone who makes me happy - I would have loved to have gotten a picture of Kid Jedi & his Daddy, but Kid Jedi it is...and he does make me happy even if he fights getting pictures taken.

Day 5: Tiny - not the quarter, the little Lego piece, we actually have smaller ones, but this one will do, we have a ton of them.
