Day 59 of Project365 means the end of February. I do not think I have ever had as bad an idea as my idea for a shadow theme. I did it though, so I guess I deserve some credit for at least sticking it out. I think March will be a lot easier. Should be more fun, too. At least it was a sunny morning for the last shot.
I hope our rainy season is done with. It is sunny this morning, but last night’s walk in the rain was not much fun. If it does not end soon, I am going to have to go out and buy another umbrella. This has been quite the season. I have never worn out an umbrella before. My picture for day 58 of Project365 is of the remnants of last nights rainfall.
As most everyone that has access to the Internet, thus the ability to read this blog knows, yesterday was the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. As is the custom, there are viewing parties and after parties all over Hollywood. I got an invitation to photograph the F.A.M.E Los Angeles & Bel-Air Magazine 3rd Annual “And The Oscar Goes To” Oscar Viewing Party! These photos are from the red carpet and after party at Falcon.
What a deceptive morning. I stepped out of my front door to determine what I should wear for my morning walk. As my front door faces due east, I was greeted with the warmth of a bright blue sky. I could feel there was a slight chill in the air, but nothing drastic. I opted for a light sweater. What a mistake. My house was acting as a break from the wind, and as soon as I stepped away from it the cold wind hit me. I should have worn a jacket over the sweater. My picture of the day …
The sun is out, but there are definitely a lot of rain clouds off in the distance. Reading my friend’s Facebook updates, it seems that rain has already hit many areas, just not here. That is another advantage of living by the beach, the weather is less extreme. My photo of the day for day 56 of Project365.
I have to admit, I never gave much thought to what a difficult job Punxsutawney Phil has. February is a terrible month to try and see your own shadow. I live in Southern California and it has been a real chore to try and get my shadow every day. I can only imagine that the difficulty level is extremely high in southeastern Pennsylvania. Day 55 of Project365.
I decided to try and get another shot of Horsetail Falls, so last night Buddy and I hit the road and headed back up north. Since Oakhurst has better cell phone and wireless Internet reception than Mariposa, we spent the night there. My picture of the day for day 54 of Project365 is of me admiring a carved replica of the Statue of Liberty which we came across on our morning walk.
If you are a regular reader of GotBaddog.com you will recall that last week Tanya and I went up to Yosemite to try and photograph a natural phenomena that occurs the last two weeks of February at Horsetail Falls. This phenomena requires a few things to be right in order for the effect to happen. These include sunlight and enough water coming over the falls in addition to the proper positioning of the sun, which only happens in February. We lucked out and went 2:2 on Saturday and Sunday. On Valentine’s Day we could see a storm was moving in, …
Since we had such good luck last week, shooting Horsetail Falls, I decided to come back to Yosemite. As I was driving back up to Oakhurst, I realized I never finished putting up the pictures from our Valentine’s weekend. I completely missed the photos from Valentine’s Day itself. It was very overcast, and it was obvious a storm was headed our way, so we cut through the park and came out on Highway 41. These are the photos from Yosemite National Park, going from 140 across to 41.
The mornings are a lot sunnier lately and as a result, they are a little warmer. Of course, this is not a guarantee since sunny skies mean no clouds to hold the heat in. Nothing a long sleeved shirt can’t take care of. My picture of the day for the 53rd day of Project365 is a closeup taken on my morning walk.
