Halloween Madness: 365 day 4

Yesterday was our annual Halloween Party so I didn't get a chance to blog a picture.  Was too busy partying.  We had about 35 people, all in costume just having a amazing time!  Here's my favorite picture from the night... (taken with a point and shoot camera not my XSi)
Can you tell we're trying to bring the sexy?  Btw, that's me in the middle as smurfette--Kim to the left of me & Victoria on the right!  This was the 4th picture we took trying to get it JUST right... lmao, too much fun :)

Project 365

I've had this camera for almost a month now and I can't seem to put it down and am still so enthusiastic about it.  It's been a long time since I've experienced this much joy and passion about something new.  I spend all my free time either taking pictures, looking at other peoples pictures on flickr or watching tutorials on YouTube.  Yes, I'm obsessed, obsessed, OBSESSED!! So I thought I'd start doing something called 'Project 365'.  Curious about what Project 365 is?
What is Project 365?  
Pretty simple, I take a picture a day and post it--that's it!!  I know, sounds easy enough doesn't it?  But I've been told it gets pretty hard as the days go by and the new-ness fades.  I plan on sticking with it though... of course I say that now.  We'll see how it goes--wish me luck ;)  
Why you ask? 
  • Well imagine being able to look back at any day of my year and recall just what I did, who I met, what I learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)
  • A year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document my travels, accomplishments, haircuts, relationships etc. Time moves surprisingly fast.
  • And most importantly taking a photo a day will make me a better photographer. Using my camera every day will help me learn its limits. I will get better at composing my shots, I'll start to care about lighting, and I’ll become more creative with my photography when I'm forced to come up with something new every single day.
So follow along a journey through family, friendship and photography!!
So here we go: 365 day 1
Does it get better than Dairy Queen?
We were in the mood for Dairy Queen after dinner so we took a ride and yummAY!! Banana Cream Pie Mini Blizzard!!

Through my Camera's eye!

Recently for my birthday I got a new DSLR camera-- a Canon XSi.  I've always been interested in photography but I didn't know just how much I loved it until I got this camera.  I've had this camera for a total of 10 days and I've been taking pictures non stop.  So I thought I'd post some of them for you to enjoy...
It's fall in the Upper Peninsula so... enjoy it through my Camera's eyes--This picture was taken right outside my house, on the deckmy back yard
A short 10 minute drive and this is what you see
