100 Days Project

Robyn: Things that bring me happiness

I have never though of myself as a creative person but I have been inspired by my sister who is doing this for the 2nd year, so thank you sis.

My project is about taking a photo everyday of something that makes me smile and brings me happiness. I won't plan in advance what it will be, I will simply photograph whatever it is I notice on the day that makes me feel good. I want to do this to get into the habit of appreciating all the good things in life on a daily basis.

This project is also about learning how to use my camera and all the settings. I don't know much about photography but I really love it ever since I was given a camera last year. I work well with deadlines rather than left to my own devices, so it will be a good way to get the motivation to push myself to learn about photography and use something other than the programmed setting. I want to try taking different types of photos and to learn about what makes a photo look good.

Day 23:

Rainbow

The weather in the past 12 hours has been weird. We've had very heavy rain, galeforce winds, a big thunder and lightening storm, then with a very quick temperature drop we got a big hail storm and the front lawn and roads were white. It was apprently snowing not too far away from us....and this is Melbourne!

So it was even cooler to open the blinds this morning and see a huge rainbow across the sky. I went outside (bloody freezing...reminded me of NZ!) and there was blue sky where the sun was rising on one side, and dark grey clouds on the other side. Add in the light drizzle and voila, a beautiful rainbow. I only managed to get one quick shot as it was just fading as I grabbed my camera. It had been much birghter and bigger than this but still happy to get a good shot.

What a great way to start a Saturday morning.
