Rob and Delia are off on a college tour, so it was just Fiona and me celebrating her reaching her milestone birthday. Twenty-one years old today! I took her to see Cyrano at the Park Square Theater and then to Highland Grill, where she ordered her first legal hard cider. (Legal here in the States, that is; she ordered over in England, too, where the drinking age is 18).

It's been a fabulous twenty-one years, hon! Love you so much.

From The Next Web here:
In 9 days time [May 15], people all over the world will be coming together with one single aim – to photograph their lives – as part of the global ADay.org project.

As part of an initiative founded by Swedish non-profit, Expressions of Humankind, May 15th has been designated as the day everyone the world over is being asked to pick up their camera and take a photo of what is close to them, and what matters most to them, as part of the ADay.org event.

Explaining the purpose behind the event, the organizers write, "Our mission is to use the power of photography to create, share and inspire perspectives on daily life – today and tomorrow."

So how does it all work? Join the Aday.org site, and on May 15 you will be able to upload the image that you’ve shot, and add information on who is in the picture, and the story behind it. You have until May 22 to upload your images.



All images submitted to the site will be displayed online, while some will be selected for publication in a book, A Day in the World, and others still will appear in digital and print exhibitions.

If you need a little bit of inspiration of your own on what to shoot, some guidelines have been provided. The three main categories, Home, Work and Connections, are further divided into sub-categories, and pretty much cover any topic that could possibly come to mind. If you’re stumped about what you want to shoot, the page is definitely well worth checking out.

We gathered at my sister Cindy's house this past Saturday for the annual cookie baking fun:

Here's a freeze frame shot I grabbed from the video I did of Fiona doing her form last month.

Talk to the Foot!







I'll send it to her. Maybe she'd like to make an icon from it or something.

A very nice picture of Fiona (lying down on the blanket) and me at the May Day picnic, taken by [livejournal.com profile] barondave.

Good heavens, that's quite a bit more cleavage than I ordinarily display.

(THAT will undoubtedly make everybody click the link)

See the rest of [livejournal.com profile] barondave's great May Day pictures here and here. I'm glad to see the pictures, although they make me even more keenly sorry I missed the parade. I particularly get a kick out of the dungbeetles.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] barondave for the pictures and [livejournal.com profile] minnehaha B & K for the lovely gathering. And yes, I did go back and get the boots!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] coffeeem and [livejournal.com profile] kijjohnson:

Take a picture of yourself right now.
don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
post that picture with NO editing.
post these instructions with your picture.



(actually, I sort of cheated a little. Because when I saw the instructions, I was buck-naked. Took the picture, too. But in the end, I, uh, wasn't quite that brave.)

No, you can't see that picture. It's deleted.

The girls are having a great time at camp. The camp has been posting pictures, and here are a few of the girls:

I love this picture. I'll probably use it in some way on her soulcollage card:

This concludes this "Week in the Life of [livejournal.com profile] pegkerr" meme. This project has been a lot of fun (although by the end of the week, the girls were starting to strongly object every time I raised the camera). I've greatly enjoyed experimenting with off-kilter photography, and trying to find beauty in everyday objects, by seeing them from a new angle. I may continue with one shot a day for awhile (smaller size, so I don't have to put them behind a cut.)

I'm quite happy with how many of today's pictures turned out:

I was so happy with this set of pictures that I posted more of them at my Flickr account. You can see more there of the Guthrie Window washers and the atrium glass art, which turned out really well.

I also re-did that photo I attempted yesterday, showing the corridor at work, and it turned out much better this time.

Still having fun experimenting with off-kilter perspective. The one picture I really liked, but then was disappointed with when I downloaded, was the corridor picture. I didn't realize the focus was so blurry. I may attempt to get this picture again, tomorrow, trying to figure out how to get the focus right.

Edited to add: Re-did the corridor picture the next day. It turned out much better. )
