More Pictures

Flame 1PPD 9/23/09

This one is from my garden. The reason for the strange coloration is the setting sun, which was hitting just the flowers, causing them to glow. (They are usually a bright but otherwise unremarkable red.)

I missed my first 1PPD last week (9/25) - it took me a month, but it did eventually happen. My schedule got shaken up, and it was a really busy day, most of it away from home. I thought about swapping in a picture and calling it 9/25, but decided that wasn't the point of the exercise. I'll do my best to snap something every day, but if I don't make it, I'll just try to pick up where I left off and keep going.

This project really is making me look at things differently - who would have thought I would have fun taking pictures in a parking lot? And yet I snapped photos there 2 days in a row.

As always, feel free to check out the photo set for the whole project.

Moody Blue
Originally uploaded by jessajune

My parents gave my sister and I each a piece of jewelry to celebrate finishing grad school. Alicia knew pretty much exactly what she wanted, and got hers almost right away. I waffled for a long time... it didn't take me long to decide I wanted an opal, but it took me forever to find a piece that spoke to me. This was made by Artisan Impact, who I found via Etsy (of course). Sometime when I am less caffeinated and excited I will try to take some better close-up shots so you can see the lovely detail. Today, I can only really operate on the level of excitement! blue! sparkle!

It all really happened. I have my degree, and I'll think of that every time I wear this lovely piece.

(Yes, the stone is manufactured. No, I don't care. It is fiery and blue and large and perfect and I have wanted one ever since I was a little girl.)

Ripening Tomatoes 1PPD 9/5/09
Originally uploaded by jessajune

You might imagine from the number of 1PPD photos I've taken of tomatoes that I loved to eat them. But the truth is, while I do have a fondness for sungold cherry tomatoes right off the vine, for the most part, I'd prefer to leave the raw tomatoes - at least until they've been turned into sauce.

The reason I have taken so many pictures of them is that they're gorgeous - full of texture and color. And like many things in the garden, they're ephemeral... in a few weeks, they'll be gone until next year.
