January 31st 2013 - Day 31.

''Officially 1 month complete! I'm hoping to take a new portrait of Jake and I at the end of every month this year, we'll see. Bit of a candid one to say goodbye to January.''

January 30th 2013 - Day 30.

''The sun has been out all day today! Clear blue skies too and a rainbow this morning. Almost caused some damage to my eye taking this shot, but I think it looks quite cool. ''

Tuesday, 29 January 2013

January 29th 2013 - Day 29.

''Only my second birding photograph of the project as it is very cold to sit outside for long periods still. So instead of sitting still, I switched out the 18-55 for the 70-300 and took the camera on Bakers walk with us. Pretty common, but still pretty - here's a Blue tit. ''

January 27th 2013 - Day 27.

''I used an alternative route home from walking the dog today and stumbled upon the back of this house at the end of my street. I swear I don't line in a rough area haha. I gather from the charred wooden window frames and blackened brick that it must of been subject to a fire at some point, but it's been boarded up for well over the year or so I've lived here. It doesn't look as wrecked from the front, but I thought it was very characteristic for today's photo.''

January 26th 2013 - Day 26

''Little mess about with the Naked Pallet tonight. I use it everyday, but never really payed much attention to the darker colours - until now :) ''

Friday, 25 January 2013

January 25th 2013 - Day 25.

'' My pretty pink bath from today. Using a 'Lush' bath bomb that I got in a Christmas gift, I was pleasantly delighted to bathe in a tub of pink and tiny hearts! Nothing better than a good bubble bath and face mask to chill out! ''

Thursday, 24 January 2013

January 24th 2013 - Day 24.

'' I finally got to take Jake and Baker to the lake, that's out back of the building I'm at for my course, today. We fed the ducks and swans, who didn't like Baker and hissed at him! I took a few photos and as it was so cold we headed straight home! You can check out all the photos I've taken in our recent bad weather here :)''

January 23rd 2013 - Day 23.

''My morning consisted of attending the second week of my course. Retail expert me! Hopefully tomorrows photo will be better...''

Tuesday, 22 January 2013

January 22nd 2013 - Day 22.

''We pass this little junction between the alleys everyday on the walk to the park. It in a way reminds me of Billy Elliot. It's not the classiest of neighborhoods but it looks...interesting. Oh, and as you can clearly see from today's photo, bye bye snow!''

Monday, 21 January 2013

January 21st 2013 - Day 21.

''I spent the full day doing housework and even considered making today's photo a picture of my hoover. However as the snow is gone, I thought I'd prove it. ''

Sunday, 20 January 2013

January 20th 2013 - Day 20.

''Our little puppy dog lost his first baby tooth tonight! Maybe a little gross to some people, but I think it's cute haha. ''

Saturday, 19 January 2013

January 19th 2013 - Day 19.

''This is the last of our babies to introduce to you all. Here is Bunny! And yes, that is his actual name. The eldest of our pets and usually the least loving. This is probably because he started out as an outdoor rabbit and wasn't handled as much (we just let him do his own thing in the garden). However, after his castration a few months back he started to hop up and sit on our laps while he was out and tonight he, for the first time, let me pick him up! ''

Friday, 18 January 2013

January 18th 2013 - Day 18.

''I enjoyed a lovely Italian lunch with my Mam today. We met up in Morpeth for the day and it's turned out that Mam has to stay here thanks to this countries complete intolerance to coping with snow...''

Thursday, 17 January 2013

January 17th 2013 - Day 17.

''As I promised yesterday - a birding photo! I remembered to take food for the birds today so I had all the geese, ducks and coots ice skating towards me to get in on the feeding session. Then I spotted this little guy who seemed quite friendly! He kindly posed for me, hung around a while and then I left a fat ball in the tree for him as a thank you.''

Wednesday, 16 January 2013

January 16th 2013 - Day 16.

''So I started another new course today. The most exciting bit is the building has the cutest little lake located right behind it, so you can guess what I spent my lunch break doing! The water was all frozen over apart from one part where all the ducks, geese and coots all swam around in circles together. I'm gonna take some food and feed them tomorrow so expect more birding photos! '' 

Tuesday, 15 January 2013

January 15th 2013 - Day 15.

''One of the worst photos I've taken for this project so far and I'm full of excuses for it. It was a last minute attempt as we had a long busy day of driving another 200 mile round trip, but this time in the snow. It was pitch black and I had to have the iso up super high but again, had not thought to bring the tripod, hence grainy blurry messy photography. It's of Scarborough though  and I love Scarborough. ''

Monday, 14 January 2013

January 14th 2013 - Day 14.

'' Today it snowed. First time this winter! Even though I hate it (and all cold weather) we took Baker out for his first play date with snow. He LOVED it! ''

Sunday, 13 January 2013

January 13th 2013 - Day 13.

''We drove down to Scarborough today to pick up Jake's friend who is coming to stay for a couple of days. Well no trip to Scarborough is complete, even in winter, without a walk along the beach. Baker was such a good boy during the 2 hour car ride and had lots of fun playing on the beach. He's still only 4.5 months old and weary of other dogs but we play chase together! Apologies that it's another photo of my puppy - but expect that this year haha. ''

Saturday, 12 January 2013

January 12th 2013 - Day 12.

''Just a quick shot of some supplies for this evenings baking activities! Chocolate layer cake for our visitor tomorrow. ''

Friday, 11 January 2013

January 11th 2013 - Day 11.

''I'm actually typing this up at 22.34, before the actual photo has even been taken. Without a doubt the hardest photo to take ever.

I'm not a one to take photos of myself, like ever, hence being behind a camera as a photographer. The script on my chest is my belated 'Christmas gift' so I wanted to get this photo done to show you all. I have to admit though, I got a little bit of help with this's in my portable studio that I set up in the bedroom, I sorted the lighting and camera and everything then got my other half to press the button when he thought I looked presentable. [Edit - As he is also a photographer, he completely changed all my settings/lighting etc and forced me to smile. Apologies for my crooked teeth :( ] I did try to do it by timer but for over 30mins I just got stressed that I didn't look right.
Anyways, I suppose this is the first - probably the only - shot of me on this P365. Hi.''

Thursday, 10 January 2013

January 10th 2013 - Day 10.

''Jake dismantled his old skateboard ready for getting a new one this weekend. We didn't give each other gifts at Christmas so once I get paid from my Xmas temp job my gift to him is a new deck and my gift may or not be revealed in tomorrows photo...! The deck in the photo is Mystery, the trucks are Independent and the Wheels, as you can still kind of tell, are Spitfire. I'll no doubt show you his new deck at the weekend/next week. ''

Wednesday, 9 January 2013

January 9th 2013 - Day 9.

''Apart from being cropped, this is completely unedited. I love all the gorgeous greens of the outdoors so can't wait until summer arrives, but today it was (obviously) still light when I walked Baker, the grass seemed super green under the light of the sun and was covered in condensation droplets - it looked awesome! ''

Tuesday, 8 January 2013

January 8th 2013 - Day 8.

''This is what my pretty pink Nike shoes look like after a dog walk. My jogging pants are in a similar state, but of course I don't mind. Things can be washed. I can't stand people who dress up and won't play with their dogs. We always have fun at the park :) ''

Monday, 7 January 2013

January 7th 2013 - Day 7.

''Today I thought I'd try a silly idea I had of photographing a long exposure of my bath running. Obviously, as you can see I have cropped out the area where the water is, ha - defying the goal of this photo but it was a failure anyways. Through the 10 or so shots I took at different settings I guess this was the best of a bad bunch and at least catches light through the running water, droplets on the bathtub and the shower curtain. ''

Sunday, 6 January 2013

January 6th 2013 - Day 6.

''Meet the second of our three animal friends. This is Nike. She has the most weird but beautifully coloured eyes for a rabbit but her little nose and crumbs on her mouth were too cute to not make today's photo. Since Baker came along our two house rabbits haven't gotten as much run of the flat as the usually would, but that's changing this year. Our first babies have such individual little personalities - I'm sure I'll photograph them alot more during this project.'' 

Saturday, 5 January 2013

January 5th 2013 - Day 5.

''We live on the coast and always get to see some awesome acts of mother nature. This was the sky at Whitley Bay around 4pm today. So pretty!''

Friday, 4 January 2013

January 4th 2013 - Day 4.

''Uh Oh, almost failed on day four today. After spending all day running essential errands by the time we went out for a walk with Baker it was nearing dark (although it was only 15.30!). Even with the ISO whacked up I still had to have the shutter pretty slow to capture anything without the tripod, which annoyingly means my photos are so grainy. Anyways, at least it's a photo haha, here is my baby puppy dog, Baker.''

Thursday, 3 January 2013

January 3rd 2013 - Day 3.

''I am so excited to post this photo today, what a lucky capture. My friend Sophie and I made our second visit to the Gosforth Park Nature Reserve  and in the two months since we were last there it has changed alot! The trees were bare as was the bird hide feeding station. With not a bird in sight we had a trek around the woodland area only to have a few close encounters with lots of young deer! I'll post more photos from our trip on my other blogs.''

Wednesday, 2 January 2013

January 2nd 2013 - Day 2.

'This is the weather station at our local beach in Blyth. I love how it lights up at night time and have always had trouble photographing it but I think today's shot is quite cool with the sunset in the background too.'

Tuesday, 1 January 2013

January 1st 2013 - Day 1.

So here we go, yet another attempt at a 'Project 365'...
If you have not been directed here by either my Facebook, Twitter or main blog - go check them out in the links above to find out who I am!

Thanks for viewing, Happy New Year and I look forward to trying this out again.

'' Today we took the dog for a walk along the Seaton Sluice cliffs to St Mary's Lighthouse, Whitley Bay and brought the camera along for a change. It's been so hectic the last month or so that my Nikon has taken a back seat as has my own health and well being. It was great to have a relaxing walk with my boys today. That is my main man in today's picture taken at Cambois. ''
