Setting Up For 2017.10

So as you have probably noticed, I am trying to make more of an effort on this 365 project this year. In fact, I have basically reset it and started again. I was looking for simple ideas to get the habit going and one of the things a friend suggested was to number the posts. Apparently it gives one more of a sense of progress through the 365ness. So there's that, in case you wondered where the titles went.

Assuming I am successful in maintaining this habit, the next step is to start getting more adventurous, but for the moment I'm just making an extra effort to produce actually thought-out photos every day.

To make things quick and simple in the beginning, I figured for now I'd just post a single photo each day, i.e. set up the shot, take a bunch, pick the best, post it with a numbered title, no caption (less pressure!). I went to some effort to get todays photo (#10), but as it played out (with bunny levels of cooperation and concentration being what they are) I only got the one shot at what I wanted. The result was pretty close to what I was aiming for though so I am not entirely unhappy with it.

The thing is though, I also photographed the setup to this photo and...well...I liked the photos too much not to post them too. So here they are. This is the few seconds before todays shot and how I got that expression on her face (banana - as if you couldn't guess!). I hope you like them as much as I do!


  1. "Oh, well, for BANANA I'll let you point that black box at me.. for 12 seconds, anyway."

  2. She is a cutie and these are lovely "setup" pictures, but you have a tough bunn on your hands. Emerson would buy me a camera or even use its timer and take the pictures himself for some banana. This is a great project, and we all love it. Captions we will miss a lot.
