The week that was. Project 365.

Hi! Someday I’ll say ‘the week that was’ quiet and relaxing. Sorry, can’t say that this week. But, as I rushed around on errands, or drove my kids here and there, or worked at home, I looked out for the extraordinary during those busy but ordinary days.

sag harbor street art

Like the woman in the see-through-blouse painted on the back of a local building. Why had I never noticed her before?

Sunset with geese in sky

Like the sky on fire.

On my way back home from the beach – where my kids had been taking photos themselves – the sky took my breath away. This is a real sunset, not special effects. I was driving on a back country road and found a place to pull over near a farm when I took this shot. As I stood outside the car with my camera, a flock of geese flew past filling the sky with their honks.

theo jumping karate class

Like the effort in a leap.

I love watching my son in his Karate class. One moment he has to focus. The next kick or jump.

sheep sculpture

Like the sheep in a field.

Just a normal local rural scene. With a sculpture in the background.

squirrel and birdfeeder

Like the determination of a squirrel.

Would she/he make the leap?

dinosaur and car

Like the contrast between ancient dinosaurs and a modern car.

Would they chase it? Just a scene on my local highway.

luce laughing

Like the smile on my daughter.

Always special to me.

But, that’s part of the magic of Project 365. Recording those moments each day in the week that was. Or contrasts. Or… These were mine for week 10.

Hope you have a wonderful week ahead,



Please have a look at week 10 for those in Project 365 hosted by The Boy and Me.

    Squirrels will get into anything – they are pests but very amusing to watch.
