Longing for some floral color to offset the grey of winter, I brought a bouquet of hyacinths home from the market.

Right out of the gate, the photo idea for February 1 is "Perfection". sigh. Nothing is perfect. No one is perfect. There are fleeting moments of perfection. Like happiness and beauty, perfection is in the eye of the beholder.
I know I have commented on other's photos - "Perfection" because I felt that everything came together... at that moment. But to capture it today? I just don't know.
A sunny, warm day in mid-winter is probably as close as I'll get.
* Intentionally out of focus.

Well, my photo-a-day project has gone off the rails but I found something online that might help me get back on course. Photoblog.com posted a year's worth of daily photo topics/subjects, available for download. I'm hoping this will spur my creativity.

You can't get there from here.
For the New Year, I wrote on my chalkboard: "12 New Chapters, 365 New Chances". No pressure there, right? I only know that change doesn't happen if you don't make a move. Right, left, up, down... just move off center.
I have long been of the mindset that each day I should do something that makes it different from yesterday. Not momentous things necessarily; simply make something different, new, better.

Christmas is back in the basement... again. The house always looks dull after I take down the tree and lights. Add the dreary landscape and January looks bleak indeed. But I've decided to try another photo-a-day project because I've become a very lazy photographer. I partly blame my phone camera. I tend to 'snap' a picture instead of putting a little thought into comp, lighting, etc. So I will have to utilize the winter bleakness as best I can.
We will see.

I have been overthinking what to hang on my newly painted hallway wall. Photographs? Watercolors? A search-for-frames mission to the upstairs closet led me to a long lost watercolor. Back in the early '90s, I did several versions of this theme - 'hidden scene (usually a beach) revealed by tearing back the paper'.
Anyway, I thought I had either sold or given away all of them but this was way back in the closet. Dust it off, hang it up.
