I am really happy with the photos and literature selections from this month. In some ways it was the hardest challenge of the project for me so far, because many days I was uninspired and couldn't think of another way to photograph water. Those were the days when I had to find a way to play with it. Here is the whole water set on flickr if you want to see all the water shots I've got.
I had fun pouring over all my old paperbacks looking for water passages. All of the books I posted excerpts from are old favorites and actually in my house (not library books). I remembered the passages I took as particularly lovely or meaningful and I was often able to take a shot of water that in my mind related to the importance of water in the story. That is pretty amazing I think. I have a couple more books I haven't included yet and since I started the theme a few days into the month I may carry it over into August.
The theme for this month is going to be food. I don't think I'll be as strict about it because I don't think I want to really photograph food every single day. But it seems like a good month to show the variety of fresh fruit and vegetables we are enjoying.
I took photos all through 2007-09 for Project 365 to post at least one photo a day. Now that my oldest son is in the Air Force we are using this photo blog to share our adventures with him across the miles.
