A project I undertook in 2012 to share one photograph I took each day of that leap year. The subjects are diverse and show the development of my own photographic skills as I learned how to use my camera and compose photographs as I wanted them to be seen and enjoyed.
There is little enough peace in the world, so we appreciate the calm moments that we’re so fortunate to experience here. I’m very happy to share this one with you all. Our beach walks in Nova Scotia always seem to ground us and remind us of the beautiful natural elements that are always there, despite all the chaos that we see in the news and social media.
Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you are doing, friends.
With the coming demise of Google Plus, a platform where I cut my teeth as a photographer and met many wonderful creative people, many of us have moved to other platforms, including MeWe. This (mewe.com/i/elliekennard1) is where I can be found there, for any who want to join me there. I am no longer as active as I was on any social network as my life is much busier than in the days when I was so sick. But I will be sharing my posts there, as I find the platform to be not too bad a replacement for G+. Google invented the expression “Sunsetting” for what they will be doing to that platform on April 2. On that day I will share another sunset photo here and everywhere I am active, in recognition of the end of a great social network. Here is one I shared originally as part of my 366 Project back in 2012.
Original Post: July 26, 2012 – 207/366 – Driftwood, Huntington Point Beach, at Sunset
We were out at this beach at Huntington Point in Nova Scotia last night and there was another quite spectacular sunset. Although the scene might be a bit of a cliché, the driftwood, the stony Bay of Fundy beach and the low shore on the horizon is a very Canadian scene and I am glad to have a record of it for my project.
While searching my library for images for the theme “Round”, I rediscovered a favourite late summer image of mine from 2012. This was part of my Project 366 daily image series, and one I remember taking, though it was well over 6 years ago. The simplicity of the scene brings to mind the late summer heat under the deep blue sky, something we are all longing to feel again during these cold winter days.
Original Post: August 5, 2012 – 217/366 – Round Bales
By now you know that I love the lines I see in the fields around us. This is just another example, against a deep blue sky with the round bales neatly arranged.
I loved the colours of this landscape on that overcast November day, I remember. The colours always seem so much richer, deeper, stronger and at the same time gentler when the sun is not brightly showcasing them. That November afternoon there was a storybook quality about the scene, which made me stop the car on a busy road and get out to capture the moment. At any given moment, no scene ever looks the same as at any other time. The elements change, the light changes and suddenly you are seeing a different view altogether to the one you passed only yesterday, or even 10 minutes ago. That was surely the case here as I have passed this scene hundreds of times since then and never seen that same special quality in it since.
Original Post:This would have been post #312/366 for my Photo a Day 366 project in 2012.
Unfortunately the original post is lost. But the photo is not and it is one of my favourites from that year. But… that’s not the first time you have read that here, I know! Okay, I admit that I have more than a few favourites from that time. I only hope you all enjoy seeing them through the eyes of my memories.
