ten on ten + 52 fridays

The tenth on the month is on a Friday in August, so my two photography projects collide. Ten on ten is ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of the month and 52 fridays is a photo every Friday for a year- starting on my 52nd birthday. I'm also playing around with some black and white photography so I  half of my ten photos here appear in black and white.

I always love having a photography project, it gets me using my camera more and more importantly helps meto seek out the beautiful things in my everyday.

This is a bit of what my Friday the tenth looked like....

52 fridays




This week I did a black & white photography walk and have been inspired to do a month of black and white photography. We were encouraged to look for light & shadows, contrasts & textures. I've always loved how the light streams into our music room (converted garage) so I asked Charlie to be my model- while he practised his drumming & then sitting in the beautiful stream of sunshine.

52 fridays




























I'm stuck at home today waiting for a tradesman so my Friday photo will be at home. As I was wandering in the garden, searching for some inspiration I particularly noticed the light & the shadows. Poppy conveniently sniffed around in front of the fence.
