Last month I posted my Top 5 Pictures from January and I thought I’d follow suit and do it again this month. It’s interesting to look back on the pictures I’ve taken with a more critical eye – it’s one thing to pick the best picture of the day, which is often difficult for me – but the best from the month is a whole other game. I almost went with a Top 7 but eventually I narrowed it down to a traditional Top 5 – just for you.
This picture got a lot of attention at the 365 site – more than I was expecting to be honest. I am pretty pleased with how much detail I was able to get.
This is one of those pictures that just tugs at my heart strings in spite of any technical flaws in the picture. The symbolic meaning behind the picture combined with the memories of a great afternoon with my little boy just make this picture perfect for me.
I’m loving how this picture came out – and it’s capturing a pretty huge milestone. Dan taught me how to knit last month and I’m still going strong(ish) with it. I wasn’t crazy about these metal needles which are extremely slippery, but they did make for a nice picture. I recently switched to a smaller pair of bamboo needles which I’m using to knit a baby blanket for a friend of mine and her upcoming little bundle of joy.
This picture was taken a long with a whole bunch of cute pictures of the girl attached to these cute little fingers, but artistically speaking this one was the money shot. Another popular one at the 365 site.
Lastly, I love how I captured her beautiful blue eyes in this picture. Her brother’s eyes were actually even more brilliantly blue when he was her age. Now they are a much lighter grey blue which I am very fond of. BB’s eyes have changed shade several times since she was born – I’m a bit curious to see what color they settle on when she’s older.
I can’t believe it’s March already. I’m pretty proud of myself for still sticking with this project and I gotta tell you, I’m loving it. If you’ve been doing a 365 project also, I’d love to see it – feel free to share a link with me in the comments section below!
