Top 5 Pictures from February

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.

the snowflake

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.

all my heart is in your hand

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.

my new hobby

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.

ten tiny fingers

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.

baby blue eyes

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!

  1. Incredible pictures. I’m blown away by them all–I can relate in some way to what you have captured.

    Great job!


  2. I love that snowflake shot! Incredible! And the blue eyes in the last one are beautiful! What a great way to look back at the month.


  3. You are good at this and I’m glad you’ve stuck with it also! I see why you’re getting all the attention on the snowflake shot!


  4. I can see why you’ve chosen these pictures, and if I had to pick between them it would definitely be Baby Blue Eyes. Totally awesome how you captured the gleem, the brilliance. Gives me goosebumps, but your snowflake is a close running second. Great capture on that. Have a good day!


  5. I can see why the first one is so popular. It really caught my eye as I was checking my google reader. The detail is amazing.


  6. That pix of BB’s hands is so cute! And I’m absolutely amazed @ the detail you were able to get on that snowflake. Wow!
