066-365: Paper Tree Sculpture for +G+ 365 Project curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton +James Cockroft and myself

One thing I love about Unitec Mt Albert Campus  is the diverse range of art and sculpture to catch your eye, surprise and delight you. The grounds are very old and thus so are many of the trees. This one being appropriated as part of a paper and card sculpture.

060-365: Troubled mind with hints of Hope shining through for +G+ 365 Project curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton +James Cockroft and myself

The last few days I have felt a bit adrift. Normally when given  assignments I am full of ideas. However with my first assignment, I really don't know where I am headed or what I wish to do. this cloudscape sums up my mind nicely troubled brooding with hope on the horizon, and stry possible ideas streaming through.

heres a project to put some colour into your life
Color Photography Project (Short)

Enough of this gray boring winter.  When is spring going to get here?  Of late I have been taking most of my photographs with the intent to turn them Black and White for the Project 52 B& W.  With the gray everywhere and the Black and White photos filling up my stream, I have the need for color.  So starting March 1 and going to March 7th, I am going to post one color photo a day.  Anyone want to join me and help brighten up my world?

Feel free to share the post to raise awareness.

Guidelines

1. Let me know on this post if you're in and I will create a circle of participants.

2. Each day will be a different color with that color being the star of the shot. 
  a. March 1 - Red
  b. March 2 - Orange
  c. March 3 - Yellow
  d. March 4 - Green
  e. March 5 - Blue
  f. March 6 - Indigo/Violet 
  g. March 7 - Brown

3. Why brown?  Because I want some chocolaty Nutella goodness.

4. Shoot the actual colors.  No cheating and having Photoshop/Lightroom, etcetera give you the color.  (Tweaking or enhancing is ok, but no blue oranges. 

5. The color of the day should be the star of the shot.

6. Use the hashtag #ROYGBIV

7. Have fun!

058-365: Almost Full For +G+ 365 Project curated by +Patricia dos Santos Paton +James Cockroft and myself

Today was my first day Back at Uni and my brain by days end was a lot like the moon almost full. A great first day back, I'm so excited about this 2nd Academic year. I realized as the last of the sunset light faded and the moon rose with all the busyness of the day. I had almost forgotten to grab my image of the day, almost forgot, as my brain was almost full :)
