Contrast: Project 365 goes to Mexico

For this last week, I have been exploring  Mexico, visiting family and seeing the sites. I have many more photos I plan to add ASAP, but first, here are my chosen Project 365 pieces from the week. Enjoy!

 

Project 365 2012: 02.01.12 Paths--I took this through the car window on our first day of the trip. Long exposures are fun.

Project 365 2012: 02.02.12 Plane--I took this in the plain airplane.

Project 365 2012: 02.03.12-Butterfly-in-hand--My cousin holding a butterfly in a forest of millions of monarchs in Mexico.

Project 365 2012: 02.04.12 Shadow of Teotihuan--We all went to Teotihuacan with the temples of the sun and moon. I took this from the top of one of the walls. I love ancient places.

Project 365 2012: 02.05.12 Mariachi on Water--We went to Xochimilco, the only part of the lake left that once covered all of Mexico City. There are boats and parties all over. This is one of the boats which you can hire for a song or two!

Project 365 2012: 02.06.12 Legs--Need I say more?

Project 365 2012: 02.07.12 Positivity--I painted this the day we arrived home. I tried mixing my dry powdered paint with oil. The result wasn't brilliant. The oil didn't bring out the glitter from the paint, so I decided to add some water splatters on top. I was really happy with the splotched results.

Project 365 2012: 02.08.12 Another sunset--with my 35 mm Prime set to f1.8, I was ready to take this low-light beauty. I HEART THIS LENS!

Project 365 2012: 02.09.12 Obsession--I think I'm obsessed with eyes.

Snow-capped

We’re covered with snow. I captured this dead plant with a cap of snow with my aperture open wide so that I could achieve a very blurred background. Edits in photoshop achieved this painted, grainy final piece. Thanks for following!

Whispering loudly

I found this photo which I took during out first snow back in December. I can’t believe the perfect ring around these beautifully dancing trees.

They are dancing on the wind. Fearlessly showing themselves. Whispering loudly.

Catching up

Here is what I’ve been up to this week…

 

Project 365 2012: 01.08.12 Hug your friends--I took this after a wonderful day of youth government with amazing people who I don't get to hug very often.

Project 365 2012: 01.09.12 Doodle--I nearly forgot my art on this crazy day. Luckily I'm always doodling.

Project 365 2012: 01.10.11 Why not?--I like to be unexpected. I decided to volunteer for a local theatre company today. I think it's the beginning of a wonderfully spontaneous experience.

Project 365 2012: 01.11.12 Earnest Poster--I finished the poster for my next production with the new company, 608 Productions. I got the posters printed and I'm very happy with them. COME TO THE SHOW!

Project 365 2012: 01.12.12 Spooky Snow--The snow finally started falling in the midwest today after a spring-like January. I really like the color of the sky and the orange from the light reflecting on the falling snow.

Peeking out

The bond between this mother and daughter brown capuchin monkey team was amazing to watch deep in the middle of Monkey Island outside of Puerto Maldonado, Peru. This photograph is dedicated to my amazing mom who has been so dedicated, loving, caring, guiding, helpful and over all, a fantastic friend. Today is her birthday. I love you, Mom!!

This little capuchin monkey just wanted some attention as he sat on his ledge and posed for me. Taken on Monkey Island, Puerto Maldonado, Peru.

With the clouds


Copyright Hannah Priscilla Craig 2011

At the Cruz del Condor in the Colca Canyon, 1 hour from Yanque, Peru, you will find outlandish views of one of the deepest canyons in the world. Once the clouds cleared, we could see more than two miles down. We were walking through clouds.
