I decided to start a new collection of photographs of people mirroring the natural world. The photographs will have a larger meaning under the surface to convey emotion through the natural world around us. This collection is called “Human World”. We humanize anything we can find, and this collection brings those illustrations out of my mind’s eye.
I started today with “Forest of Uncertainty”.

There is a beauty in uncertainty.
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.
This week was a photography week. Yesterday I bought a 35 mm prime lens, which I’m having a lot of fun with. The picture from yesterday was taken with it.
I head off for Mexico City tomorrow, so I should have some fun Project 365 photos this week!
Thanks for reading!
Project 365 2012: 01.27.12 Silks--We had our first rehearsal for a circus performance. The people who can climb the silks are so amazingly strong!
Project 365 2012: 01.28.12 Huh?--My mother, Polly, makes a beautiful and hilarious clown!
Project 365 2012: 01.29.12 Circus Bliss--My sister, Elly LOVES monkeying on the German Wheel. She warmed up before our performance.
Project 365 2012: 01.30.12 Parliamentary--I am involved with Youth in Government. We use parliamentary procedure and find it fun. I find this antique book fun. Also, I LOVE YIG!
Project 365 2012: 01.31.12 Glittery--Taken in a Target store with my brand new 35mm Prime. GAA! I love this lens!
Also, the song of the week is Jack Johnson’s “If I Had Eyes“. I can’t stop listening to it. It’s one of those songs that energizes and motivates. I can’t figure out what makes it so awesome.
Paz y Amor!
We cry tears of joy, tears of sorrow, tears of anger and tears of confusion, but we fail to remember our tears of light which are the tears that aren’t physically apart of us, but are so vital to our existence.
Project 365 2012: 01.21.12 Tears of light
Our light was exquisite yesterday. I shot this using a “natural gobo”. This is my invention. I used the light coming through the window and the got the light to point on Elly’s face through the side of a window shade. Thanks for following!
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!
Project 365 2012: 01.20.12 Snow-capped
This week has been crazy! As I was putting my 365 images together, I was having trouble remembering what I did everyday. Twas a very fun week.

Have a fantastic weekend!
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.
