It’s Friday, everyone! It’s been such a busy week for me (re: taxes) and I’m looking forward to the weekend, but I couldn’t leave you without a Spurred update this week. I’m almost done! I only have November and December left to share with you. And then I have some new projects to share- though nothing crazy, don’t worry, I promised you and myself I’d take a break.
My least favorite photo in this digest is the first one, “Decorations”, because I know I could have done more, but I snapped this photo on my way out somewhere and forgot to take another (read: better) one before the day was done. My favorite is the last one, “Old Faithful”, because I love how stitched photos look like they were taken on a medium format camera.
Kel asked, “Do you keep all your photos after the year is done or just your favorites?”
That’s a great question! And I keep them all! It’s always been on my “to-do” list to get the completed projects in book form, just so I can have it on my bookshelf to look through once and a while. Taking a photo every day is sometimes the best journal, at least for me, because I instantly remember what was going on that day even if the photo wasn’t too “significant”. And it’s even better if there are words attached with my photos!
â€œDecorationsâ€ October 25th (Day 297)
Decorations in our apartment lobby!
“Moonlight” October 26th (Day 298)
“Progress” October 27th (Day 299)
After seeing my last photo of my shelf, Vanessa kindly told me about the little metal leg on the front of the bellow door allowing it to stand straight up and so now it stands without worry of it knocking over. It looks so much nicer now.
“Wings” October 28th (Day 300)
“Fashion” October 29th (Day 301)
I’ll never forget what it was like coming to the Toronto area from little ol’ Traverse City, Michigan in regards to fashion. Where I came from, if you wore jeans that fit and and a blouse you were dressing up. Seriously, every time we visit it’s a sea of jeans and sweatshirts. Not that jeans & sweatshirts are a bad thing, because they sure are comfortable, it’s just because of that I wasn’t used to the way everyone dressed here when I arrived. Ever heard jokes or references to folks making quick drug store runs in sleek yoga pants and make up? Yeah, they do that here. (And this is the part where I admit in a tiiiny voice that I totally do it now too.) Everyone looks like they’ve walked out of a magazine, even in the snack aisle. While it was tricky to get used to (and for the first year I felt like the odd step child no matter where I went) it’s definitely made getting dressed more fun.
“Stamp” October 30th (Day 302)
Our friend Will travels a lot for his work (and pleasure) and sends a postcard from all the places he visits. I keep them all, of course.
“X” October 31st (Day 303)
My Halloween make-up!
“Old Faithful” November 1st (Day 304)
Because it wouldn’t be a daily photo project (at least one of mine) if I went eight days without a photo of one of the cats, right? (This is a 3 Photo Stich!)
