Project 365 - Days 361-366

Okay, so obviously, I miscounted somewhere.  But you know what!?  I can't believe I'm only one day off!  So, I'm actually rather proud of myself!  Here are the last few pictures of the year - all of which were taken on my new camera...

Day 361 - December 26

And here it is!  A Nikon D3100.  We were looking at other cameras but this one was a lower entry price compared to the others and has a fun 'guide' feature to help you get the perfect shot. Anyway, it seemed to have all the bells and whistles as the more expensive cameras just at a better price!  Hopefully my pictures will start reflecting a better camera, lens and photographer!

Day 362 - December 27

Here's our little resident cutie-pie.  I was playing around with my camera, taking some close up pictures and got this gem...

Day 363 - December 28

Just before they left to go home, we got one last picture in with the cousins.  Jack was feeling the effects of a cold and teething so his Mom had to hold him in the picture (otherwise he started crying ;-(  But we got one good one where everyone was smiling AND looking at the camera!  Yea!

On a side note, I think I'm going to have to research how to get the best optimized pictures to post on the web (without having a huge file size) as I notice the pictures are not looking nearly as good once uploaded as they did on my computer!  If anyone has any tips, please let me know!

Day 364 - December 29

We had three deer visit our backyard - two of them bucks!  The lens that came with the camera couldn't get too close of the deer through the window.  But I bought a new lens the other day with an awesome zoom so I'm hoping the deer return soon so I can take some new, close-up pictures! 

Day 365 - December 30

Warm golden sunrise.  Well, it wasn't warm outside but the colors were warm!  Already, I am loving the wide angle on this lens compared to my point and shoot.  NOW you can get a better idea of the vast expanse of the sky...

Day 366 - December 31

This is my view most of the time when I'm blogging or on the computer for anything and I thought it a fitting way to end this year of pictures - as it will most like begin the next year as well!

Happy New Year and thank you for sticking with me through this year of daily photos!!!

Until next time...

  1. Congratulations on all 365! You can manually downsize your photo on your computer or you can use a photo hosting website like Picasa or Flickr. I use Smugmug which allows me to link to small, medium or large photos. I'll send you an affiliate link if Smugmug interests you. I also use them for photo storage and sharing with my family. It has good security features.
