For those of you new to the 12-of-12, it's a fun photography project started by Chad Darnell that goes something like this... On the 12th of each month, you post 12 photos that represent your day. You do this for all 12 months. There are other rules (more like guidelines), but you get the gist. Visit Chad's site to learn more or see photos from other 12-ers around the world.
September's 12th falls on a Sunday, so the hubby and I planned a full day with (hopefully) lots of photo opportunities. We were not disappointed. Even with a bit of rain in the morning, we got a TON of shots... so many so, that I'm totally breaking the "rule of 12" because I couldn't shrink my set any further.
So without further ado..
12:12am at home
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' with Jack Nickolson. Interesting film. I didn't realize how long it was. It was 11:45pm when it ended. Since I'm not usually awake this late, I had to stay up a little longer to get an early shot on the 12th. I felt this was a good time for today's project.
9am at home
1pm in Fredonia, NY
into the vines we went.
3pm at Evangola State Park, Irving, NY
The hubby and I had dueling cameras today - he was taking a picture of this tree when I snapped mine of him.
After our walk on the beach, we did a bit of geocaching! Here are the kids relaxing (crashed-out) after their hike (with their find, of course).
On our way out of the park, we saw this cool old covered bridge. I don't know the story behind it, unfortunately. I couldn't help playing with the "antiquing" effect in iPhoto.
8pm at home
Dinner's done, time for one more 'to do' before sitting down to publish my 12-of-12. Turning those fresh-picked grapes into jam.
A View from the Porch
Last night's and today's rain prompted mixed feelings... kind of a bummer to not have a super sunny day for picture-taking, but we were so happy because we REALLY needed it. It's been a dry, dry summer. Not much change in the yard since last month... but didn't want to leave this shot out of the series.
It's 9:45pm now. It's been a great day, but now I'm ready to relax and enjoy the last hour-or-so of the weekend with the family. Hope you had a great 12th - see ya next month!
