Project 52

I'm still chugging along with my Project 52; I haven't missed a week yet. The last couple weeks have been close though. Instead of taking a photo specifically for the project, I've just chosen photos that I took earlier in the week. You may recognize a couple from previous posts.

week 12: from the jewelry box

This photo I took especially for the project... but I didn't think too much about it. I just took a bunch real quick of my dresser where I keep all my jewelry.

week 13: just for fun

When I saw the bushel of these hot peppers at the grocery store, I had to buy one of every colour! They're just too cute - and since I didn't use all of them in my cooking, they were a "just for fun" purchase.

week 14: fusion

I'm not exactly sure how this one fits into the theme... but I guess yoga has become a sort of East-meets-West fusion; originating in the East, it has become widely popular here in the West. I've also been trying to infuse this beneficial practice into my day-to-day life.

Ideally, I'd like to spend a bit more time behind the camera: finding the perfect subject matter for the theme, playing with the light & composition. That isn't going to be easy with my busy schedule, but I'm going to try. Starting with this week's theme: "how others see you" ... yikes. This is going to be a tricky one!

I love your peppers photo especially too! I'm still getting excited about the weekly Project 52 themes and having just about enough time to fiddle about with photos - yours look very planned and composed, even if they weren't!

Peppers are fantastic. Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks so ;)

The pictures are all great, but that pepper one- I just love it! I'd frame it and pop it on my kitchen wall!

thanks guys! looks like the peppers were a hit! maybe i should look into making it into a print...

Caroline (aka Mrs Linee) - yep. those are vintage. i traded for them off etsy - there are 5 of them. the pink & red one aren't shown. the pink one is on the other side of my dresser with the burgundy dresser set my mom gave me (shown here: http://www.ulixis.com/2010/12/vintage-haul.html ) & the red one is in my living room. :)
