MCP Project 52: Weeks 28-34

Well, I haven't been very good at keeping on top of this challenge... but it has been fun going back through my photos & finding one for each theme taken during the allotted week. Still, I'd like to put a little more thought into it, especially once I graduate & enter the job search phase which should give me a bit more time at home with my camera. I know I've said that before though, so we'll see! As long as I keep taking pictures almost daily, I'm happy!

Here are the last 7 weeks, plus 1 outtake:

week 28: sweet relief
a spoonful of chocolate ice cream

week 29: get in close
a tiny feather from my finch, Michael

week 30: a letter of the alphabet
a shelf in my living room displaying my Amanda doll, the letter A and a collage of a bunny

week 31: sky
a cross-stitch of the sky, with the sky peeping through the window in the background

week 32: my favourite time of day
(well... early morning, but I had a photo of the sunset, my 2nd choice)

week 33: slow down & look back
one of my birthday gifts, a photo album half-filled with photos of my family

week 34: connections

An outtake for week 34:
I thought this was a particularly cool connection. This painting was hanging in the restaurant / bar / hall that my aunt was married in... it's a watercolour painting of a Giesler boat, one my relatives, maybe my grandpa, built. The artist is Arlington Hoffman - I've never heard of him before but his work is stunning. Very true-to-life.

I found this article about the artist & a fishing and boating art exhibit in the North Bay Nugget - there's another photo of the painting & a vintage motor if you wanted to have a look.
