December 20: Ātaahua

For Brylee’s baby shower we brought a bunch of small canvas’, paint, stickers and all that kinda stuff and let our guests design a canvas for Brylee. We now have 9 of them hanging on the wall in her room and it’s pretty cool because they were made for her by our friends and family even before they had met her. This canvas was made by her Aunty and is extra cool because Ātaahua is Brylee’s middle name. Her full name is Brylee Asaiah Ātaahua McQuarrie and we chose her first name just because we like it but Asaiah means God has made and Ātaahua means beautiful so Asaiah Ātaahua = God has made beautiful which we like 🙂 And that’s a wee story with a photo attached for day 352!

December 6: 3 Hearts

Still no camera! I had a big day at work today and didn’t have time to pick up the camera on my way home so my third night without it and not happy. I’ve given up on the point and shoot Samsung because it does my head in and resorted to my phone and the Instagram app for the photo tonight. Day 338 done but definitely getting my camera back tomorrow no matter what!

October 5: Three in a row

I never really realised until now just how many hearts, “love” signs, letters etc that we have around our house! I think it we sold all of the above that my wife has purchased over the years we would be quite rich… Hmmmm, there’s a thought! Anyway, this is just another example of such items from our home so I’m spreading the love on day 276…

September 20: Paper heart

I was on a friends Facebook page tonight and saw a similar photo so thought I would give it a go myself. I experimented for a while with the right amount of pages to stand up enough without looking weird and droopy before deciding that four was the ideal number. I then put it on top of a box of tissues on Brylee’s high-chair with a bedside lamp behind it shining onto the back of the pages. The shutter speed had to be quite slow so I set up the tripod, got it into position and snapped a few shots. After a brief edit I was all finished for day 261 and quite like the result 🙂

September 15: “Love”

So another night when it’s getting late and I still haven’t taken a photo so looking around the room and saw this little shelf of Mel’s. I still have 109 days left of this project which to be honest seems aaaaaaaaaaaaaaages away but I don’t know what I’m going to do with my time next year!! Going to be a luxury to just hang out at night and only do a photo when I feel like it 🙂 But I’m still keen to complete the project just because I’m pretty stubborn and said I’d do it! Anyway, a busy day tomorrow shooting photos for a school formal so I’m off to get ready for that. Day 256…check!
