Our morning walk start the same way every time — Marge and I are taking Veronica to kindergarten. Just a few weeks ago Marge was still mostly sitting in her stroller during this. But now I’ve discovered that she is fully capable to follow us all the way long to the kindergarten (opposing to us following her) and can walk without even asking me once to carry her. Suddenly, she acts so grown up!

Wow, it’s getting even colder! Look, Marge is in her winter hat again! My hands were freezing and became totally red while I was clicking. I was sorry for not taking gloves and scarves outside. And of course, it was just yesterday when I put away winter accessories.
It was raining today and I was actually happy about it this time. Because, you know, home is not going to clean itself. So I even felt a relief when saw the grey stormy sky when I woke up this morning. Nevertheless, it wasn’t raining in the wee hours and we could enjoy some fresh air with Marge outside.
I was terribly bad at updating my blog lately. And it’s not even summer, when we mostly will be living outside (which means no technology except my camera and phone with us through the whole days). I like the idea, but I do wish I had some more time to be able to make more records here. There are so many untold stories that, I’m pretty sure, would be fun or at least nice to remember.
So, the spring is finally here to stay. Not only the beautiful picture with budding flowers and new leaves, but also with a nice warmth in the air. This winter was so long and the coldness was so stubborn, that even mother-nature refused waiting any longer and started to beautify everything around here despite of the chill.
Time to plant something on our balcony!
I decided to test the limits of my 135 mm lens today. I really don’t know why I haven’t done it before. The question was how tight in-camera crop I can get with this lens. As a result, I have these series of my self-portraits. It looks like it’s time to change my profile picture on Facebook!
We woke up to this beautiful scene yesterday. Snow in March? Nothing unusual for us. Though, we would prefer it in December and January.
Frankly speaking, after the year of intense shooting with intention, I got tired. I love perfection, and technically correct images make my heart sing. But this time I decided to let perfection go. At least for a day. I decided to document a day in our life, but make it less stressful for me. I decided to shoot like I did it before I have learned all that great stuff about light, composition and etc. So I shot without much thinking, taking into account only my guts feeling.
This is the last post in the Project 365 series. Wow, that was a great marathon! Not a day without a picture taken. A year of practice, gaining new knowledge, and improving my skills day by day. A year of a huge progress. A year full of experiments that I wouldn’t try otherwise.
