I was really excited to start my Project 52 this week. I have to admit though, it was hard! There is no way I can bring my SLR camera to and from work with me everyday. It’s totally impractical, puts my camera at risk for theft or damage, and I just don’t have any more room in my bag between every day stuff I carry, gym clothes, and my lunch. I found that that only left the weekend to take my pictures and that wasn’t exactly what I’d hoped for the project. All complaints aside, this is why I created this challenge for myself. Because I want to use my camera more and use it capture every day beauty in lieu of my iPhone camera. I did really enjoy using my camera more specifically for this project and not just to photograph recipe blogs. I know it will be a challenge but that’s kinda the point.
This picture of Reggie was taken this weekend. One of Reg’s favorite things is the late morning sun that comes through our front porch door. He’s always been a sun kitty; finding any/all patches of sun, enjoying them belly up, eyes closed. I chose this photograph for Week 1 because it is a perfect portrait of my boy. I love how the sun glistens off his back and has back lit his face. The sun bouncing off the hardwood floor also somehow perfectly catches the tan accents on his belly, elbows, and hind legs. This is Reggie as I know and love him: carefree, observant, happy, and cozy.
