Ten on Ten: November 2011


I found out about the Ten on Ten photo project several months ago, and NaBloPoMo is finally giving me the motivation to give it a shot (ooh, bad pun...that one's for you, Zo). Founder Rebekah Gough explains:

I started the Ten on Ten project back in January of 2008. My amazing family had just given me my very own SLR for my 28th birthday. I had given birth to my second son (sixteen months after my first) and out of desperation to combat a horrible bought of post pardum depression I longed for a project to help me find beauty even when my world was so exhausting and hard with two little ones running around. 
The project has since grown to be a fun and interactive way for bloggers from all around the globe to document a snap shot of their lives too, once a month on the tenth taking a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours. Finding much life and beauty among the ordinary things of our day! 


Tonight is Date Night In for Steve and me, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get the second half of today uploaded and posted--but I thought I'd go ahead and take some time this afternoon to post my first few photos. It has been fun to keep my camera nearby all morning and pay closer attention to the beautiful ordinary all around me!

I don't know if I should say "thanks" or be embarrassed that you thought of me when you thought of a bad pun (as if any are "good"). Anyhoo, are there supposed to be pictures below your post? I didn't see any. I love the concept of 10 on 10. I might give that a try.

:) you should say thanks - I think of you with a smile!

and no photos? there are six here so far...not sure why they're not showing up. hmm.

ah, I found the problem. Picasa didn't upload them properly, but my computer was showing them because it could find them on my local hard drive. thanks for the heads up - should be fixed now!

"Thanks" for the pun compliment, then. And yes, now I see the pictures. They are beautiful. Elijah reading his book is my favorite of him. And Jude's chubby foot and his smile are too cute .It's like I can hear him giggling through the screen.
