A Quote About Shoes {This or That Thursday}

Shoes {Living Outside the Stacks}

I know I’ve mentioned that I’m doing the 365 Project: 2013 Edition but did I mention that I’m also doing the 52 Week Project: 2013 Edition? I know, I’m a glutton for punishment. I didn’t even come close to finishing last year but this year will be different. This year I’m celebrating my 40th year of life by documenting life.

Anyway, last week’s theme was “Quote”. So I shared my favorite quote with a pair of my favorite shoes (A gift from my mother. I know, right?) This photo wasn’t my original intent but I’m more than thrilled with the final outcome. And it sums up how I feel about shoes perfectly.

I’m linking up with Deb for This or That Thursday. I just read that Deb will no longer be hosting This or That Thursday as she starts to focus more on her scrapbooking business. I’m so excited for her and if you haven’t checked out her scrapping, you really should. I will continue to share my favorite photo from the previous week’s 365 Project or 52 Week Project right here every Thursday. I hope you’ll continue to join me.

This week’s theme for the 365 Project: 2013 Edition is “Tilt Shift”. I’m still fighting a lingering cough from my bout with the flu and bronchitis. For those of you keeping count, this is week 3 ofThe Plague“. So going outside in 2o and 30 degree weather just wasn’t in the cards for me this week, so most of my pictures have been re~edits from the archives. From my understanding, in order for a tilt shift to be really effective, the photographer should be looking down on a scenic landscape when taking the picture. So that’ll be my goal in the near future, find a high point with lots of color and snap a picture. I think tilt shift could be a lot of fun and lead to some interesting photos.

This week’s theme for the 365 Project: 2013 Edition is “Minimalism”. I’ve had a lot of fun with this particular theme because it’s challenging to focus on a single object and still try to tell a story. My inclination when trying to capture an image is to get as much into the picture as possible, this challenge has forced me to pay attention to color, detail and cropping. I’ve also tried not to do much editing, other than a bit of sharpening and, of course, cropping. You can see the rest of my images from the 365 Project: 2013 Edition by clicking here.
