365 Photo Project – Week 20

Between the chaos surrounding our last minute trip to the US and maddening internet issues back here in Jundiai, I ended up completely skipping the linkup for weeks 18 and 19. Blogger fail.

BUT! We’re back on track! Our ridiculously slow internet in the hotel is working today (sort of), and we’ve had a quiet week, so here we go!

Through the Bombeiros

Through the Fire Trucks

 

This is my second year of working on a 365 photo project and you would think that Brian would be used to me stopping at least once a day to take a weird or awkward photo, but I don’t think he ever will be. He smiles and shakes his head at me as I get the same odd looks from bystanders while I wedge myself between fire trucks, or take close up shots of my wine glass, or sneaky shots of him while he’s working.

Through the Apartment

Through our New Living Room (Probably)

 

Sometimes it’s an easy photo to take, just a quick snapshot of a living room maybe? And sometimes it’s one that probably makes no sense to someone watching me. A close up of the bamboo in the lobby? Why?

Because it works for me. At least it’s a little easier to pull off than last year’s “From Where I Standproject. I got to be the freak who took photos of her feet every day for a year. Otherwise known as “How to alienate strangers and confuse your friends”.

Working Through the Night

Through Too Much Work

 

But I can still say I’m so glad I’m doing this. Both last year’s project, and this year’s, are making me look around to catch moments of our day, and are giving me a record of the little things that make up our life. I have little glimpses into days that I otherwise might have forgotten.

Outback Dessert

Through Raspberry Cheesecake. Yum.

 

How do you remember? Do you keep a journal? A blog? Do you photograph? Do you keep it in your head and hope for the best?

I hope you’ll add your link below and share your favorite photos of the past week. Share a glimpse of your life with us.

 

This linkup works best if you also visit the others who have linked, and leave a comment for them telling them how you found them. We have a good group, and some very talented photographers. I hope you enjoy looking at each others photos as much as I do! A special thanks to those of you who keep coming back every week to share. I love seeing your links join the list!

Thanks also to The Boy and Me for hosting the original 365 linkup. I still love seeing everyone’s photos over there, and really appreciate the work that goes in to maintaining it every week.

    Hurrah, you’re back on track for the minute. I love the fire engines, they’re so vibrant. Nice sitting room, very clean and modern. Brian is a handsome man isn’t he? And the sauce on the plate looks yummy.

    You’re right, this project is important to help us remember our lives and all those moments that we’d otherwise forget. Regardless of whether you got looks for freaky photos last year or not, I loved the project.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

      Yes, Brian is hot. He thinks I’m crazy for thinking so, but just look at him! :)
      So glad to be back online, and a bit nervous that our move to the new place will leave me without internet again for a little while. Fingers crossed!

      It is a pretty nice view! There are mountains in the distance behind all the buildings, and I’m looking forward to doing some yoga out there once I move the table back inside. :)

      Mine too. Every once in a while I go back to my old blog to browse, and I’m so glad I took those photos and wrote all of those experiences down!
