What I have so far :) 365 project

This is fun! I actually look forward to tomorrow to see what I can take a photo of! Yay! I know I'll get worn out later on though. And there is no way I'll be taking my Canon 40D everywhere with me! But I have my P&S I can use too sometimes. (still need to read that manual, my pics come out really grainy sometimes) But here is what I have so far. I had taken the first two with "project 365" in my mind so I am counting those. I'll be posting most of them on my flickr. Smile Thought I would share these three though.

1. I had to take a picture of this because I am still not used to eating pudding out of a carton. (do they sell pudding in a carton in the usa? Lol ) It's a bit weird to me. I really wish they made pudding in small plastic cups kind of like Jello.

2. My cat Lily sleeping in a plastic bag. At first I thought it was a sweater but then I got a closer look. lol It was a bit dark so I couldn't see her very well.

3. And this is from today. We had a great dinner. Smile It has been awhile since I've made meatloaf and my kids absolutely loved it! But my daughter loved the mashed potatoes even more, and she used to hate mashed potatoes!

looks like you're off to a GREAT start! I can't wait to stalk this throughout the year. Smile

you've inspired me to commit to a project 52, which I plan to start in October on my 40th birthday.

HAVE FUN!

very cool! Love your start!!! That's what I try to do, capture a variety of things in a given week. We don't have pudding in a carton here ... and now I want you to send me a box. ha ha ha I'd send you the jello pudding cups, but they have to be refrigerated.

Great pics! Gwen, there are pudding cups that aren't refrigerated---they're at the end of the baking aisle at our Walmart...as opposed to the refrigerated ones that are over by the sour cream, dip, butter, etc. Smile

the refrigerated ones taste better (imho), but the others are pretty good too.

Does the boxed stuff come out in that rectangle shape? I don't think the pudding in a cup would hold it's shape. Blum 3

Just curious.

Best,

thanks gals! Smile I hope I can stick to this. It's going to be hard finding a thing to photograph each day but I'm going to have to think outside the box a bit I think.

Here's todays. I really like this one for some reason. It always rains here, well...it rains a lot! So this really means something to me. Smile

Oh and about the pudding, yes it comes out in a rectangle and you can cut it up into smaller rectangles just like the picture Blum 3 it's a bit weird but it doesn't taste too bad. It's more like the jello in the usa since that sorta sticks together but it's pudding. The thing is, they don't sell small boxes with the powder to make your own pudding at home. Only jello type stuff. Gelatin I think is what they call it. That stuff is also sold in a carton Blum 3

okay, we should arrange a trade. I can send you some of the cups (I forgot about the Hunt's brand, I was only thinking of Jell-o) and some boxes, and you can send me some of your pudding. Lol Is yours refrigerated?

I like the window rain shot!

no it does not need refrigeration Smile Very tempting! hehe I buy some boxes of jello pudding at a grocery store in Sweden (very bad selection, and 1 hour drive from here, we go shopping there every 1.5 months). I pick up generic fruit loops and lucky charms for $10 per box. The jello pudding boxes are about $5 per box lol Or something around there. It's crazy! I'll have to keep my eye out for other weird things sold here Smile

I think this is great Loida! I wish I can do this too, but I get so tired by the end of a working day.

yep! it is crazy huh? it's totally worth it though since I can't buy any sort of American cereal here. The only types of cereals sold at stores here is plain stuff like plain corn flakes, cheerios (honey nut cheerios, and the one with grains I think? I forget). The only sweet sugary cereal is chocolate cereal like nestle coco something cereal. lol No sweet cereals what so ever. Well, they are sweet but not sugary like fruit loops and lots of other american cereals. It's weird. Oh and I usually don't let it go to waste. Every last cereal bit is eaten Lol

It's so cool you're starting a 365!! I wish I had the commitment to do one.

You've done a great job capturing things and making them interesting! Are these going to be on your Flickr? I'm interested to follow you!

*Sweden*

and my groceries from today, minus a few Lol and that in the back is the generic cereal that costs me $8-10 a box. Yep! It's so worth it though! And Frosties I've only seen sold in the regular cereal section of the store (still expensive though!). All American food has their own little section. Smile We also bought 4 cans of Welch's grape soda...for about $1 per can. lol I still have some Dr. Pepper left over from awhile ago. Those sodas are not regularly sold here.

I think you are doing a great job at finding things to shoot! I love the window/rain photo- that's my fav! Great job! I had to giggle at Gwen for being so interested in the pudding!

Thanks!
I'm thinking the things I'm shooting are a bit odd but oh well...it's all about me and my life here. I am treating it kind of like a daily diary of my thoughts and just things going on in my life. Smile Thinking of starting up a blog just for it.
