I am very excited to be taking part in another blog circle with a group of wonderful photographers. We will be participating in a monthly challenge and blogging it here on the second of each month. This month’s challenge is closeup portraiture.
Due to my slight photography hiatus, I had to dig this one up from the archives. I just love my little one’s eyelashes!
Please continue through this blog circle to see some beautiful work from my co-participants, beginning with Angie. Then be sure to check out the rest of this wonderful circle.

It’s very difficult for me to write this post without feeling like a complete failure. When this year started, I had very high hopes for my project 365. I was armed with my brand new camera, an intense feeling of inspiration, and couldn’t wait to get started. Then, just 18 days into it, my project came to a screeching halt. I guess I should more appropriately say that my life came to a screeching halt.
I’m in no position to give details on exactly what happened, however, I can say it’s something that has impacted my life and changed it in both good and bad ways. Initially, it was a shock, but something that has turned into a positive, and will continue to be positive for both me and my family. In the midst of it all, photography was put on the back burner and I admit, I’m still searching to find my photo mojo (I know it’s down there, inside of me somewhere.)
In the meantime, I’ve decided to put my project 365 on hiatus and continue on with a project 52.
This boy is serious about his tricycle.
Some personal issues took me away from my project last week, so I’m filling in with some old shots. When I started this project, I told myself I was going to allow flexibility in the cases where life got in the way. The good news is that I’m ready to get back on track!
He LOVES Thomas the Train. But then again, what 2-year-old doesn’t?
Shot at ISO 20,000. Definitely embracing the grain here.
