December Mosaic and 2012 Photo Projects

Flickr photoset is here if you'd like to see the photos full-sized.

At the beginning of the month, our temperatures were still in the 50s. Almost like the flipping of a switch on Winter Solstice, the temperatures dropped and the snow came. Fun vegetable shots this month -- "Bright Veggies" in my Buddha Bowl at Northstar, a grinning spud spotted at Kroger, and fresh Brussel Sprouts from the Winter Worthington Farmers Market before they were roasted for Christmas dinner.

Back in January, I gave myself a new focus for my photos:
I'm going to collect photos of numbers and letters (actual and representations). By the end of the year, I'll be able to make my own Alpha-Numeric picture book through the iPhoto store!
I collected about half of the alphabet and all of the numbers 1-13 except 9 and 10. I also discovered that our local Cord Camera is the way to go for all kinds of photography projects: support a local business and don't pay exorbitant shipping fees!

Here are the ABC and 123 projects so far:

  1. LOVE LOVE the photo numbers and letters. What a unique perspective for your photography. I happen to like #12 the best along with letter "w"
    can't wait to see the final project.

  2. Wonderful, Mary Lee. A class at my school did a Denver alphabet & sold it for lots at our annual auction. The photos like that are just terrific. I love your idea for a published book. Happy New Year!

  3. Lovely mosaic! I admire you for doing this so well month after month. I love the photo ABC book too. We did that at school with a kid's club. Let the kids loose around campus (it was in a rural setting with a lot of land) and gave them cameras. Kids have great eyes. So fun!

  4. I love the way your mind works, Mary Lee, weaving together creative ideas in such unusual ways. The mosaic is one of those creative ventures I look forward to so much...Happy New Year!
