Rebecca has been following the blog of one SouleMama for a while now, and recently pointed out to me a project she had been working on: 30 days of the everyday. Inspired by the idea of taking one photo each day of something from every day life, I’m going to give it a go for myself.
At first I had my doubts about doing such a project. After all, I have a fairly ordinary life. I go to work for eight hours a day and sit in the same blue-gray cubicle, and I’m not exactly encouraged to carry my camera around the building, much less take photos of things. At home, I’m mostly in the same little house each day, and we don’t travel all that much.
But then I realized that part of the reason to do a project like this is to encourage me to be creative, and to recognize and appreciate the things in my every day life that are interesting or beautiful. To push my creativity and to find different ways of looking at the same things.
I also hope that this project will inspire me to take more photos, and develop good habits of uploading and blogging them more frequently.
So to start off, here’s my photo for today.
For a variety of reasons, I had a craving for Thai food tonight, so I took the family out for dinner at Siam Delight. I had my usual Country Fried Rice (not an especially unique Thai dish, I know) and Beef Soup, and Rebecca had Mee Pad See Yue. Catherine nibbled at some rice and peas, but mostly kept us busy chasing her around the restaurant. 🙂 Here’s Rebecca enjoying her meal:
Later this evening, Rebecca and I huddled out in the cold to watch the lunar eclipse. I did my best to get some photos, but due to a combination of the cold and trying to use some unfamiliar settings on my camera, none of them came out particularly well. You can see the few decent photos from the eclipse.
