February Wrap-up

Posted in Notes with tags , on February 28, 2010 by AZSalsman

Well, February has come to a close . We have participated in Valentines. We celebrated the triumphs, victories and trials of the Olympic athletes. We have seen a month of cleaning up from the Haiti earthquake and experience another in Chile.

For me, I have completed a second month in my personal project.  I have managed to take SOME photograph every day and learn a few things in the process. Some pictures are more artistic, others  are more of a record of an event, others are more of an experiment – but all are taken by me.  Despite the heartbreaking lesson of an expensive repair after a dropped camera, the project continues.

I must admit that it does get difficult trying to find inspiration each day or to find a new perspective or work on a particular skill, especially during days one’s activity is travelling from home to work and back again or when the day’s tasks demand ever moment of the 24 hour time span.  In the end, however, I do find I find something “unseen” each day and hope that I captured in on camera forever.

As for this day, the day the Olympics ended, the day Canada ended with a hockey gold is a hard-fought game, the day Canada set a record for most golds and the USA for most total medals at a winter game…I say “Adieu” and best wishes in March – eh!

February 28, 2010It just felt soooo appropriate to take this photograph today…the day the 2010 Olympics close…the day Canadian men’s Hockey team brought home the gold…the day Canada set an Olympic record for most golds in a Winter Olympic.  It’s been fun.

I just felt this old grapefruit tree has a story to tell.  It age has seen many years and heard many stories.  If only it could speak.
