I need to replace the tripod I broke 2 years ago. I don’t know how I have gone this long without one…I am tiring of balancing my camera on my car, or my knee, or a gate post to get a successful night shot, and I am becoming more and more interested in night photography as this project continues. I think I will buy myself a tripod for my birthday!

4 of my 7 daily sky photos this past week were taken from Brittlebank Park, a green space in downtown Charleston that overlooks the Ashley River. Check out the photos…maybe I should tweak the rules, again, and shoot solely at Brittlebank! The sky was mesmerizing.

I used my Coolpix for every photo this week. Good because it was so accessible and easy, but I don’t want to get completely comfortable with using a point and shoot for every photo during this 2nd attempt! By nature, the photos become less thoughtful. So, while it was a fun, easy week of sky shooting, next week I am going to make a true effort to only use my Coolpix when I really can’t pull out my dSLR. Enjoy! And check out the Three65 tab to see all my progress!
After a failed attempt last year, I am trying once more! This time I have tweaked my rules, again, and I am going to focus one subject I am constantly amazed by…the sky. I have been fascinated with it, and photographing it for years, but since moving to Charleston, I have been floored by the diversity the Low country sky offers. It is so vast against Charleston’s flat topography. Every sunset is different. Clouds change with the blink of an eye.
So here goes my 2nd attempt of Project three65. This time I will upload on Mondays. Wish.Me.Luck. Pardon my first 2 car photos…I was traveling at the beginning of the year!
A visual look at my first year in the Low Country…its been great Charleston!
The Setting: 100 acres of pluff mud and marsh grass about 30 minutes outside of downtown Charleston.
The Plot: 5 friends plan to go camping with two mutts and a German Short Haired Pointer. At the last minute, one of the friends decides to dog sit and bring a Golden Retriever, and another friend brings his father’s Chocolate Lab and junkyard dog, along with his sister’s Labra Doodle (did I spell that right? Is that even a real dog? Yes, yes it is.) All are in for a fun filled night of incessant barking. Who knew a dog pack 7 strong would stay up ALL night on constant alert for raccoons and abominable marshmen?
Here are some of my favorite action shots from the trip
Something magical happens when daylight savings time ends in Charleston. The sky can shift from baby blue to grapefruit pink to blood orange in a matter of seconds. I’ve never seen such a diverse and ever changing skyscape. On this evening, I was lucky enough to capture some of the beauty.
So the next time I complain about shorter days, I need to remember to look up. And give thanks.
So I really fell off this wagon. I have missed the past 4 weeks. 4 WEEKS! 1 MONTH. Unacceptable! Anyway, lets just pretend the month of September didn’t exist and that I’m on track with this project!
Goal for the next month: Take more photos of people. I really need to work on my portraiture. So there, I’ve told everyone and now you can hold me accountable next week if my three65 post shows up human beingless.
Happy Project 365! Happy Foto Friday! And happy deliciously beautiful Fall weekend in Charleston!
