keeping it simple

Oh golly.  Simple is hard.  I make everything too hard.  You know – the snowball effect.  I am a master at that!  I don’t know how Wilbur manages to deal with me and my avalanches!  They can get quite massive sometimes. Anyway – I am working on trying to keep things SIMPLE this year.  Last year I was working on PEACE.  Suffice to say – PEACE is a work in progress.  PEACE  and SIMPLE merge well together.

SO – 2010 is here.  Happy New Year.

I wish I had something amazingly profound to say – but no – I don’t.  Simply because I am tired!

The reason I am tired is awfully sweet – but apparently requires feeding aat night.  Why is that?  US grown ups don’t eat at night – so why should she?!

In the keeping it simple theme of things….. I am attempting (AGAIN) the P365 challenge.  Yes – it does involve taking a photo a day each day for a year.  How is that simple you may ask?  Well – I am not going to bust my  boiler and try and create some convoluted post every day, and spend hours editing images etc etc.  I will just use one of my little photo buddies – Fred Fuji, Zara Zumi, Pete Polaroid, Hetty Holga, Digital Diana (when she gets here), Izzy iPhone and Mini Diana (when she gets here).  VERY minimal processing – infact – none at all on the instant images, and my Camera on the digital images.  SIMPLE rules!  I’ll post ’em when I find the time!  Here’s a few from the first few days…

Because I can – I have had a change of plan………… see my next post!

Enough said – I think they all speak for themselves!

    Love the idea of keeping it simple. I am taking the photo a day challenge — but it also does not have to be perfect — and I will post them when I can!

    This is a FABULOUS idea Ky! I love it! Totally makes it simple. And funny as I think that’s Fran’s word too. Love the ‘braids undone’ shot lol. I’d like to say I’m up for the Photo A Day challenge … alas … I think I need to find something even simpler than that.
