Archive for Project 366


I figured this project is not just supposed to be about gorgeous scenery and interesting pictures, it’s a way to show people the things I see every day.  The fixtures in my life as well as sunsets and views of the bay.  So I had my pill bottles huddle up as close as they could for a photo shoot.


Paul and I always visit the farmer’s market before church on Sundays. We thought it was funny that there was a French flag prominently displayed and no one had bothered to bring an American flag. That’s San Francisco for ya I guess. A little bit Europe, and sixty degrees and sunny in January.


Paul and I went to visit Coit Tower on Saturday.  Our first time in almost five years living in the city!  I knew this project would be good for us.

There is glass that surrounds the viewing level of the tower, but apparently visitors from all over the world have managed to slip coins from all over the world through the separations between the glass and the walls.  Unfortunately the side with the best view/light had the least diversity of coinage, but if you look at the full size image you can see that the big one in the center is not U.S. currency!


Home sick from work again so no ability to venture outdoors at all.  But I did finally take a decent picture of my engagement ring and I can’t believe how long it’s been since he proposed.  We will have been married five years (six if you count the private ceremony) this summer but we still act like goofy teenagers in love.


Not much happened today since I took a sick day off from work.  The leaves are changing color here, even though people will tell you they don’t.  They kinda do.  Taz stares pensively out the window.


I’m rarely in the office at sunset (and almost always there for the sunrise), but I decided to wait for Paul after my dentist appointment that afternoon and figured it would be the least self-conscious time for me to snap as many pictures of the view as possible.  Didn’t plan ahead though, so this was taken on my iPhone.


When I got home the sky was blue and strangely enough an almost-full moon was out above Coit Tower.  I couldn’t get anything even close to resembling a decent shot so I decided to play around with my macro lens and the flowers in the courtyard instead.

Christmas tree recycling time here in San Francisco means the city streets are lined with discarded Christmas trees.  Kind of a funny sight, don’t ya think?


Not sure how, but somehow managed to catch Taz mid-yawn.  This is just with natural morning light through the window.

We went down to the wharf as the fog began to burn off.

Taken in one of the many gift shops along the way…

Rounded the day off with a video chat with my two favorite people in Hong Kong!  Gotta love the ability to randomly accessorize in google hangout.


For Paul and I, 2011 snuck off under the cover of darkness while we slept.

It was sort of fitting really.

As years go, 2011 was a fairly uneventful one.  No significant life changes, good or bad, just…life.

The year…passed.  And now it’s gone.  And suddenly here we are at the beginning of another one.

I went back and read my “goals” for last year.  I fell unsurprisingly short on most fronts.  And achieved a few.

I thought about making some for 2012 but the truth is, I just don’t have it in me.  Not right now.

So for now, I am just trying to stick with this Project 366 thing.  I can’t even remember the last time I stuck with anything for 366 whole days in a row.



For Day 1, a bowl of clam chowder Paul made (Hog Island style).  The picture is whatever (out of focus and underexposed), but the chowder was certainly the most memorable part of New Year’s Day.
