  • Project 52 2013-14

    Soooooo I could no longer produce the dedication and time for a photo a day, upload, write a blurb, upload to flickr then to forum therefore now I am doing a photo a week. A bit more motivation to do a photo on the weekend. I will still document my life with photos on my phone but just not dedicate it to the internet which can be time consuming.

    Here is my first few weeks.

    Week 1 - 1cm grasshopper. I think I overdid the contrast etc but still .. it is what it is.

    Week 2 - Rainbow amongst the clouds. Missed out on a full one.

    Week 3 - Green Ant stuck in the juice of the mango from the tree out the back. Have two good photos of it. The second one could be Green Ant walking on the moon.

    Funnily enough, here is yet another grasshopper .. I took a photo of two different ones this arvo and this is my fave. I was holding the leaf in one hand and my 7D in the other .. I'm sooo happy with how it turned out.

      Week 7 - Eve and I went to Yorkeys Knob to the playground next to the beach and Eve loves loves loves the monkey bars so these are her expressions while attempting to complete the course.

        Week 4 & 6 are great macros Anna. Looking forward to keeping up with your family's life through your challenge again this year. Can understand not having the time to do the 365. How's the job searching going?

        Week 8. I went to Trinity Beach (just 10min drive up the road-ish) and did a fair bit of walking from one end to the other. Beautiful area for locals and tourists.

          This project is off to a good start Anna. Good move to drop back from daily to weekly.

            Thnx Mick for popping by. Yes was a good move to do weekly. Less pressure that's for sure.

            Here is week 9. A combination of Eve in the rain, the clouds around the McCalister Range behind where we live, Onion is one of six pups dropped off at YAPS on Thursday. All so very very loving and wanting cuddles. They were so scared when they came in so I helped out with drying them after their bath .. but 4 days on they are much more confident. Love their personalities.
            Bromeliad flower and I googled and it's a Billbergia.

              Lovely beach scene. Really sad that people can dump animals like that. Hope you're getting lots of lovely rain but stay safe from the wind up there.

                I am trying to keep up with the Proj 52 lol .. It's hard not to want to include many photos .. to document our existence and memories lol.

                *Kids first day of school for 2014. Kalen yr12, Eve yr 2 and Jess yr 10.
                *A gloomy evening.
                *Matilda with glasses on a few weeks after being clipped.
                *Wilson was missing for 34 hours !! I think he was locked up somewhere else he would be home due to hungry belly.

                week 10 2013-14 by ladymilli's stuff, on Flickr


                *Mia the beautiful natured, cuddly, boistrous Bull Arab X. I adore her
                *me a bit sweaty after exercise
                *my new Ascics and they are womens shoe too and I cannot remember the time I have had a womens shoe fit me .. these are US 12.
                * The puppies of YAPS, Dozer, Diesel, Moe, Lleyton.
                * Eve and another tooth came out.


                week 11 2013-14 by ladymilli's stuff, on Flickr

                A beautiful blue sky, makes a change from the cloudy weather.
                *Hudson, one of the smoochy social kittens at YAPS.
                *Hero, total smoochy boy. Stop patting and he cries for more.
                *Eve's hair.
                *Eve went to the shops with her siblings for her dads b'day pressie and came home with a rose for me <3.
                *Opal another social kitty.
                *Ollie the tabby kitty, he too is a social boy. These guys stand out significantly because they all come up to you for affection where as previous kittens don't.

                *Jason out did himself and for the first time in 21yrs he got me something for V Day. (his bday is Vday so overshadows).

                  Haven't seen blue sky for over a month here!

                  Another good series Anna. Sad to see all those cute puppies locked up, hope they can find good homes.

                    Various flowers/bromeliads in our backyard.. which isn't great when there are outbreaks of Dengue Fever 100m away from our house (so the Cairns Regional Council dudes told me). Things like Bromeliads and any water that is laying in containers or palm fronds etc can be ideal plays for the Dengue mozzie to breed.

                    week 13 23-2-14 by ladymilli's stuff, on Flickr


                    Handome YAPS dog Mr Big (Bull Arab). He was my fave boy (adopted this weekend). He loves to give bear hugs .. part of his charm lol.

                    Jasons helicopter thing novelty of the moment.
                    Ladybird and ginger in our backyard.

                    Mojo and Charles, YAPS dogs now both rehomed enjoying some paddling during their walk.
                    Jason at the sink .. not a vision I often see.
                    Eve having her teeth filled at the community centre. First time !!
                    Weather was gloomy but there was a faint rainbow in the distance beginning to form. Didn't turn out in the photo though.

                        Those cars parked alongside the road.. there's something that works well in that image!

                        A very ordinary scene that's nicely balanced and makes me want to look deeper into it.

                        Well done in documenting the daily doings!
                        It's the little things!

                          Nice to catch up with your life again Anna. One of our dogs used to dig up all the bromeliads - never any other plant. Tried replanting them and spraying them with citronella but out they'd come again. Maybe he was just trying to protect us from mosquito borne diseases.

                            Didn't realise I hadn't uploaded for a few weeks .. must have been when the forum was playing silly buggers.
                            Week 17 .. I know I've got the wrong date on the image .. doh !

                            Eve came with me to YAPS and she got to hold little tiny 5 wk old Panda. She was the runt and being fostered out to help her grow into a stronger kitty. She was rehomed just a few days ago.
                            I learnt how to do fishtail braid .. awesome so did one on Eve's hair. Love youtube for teaching stuff lol.
                            Kalen was involved with the Jazz Academy at school playing his bass guitar and they had a performance evening at the local uni JCU.

                            week 18 30-3-14 by ladymilli&#x27;s stuff, on Flickr

                            week 19
                            Hairy Maclary author Dame Lynley Dodd visited Cairns Regional Gallery and Friends of YAPS fundraising group organised a dog walk along the Esplanade. We had a good turn out. Matilda was pretty much stuffed after walking a few K's to the turn around point and we dawdled back with three rest stops. You see Matilda having a rest at the turn around point.

                            Crackers a beautiful little medium haired boy who was looking for a home for a few months but in the past week now has been rehomed.. awesome. I was helping him become a lap cat by visiting him each day after dog walking.
                            week 19 6-4-14 by ladymilli&#x27;s stuff, on Flickr

                            week 20
                            Cyclone Ita we fostered three 5 week old kittens Peaches (grey), Ricardo (ginger) and Violet (dark torti) .. they were awesome little kittens and only had them for 3 nights and then I took them back. Could have kept them for longer but with school holidays, I didn't want to leave the kitties at home with the teens / & Eve without adult supervision .. Although I trust the kids accidents happen and I would have felt bad !
                            week 20 13-4-14 by ladymilli&#x27;s stuff, on Flickr

                            Easter 2014 and the egg hunt out the back. Teens being difficult and not happy me taking photos as usual.

                                      See you are training Eve in the finer arts of photography as well. Nice set of pics Anna. Is Kalen hoping to join the navy when he finishes school? He'd at least have a good idea of what it involves having grown up in a service family.

                                        Yeh Gabby, he's wanting to join but not for another year or so. He really has to buck up his attitude and laziness, lack of enthusiasm and drive to succeed. Basically he has to mature up lol.

                                        Anyways here is my next lot.

                                          Nice series. We're currently looking at caravans, hoping to become geriatric gypsies, way too many choices. Poor Valentino looks so sad. Re Kalen, he's a teenage male lol. Don't worry they mostly mature EVENTUALLY. How's work going Anna?

                                            The caravan my fatherinlaw found on Gum Tree and the family that sold it were lovely ... aswell as the Outlander a few weeks previously, once again from Gum Tree. They sold their property in Cawarral so will do the caravan thing next year I believe.
                                            Yes Valentino does look sad but he is a stubborn lad .. when I have walked him I go where he wants because he stands his ground and being a big lad is strong but has such a squishy personality and loves affection and gets a bit floosy with the girl dogs lol. .. ie gets low to the grown on his front legs with bum in the air with a playful pose ...very cute. His eyes are improving and last I saw on the weekend, I could see his brown pupil !!

                                            Work is going well ... getting better pay this fortnight as I've had more 3 hour cleans to do for new clients but next fortnight will be much less as there are no new clients and cleans will be 1.5hours. Nice clients, can't complain. I find the variation in cleaning clothes, mops and sprays amusing. I don't like cleaning mirrors or glass shower doors unless I have an Enjo type microfibre cloth lol ...very picky but they are good cloths and with some elbow grease, a mirror comes up good with no smears but then I guess it depends how the light hits the mirror lol.

                                              Not sure I'd be brave enough to buy one on gum tree, guess you can be lucky or unlucky. Hope your hours pick up.
