Fresh start

One of the things that I knew I wanted to do here was start a new 365. For the most part, I enjoyed my first 365, and feel that I learned a lot from it. Logic was; we would be here, I was going to be taking pictures… so what better way to document all that we were going to see and do!? The thing is, I got here, and I could not take out my camera. Days went by with nary a photo shot.

This was a stressful move, and I know that has something to do with it. Who has time to take pretty pictures when they are trying to find food and furniture and their house and stop the lils from playing in traffic and worrying about all of the above and more. That wasn’t it. I wasn’t ready to go adventuring, and I had built this up in my mind as a way to capture our adventure. I didn’t envision a bunch of pictures of us hanging around the house while we wait for deliveries, or just starting to explore the places that are a really short walk from the house with lil legs, or playing in the back yard because I wasn’t comfortable enough to go much further with the lils. So I waited, and waited some more. Then I realized what an idiot I was and took out my camera. Everything that we are doing is part of this adventure.

I am changing things up this time; my 365, my rules. I aim to take pictures every day, and I’m going to try to be better about posting a picture every day, but they may not be taken on the day posted. All the shots will be taken in India, but there will be times that we are not in India, so I am going to use older pictures to fill those days. There will also be days where I get multiple shots I love, and days when I take crap. I’ll use the ones I love before the crap. Even if they aren’t great pictures, but tell a story. There will be many pictures of the lils, and of the flowers here. MANY.

Hope you enjoy, if you are into that. They will be posted to my flickr, and here is today’s shot, number six:
Laundry day
