Hi, Happy to meet you. I'm glad you stopped by.

I'm here to share my Fishk:365 photos with you.
It's a photo each day in 2012.
They won't all be wonderful works of art, but I hope to try new things, learn new techniques, and have fun being creative with my photography.

PLUS, if you act right now, I throw in a BONUS photo on February 29. Thats 366 photos for the same low price.

Sad to say, but my
365 project is now on hold…
Just too busy with the re-siding project to 
do a good, creative photo each day.
I’ll pick it back up whe I have time
to do it right.
Until then I’ll do frequent updates on the
siding project on my flickr stream.

Day 182 
Hit 105 today, way hot! Worked on the siding from 7 am until 1 then just had to come in. Sun worked its way around to the wall we were working on and that was it…
 So for today’s photo - something COLD. Ice cube from the freezer. Almost interesting. Certainly cold. Cold is good enough today.

181-365  Shooting the moon on Flickr.Shooting the moon
Day 181 
Shooting the moon on a hot, hazy evening. The moon was suprising clear tonight. I could see wavy distortion when focusing, but the picture is pretty sharp. I like the out of focus tree branches framing the moon. I have to admit getting a shot each day is getting tougher. But I’ll recycle some of my favorites, like shooting the moon.

Day 179 
Love the color of these flowers. This little guy grows in a hanging basket on my deck. Nice splash of color! They’ll be baking this weekend. Calling for 105 Saturday and Sunday. Will I be sitting on the deck sipping a cold drink, or climbing a ladder hanging siding? Should probably hang out with my little pink and green friends.

176/365 Red White and no View on Flickr.
Red White and no View Day 176  This has bugged me for a while now, so it might as well be my picture of the day. Plus I guess I should call the Town of Cary to report it. The median plantings sure are pretty, but they obsturct the view of cars coming down Harrison Avenue. Making a left turn out of my street is dangerous. I sometimes go right and make a U turn.  It wouldn’t be too bad if cars didn’t speed down Harrison, but they do. And the town knows it, that is why about twice a year there are police officers with Radar right across the street from where I took this picture. I’m going to request the clump on the end be removed, and the lower red bushes trimmed lower, and the trees with white blossoms trimmed higher. Then cars coming down the road will be visible. Please wish me luck!

A face only a Mother could love Day 173  How is this for a pretty boy? A face only a Mother could love - not my Moms, or any moms I know. But maybe his Mom. I tried to ID this guy, but nothing I could find was quite right.  Bugs and Macro photography seem to go together nicely, but I’m thinking some of my 365 viewers are wishing I would move on from the spiders, beetles and worms. Am I right?

Leave a few for me? Day 170  Back to the pear tree. Last visited the pear tree on Day 156 - June 4th. On that day I wrote about how the squirrels chew up the fruit to get to the seeds before they ripen. They are going at it now! Here is one of the little guys today. Squirrelie sat right there and ate while I clicked away.  I don’t think I’ll get any pears this year. But this is the payback I get for keeping them off my bird feeders. Good trade I think. I know the chickadees think so.
