Each time this post comes around I am more and more astounded about the speed of time. When you're a kid it's just something you never seem to notice. Christmas took forever to arrive, while the summer holidays seemed to drag on endlessly, with nothing but sunshine on the horizon. The first time I ever noticed this myself was when I was at university. The dates between assignments being set, and holidays coming up, always approached with thundering speed, and there never seemed to be enough time to get anything done. Now, it's like time simply passes me by and before I know it, another month of this year's 365 Project is done!
Does anyone else experience this?
Having said that it's great to be able to tick off another month and looking back through the months I've already completed I'm very happy with how this year's project is going. I feel like I'm starting to carve out a small niche for myself in what I like to take photos of, as opposed to the first time I did this when I was just taking photos of anything and everything. There's a lot of nature in these photos, but I'm really having fun with it this year, as well as experimenting a bit more, like I did with my refracting sunset shots I shared on Wednesday, where one of those did end up going into my 365 for September.
So, without further ado, here are my five favourite photos of September.
1. Sweet Peas
Mum's sweet peas finally flowered towards the end of August but I didn't get any photo of them until the beginning of September! I love the different colours and their delicate petals, and the scent they create is just lovely! Definitely one of my favourite flowers, and I hope they stick around for a little while longer before the chill arrives.
2. Bokeh Sunset
September sunsets have always proven to be some of the prettiest from my past photos and this one was no exception! I loved the bokeh effect from the lens flare on my camera too.
3. Opalite Shine
Whilst taking photos for my gemstone collection post I was playing around with lighting and on holding up my opalite to the window I got some impressive colours bouncing off it!
4. First Brush
I've been painting a lot recently and when I sat down on the night I took this I really liked the contrast between the stark white of the canvas and the first slick of black paint, so this photo had to feature in my project, and it's been a surprise favourite for me.
5. Sunny Fells
Sunshine in the fells along Newlands Pass. This photo speaks for itself really. It was a gorgeous day and I wish I could freeze moments like these.
As always if you want to follow my Project 365 progress you can do so by clicking this link, and let me know how you're finding the challenge if you're still keeping up with it so far.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend ahead of you!
