Project 52 - Week... I have no idea.

I feel like I've blinked and this last month has disappeared. Between having Gastro 3 times in 4 weeks (Yes, I know), Oliver starting solids, a holiday to Dunsborough, realising Gracie's birthday is less than a month away, realising Easter is less than a month away, realising Gracie's birthday is on Easter, having only one car, having no car, starting rehearsals for Hairspray and preparing for Oliver's Dedication tomorrow, I have seriously neglected my Project 52. I have had it in my mind as every week has gone by and every week I neglected to take a photo. Just sheer ran out of time. I have tried my hardest not to beat myself up over it and despite an extremely hectic and somewhat stressful week this week, I did manage to pull together a couple of photos and catch up a little.

Week 7 - Symmetry
This particular theme I found quite challenging to execute. I had all these ideas in my head but due to a number of factors mentioned above, was just not able to make it happen. However when my little cousin Eric came round for a play with Gracie one afternoon this week, I noticed the symmetry in this cute moment, where the two of them were sharing afternoon tea.

Week 9 - Glass
What kid doesn't like to squash their face up against a plain of glass and make fish faces?

Week 10 - Motion
This last week's theme, capturing motion is something I haven't done a lot of. I found it quite challenging but fun too. I started with Gracie's bus toy. Rolling it along the ground whilst playing with different settings to achieve different effects.

I wasn't entirely happy with it so I had another go this time with Gracie's musical twirling bees. I must practice this more and with much more interesting subjects.

When I put all these photos together, I realised they are all inside my house and surround Gracie and her toys. But this is pretty much a good picture of my life these past few weeks. And so my pictures reflect where I've been and what I've been doing. Making cubby houses and having tea parties under the kitchen table.
