5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


On Monday I started a new photography project, The 100 Day Project. Of course I also only found the project on Monday, so I had to make a decision quickly about what my project was going to be. I thought about what I like to take photos of, narrowing it down as I went. Then I came up with it - paths. I love paths and now that the snow is gone I can actually see the path. Two days into the project, I realized that I hadn't narrowed it down quite far enough. While I love paths, what I am really drawn to are the leading lines. So...slight modification...the project is now officially established as 100 days of leading lines, or #100daysofleadinglines if you want to follow my project on Instagram.

Find No. 2


Last Friday I took my vintage binoculars I got last fall, out for a photo shoot. I love how this one turned out.

Find No. 3


The path I could have chosen for my 100 day project.

Find No. 4



Self-portrait of the week. I rarely do black and white work, but I thought the contrast in this one was quite lovely, so worth a try. I used the front facing camera on this and am pleased how it turned out, sometimes the quality is quite questionable. It is amazing what better eye contact you have when you look at the camera lens as opposed to the viewing screen. *Hint the camera lens is located ABOVE the viewing screen :) If you are curious about why I have fallen in love with self-portrait work come back here on Sunday to read the story.

Find No. 5


I found this amazing tree reflection in the water on Monday when I was out on a photo walk with a friend.


So many fun processing options with this shot as well. I may have had a little too much fun with that.

  6. I always look forward to your Friday Finds! I LOVE that first image! The low point of view, shallow depth of field, and those leading lines make for a terrific image.

  7. Really wonderful shots! Leading lines sounds like a great project that would work well with all your paths and so many other options too. I love the depth of field on your no. 1 find and the binoculars, the image has such a vintage feel. Great tip on taking selfies. :)

  8. Sarah, you have shot some fabulous photos. I really like the notion of a strong lines project, and having had that idea implanted in my brain at the start of your post, I, of course, found loads of strong lines in the photos that followed. I love the trees reflected in the water; that one is really beautiful. Good luck with your project: all the evidence points to it being a great success. All the best, Bonny
