JULY: 31 in 31

I’ve done it. 1 year. 12 months. 365 days. An entire year of pictures through this little photography challenge.

I in no way credit this as the popular 365 photography project, where a photo is taken each day. Many of my photos were taken on the same day, and then I went days without a single click. However, through my own way, I have documented a entire year with photos. I’m feeling a little nostalgic about it all.

Here are the 31 pictures that make the complete collection.

July 3
1. Deoksugung Palace.

July 4
2. I can’t stop taking pictures of door hardware at the palaces and historic sites in Korea.

July 28
3. My tomato plant has become very fruitful!

4. I live for the change of seasons. Fall and winter are already calling my name.

6. I’ll never get tired of these beautifully painted roofs.

9. Two hours of traffic led me to this beautiful sunset.

July 12
10. We try to make sure our Lonely Planet books are never lonely.

July 9
11. This is a look of guilt. Winston is a thief. I was given a few stuffed animals to give to families in Jared’s company. I gave one to Winston and put the other two away. Within hours, Winston snuck in and had stolen all the stuffed animals. However, it’s really difficult to be upset with a pup that carries around a stuffed pony.

July 13
13. I think he looks slightly depressed.

July 14

July 15

July 7
26. Korean sunset.

31. One week left of summer, and then I head back to school. I am so excited to get back in the classroom! (Especially because of my awesome new lesson planner!)

And now? I’m still trying to decide how I want to continue this project, because I think I definitely will continue. I’ve learned so much and have become so much more confident through this challenge. I think I still have more to learn (and always will).

A special thanks to those of you who have been around for the entire project. I hope you enjoyed it!

See the other months:

    15 &16, the ribbon dancers, reminded me of the flag-men of Arezzo.
    We love seeing your work, and your view of the world! Thanks again for taking us along.

    I love all the pictures, but the one of guilty Winston is definitely my favorite. It’s amazing how animals act like children, especially with their expressions. You nailed that one on the head! Great job as always. And please don’t stop doing this. It makes me feel closer to you three! Love you!
