Project 365 #1 – Peeking

At Antonia’s suggestion, I’ve decided to give ‘Project 365‘ a go, despite missing the opportunity to start on the 1st of January. You might be familiar with the concept – take 1 photo every single day and share it. People tend to vary the rules a bit, so my rules are going to be:

  • No particular theme.
  • The photo must have been taken on the day.
  • Only one photo should be shared as part of the project each day, but I can share other photos via other means. This just forces me to pick ‘one’ photo.
  • I should try and write a description about when and where the photo was taken, and what I think of the composition, etc.
  • Optional: The photo must be published on the day. I might forget or not have time, so this isn’t too crucial.

The second rule will probably make it tricky, but I’ll give it a go! I’ve got 3 days of consecutive photos, so I’m going to start with them. Without further ado…

This is Rickon, one of our pet rats. He’s about 5 months old. Here he was playing around on our bed where we had set up some boxes and this plastic tunnel which used to be in their cage. You can just about see one of our other rats – Tyrion – behind him on the left.

I like that the eyes are in focus which is what I was aiming for. I would prefer to be a little closer so less of the tunnel was in shot.
