By The Hour

Happy 2009 everyone!
Niotillfem has a lovely feature on her blog where once in awhile she will post pictures from every hour of her day. For the last day of 2008 I persevered to take a picture from every hour of my uneventful day. I am also introducing my Christmas present from my parents, my new camera.

  1. Funny I've been thinking about doing this but in film - 3 12hr days would fit perfectly onto a 36 roll film.

    Yours is a really nice series. I like your doodles in your notebook.

  18. I love this post! I may have to give a try sometime except for my fear that a couple of hours of it will be pictures of food and me eating the food ;) Hahaha. Your new camera is fantastic. What type of Canon is that? The images come up so sharp and clear.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thats a really cool idea. I might have to try it one day when I am not working and before I go back to uni.

    ReplyDelete
  20. OMG LADY! YOU GOT THE CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IS it the same as mine?

    I hope you have a fantastic 2009 with that canon. you two are made to be together.

  54. What an interesting idea! I must try this soon. Those bowling shoes does look good! I can never bowl well though :(

    ReplyDelete
  55. Happy 2009 to you too! :)
    This is a great idea! I miss taking photos randomly throughout the day. My digital camera no longer works and I have to sneak my dad's from time to time until I can afford a new one. Sigh. Your new Canon is a beauty!
    Also, I noticed the pretty little ring you are wearing in your photos. I bought my sister the same one in a small glass shop in Venice, Italy. The one I bought for myself has a clear round bead (where yours is square) and a blue bead at the bottom :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. You've got such a fab camera:D:D AND you've been using it well! Love this post! It's so fresh!

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Heidi,
    The cardigan is Banana Republic. It's also about three years old now. Forever 21 has some similar ones though.
    @Anonymous,
    Maybe in the future...I do have a tag "doodles;" so there's a couple of old posts with my drawings floating around.
