10 on 10: January

What is a 10 on 10?  For me, it is ten photographs taken on one day and posted on the tenth.  It really is that simple.   This year I am doing this project with a great group of photographers.  We will posting on the tenth of each month and link our blogs together to create a blog roll.  My goals with this project are to get better at telling stories, start to shot more with my digital camera, and capture more of my real life for the year.

Here in Southern California, we don’t get much rain.  And if it does rain, it only lasts an hour or two at a time.  This week we had a lot of rain and it lasted for days.  Because it doesn’t happen often, I loved the day filled with slowness and melancholy.  And naps… lots and lots of naps.










For more 10 on 10’s, please continue onto Jennifer’s blog and then click on through the blog roll.

    Love your choice to go with b&w for this Staci. Totally suits the mood. The rain in the birdbath is a favorite.
