366 Project, Week 9

2012-02-26 Hasegawa Family 035
(57/366) Riko’s new glove.
2012-02-27 Snow 001
(58/366) A fire hydrant that I often walk past and debate whether or not to take a picture.
2012-02-28 Snow 010
(59/366) The drive from one of my small schools to another. The clouds were doing a cool thing and I tried to capture it. I didn’t have much luck.
2012-02-29 Kids 048
(60/366) We decorated the third year classroom the night before graduation. One teacher decided we should use birds on the window – they gave a cool affect. I captured a small part of it, so I could get them against the sunset.
2012-03-01 Grad Enkai 034
(61/366) Graduation day party! The teachers always have an enkai (dinner party) after graduation. I ate shabu-shabu for the first time! This was the shabu-shabu sauce.
2012-03-02 Snow 010
(62/366) Driving to another one of my tiny schools. If you look below the bank and to the left, you can see the tents for ice fishing.
2012-03-03 Winter Meet 010
(63/366) Soba shop! We had a day in Furano for winter sports and we decided to have lunch at this soba shop. I think it’s the most delicious soba that I’ve eaten since being in Japan.

366 project, week 8

(50/366) Walking home from school, since I’m currently car-less. I liked the combination of sunset and train tracks.

(51/366) I hadn’t taken any pictures that day, so I decided to take my camera to choir. During our break, I shot the keys of the piano.

(52/366) Sitting on my couch after a busy day of cooking, I hadn’t taken any pictures. I looked at the stack of books on my shelf and liked the variety of textures their pages and the iphone-connector had.

(53/366) After coming home, I noticed how nice the melted snow flakes looked on my hat.

(54/366) One teacher must have been reading my mind because as I sat at my desk wishing for a snack, she brought snacks around.

(55/366) Baking day! A near-by friend organized a baking day at her community center. It was loads of fun and they had real ovens, so we could cook about 18 cookies at a time! As opposed to the usual 6 at a time in my moven (microwave-convection oven).

(56/366) Some friends invited me for dinner and I liked the top of her teapot.

366 project, week 7

(43/366) Hand and foot.

(44/366) The colors really drew my eye to this, so I decided to see if I could capture it. Also, I love the falling snow signs, because I can read them!

(45/366) Not the most exciting, but one of my elementary teachers challenged all 4 of us – 2 teachers, 1 fifth grader and 1 sixth grader – to create English Doraemon comics.

(46/366) How much help is your shovel if it’s buried in the snow?

From 366 Project - 2012

(47/366) The ski hill in town.

(48/366) I couldn’t stop the reflections in the glass from impeding my photo of the lights in Sapporo, so I gave up and decided to try to capture the teachers I was with in the shot too.

(49/366) Buckle up for safety!
