A Month in Pictures

Hello friends, it's been awhile. :) I've had one of those months where blog posts will constantly pop into my brain but I lack the time and motivation to actually get them out. Today, I will break that horrible spell, and briefly update you on the last month of my life. :)

I've been wanting do start Project 365 (a challenge to take a photo every day for a year) since I joined Flickr years ago, but finally decided to start on January 1st. So, I will hopefully be taking a photo every day to document my third year in Japan! There have been some hiccups already (including a dysfunctional camera lens and a broken auto focus... grrr) but I've only missed two days and have made them up with extra weekend pictures. Works for me!

So, since January is over, I can now show you my month, in pictures. Click the link below each picture to read about what happened on that day, or why I took that photo.

  1. "month in pictures" is very interesting, ReBekha!!!

    The last one is from Chinese new year?! Do you celebrate it in Okinawa!?

  2. Yes! Some people celebrate Chinese New Year in Okinawa because of Okinawa's historical ties with China. Also, one of my closest friends is Chinese and her family is here visiting so we are having a Chinese New Year party tomorrow. It will be the second one I attend this year!

    Thank you for your compliment, Ochi!

  3. R, there's some really nice pictures in there - I especially like Jan. 30th. Very nice!

  4. Wow! Thank you so much, Dave! :D That's quite the compliment. :)
