Hurricane Katrina

It's been almost a year since my project wrapped up last December.  I recently went to a friend's wedding in New Orleans and found an a really unique snow globe that I had to share.  It's a bit edgy, but I like that.  The store I stumbled upon was Artist's Market, which has some really great stuff.

Here are some other photos from my trip if you would like to check them out.

Globe Goddess: 365/365

It's only fitting that I complete my project with fellow snow globe enthusiast, Carol Brown. 

She has been collecting globes for years and she, too has dealt with the heartbreak of broken globes. Here, she is holding her favorite one.

Carol has even made some of her globes.  She also makes incredible cakes!  Hausfrau Cakes, a local home bakery here in Richmond, Virginia. 
Thank you, Carol for sharing your globes and home with me today!

My last post, feels bittersweet.  One year of snow globes, I did it! Thank you to all of my friends and family that supported this project, encouraging me, modeling for me, and giving me the gift of globes. Now let's all make something else!

Homemade Snow Globe Bokeh: 363/365

Richmond Photography Meetup is having a challenge this month to create your own bokeh. Using this tutorial, I cut out a snow globe image and experimented.

Next, I played with hearts.

This is the piece of paper I taped over my 50mm lens.

Facial Reflections: 362/365

I kind of look like Rudolph here:)
