Project 64: Periwinkle Sky at Clark Lake 09.30.11

Just a note - I am beyond honored that my photo of the Seattle skyline was chosen top 5 for I Clicked It Up a Notch - September. If you have been following along you know that I love Click it Up a Notch and highly respect Courtney for her skills and her willingness to share knowledge and advice. It really is an honor to be chosen. I would also love it if you would check out the other photos and vote for me if you feel so inclined. I always feel weird asking for votes so while I would love your vote, please choose your favorite. You can vote here. Now on to today's post...

I cannot believe it is October! It is a month into the school year and I am really getting to know and love my class. However, I have yet to figure out the elusive balance between giving my all to my work and giving my all to my life. One little thing I do is continue to take, edit and share pictures. It really is one of the things that do for me and it gives me such a sense of peace. As I mentioned, on Friday I left work and went to take pictures at Clark Lake Park. One of the things I was looking for was the color Periwinkle, which happens to be the color for Project 64. I found it in the sky after the sun at set over the lake. I had planned to edit it but I really like it SOOC so I think I am going to leave it that way except for a conversion from RAW to JPG. My goal for the rest of this school year is to continue to take pictures like this and enjoy moments where I don't stress about the 10 things I didn't get done or those students I want to do more for. I am hoping that in the end that will make me a better teacher and a better photographer. 

Thank you for reading!
