operation distraction (code name peacock feather), part 1

well, we all knew it was coming, and after months of planning, projects, and generally running around, we are down to the last week before i am officially a “single” housewife for 6.5 months.  while generally speaking it’s going to be fine, there will definitely be times when i want to pull my hair out and scream…so in an attempt to reduce the frequency of those days, i’ve created peacock feather.  a multi-tiered, 6-month program of equal parts creativity, health, and education.  remember how once you got into the groove of school, the semesters seemed to fly by??  yeah, kinda like that.

part one of peacock feather builds skills in photography, forces me to use all the equipment that i already have (plus validates a purchase i’m planning to make, hee hee), and also gets me out of the house, which will be huge during the winter.  i’ve selected 6 different photography techniques that i want to try / learn, and each month i’ll focus on one.  this includes doing a bit of pre-work by researching techniques and camera settings, but then also spending a few days in different locations testing out the techniques.

here are the monthly assignments, feel free to participate!

month technique
