The Golden Hour

For the second, or should I say third part of this tech task, I decided to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone and complete some of the daily create tasks. I doubted myself a little at first, but soon realized that not everyone who completes the tasks are professionals at what they are being asked to do. It is more about having fun and interacting with different types of technology.

I found the first one really easily, it was the daily create for the day that I visited the web site. The task was to "capture a photo in the golden hour - first hour past sunrise or last hour before sunset." I have always really enjoyed taking photos, and am finding that the older I get I am becoming more passionate about it. I ended up uploading two photos for this daily create. The first photo I took a couple of days ago while out for my evening run around Wascana Lake.
I decided to upload a second image because it is one of my favourite photos that I have taken. I stumbled upon it while searching through the photos on my computer to meet the minimum upload of 5 public photos on flickr to have your photos show up in searches. (This was my attempt to have my photos actually show up on the daily create page). It was taken while I was on vacation with my family in Kapalua, Maui in 2012. You can see all of the photos I have uploaded to Flickr by clicking here.


For my second daily create I decided to tackle a writing task. I knew that this would be a challenge for me because I am not much of a writer. The task I chose to do was to google your favourite colour and write a 3 line poem about what pops up in the search window. Follow this link to read my poem about the colour pink.

Printing With Your Feet

For my last daily create I chose to do a drawing task, which once again is greatly out of my comfort zone. I am even less of a drawer than I am a writer. The task was "using your foot and a pen write our your name on a piece of paper." Here are my results.... pretty shakey!
