Marking 10-10-10

Andrea from a peek inside the fishbowl posted the other day about her goal to commemorate 10-10-10 by capturing 10 photos -- one photo each hour for 10 hours -- today. I thought this was a great idea and have thrown my camera into the ring.

The rules I've set for myself are to take and post one photo for each hour (not necessarily ON the hour) for 10 hours today. I was out at Jack Pine this morning for a sunrise photo shoot, so I started off early. I'll be posting a photo for 6am, 7am, 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm, and will update this post throughout the day.

You can follow along with others who are participating by checking out Andrea's blog post, as well as this twitter hashtag or this flickr group.


6am - Sunrise, Jack Pine

7am - Sunrise, Jack Pine

8am - Cattails, Jack Pine

9am - my kitty, in his usual snoozing spot near my desk

10am - 10-10-10 at 10:10 heh, computer on the aforementioned desk

11am 111am 211am 3
11am - Smoothie, at home

12pm - Burning bush out front is still ... burning

1pm - Scarves and shawls, complete and in-progress

2pm - Basil on my windowsill is flowering!

And one more for my 10 in 10 ...

3pm - Sparkler

The End.

(I think this would have been so much easier using an iPhone or other smartphone. You could set an alarm for a minute to, or heck on the hour, and then snap! take the photo, upload it right away and post. Maybe for next year's 11-11-11 ... ;-)


  1. What a cool idea! But 6am on a Sunday/Holiday? Your hard core girl hahaha. I'll be checking in thru the day, so far love what I'm seeing ;-)

  2. LOL ... with the long w/e we've still got tomorrow to sleep in. :-)

    I do notice the day is flying by doing this photo-an-hour business. I've got three more to go though, so maybe things will slow down after that. ;-)

  3. LOVE the idea and glad you are doing it!!! The smoothie pics make my mouth water!!! ;-) Love all of the photos!! Happy 10-10-10!!! ;-)

  4. Love, love, love this, Candis! I followed along from about 8 am and enjoyed it very much. A brilliant collection of images!

  5. What a productive way to spend the day. And what a delightful way for the rest of to pass the time.

  6. Ah, I like the all Candis, good for you sticking it out the full 10 hours ;-) Really like the last 3 in particular.

  7. beautiful! loved them all so much!

  8. I love the concept. It's a very cool idea and you presented us with 10 fresh new beautiful photos to enjoy. Thank you.

  9. I loved this idea. And all of your photos are beautiful.

    I don't think you'd get the same effect with an iPhone, even if it made the timing easier for you :)

  10. I am completely taken by your knitting projects. That beautiful wool, and those tiny stitches as well as that pattern! I'd love to be able to knit like this. How do you remember the counting when you put it down, though?

  11. I simply love the 2nd and 3rd photos - they're simply out of this world!

  12. Thank you everyone!

    Kate -- I've made so many now that I don't even need the pattern, lol. The first one I made I had to restart a few times and meticulously note each stitch and use a counter ... amazing what the the brain can remember through routine.

    vedd -- it was a nice present for being up so early, that pink and orange sky. :-)

  13. Oh what a great idea! I loved seeing your day, and your knitting is so beautiful!

  14. Cool post! I have to say my dog or cat would probably be in most of my photos if I were home all day. They're like velcro!
