My grandmother's China Doll in a secretary in my foyer. Her dress is patterned after the dress my grandmother is wearing in the photograph of her in the picture.

The Basics

Here's the deal. In an effort to improve my non-existent photograpy skills, I decided to join/enter a challenge created by Chad Darnell called 12 OF 12. Here's a link to his site. The basic concept is to take 12 pictures on the 12th day of each month and post them. As posted on Chad's site, the rules are:


2) After you post your pictures onto a webpage of your choice (Livejournal, typepad, MySpace, Flickr, etc...) please post the TIME, LOCATION, and A SMALL COMMENT in the pic.

3) You own the rights to all of your pictures. The idea "12 of 12" is mine. While credit is not necessary, please don't credit someone else with the idea.

4) The original concept was at least one body part in the picture. That idea was slowly faded away. The important part is that it are 12 pics.

5) When referring to the project, please refer to it as "12 OF 12" - not "12 ON 12."

6) Once completed, please e-mail or post the PERMALINK of the post AND the city and state or city and country of WHERE THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN. (If you are on vacation, it's where the pics were taken.)

(The permalink is the link to the ENTRY of your page. If you just send me your website, I have to track it down. By listing the permalink, it helps for people to go back and view your previous 12 of 12 entries from previous months.)

ANYONE is welcome to join in, even if you've never done it before! I hope you will.


Come join the fun!
