Project 365: May Part II • RI Children's Photographer

So far I've completed five months of daily photos in my 2017 personal project.  One hundred fifty one days from January 1 to May 31.  It sounds easy to take one photo every day, doesn't it?  Much of the time it is, but sometimes it's not.  There are the days that the light isn't great, or the inspiration isn't there.  This time of year is a very busy one as a RI children's photographer (and that's a good thing!) but it sometimes leaves little time to think about what to take a photo of each day.  Fortunately, there's always the cat, who is at least somewhat cooperative some of the time.  This time of year is also full of beautiful plants and flowers blooming, which make for very pretty subjects, and they are quite cooperative.

The second half of May features quite a bit of the aforementioned cat and flowers.  There's also a small surprise animal visitor, some bubble blowing out in the yard (trust me, if life gets too stressful or busy, blow some bubbles...you'll feel better), and several trips to Narragansett beach.

Take a look below to see the photos.  Lionel is thinking he needs to become a celebrity cat.  If you agree, let me know in the comments!
