By The Hour

Happy 2009 everyone!
Niotillfem has a lovely feature on her blog where once in awhile she will post pictures from every hour of her day. For the last day of 2008 I persevered to take a picture from every hour of my uneventful day. I am also introducing my Christmas present from my parents, my new camera.
9:00am Breakfast of homemade pumpkin bread and a green apple
10:00am Checking e-mail
11:00am Curled my hair
12:00 Outside it was raining
1:00 pm One of my favorite art books Reset
2:00pm My sister's favorite film "Empire of the Sun"
3:00pm Doodles from my notebook
4:00pm Library visit
5:00pm My sister sipping hot tea
6:00pm More sitting around
7:00pm Outside is dark
8:00pm Ornaments from our tree
9:00pm The chandelier looks pretty
10:00 pm Hot and stylish bowling shoes
11:00 pm Bowled a good game
12:00 Sparkling cider with the family

Funny I've been thinking about doing this but in film - 3 12hr days would fit perfectly onto a 36 roll film.

Yours is a really nice series. I like your doodles in your notebook.

What type of Canon camera is that?
I've been looking into getting a better camera and I'm not sure what kind to get.
Any suggestions?
Oh, and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I really like this feature. It's strangely fascinating to see someone's day broken down like this. I hope there are more of these to come!

Brittany Noel said...

What a great idea! Bowling looks like it was fun! I haven't gone in so long, but I love it.

Hot Bot said...

That's such a great idea for a post :)
Looks like you had a fun NYE. Happy '09!

ana b. said...

I love this post! I may have to give a try sometime except for my fear that a couple of hours of it will be pictures of food and me eating the food ;) Hahaha. Your new camera is fantastic. What type of Canon is that? The images come up so sharp and clear.

Kat said...

Thats a really cool idea. I might have to try it one day when I am not working and before I go back to uni.

fauxfauxreal said...

you're doodles are really good!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

OMG LADY! YOU GOT THE CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IS it the same as mine?
We are complete camera buddies!

I hope you have a fantastic 2009 with that canon. you two are made to be together.



(btw, seeing your canon, makes me feel as if I just got mine too! which i did, but not SO recently! Im living vicariously through you!)

Heidi said...

Such a lovely blog, only discovered it today. I was wondering if you could tell me where your leapord print cardigan is from, its gourgeous!

lisa said...

This is such a cool feature! I love your pictures, particularly the one of the library bookshelf. Full bookshelves always suggest endless possibility to me.

dearilou said...

Your new camera is so pretty. My family went bowling, too, but, for some reason, the bowling alley closed at 5pm, so we had to go early. Oh well. Looks like a nice day.

yiqin; said...

What an interesting idea! I must try this soon. Those bowling shoes does look good! I can never bowl well though :(

Emily said...

Happy 2009 to you too! :)
This is a great idea! I miss taking photos randomly throughout the day. My digital camera no longer works and I have to sneak my dad's from time to time until I can afford a new one. Sigh. Your new Canon is a beauty!
Also, I noticed the pretty little ring you are wearing in your photos. I bought my sister the same one in a small glass shop in Venice, Italy. The one I bought for myself has a clear round bead (where yours is square) and a blue bead at the bottom :)

penelope said...

You've got such a fab camera:D:D AND you've been using it well! Love this post! It's so fresh!

LOVE pumpkin bread myself:D:D

I love your photography!

Anonymous said...

That's some sweet doodles!!! Couldn't you do a post with some of your drawings?

The Clothes Horse said...

@Heidi,
The cardigan is Banana Republic. It's also about three years old now. Forever 21 has some similar ones though.
@Anonymous,
Maybe in the future...I do have a tag "doodles;" so there's a couple of old posts with my drawings floating around.

atelier said...

Hey, I was wondering more about the art book you have a little preview of here. I couldn't find it just on the title "Reset". Could you tell me more about the artist(s) or author(s)? Thanks!

Love this post. A wonderful compendium of the seemingly tiny moments that constitute the larger picture of our day. My favorite pictures have to the cider glasses and the delicious breakfast:)

You have inspired to me make this an annual personal project on 31st december.
