Project 2 of 52 – House on Fire

This week our Clickin Moms assignment was to gather item(s) we would want to take with us if we had to leave our house indefinitely. One of the assumptions made was that all living creatures would make it out, so we were just directed to consider possessions. We were given 10 minutes.

I completed this project last year. At that time I spent a fair bit of time thinking about what I would want to “save” and ended up coming up with two clear categories of belongings: practical and sentimental. To find out more about what I included last year check out my post Project 52 – Week 2 – House on Fire.

This year I wanted to do something different. I am in the middle of potty training my two-year-old son Kane (and going a little crazy!) Here is what I would need to leave the house…

The bare minimum

But more realistically...all the pants he owns, a book to read and a monkey to watch him!

I like this shot because it feels a little ominous, which is how I am currently feeling about potty training. Don't even get me started on potty training and naptime!

These photos were all taken using my Nikon D700 with my 85mm 1.4 lens. I am attempting to shoot more in manual mode vs aperture priority mode this year so I didn’t do any colour correcting in Lightroom (other than enabling profile corrections and removing chromatic abberation for the lens I was using). I would appreciate any constructive criticism.

This is the shot I submitted to Clickin Moms. The settings for this shot were ISO 3200, f/2.8, 1/60 sec.

Next up in our blog circle is Justyna E. Butler.

  1. If I had to go through potty-training again, I’d be much more patient. I think my impatience made it difficult. I think the shot you posted on CM is nicely composed and has a good amount of depth of field.
