12 on 12: A Day in the Life: February 2018

This time around I thought I would give the old iPhone a whirl for my 12 on 12. The picture quality isn't what I hoped for (must be time for a new phone), but I am glad this project motivated me to document a typical day for us. 

Trying to sleep in.

12 on 12: A Day in the Life: December 2017

Adventure Time! We headed out to an area close to our town where we hadn't explored before. Here are 12 photos from the day:

Mojo loves going for rides with the family.

 

_JM02530_JM02530 Old growth junipers seem to burn with red within. 

 

_JM02535_JM02535

Every time I do laundry, there are rocks in the washer... every. time. 

 

_JM02599_JM02599 Taking in the sites as we drove down some quiet dirt roads. 

 

_JM02557_JM02557 As rock climbers we like rocks. A lot. So this adventure included some bush-wacking to get closer to this very interesting outcropping of rock.  

 

_JM02563_JM02563 Carl crawling through the rocks. We found secondary chippings and pottery pieces at the base of the cliff.

 

_JM02567_JM02567 As a lichen lover, I don't think I have ever seen this type of growth before. BTW, I just googled "lichen that looks like nipples" and got some interesting results... not what I was looking for. Maybe its a fungus? 

 

_JM02570_JM02570 I love this photo with O scrambling along the rock edge and Carl's big grin looking up at the rocks. Classic Carl. 

 

_JM02575_JM02575 Enjoying a view from the top -- All sorts of secret rock spots in this neck of the woods!

 

_JM02584_JM02584 As the day wound down we headed back to the truck, loaded up, and took the long way home. 

 

_JM02622_JM02622 Miles and miles of dirt roads and places to explore.

The area is made up of Wilderness designated sections, ranches, the random big fancy house, and national forest. 

 

_JM02638_JM02638 The long way home led us to these rascals who popped up on the road out of a culvert and surprised us!

They skirted up the steep hill and watched us go by. I was lucky to catch them with the fading light before they headed into the bushes. Good night javelina!

That's it for our day, just another day out exploring the countryside.

FAVE 5 for DECEMBER

 

Some personal picks for December: My guy.

 

I think my love of snow has rubbed off on them! They were as excited as I was for our first snow.

 

Cousin brothers: ninja firefighters.

 

He doesn't nap much anymore, so this is a rare sight. He is often a raging grump post-nap when it does happen.

 

358.365.2014358.365.2014

Santa sure does like cookies and milk. :)

 

364.365.2014.bw364.365.2014.bw We did it! 2014 is a wrap!

One more to send you into the New Year. Nothing like running out into the snow first thing in the morning in your PJ's!

2014 BY THE HOUR https://www.jillmcadoo.com/blog/2014/12/2014bythehour 2014 began with a new project involving over 30 other photographers scattered throughout the world, each taking a photo during a specific hour progressing through the year, month by month, from 7:00AM to 6:00PM. 

Looking back, some hours were more challenging than others to capture... probably because I prefer the more spontaneous approach to capturing my hours. I'm not one to plan and control every detail, but some days are better than others for photos. These feel very honest, very in the moment of that hour, and very much me. 

I am one lucky girl to be a part of THE HOURS community and "working" alongside so many talented photographers.  The best part is that I get to do it again next year! I'm looking forward to starting again at 7AM in January. Maybe a theme for next year? Black and white? All portraits? Landscapes? No theme? I'm still deciding. Obviously. :)

See you in 2015!

FAVE 5 for APRIL

 

092.365.2014092.365.2014 For my self-portrait project: It's hard to take a photo of yourself, and one that you like is even more rare. This one's a keeper in my book.

 

The dandelions don't have much of a chance this year to be wish puffs with two kids battling to send them twirling into the air. 

 

I love watching these two on the rocks. 

 

Poor girl was sick over the holiday weekend, but she sure is cute sleeping. 

 

It's 11am and we were rocking the backyard. 

 

093.365.2014093.365.2014 And this one too because I wish I had more unconventional family photos.

FAVE 5 for MARCH

March was fast and furious, and full of ups and downs.

060.365.2014060.365.2014 It was briefly cold and rainy after weeks of sunny moderate Arizona weather, and we reveled in the damp weather 
and O hunted worms with squeals of delight each time she spotted one.

 

This year the blossoms arrived extra early in the season; I hope they survive the freezing nights ahead.

 

Worker-man. He's made a diligent attempt to relocate all the dirt in the backyard.

 

Each night the kids have to say goodnight to the baby chicks. 

 

My mom's legendary bread. Too bad I can't eat it anymore. I'm GF.

FAVE 5 for JULY

182.365.2013

Donner Lake, Truckee CA: Can't you just feel the water cooling off your toes?

 

 

185.365.2013

Although our 4th was shadowed by the Yarnell Fire and the loss of so many lives, we were reminded to be grateful for so many things.

 

 

192.365.2013 After a rough couple of weeks, we all need a good laugh once in awhile.

 

 

198.365.2013 And to ignore the dishes to play outside.

 

 

205.365.2013 And find a little green patch while it lasts.

 

I wonder what sort of adventures Staci has been up to?

Print Sale to Benefit the Families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots https://www.jillmcadoo.com/blog/2013/7/Fundraiser-for-GMH My town suffered a loss that will likely be one for the history books. A lightning strike started a wildfire that ultimately killed 19 firefighters, almost the whole crew of our local Granite Mountain Hotshots, only one survived. These were young men in the community with families, children, and even weddings to plan and first babies to welcome.

As the community has rallied to support the people these men left behind, I wanted to look farther than the borders of the communities these men fought to protect, and gather support from people in other states and beyond. I ask all of you to help support these families, as I know each of us would be grateful for the support if we were in their position.

Myself and photographers from around North America have generously donated their work to be sold as prints; please purchase one of these beautiful prints and you'll be supporting these men and their loved ones. All proceeds will be donated to the Prescott Firefighter Charities, which states that all donations will go to the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

It's not everyday that you have the opportunity to hang one of these amazing artist's photos on your wall. Choose from different finishes and print sizes, as well as ready to hang Thin Wraps (http://www.smugmug.com/prints/thinwraps), and Metalprints (http://www.smugmug.com/prints/metalprints) made from aluminum.

157.365.2013 This photo was taken at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ. I was attending a conference and had a free evening. After spending all day in the artic air conditioning, I had to be outside despite the temps being around 100 degrees! The sun was setting fast, but I chased the light with some success. This was taken in the wildflower garden. The best part of the evening was a bit after the sun had set and I watched a family of Quail with tiny chicks find their way to a cactus and jump and scramble into the upper branches to roost for the night.

 

169.365.2013 I love birthday parties! I've lost family and friends and because of that I think it's important to celebrate people while they are still here. It's even more fun to celebrate kids because they get to soak up all of that love and attention. This is Joon, and she turned 2; I love her nickname, "Joon Bug."

 

174.365.2013 This one draws me in with the warmth of the reds and oranges and the light on the hair. The only thing better than my daughter's art is the stories she tells about them!

 

179.365.2013 We traveled to northern California for a wedding at the end of the month for a close friend. His bride put together all of these great details like these banners that were strung between the trees at the wedding site. It just feels like summer.

 

180.365.2013 All dressed up for the wedding, bow-tie and all. Obviously I'm biased, but my little guy is so handsome! Part of me wishes the pacifier was not in the picture, but that wouldn't have been an accurate portrayal of him that day. It was hot, he was tired, and that pacifier helped keep the peace during the ceremony!

Apple Blossoms: 365 Project https://www.jillmcadoo.com/blog/2013/4/apple-blossoms-365-project This is the third year in a row I'm working on a 365 Project. So what is a 365? The idea is that you take a photo every day for a year. It could be of anything, anyone, anywhere, as long as you take a photo each day. These are the real life moments that we often overlook, take for granted, or just don't take the time to record.

A photo to remember when my daughter was obsessed with pushing a cart around the neighborhood:

 

Or how the big dog sleeps under the little dining room table, hoping for a few unnoticed treats to fall on the floor.

 

And how the little guy's tenacity to get into the dishwasher seemed like it would never fade.

 

But each year I always keep a close eye on the apple trees. Every year the weather and critters challenge the possibility of harvesting apples. Some years its a late frost, others it hail, or not enough rain. Other times its the birds or squirrels wreaking havoc. We love being able to preserve our own applesauce, dehydrate apple chips, and make other sweet treats. The conditions seem to be right about every 3-5 years to get apples. So it's a big deal in our house when the blossoms survive, the apples grow and ripen without any assaults, and we get to pick our own apples.

 

The apple tree is our own backyard calendar of how we move through the seasons and a reminder of the circular nature of life. Each year it finds its way into my 365, marking the changing of seasons, and bookmarking each chapter in our lives.

First Blog Post! https://www.jillmcadoo.com/blog/2013/4/first-blog-post

This girl loves flowers and blossoms. From the time she could walk she insists on picking flowers and bringing them home to put in vases. She is an expert dandelion hunter. And in case you didn't know, "Dandelions smell like yellow unicorns."
