We had a quiet NYE tonight, just family. And I made it home with 45 minutes to spare. We spent the day painting two feature walls at my home and we’re all quite exhausted. We have some more painting to do tomorrow. These are the things I like to do when I’m on holidays. People expect me to use my frequent flyer points to go somewhere on my vacation time, but I spend so much time away during the year, that it’s nice to stay home and just BE.
I wanted to round out the year with a couple more photos for Lucile’s Rehab Clinic. I started out this blog with a plan to share my travel antics, being someone who travels-for-work, but it has become a blog focussed more on my photography. So for Justine’s Eclectic Corner #3 – Resolutions, I’m going to make them blogging-related. I want to try out a new theme, I will join blogging 101 when it starts next week, and I want to focus on enhancing my photography skills, try some new techniques. I’m in love with this little hobby of mine and I’m so happy to have found so many other people who are just as keen.
These photos are some that I haven’t shown before and some are just for fun. These first two are from my two favourite trips of the year, Queenstown in New Zealand and Cambridge in the UK. The details for each shot are shown in the captions. I’ll be going back to both places in 2015. The Queenstown photo I love because I’m taking a photo from the OTHER side of the clouds for once. What a beautiful spot, high up, with cool, clear air – the first time I really saw snow and played about in it. Gorgeous. The second one is a field in Cambridge – I don’t really know if this is a good photo, I just really like it – I like the sunflare, I like the colour, I like the warmth – it was a lovely evening, the weather was amazing and I really felt like I was in my element. I had a ball on this trip.
These last two photos show you my favourite people – the photos were taken at my birthday party this year, we had a fantastic night of cocktails, singing and dancing, although I’m not sure if my neighbourhood appreciated the “singing” LOL. Anyway, I love these three, I would be lost without them.
See you next year! a very Happy New Year to you all xox.
PS – A massive shoutout to Lucile for organising the Rehab Clinic, it’s been a blast seeing the wonderfully creative and talented shots that people have submitted. If you haven’t already, please visit and check it out.
