{in the picture} December selfies

Well, this is the final installment of my self portrait journey!
48 selfies over 12 months.

Thanks to Christie for the inspiration.
It's been fun & interesting.
I'm so glad I did it. 

This month's theme is 'time to celebrate', so I've gone with the Christmas decoration thing :)

:: I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & I wish you a happy new year.

:: sparkles, snacks & bubbles at a friend's place
:: a sneaky self portraint amongst the nativity
:: an early morning trip to the fish markets
:: jetties & fishing boats
:: dipping strawberries in white chocolate is much trickier than it looks (or perhaps it's just me!)

A lovely weekend filled with family, friends & food - & more of the same over the next few days.

Wishing you a very lovely & peaceful Christmas.

lights

I was reading this post & though it was the perfect time of year to experiment with photographing lights. 
So this evening I wandered around the streets near where I live & found some lights.

On front fences.....

in shop windows....

......and just around and about.

 I changed the focus of this shot during a long exposure- I quite like the effect.

Merry Christmas!

bike riding & beautiful skies

It's been a strange week, with 2 of my 3 children away & the remaining child at school during the day. 
My work has ended for the year so I find myself with some time. 
My 2 goals have been to exercise every day & to get completely organised for Christmas.
 With my first goal in mind, I set out yesterday with my bike & camera & went for a long ride along the Parramatta river. 
( I still have a bit of work to do on my second goal)

The clouds were amazing, so I stopped at a few spots along the way...

12.12.12

I wanted to document the 12th day of the 12th month in 2012 in some way.
I opted for simple.....

12 photos from my phone taken throughout the day.

ten on ten

Joining in again with a bit of sunshine for December 'ten on ten'.
Ten photos over ten hours (more or less).
Seeking beauty in an ordinary day. 

I really love documenting my day in this way- 
a bit of Christmas, 
 Charlie off to a dirt bike camp, 
a bit of shopping & doing a few jobs,
a walk with the dog.

This is what the tenth looked like for me.
