The last few months...

As I said in my previous post, I've set myself a little task this year. And like most people's New Year's Resolutions, mine has gone a tad askew. I haven't taken a photo every single day, but mostly I have. This is partly due to a hip injury that put most of March out the window, and a trip to Australia in April, that turned my daily routine on it's head. But now that I'm home, and in a new routine (with a proper job and everything ;) !) I can get back to doing nonsense like making collages of the months of the year.


You'll notice that there are not 31 pictures in this college, because I spent most of the month either sitting, lying down or at physio. Fun times. And proof that it doesn't matter how fit you are, or you think you are, you can still pull a muscle you never heard of, doing hardly anything out of the ordinary. 


Luckily, the zillion hour flight to Oz, mixed with the extreme heat and slow pace completely cured my hip (I don't know, but I'm going with it). I took LOADS of pictures, but this is a good recap of all the main bits.

February round-up

The shortest month of the year is over, and Spring's here visibly on the ground and the trees, if not so much in the air. I have been curtailed over the last few weeks, due to an injury, but I've been getting plenty of work done from my settee and desk. Two trips to the beach and some long overdue family time, as well as playing around with some techniques I haven't used in years, and a commission.

I set myself a little side project for the year, just for fun, as a way to document what I am doing, a sort of visual diary. There are large sections of 2015 that I draw a blank over, I am hoping this will help me remember what I have done.
So every day I will take at least one picture, preferably something that will sum up the day, and at the end of the month, I will compile them, like above, and post them here, and over on fb.
I'm hoping I will learn some things from doing this. Common themes, colours, patterns.
