I remembered the other day that at least once in the past I’ve created a blog post at this time of year showing a photo from each month as a sort of review. Although I haven’t made much time this year just for taking photographs I still had a lot on my phone and in my camera so I thought I’d share one from each month – most of which I haven’t shared before – to round off the year.
There’s also a little update at the end of this post so don’t miss that!
From midnight tonight (New Year’s Eve 2017) there’s going to be a big sale in my Etsy shop. Everything’s included apart from digital downloads, so the special deals I’m already offering on prints and cards will be discounted even further.
I won’t be replacing anything that sells out because I’m planning on creating some brand new products for my shop in 2018. You can bookmark your favourites before January 1st to make it easier to find them once the sale begins.
A couple of weeks ago me and my husband spent a week in Crete, which is the largest and southern-most of the Greek islands.
The village where we stayed was a few miles from the sea and extremely quiet, so more “Winding Down in Crete”
As I mentioned last week, I recently spent a week in Toledo, in Spain, a tiny medieval walled city 30 minutes by train from Madrid. The best way to see Toledo is on foot so good shoes are a must because the streets are cobbled and very hilly. And one of the more “Toledo”
Right now I’m in the middle of an online photography course, offered by my friend Joy. I’ve taken her Nature Photography course a few times but this is the first time I’ve signed up for her Art of Photography class.
I’m really enjoying being pushed to try new things with my photography, but also to get more “There’s More Than One Way to Make Art”
It wasn’t quite as cold outside as I would have liked today. My favourite winter days are chilly but sunny. Cold enough that you need to wrap up warm (preferably a bit frosty) but not so cold that you can’t bear walking around outside (not that it’s ever that cold here). Even so, I still went to a cafe and forced down a hot chocolate. It’s still winter after all.
