January 01 2012

"This year’s close is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us." a message from my mum on facebook today starts the year - and reminds me that life continues and we take our joys and love and tears and hopes and dreams into the new year with us.

To start the year, my beautiful daughter wrote a song for me and arrived to sing it - she lights up my life :-) so I will start the year with a photo of her.

Today's image word though is 'abandoned' so I will go back to an image I took just a couple of days ago at an old farm shed - abandoned by the children that used to use them, cricket bats and golf clubs are slowly rotting and rusting.


  1. Happy New Year! I look forward to following your 2012 picture journey! Welcome to the challenge!

  2. What an excellent photo for the theme Abandoned. Happy New Year!!


  3. Excellent abandoned image.
    Happy New Year! I can almost hear your daughter singing to you from the lovely portrait.

  4. thank you SO much everyone - I never expected that people would actually LOOK at my blog. I need to get into the groove a bit though and take time each day to post. I'm hoping it will get easier :-)
