Day 365, 31 Dec 2017: Finally, New Years Eve...

Day 365: ...actually

And we've made it, day 365 out of 365. Thanks to you dear reader for making it this far. A photo (or three) was taken every day even if the write-up didn't make it for a day (or three). But the intent was always there. That intent was to perhaps experiment with a new camera or lens, look at the everyday in a different way, look at the everyday in the same way, the ordinariness of life. 

There were trips to Brisbane, Gold Coast, Chicago and Helsinki. Parks in and around Tokyo and surrounds, and a little further beyond. Light, dark, shade; birds, bees, flowers. Elections. Something everywhere, everyday. A little snippet to record the passing of each and every day. Another opportunity to sharpen photographic skills--lights, camera, action, composition...

Today was worthy of a start in the pool. Thirty-four degrees Celsius outside and with a pool downstairs, really, what else was there to do?

Pool, palms, Gold Coast

Light clouds

Shaping up

Spreading over

Rain drops on a pool surface

Rain and ripples

Then the clouds came over and in a classic end to the year, down came the rain, with thunder and lightning and really, that is what summer is all about. 

And as we countdown the minutes to midnight I know that my #project365 fellow snapper Susan will also be reaching the end of another year. We know we both pause and reflect and think about going another round.  For me, it will be number five...if I'm back tomorrow.

We'll see. 

Happy New Year and best wishes for 2018.
