CDP Theme..Favourite photo(s) of the Year.



 Happy New Year! I hope that you have been happy and well through the Christmas period. We had the most brilliant time with our Sydney famille who sadly flew home yesterday.. already looking forward to seeing them in April. The City Daily Photo theme for the beginning of the new year is always favourite photo from the past year. It's a tricky one and almost impossible to choose just one as images hold different memories. The shot above taken back in August is a favourite because of.. you guessed it, the rain! It's been a while and will be a lot longer before we see any again. I enjoyed the symmetry of the mast reflections in the calm water below, although I'm totally a landlubber I do enjoy taking nautical reflections..


Below it was the unexpected swish and swirl of colour from the exotic costumes of a belly dancing group in the city.. you just never know what encounters are to be had in the city these days :)


I loved the shot below of the many conversations going on under the shade of the trees in Forrest Place, the town centre. Looking forward very much to catching up with what's been happening in your part of the world over the next few days. Happy first day of 2018, let's hope it's a better year for the world in general than last year.. take care and stay safe..

  3. I know exactly what you mean by a tough decision to choose just one. These are all wonderful photos. You did well narrowing them down to this group. I think my favorite is the rain shot probably for the same reason as you.

  9. I've missed seeing you, Grace but glad you had a wonderful time with family. Your images above are spectacular. One more beautiful than the other. I lost my husband, Grant late in November. I've also moved house - not to the place he was building for us, but to another cottage on the land of a farmer friend. The family and Valley friends have rallied around - I am truly blessed. Happy New Year to you. Greetings Jo (South Africa)

  12. So love the beautiful atmosphere in your first photo. Such a delightful mix of colours in the rain. Yes...I am still here, but work loads have been ridiculous in the last few months...It has taken time to breathe again, so I am trying to alter my routines for this coming year...Wishing you the very happiest New Year...

  18. I love this place. I had an event here back in May last year and I felt like it was a perfect day for us! The event space provides you with an event Specialist as part of your package which is extremely helpful. Plus all of us dressed up only added to the entire ambience.

  20. Happy New Year to you, Grace!
    Yes, it just has to be better than the last one!
    Before I could dip into your post I had to take in your new cover, though.

    Those jeans... my. Where is the hot guy???
    Can you make him the cover next, please?

    All pics are wonderful, I could not pick one, either!

  21. A second comment from me, the first being on your Facebook post. I also love the first shot of the rain and the umbrellas. The reflection on the wet pavement is always a bonus, and the umbrellas give a pop of color and pattern.

  22. Wow. Just totally wow. Your photography is priceless! Love all of these captures.

  24. Very fine choices, Grace. Your rainy day city scene is wonderful, and the masts might have been a pen and ink sketch. Lovely!
