Christmas thoughts

Ready for santa coming

Ready for santa coming

Stressful day today went to the printers, the present for my niece (a 12×10 print of a horse with a frame….had my name chopped off halfway through my surname. Ended up going and buying another frame and making a border and signing the border… it actually ended up looking better than the original frame. (lesson for today never get your name printed on your photographs unless you really perfect it. Have slowly been getting used to using photoshop (so much more to learn) plus for the last 3 prints I ordered the wrong size 7×5 instead of 8×6. (got the calenders mixed up….did some at 7×5 and 2 others as 8×6). I just ended up using them. One was ok as it was for the front cover, but one for my brother 2 of the months have smaller prints.

Another salsa Congress this time in Malta

November was a fantastic month for me apart from being my birthday I went to Malta for the first time and to stay in a 5* hotel, It was also the first time I have went to an international salsa congress. Not only was there over 2000 dancers from all walks of life, I had the chance to use my camera to get some shots of this beautiful Island.

My view over looking my balcony – each room had their own balcony

found the time to go for a stroll with the camera round my neck – thank goodness its a light model.

love these little boats

This boy captured my eye ( was trying to keep up with the man in front and looked so sweet carrying his own shopping bag)

Jersey

In October I was lucky to get some time away to a salsa congress and get some practice in using my camera. Here is a collection of photo’s I took while there.

This little seagull just happened to land just at the point of taking the shot

was so hoping to see them play but was over the other side of the park when I heard them

love the colours in this shot

paths through the gardens

Love the colours in the rock formation on the edge of the beach

Really thought this little dog was going to jump in, now if it had been my Noah there would be no hesitation. How i did miss him, especially seeing all the other dogs enjoying the beach
