A Photo a Day #368 (final photo, 31st December 2017)

The End

Taken on my stroll around Tonbridge park on Christmas Eve, this felt like a good end point for this 'Photo a Day' challenge. I'm quite pleased with the composition.

A Photo a Day #366

My youngest brother cuddling Daisy after a huge Christmas meal. Capturing moments like this are the reason I'll never stop taking photos.

A Photo a Day #365

Our family cat, Daisy, is eighteen years old, very frail, deaf and incredibly affectionate. Her sister passed away a few years ago, but Daisy remains a huge part of the family. Here she is opening a present with my dad.

A Photo a Day #363

This squirrel was photographed on Christmas eve on a walk around Tonbridge park. It was so relaxing to stroll, alone, around with my camera and it was a very fruitful afternoon. It took me five minutes to perfect the angle of this shot.

A Photo a Day #362

Warm Wishes
Happy Christmas!

Please note, I've bodged up the dates on this 'Photo a Day' thing! I realised yesterday as I was pre-planning for the last 6 days that I was ahead of myself (this should be day #359). I've worked out that on a few days I posted twice accidently, but hey, it's better to be too keen than to have missed a day. I thought about correcting the dates, but it would be a big fuss, and also I have made collages for every month as I have gone along, so this would also throw those out. Never mind.

A Photo a Day #361

The Best Present
Our two-year old cat, Maisie, has been a big part of the #photoaday challenge and with good reason. She is a good poser and a beautiful model. We love her so much.

Here's a photo of her in 2015 compared to 2017:

Happy Christmas eve!

A Photo a Day #356

Before the Show

Taken inside my classroom just after arriving to start the day. It's dark and cold outside, but the show must inevitably go on.

A Photo a Day #355

Winter's Gift
Absolutely stunning pink skies at around 4:30pm as the sun had nearly set. The mist hung over the field where a lone walker strolled in the cold. Taken with a wide aperture lens.

A Photo a Day #354

It used to be these were more of a punishment at Christmas, something to eat one or two of for the sake of being 'Christmassy'. I've grown to love them over the last few years.

A Photo a Day #353

The contrast of the warm and cool colours and the (unintentional) level of noise gave this a retro and cosy feel. Not an amazing photo, but nonetheless a portrait of Christmas. 

I'm struggling with content at the moment as I'm working like crazy and exhausted. Expect some better photos over the last few weeks of the year as I will be off work and out and about. On another, more positive note, I haven't missed a single day of this 'Photo a Day' project! I'll say more about the experience once it's complete, but I'll definitely be setting myself a new photography challenge for 2018. Watch this space.

A Photo a Day #338

Creepy Old Bearded Fella
Taken last Christmas: a Santa Christmas ornament at my parents' house. This was taken with my Sony A5000 macro lens when I first got it.
