Adventures in Seeing

I am spending this year following along with a book called 'Adventures in Seeing' by Kim Manley Ort.  There are 45 activities to do with taking photographs and a Facebook group in which to share.

This week's call to adventure was to either photograph a meal including the preparation or photograph a food event eg a restaurant meal.  Well, last night Roger and I went to a Thai restaurant to celebrate Roger's 70th birthday.  Part of the adventure is to create a collection of 10 or so images.   I took rather more than that but I have whittled it down to these.

Prawn crackers that actually tasted of prawns.

The dragon on Roger's beer glass

The shadow caused by the light on an empty glass

The starter - a sharing platter

The main course with rice (that I didn't photograph)

And then photos of the lights and the patterns they made

The candle on the table

Jars on the counter as we left

Did I finish?

Yes I did!

I continued in my December Daily binder up to December 31st.

On the right one picture for each of December 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th

On the left the wedding we went to on December 30th and then just a plan for December 31st.  We watched Jools Holland but had red wine!

And on the back - drumroll please - my word for 2017

I have done One Little Word with Ali Edwards with varying success over the years.  This time when I signed up for the class I ordered the kit as well.  I thought maybe I would keep up with the class if I didn't have to think so much!

So, not only did I finish December Daily for the whole month, I have finished all of the January prompt for One Little Word.

Go me!

Thanks for stopping by.

December Daily

December Daily is intended to last from December 1st to December 25th and to chronicle a story each day.  However my book is more of a diary and less about the story.

I am really pleased to say that I have finished the book to December 25th.  Here are my pages from December 18th.

I chose a photo a day from the last week to put in the pockets on the left.

I am going to include photos from December 26th to 31st.  I have put two page protectors in the binder ready and will put all of those in tomorrow.

Thank you so much for following along with my December Daily and with my blog over this year.  I have enjoyed your company and your comments.

Here's to 2017.
