Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs

It is getting close to Christmas and I have been spending most of my time trying to get ready for that.  It is so busy right now and time is running out.  My mum is arriving later today to spend some time with us, which I know will be great and I am looking forward to it, but we have to get organised before she gets here.

Blog

I am going to continue blogging, maybe not everyday, will see how I go, over the next week, but they will be short posts or something else.  I don’t want to spend a lot of time here, especially while my mum is here.  We have lots of plans for things that we want do.

I don’t know if I told you that when I was in the city recently for Social Snappers I got a better video of the lights on the Melbourne Town Hall, the Christmas Light Show.  I have put it up on YouTube if you are interested in watching it, and you can see it here, Christmas Light show. You will have to excuse the trams going past, unfortunately nothing I could do about them.

leannecole-blockarcade-20131129-5406I had an email from Ken Bennison this week to tell me he has published a new book, A Wilderness Experience Through The Camera’s Lense, and the book is available on Amazon, so click here if you would like to take a look at it.

I’m afraid that is about all I have for you this week.  I have collected some of my favourite images from Christmas last year and thought I would share them with you today.  Monochrome Madness is looking amazing for this week, so if you haven’t got your Monochrome image with a touch of colour into me time is running out.
