The End of Year 40.

The end of my 40th year has come to pass, which also means so has my photo a day to record the goings on of this "Life begins" year.

I have to say that it has been a very mixed year and not sure that I really enjoyed a great part of it. Life did not begin that is for sure, but thankfully it did not end either. Every cloud and all that jazz!

I have enjoyed trying to do my photo a day. There were a few days over the time where I have not taken a photo, but on the whole I think I have managed quite well. I am not saying that they are all fantastic photos, many are just snap shots of a dull day. I think the beginning of the year I had more time on my hands so there were a few more set up shots, but it has got me into the habit of taking my camera everywhere I go now.

I amassed a total of 2545 photos and seem to have 482 in my "All days" album. So obviously I have more than one a day for some days. The tricky part is now trying to organise them into a book.

It has been a very enjoyable process and very worth while doing as I think it will make a good record of my year. I am not quite sure what my next photo project will entail but will definitely think of things to keep my camera snapping.

Year summary in a word. WET.

In memory of...

His journey's just begun.
Don't think of him as gone away
his journeys just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrow and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.
