i can't quite settle with my template
(as you might have guessed!)
i'm still adjusting
but for now have settled on a new arrangement
going back to a once-liked formula
this year i joined a flickr group
where i'm posting a photo a day
that'll be 366 this year then
here's a couple of my january contributions
i'm noticing how muted all the colours are
which i suppose is down to the winter light here
next week i'm looking forward to seeing more winter whites
over at the glass doorknob + all around

reflecting on this + wanting to do something similar but on a new level
my beginning here was a photo by hazel. the colours + shapes. so a special credit needs to be given for that shot of inspiration i needed. i'm still playing around with the idea of adding more detail or using a more abstract base (like the middle one) to embellish. i'd like to eventually stretch them on little frames.
actually...i think the middle one is going to be the best to work with even though it's just the reverse of the illustration scanned in!

we saw in 2008 from the comfort of our home...the first time we've ever done this i think. usually we've been out galavanting somewhere : ) shivering whilst trying to find a taxi in the early hours...all great new years in themselves but i like how this one's taking shape already.
we cooked together. sat by the fire. had a wee glass of champagne + sang along with jools.
it's been nice to take things easy. to have some time to reflect on the year that's just passed + think about the new one ahead. i have a good feeling about it. little projects. big projects. some just for me + some to share. xxx
