I better get a move on with my Christmas shopping and working out what we are going to do this Christmas. As I said last Friday I am going to be busy this December photographing the Christmas Festival for the City of Melbourne, so I will have to see what I can do in between. I will be spending quite a bit of time in the city, so many opportunities to take in what will be happening there.
The tree from last year. I didn’t realise that it was a real tree and that they will be using the same tree this year. The lights are set to be turned on next Friday night, so I hope as many of you who live in Melbourne will come along. It looks set to be a spectacular evening.
I mentioned last week, at least I hope I did, that for the month of December I would try and put up Christmas photos every day leading up to Christmas. Which means that some things for the time being will stop, like my introductions posts, they will recommence in January and I already have someone lined up for the first post.
So, for the month of December on the Monday posts I thought I might show Christmas from other parts of the world. I am not totally sure how this is going to work, but I want to show your images. Last week I talked about a challenge for photographing Christmas, and I want to be able to share those images.
I thought people could send me a link, then I can copy an image from their blogs and put them up on my Monday posts with a link back to them. I will only do it for people who send me links. You can email the links to me. I don’t know exactly how it is going to work, but I am happy to give it a go.
I haven’t posted any awards that I have received for a while. I was collecting them, and then something happened to the page I was saving them on and they were deleted. Then I started again, using my self hosted blog, but when I went to change it to my website, well, everything had to be deleted and I lost them all again.
I knew I had to find a better way of doing them. I can’t reciprocate, I am sorry, but I do like to acknowledge the people who have nominated me for an award, so I have come up with a new plan. Under my awards page at the top, I have a list of the awards that have been given to me recently and the people who have nominated me with a link to their website. I hope this is a good compromise.
