Versatile Blogger Award

I’ve been nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award twice and haven’t been able to pass it on up to now – but here it is! I’m going to deviate a little but from the normal format but a huge thanks to Xandré Verkes and Reina Cottier for nominating me. It’s much appreciated and provided some much-needed encouragement during my 2011 photo-a-day project 😀

Soooo, who’s blogs do I read the most? (In no particular order so please don’t be offended)

Just a few of the hugely talented individuals that I follow – make sure you take the time to have a look and follow them if you like what you see. Happy blogging people! 🙂

December 14: Merry Christmas!

We had a pretty busy day of Christmas shopping today and we now have all but one of our presents sorted and a lounge full of presents being wrapped! This is one of the wrapping papers that Mel bought today which is pretty cool and going to be wrapped around quite a few presents this Christmas. Looking forward to a Christmas that Brylee can actually enjoy this year and getting right into the swing of it on day 346 🙂

December 13: Christmas

It’s getting close! Less than two weeks to go and it’s actually starting to feel like Christmas now. The long summer days, the holidays, organising presents and what we are taking on Christmas day… Good times with a stunning day today – even got in a water tonight for the first surf of the summer! Anyway, a few quick shots of some of our Christmas decorations for day 345 and only 20 days left of this project!!

December 6: 3 Hearts

Still no camera! I had a big day at work today and didn’t have time to pick up the camera on my way home so my third night without it and not happy. I’ve given up on the point and shoot Samsung because it does my head in and resorted to my phone and the Instagram app for the photo tonight. Day 338 done but definitely getting my camera back tomorrow no matter what!

November 16: Perfect wife

I got home from our game tonight just after 8pm and walked through the door to a sparkling clean house, dishes done, dinner and dessert cooked, baby bathed and in bed, and washing folded. What a lucky man I am to have such an awesome wife! I was pretty excited about the apple crumble so here is a shot of it fresh out of the oven. A great end to day 318 😀

November 1: Take a guess…

It’s the first of November today and I can’t quite get over the fact that next month is December! Or that Brylee is 1 year old this Sunday! I don’t know where the year went… Anyway, that’s not really anything about my image for the day but for a reason – I’m not telling you what it is! Take a wild guess and if you are right you get…. well nothing really but a fantastic instinsic sense of achievement! Anyway, that’s it for day 303 so happy guessing!

October 26: Cookies and cream

I just got home from touch and pretty tired after playing a game with only 2 subs then refereeing a pretty fast game by myself. Good fitness though as I’ve got three pretty intense games this Saturday! Anyway, I was feeling like something to eat when I got home and found this cookies and cream ice cream in the freezer. It was looking so good as it was starting to melt that I thought I’d share it with you all. Great end to day 297 and pretty excited about hitting the 300-day mark this Saturday!

October 25: Canon 18-55mm

This is my kit lens that I got with the camera along with a 55-250mm. I use this lens for 99% of my photos and although the zoom lens comes in hand on rare occasions, it was probably a waste of money. I’m thinking of selling it and putting the money toward a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle or maybe even a faster fixed lens… So many options but all dependent on money so probably wont be happening for a while 🙂 Anyway, that’s my image plus story for day 296!

September 17: Broken bear

This bear sits on the doorstep at my parents house and has been there for quite a while. It’s getting fairly weathered from the elements and chipped from getting kicked and knocked as people walk past but is still there for some reason. I don’t really understand what the purpose of this bear is but apparently there is one… Anyway, this is getting un”bear”able so that’s my lot for day 258 😉
