THE YEAR THAT WAS

Just a quick trip through 2016
I experimented with abstract photography in January

We went to New Zealand in February

Our camera club had a photo shoot at Cleveland Point, near Brisbane in March

We went to the Blue Mountains, NSW with Carol and David in April.

I went to Cairns, FNQ in May

Kangaroo Island , SA in June

We went to Melbourne to spend time with grand children in July

Spring came early to my garden in August.

Fox and Banjo came to visit in September.

We went to a reunion in Caloundra, QLD in October

We found a sick Koala on our morning walk in November.

Christmas shopping in December.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS

I had missed a few of these. What lovely photographs to remember your year. I should compile books for my life as most of my photos are not going to be saved by ANYONE after I am gone.

What a great round up of your year. If I tried to do mine I think I would have mostly blanks. Trying to be a better photographer/blogger this year.

Happy New Year.

Quick trip through a fascinating (as always) year! Happy 2017.

PS: Did you do anything about the koala? Just curious -- I know we have animal rescue places here, but I wouldn't know how to call them if I did see a sick bird or animal. Probably should find out maybe.
