The second last post of the year and the possibly last feature of Owen for the year. Actually today's shot was between this of Owen playing with the world's best Aunty (Nadia) or the reddest redhead I've ever seen. As beautiful as the redhead was, Mr Cutiepie Owen won out.

I might post the shot of the reddest redhead some time in the future. But for now on the second last night of the year, here's wishing one and all a happy new year. More tomorrow.

With the count and the days left in the year, it's obvious something has gone awry here. At some stage during the year, I must have added an extra day or something to that effect... nevertheless I'll try and correct it somehow in the next few days.

Today's shot is composite of the 2 things that take up most of my day... the garden and Owen. More tomorrow.

The obligatory shot from Dad's garden. I do a few of these shots a few times a year, and they never fail to please. And I never ever know the type of flower... ever. Well, more tomorrow I guess.

In keeping with the Christmas spirit, here's the little drummer boy... who also happened to celebrate his 1st birthday today. Happy Birthday Owen. I see a drum set as a present in the very near future. More tomorrow.

Meet the newest edition to the family this christmas. Young Owen was born 11 months and 28 days ago, so he's spending his first Christmas with us. I doubt he'll ever remember this, but he's brought all of us a lot of joy, and to think, he almost couldn't make it down to Perth this time.

So it's a merry Christmas from Owen to everyone! More tomorrow.

The ceremonial washing of the lawn chairs before Christmas... yes it's a thing. I take out 2 dozen or so lawn chairs from the shed every year, give them a good spray down and wipe, in preparation for the christmas party.

Here they are glistening in the morning sun after being washed down, only complaint is HDR really brings out the years worth if dust... damn you HDR for exposing my cleaning inefficiencies. More tomorrow.

Got up to this amazing site this morning. And the best part is realising that it's going to be the first Christmas in about 5 or 6 years that is not in the 40 degrees. And also, in a very long time, we're going to have a very packed house for Christmas, which I am very grateful for.

More tomorrow.

Were down to single digits for the number of days left in the year. Flew into Perth this afternoon, and apart from the food, we've been slightly less busier with the preparations for Xmas and just eating in general.

It seems that there will be a little jam session on Xmas day, so we've been pulling out the old drum kit and cleaning it running it through it's paces. Here's a shot of my old snare circa late 1960s. Still one of my favourite snare drums of all time. More tomorrow.

Flying off in a few hours for the holidays. It's been a very long, last day of work, but a whole lot of fun. Luckily I had enough time to take a shot of some recently procured jewellery... that's the middle snake ring. More tomorrow from Perth.

It looks like I'm not a multi-millionaire, I was a mere 7 numbers short of the winning numbers. Oh well.

As it happens, there's also a full moon out, and as you know, it brings out the crazy in a lot of people... wish I could say that was what was happening here. More tomorrow.

Out to a little reunion tonight at St Kilda Beach. It was a gathering of 6 current and ex colleagues... fun times.

Took this shot just before taking a seat and a few drinks. More tomorrow.

13 days to go to the end of another year. While 13 may be an unlucky number to some, I am not superstitious. Besides, today has been rather momentous; The coach of my favourite football club finally gets the sack (something I've been calling for since his appointment 18 months ago), Australia wins back the Ashes, and if all goes well, I should be a multi-millionaire, once i check my lottery ticket. Fingers crossed, touch wood, throw salt over the shoulder...

Here's Ashlee Anne surrounded by light, rather christmasy in a dark/goth sort of way. More tomorrow.

Spent most of the morning trying to get tickets to Rolling Stones, but to no avail. Was pretty pissed off at the end, but I'm sure something will come up, at least i'm hoping something will.

Anyway, here's one from another concert. Though you don't get to see the act, i thought the silhouette and Bokeh was just too cool. More tomorrow.

Spent the whole day in recovery mode, which means parked for hours in front of the TV with the cricket on and falling in and out of sleep.

Anyway here's one from earlier with a background i shot at the party last night. More tomorrow.

Had the big company dinner and dance last night, it's 8.30am the following day and I've only just got back in... so you can imagine how I feel right now.

Took this during the dance portion of the night... here's Eugene showing off his moves. All class. More tomorrow.

Less than 20 days to the end of the year, to the end of year 4... And it's a thursday, so here's some crazy composite work... all I can say is I started with a nude Elizabeth and built the image up from there. Lots of fun and it's now 2.30 in the morning. More tomorrow.

Spent most of the day in recovery after the concert and a marathon football watching through the night. So here's something I put together... Elizabeth doing a golf clap at the concert. Hey it's the weekend... I'm allowed some fun. More tomorrow.

At Bon Jovi tonight... Managed to sneak my camera in this time... I really don't understand what the deal is with camera restrictions at concerts. After spending hundreds of dollars, why deny us the chance to keep some mementos.

Anyway enough ranting, the concert was his usual good, but not at his best... maybe he was really missing Richie Sambora... who knows.

I'll post more in a Flickr set. More tomorrow.

Was working on my Workshop image, and decided to play around with this shot I took the other day. It sounds weird to be taking a break from one photoshop project with another photoshop project... but it makes sense in my world.

Anyway thanks to the great legs of Ashlee Anne, here's today's shot. More tomorrow.

It's getting to that time of the year where I start asking myself if I'll do this 365 for another year. Which will take me into year 5. I've missed a total of 6 posts in that time... 6 out of over 1400+ days isn't bad. I've been through 3 cameras from entry model to a full frame, I've worked with studio lights, flashes and ambient, and I've come to realise that for me, post production is just as satisfying as shooting.

So the question of whether to continue will linger for another 27 days, and I'll decide on New Year's Day.

So here's another composite picture of a car I shot yesterday and of a towelled Elizabeth from the workshop... It's funny how a little bit of design and coloured vinyl really made the car look much better, and Elizabeth clad in simple white towels cannot dampen her beauty. More tomorrow.

A bit of bokeh with Elizabeth. I'm still in the midst of finishing off my Aurum Light Workshop image and I have to admit it's really a long process.

Anyway here's a little something I shot on the side the other day. More tomorrow.

More fun with photoshop for this Sunday after Saturday's shenanigans...

A strange thing happens at the polo, a whole line of women stand in line and sprint a good 50 meters just to snatch a hat off a polo player... I don't get it. And apparently neither does the towelled Elizabeth. More tomorrow.

Out to Paspaley Polo in The City today. Was my first time there and it was quite interesting. Lots of food, alcohol and photo ops, such as the fashion on the field. Here's one I quite liked. More Tomorrow.
