January 2014 - The Photos

At the beginning of the year, I decided to try posting a photo a day again in January.

The exercise seemed more difficult this year—I really had to scrutinise my surroundings to find something that I did not capture last year. I managed to stick to one photo a day except on the 27th. The chimneys at the old brick pit captured my imagination and conjured up images of Dickensian times. There were the photos that didn't materialise because they were not posted or not taken:

  • Blood-red bottlebrush with ‘golden’ tips
  • The juxtaposition of a garden of roses protected by barb wire
  • Mangoes my friend and I found growing in a local garden (mangoes in Sydney!!!)
  • The rescue of a noisy miner stuck in the grating covering a drain

Some favourites:

And I love the fact that Chinese New Year fell on the last day of January. It feels like a new beginning, a chance to review and reconfirm the goals made on January 1.

Following are thumbnails of the photos I posted in January with a link to the larger photo in Flickr.
