DAY 364 of 365 Day Challenge

The penultimate last day of the year. I will be in Vietnam late tonight and then travelling early from Hanoi to Halong Bay to go on a boat trip so it might be a while before I can post my last day.


Today I took this photo of two little girls walking home from school in the hot midday heat. Half the children do school in the morning and the other half do school in the afternoon. The rest of the time they often work. The other photos I have taken on various days of this trip.

Pictures hammered out of stiffened cow hide.

Day 361 of 365 Day Challenge

I can't believe I am finally near the end of my 365 day challenge. My main purpose was to create a library of digital mobile pictures which I certainly have done but it has been a wonderful way to document what must be one of the most incredible years I have ever had.

My final days of this year are in Cambodia with my very last day in Vietnam. This is my second trip to Cambodia and as memorable as my first. As well as seeing the temples today we went to the fishing village on stilts. The height of these buildings is quite incredible which they have to be because of the height of the water in the rainy season. Also you realise just how lucky you are when you see how basic and hard their life is. Children as young as 6 clearly all have to work and take part in helping the family survive. This is evident everywhere we went in Siem Reap.

I chose this photo as my main photo today because the silhouette that was created taking the photo into the sun reflects the starkness of the place.

Day 350 of 365 Day Challenge

I was having dinner at a restaurant with friends at the IFC Mall and decided to go early to take photos of the big bell decorations. When I arrived I discovered there was a magical performance on with a lady and a man swinging around in a massive hoop. It was a lovely act.

Day 346 of 365 Day Challenge

A spectacular Christmas display at the Landmark Atrium on Hong Kong this year. The structures in the air all moved either up and down or in a circle. Many of the elements had moving parts.
I ran out of space on my iPhone 6 so I borrowed my husband's new iPhone 6s. Drool.

Apps: iPhone 6s native camera, Stackables, iColorama for the border.

Hong Kong is actually a really fun place to be over Christmas. They go over the top with decorations which give it a really festive mood. Our foyer is full of decorations. Here is part of the snowman scene:

Day 338 of 365 Day Challenge

We went to the Cheeky Monkey micro brewery and winery in Margaret River, Western Australia. Looking out from the restaurant verandah is a lake and I noticed a big flock of birds in the tree so I waited a while and managed to get this shot when they all took flight. The photo was originally taken in ProCamera, cropped and tuned in Snapseed and then I took it into Hipstamatic and applied Jing lens, Louis XIV infrared film and Laser Lemon Gel flash.
