Week 46 of this never-ending 366 challenge

I know I shall be sorry when the challenge is over but for the moment….

Anyway, this week, back home, from India into the cold climate of the British autumn. I hope you might forgive that I haven’t been hanging around outside much for photos this week but, on the positive side, it is pushing me to think about some indoor still lifes… Which it would seem I do need some practise with. Here goes:

Yet again this picture of my cute little Jack Russell because. not only did she win club dpi of the year at our local club but she has now won a bronze medal at the Sussex Photographic Federation this month.

WHY did I come back from town with more Christmas decorations? Save me from Christmas in November.

Week 42 of 366-2

Spent mostly in the middle of the Arabian sea on a little archipelago of islands which extend northwards from the Maldives and are an Indian territory known as the Lakshadweep Islands

(If it was week 42, there could only have been 10 weeks left of this year….? Noooo!!!!! And I’m posting this 3 weeks retrospectively so….. 7 weeks? Noo, noo, nooooooo!!! )

Anyway, the Lakshadweep Islands and then back to Fort Kochi:

Why does India have such lovely soft light? Hope it’s not the smog from the richshaws…. sad.

366 Challenge (-2)

I may have to change the title of the challenge I set myself this year which was to take a photo a day for 366 days. I cannot find two of the photos I should have taken for week 40 and until I do, I shall have to retitle this challenge 366-2days. Of course, I may never find them as it is quite possible that I never took them.. That week was quite a disorganised week with lots of travel plans to think about.

Those I do recall for week 40 were:

Week 39 of 366 Challenge

Oh, my goodness, I have some catching up to do to bring all this up to date. Everything got posted to FB and even Instagram whilst we were away. I didn’t post to WP as, during our travels, we weren’t stopping anywhere long enough to be able to compose a sentence – not that my sentences usually have much considered composition about them 🙂

Wk 39. the week before we flew off, looked like this:
