Week 52 Project366 – 2016

Week 52 Project366 – 2016

Here we are at the end of another year, it really is Week 52 Project366! Tough going this year! We had a quiet Christmas and New Year. Here’s the highlights.

Week 51 

On the lead up to Christmas so we were busy getting last minute shopping and wrapping presents.

We went to see Passengers in the cinema. This is about people on a space journey to colonise a distant planet 120 years away from Earth. But after a part of the craft is hit by some space rocks it malfunctions and wakes up one of the passengers. It’ll be a spoiler to tell you more! This is great movie, a serious situation punctuated with a bit of fun.

Week 52 Project366

Above :

  • New lens practice – Second Severn Crossing
    Left photo at 55mm and right at 210mm. 
  • New lens and AYWMC book. No excuses to improve now! 
  • Trying to get heart shaped Bokeh for this weeks AYWMC task – this was my best attempt. 

Week 52

It’s Christmas!!! A long Skype session with son in Oz and then we popped down to see the boys around mid morning. Ashley was excited and couldn’t wait to open his parcels! Theo was less interested as he already had a car mat and cars! Mind you when he spotted the box of cars we got for Ashley he soon nabbed them…even though he had a set of cars to open for himself!
We went back home to get lunch on and spent the rest of the day lounging about watching TV.

Boxing Day – off for a walk as it was dry and the boys came around for tea.

We didn’t go to the cinema as I wasn’t well on Tuesday and too tired after work on Wednesday. Guess how many times we’ve been this year…..including those I’ve seen on my own and ones we’ve seen twice it’s 43!!

The rest of the week was a wash out. I’ve got gastroenteritis and been ill for the past 3 days. So no photos taken for the end of the year.

Week 52 Project366

And that’s it!! Another year done, 5 years!  I plan on continuing with #365 and following A Year with My Camera.  It’s been a really good course and so easy to follow. If you’re interested go to  AYearWithMyCamera and register.

These next two are a review of the year.

Happy New Year!

    happy new year! and well done on completing another year in photos, I think it is def getting harder now as the boys get older to take one every day.
    sounds like a lovely Christmas Day seeing the boys and having a relaxing afternoon. 43 trips to the cinema is good going – I always enjoy reading your film reviews. xx

    Glad you got to see the boys on Christmas day, Cant believe how much they have both grown up this year.
    At least 43 visits has made your bogof card worthwhile.
    Sorry to hear you have not been well. think the older we get the longer it takes to recover.
    Glad you are doing another year, I have decided I am joining you as well.

      Oh welcome to AYWMC! The book is basically what Emma sends out in the weekly email. It covers everything up to the end of May.
      It gives a little more detail and a quick quiz after each part.
      Nice to have but not essential.
