Another year has flown past or at least some of it has flown past.
The winter months of this year saw me locked away in my man cave, hunched over a keyboard, processing some 2,000 + images and uploading them to my new image gallery.
This year has been a huge success for me photographically.
I got first class images, of a number of birds that I have wanted for more than a few years.
I want to thank all the people who have made my Facebook Group New Zealand bird image share so successful. We have a wonderful group of people and a membership of over 1500 people now and still growing strongly. But numbers mean nothing compared to the quality of the members that contribute, not only with their images but with their sense of humour and community spirit.
The Christmas spirit
I wish all of my viewers and customers a wonderful and safe Christmas.
For those who will be putting their Christmas holidays to good use and planning on spending them with a camera in their hands, I wish them all good luck and take all you have learned this past year and put those skills to good use.
Some will have family commitments to consider, while others will be free to just do whatever they want. Either way be careful and drive extra cautiously, don’t overspend and get into debt.
Don’t overeat or drink too much and if you do, blame yourself not those with you lol. Enjoy yourselves and recharge for the new year that is ahead of us.
Christmas should not be about presents, it should be about creating new memories. Years from now the presents will be forgotten, but family adventures will be relived with those whom we shared them with for years and years to come.
As a Christian, for me, Christmas is a time of mixed emotions.
This time of the year many of us will celebrate the Creator God Yeshua being incarnated into His own creation so that all who believe in Him will spend eternity enjoying His creation.
But also Christmas is a time of rampant uncontrolled commercialism.
Whatever Christmas means to you, do all things in moderation except loving one another. Be extravagant when it comes to loving each other and don’t stop when Christmas is over. The best gift we can give anyone is ourselves.
Time is the currency of love that will never devalue and our time is the greatest gift we can give someone.
