Happy New Year to all of you! My very best wishes for a happy, peaceful and prosperous 2018.
2017 was a really tough year for me in many ways. I had severe eye infections on two occasions which left me unable to take pictures for a couple of weeks both times, I've also suffered a prolonged bout of depression which lasted off and on for most of the year, and I had problems at the day-job which also affected my general mood and wellbeing.
One of the unfortunate consequences of all of this was that my picture-taking suffered badly; I took hardly any pictures last year - as you will have seen from the site.
However, all that is behind me hopefully; it's a new year, I'm in a new job and I'm happy! So, in an effort to boost my picture-taking, I've set myself a challenge: to take and post online a new picture every day throughout 2018. There are only two rules:
- the picture must be taken that day - no raiding the archive!
- it must be posted before midnight on the day it was taken
