It was Christmas Eve.
More than that. it was goodbye to my little camera. It had developed a problem in its sensor and was no longer very good with sunsets or images in other than bright light.
I took it on my walks that day and photographed petunias in my cousin’s garden
White Grevillea and wattle flowering over someone’s fence
a rose and more wattle
Grevillea flowering in the corner outside someone’s garden wall
and the red flowering gum, flowering like a Christmas tree
Sunset from my friend’s front garden: the creeping red an indication of the beginning of the heatwave due to start on Christmas Day
and on the way home: the glow behind the city and from outside my house
then into my courtyard:
It feels like stepping *inside* a Christmas tree 🙂
And this – the most special photo of them all: the moon on Christmas Eve and the last photo from my little camera.
Goodbye little Powershot sx120. You taught me a lot.
I am sorry I have been so quiet.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with light, laughter and joy.
