Christmas 2007

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 25, 2007

WOW! Christmas 2007 in Perth is scorching summers day – around 38c and the air-con is running hard. Weather Bureau says this is going to be the hottest Christmas Period since 1919 – 36 yesterday, 39 today, 40+ tomorrow and the next day will also be a hot one. So very different to many of our friends and readers around the world who haveChristmas as a winter experience.

Nonetheless we are celebrating the Birth of Christ and the beginning of the story. So this morning before the gifts were dispersed I took a pic of the Christmas tree that bore the handiwork of each contributing member. Blue lights on the tree contrasting to the normal lighting. It was great. My pic of the day is our 2007 Christmas Tree!

My hope and prayer is that wherever you are for Christmas that it will be a blessing to you and the year ahead will be a positive experience. Happy Christmas.

Christmas Lunch on the Foreshore

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 23, 2007

Last week our work folk all got together for an afternoon lunch and celebrations for Christmas down the Nedlands foreshore. Absolute glorious early summers day in Perth. Fab time and it really was well earned after a really busy year at the office.

Two of our colleagues have been on Maternity Leave for a little bit. Well they came along near on an hour after we had started. Guess what suddenly took all the attention,……. yep! two little babies. And it wasn’t just the ladies getting all gahgah over the bubs. The blokes too. Fari crack of the whip! Well I decided I should record some this for our staff photoshow tooooo 🙂 Took just a couple or three. [if you go back a couple of months you will see some earlier shots – especially of a very pregnant Ange]

So I decided that it was probably appropriate for two photos to herald both the end of one year and the beginnings of the next. And in our case what more to reflect that newness but the new babes of the Verigen family. The oldest first of course – by around 3 months.
