Living in 2008

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 1, 2008

Some years just seem to fade into the rear vision mirror and yet others remain vibrant and alive in the memory bank for eons. Theres a multitude of good and bad reasons for that.  For me 2007 will remain as one of new beginnings.  And 2008? Don’t we always look forward to the freshness that a new year seems to bring.  I wish you well for this New Year ahead and hope that will be blessed with fabulous lifelong memories by the time it ends.

Today’s pic was taken on Saturday 29th of December. Huge 26 strong extended family shoot over 5 hours and untold photos taken.  This little guy was a bit tired at this point but fluctuated with laughter and tears.  He plonked himself down on the grass and just looked around at all that was going on.  He wasn’t looking a me, but way past the camera.

He probably won’t remember anything of 2008 – it’s only his second year.  But through it he will laugh and cry and be happy and be sad.  But often he will do what he did when I took this pic – just look and take in all that is.  And it will create an imagining that children do so well.  May I should hope that each of us take the time to do exactly that in 2008 also.

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.
