Thematic Photographic: Softness

Carmi's theme this week is softness.. go here.

What do I like that's soft?

The feel of a baby's head -

Cats, of course -

Sophie loves the sheepskin rug

and the long leaves of this plant

Sophie's predecessor, Witten

Soft rain on the petals of a flower -

And the soft light of dusk, my favourite time of day -

Thematic Photographic: Multiples

Where to find some multiples that I haven't posted before?

About two weeks before Christmas I was at a mall in the late afternoon, just before closing time. There weren't many people about, but I can see quite a few multiples in the shots I took. See more at Carmi's Written.Inc.

The Best Thing

The best thing this Christmas/New Year has been seeing all of my immediate family together, 
for the first time in three years. 

One of them wasn't even born last time we were all in the same place!

Here are a few favourite shots from the last few weeks.

My beautiful granddaughter. She will be 4 in March:

Her little brother, who has just turned 2:

And both of them at my favourite spot - on the water - with their dad:

Thematic Photographic: On the Water

This week, Carmi's theme is On the Water, and people have been posting 
beautiful water pictures - go here to see.

In all of these, I am the one "on the water".

Crossing the Bosphorus by ferry:

On a cruise boat, looking at the Old Port in Antalya, Turkey:

Another ferry trip, this time across the Dardanelles:

Views and villages on the Cinque Terre, Italy - from the water:

Coming in to Portofino, Italy, on yet another ferry boat:

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea.

TP 228: Faves of the Year

Carmi has provided the prompt of  "Faves of the Year" over on Thematic Photographic. I'm glad to relive some of the shots which bring back memories of a great road trip I did around the South Island of New Zealand. You may have seen these before!

On Lake Dunstan, a couple sit separately but together ~

Reflections in Lake Ianthe ~

The Information Centre at the Okarito Lagoon ~
