It's been a pretty good year.
I have a lot to be thankful for.
I have THE GIFT. The one where you have a Rock of Ages, where you can hide yourself and be assured of solace and peace and love and a whole lot of et cetera.
I've got the best of kith and kin that life can offer, I mean what's it all mean without good people to share it all with?
Even though my industry is on crutches with the price of Brent crude currently sitting at around $36 per barrel and people are losing jobs in thousands, I have gainful employment that I actually enjoy (most of the time).
And then this year, I received lots of material gifts. There was Ferragamo, Dior, Swarovski, Tory Burch, Max Mara and Louis Vuitton, I got iPhones and watches and then...drumroll...I got a Nikon D7100!
Much love for all my gifts and our apparent consumerism that cannot be switched off, however the camera allows me to tell stories and freeze moments. You can argue that a smart phone can equally do that but any photog (amateur or professional), will tell you a camera is a camera IS a camera.
A little snapshot of some of my gifts.
I'm eternally grateful to THE GIFT.
