Fresh Start

Happy New Year!  I went to a fireworks display on the coast and I could hardly move because there were so many people! I set my camera to sports mode and the longer exposure meant I captured some really quirky photographs.  I'm thinking of submitting the last one to a competition the town is holding :)

This morning lots of people were tweeting about a gorgeous sunrise but it was pretty bleak here (as usual).  My resolutions this year are to be more creative, be healthier and to start saving up for a classic mini!  It's my dream car and I'd like to get one sooner rather than later.  I love my current car but he's starting to show his age :'(

I'm also going to make a memory jar as I'm useless at consistently writing in diaries.  I think it's a cheap and fun alternative to keeping a journal, plus I feel it's better to focus on documenting happy moments and not the sad ones.  Do you have any resolutions?

    1. I'm still trying to build the confidence to submit the photo D: I remember seeing loads of professional photographers that night and I don't know how my one will compare to theirs. I guess there's no harm in trying though :)

  5. Happy New Year! Your photos are beautiful, I especially love the bottom one :)
    I think I'm going to start a memory jar too, it's such a cute idea and much easier to keep than a journal :)
    I hope you have a lovely weekend :) xxx

    1. Thanks for commenting! I was trying to get a sense of a 'new beginning' in my last photo. It might be 2013 now but it's still Winter here. The trees are bare but Spring is on its way :) I'm glad you like it!
