It’s the last day of 2012, and the world is still spinning (contrary to some people overdoing the Mayan calendar thing). So I thought I’d spend a couple of minutes looking back at all that’s happened. Without further ado, please read on.

Our ‘last’ flying holiday for awhile, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Enjoyed most of it except for the major food-poisoning part in HK. I can tell you for sure that it definitely was NOT fun, especially since we were flying to Taiwan already…

First engagement session of the year…. I love this park.

Second engagement/pre-wedding session at St Patrick’s Cathedral. I remembered almost being shoo-ed out, but the guy was pretty nice about it. Heh.

Last major road trip for awhile, somewhere around Lake Eildon. I put the camera on the car, framed it using Live View, and set it on a timer. I hate tripods, but I’ve got to admit it would’ve been better than balancing it on a car sometimes. Eight months pregnant.

We took this at the Botanical Gardens. Rosi saw the books at the book store going for cheap and thought it’d be a nice prop. I agree.

One of my favourite shots for the year. It was also my first time on the D800. Did I mention how creamy the images turn out?

Ok. Not much beats this event. Jacob Cheong, Day 1.

It was getting late but I saw the light shining down at the Treasury Gardens.

I don’t usually do night-shots, as it’s not my preference, but this was striking at the State Library.

Cloudehill Nursery. Amazing location. Now if only I had a couple more hours…

This was a proposal that needed to be seen….

The boy, at 6 1/2 months. Taken at home, with the camera on an ironing board (there’s something about me and the lack of tripods).

Last wedding image of the year. And their first dance.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day. ~ Edith Lovejoy Pearce

Happy New Year.
