Breakfast in America

Living happily ever after still means you have to clean house and do the dishes


365 Days – a project to take a self portrait every day for a year. The rules are simple. I must be visible in the picture, and I must take the picture. This is my first complete 365 days project. All I had to help me get into the pictures was a 10 second timer. It’s surprising how fast you can get at getting into position!

Apart… (365:270)

Apart… …for now.A collaborative picture with Ginger.

Bi-centenary celebrations (365: 202)

200 days deserves a bit of a song and a dance. It is a shame that because of poor counting this was actually day 202. Oh well, my actual Day 200 picture was probably more appropriate.

Fresh (365: 175)

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Stunned (365:171)

This is what it looks like when the financial rug is unexpectedly pulled out from under you. [5 pictures]

Calm Centre (365: 135)

Many years ago I visited this spot at a time when I needed to make an important decision. I also needed a place and memory to act as a calm reference point to carry with me and help in the years to come.

A quick break (365: 118)

Chasing out for the electrics, I took a quick break for today’s picture. Not quite as good as the similar shot on Day 90, but what a difference a month makes, two pics in a row and I’m smiling! Just… Continue Reading →

Disappointing (365: 109)

But only because I had to straighten the image, and I was trying to avoid post processing. I deleted all my other shots for today as they all had a slant to them – I’ll try again tomorrow. Re-edited August… Continue Reading →

On the beach (365: 99)

I had to wade into the sea, to get one shot, so I thought I might as well take my 365 days self-portrait at the same time, I think the people on the beach thought me a little odd, especially… Continue Reading →

Firelight (365: 98)

It was 27°C (81°F) in the shade here today, so what better way to celebrate in the cooler evening than sitting by the fire with a glass of wine. Note. Kids can be a right royal PITA. Despite being told… Continue Reading →

What a Difference a Beer Makes – Product Placement (365: 96)

Today Thursdays and the 365 days project conspired to really get me down.

Tempting (365: 94)

365 days can do this to you…

And why not? (365: 93)

My planned 365 days picture was okay, but too mundane, so I took this. My planned shot.

Break (365: 90)

Work on renovating the hall has begun. Today we took down the ceilings on the middle and ground landings and my work room. we also took out the wall between the landing and my work room. There was no way… Continue Reading →

Just Me (365: 88)

Day 88 of my 365 days project on Flickr.

Bliss (365: 84)

Oh the benefits of a sheltered, south facing, garden when there is a cold wind blowing from the north.

Thursdays (365: 82)

I recently wrote that I had yet to capture the ‘essence’ of myself. This, I think might be it

Safety in Numbers (365:55)

Last minute panic! I just didn’t like any of the pictures I took earlier, so I had to fall back on my old favourite – the desk lamp. Why safety in numbers? Because it took 38 photographs to get this… Continue Reading →

At Ease (365: 51)

I’ve run out of time. I couldn’t choose a picture so I’ll go with the first. That’s a big problem with self portraits. You end up taking a lot –

Too Much… (365:50)

I felt a bit rough when I got up this morning, and heaven knows why, but for some masochistic reason, I pointed a camera at myself
