Season's greetings - take care

Postby stubbsy on Fri Dec 23, 2011 5:41 pm

Another year is almost done and many have now headed off to enjoy the festive season with family and friends. Wherever you may be over the coming days I wish you a safe and happy time - take care on the roads, relax and make the most of whatever time you have.

Oh and get out and capture some fine images to kick off 2012.
Peter

Hope everyone gets through another silly season safely whilst enjoying the company of family and friends. Get out there, enjoy the crazy times that this season brings with it, and we'll all look forward to the sharing of the times in the new year!

Everyone, take it very easy, and stay safe and well. Take lots of photos, post 'em here

And spend lots of time with those nearest and dearest to you.

Time to relax and reflect on the past year and look forward to the coming new year.

Have a happy and safe holiday season. May you catch up and spend time with family and friends.

Cheers,

André

Oh if you have been turned into a frog...I guess we will be doing some more freshwater shoots and less ocean shoots...is this the reason for the lake/blue mts suggestion?

She looks adorable, love your work!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. :D I'm a bit late as the phone and net have been down since Friday, thank you Telstra. :(
