No, not mine..........I wish! We went to a colleague of my husband's retirement party last Saturday and I was approached to be "official" photographer and here are some "arty-farty" ones which I rather liked!

Thank you for all your very kind comments regarding Angela's graduation photograph, and my apologies for not getting in here as much as I used to due to work commitments. I do pop in occasionally and when I do, I enjoy so much looking at all your work, even if I don't get to leave many comments.

Have a good weekend.

A good set, balloons are a wonderful subject. The set captures the happiness and release of tension - retirement is the beginning of the rest of your life.

Just thinking the other day, we haven't seen any of your arty images.
This is a lovely fun set. I like the chandelier and lights on ceiling in V3.

V2 for me, it conveys the atmosphere perfectly without identifying any of the partygoers.
