Award Shortlist   


By gingerdelight    
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.

Retirement! I do not know the meaning of that word! to me it spells death! There is no such word in my book! get rid of it! we go on until we die!, i'm not sitting in God's waiting room in some so called nursing home! to be treated like crap, I go on and hope I just drop dead! regards Leon.SadSadSadSadSadSadSadGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinWinkWink
