A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Monday, 1 December 2008

All my life's a circle!



Not quite a circle nor a perfect sphere, but an entirely unnecessary reminder that the Christmas Season is almost upon us.

This photo wasn't taken on the Sunshine Coast, but at Joan's place in the Blue Mountains, where two years ago we spent our first Christmas away from our (adult) children.

While in reality it's just a fancy glass light globe, it's special because of where it was and where we were when I took the photo, for us it's a very personal reminder of the true value of a long and lasting friendship, to say nothing of a fantastic couple of weeks!

Over the coming three weeks, I will attempt to convey some of the flavour of the Christmas Season in Australia. I'm not sure that will be an easy task, but time will tell.

In the meantime for the curious, here's the official Australian Government information page! (I didn't believe it needed an explanation either!)

I had a feeling we would see some Christmas themed photos today. Nice find.

An official paper. Is there nay fun left in anything. You have conveyed both Christmas and the Theme today. I look forward to your interpretation of an Aussie Christmas.

That's beautiful. Was going to post something similar but changed my mind (am using it for Sky watch instead). Interesting, my photos this week are Christmas themed.

Hard to believe that it's December and your photo is indeed a reminder of the season soon to come. I guess I'd better start writing the Christmas cards!
So, here's a pinch and a punch for the first day of the month ...

It's as spherical as it needs to be! A very nice choice in an unusual color, made warm by the story you have.

A beautiful photograph and a particularly touching commentary. Friendship is everything. I agree about the cultural website but perhaps it's written for new immigrants, coming from different cultures?

Sorry I'm late visiting your theme data contribution ... Your photo is very seasonal ... But what I like most is the explanation you shared ... Good friends and good memories.

Happy belated theme day.
