50 — & counting

I didn’t quite mean to get here!

When I started this blog on December 28 last year, the aim was to try and see if I could stick with it for a couple of months and perhaps produce 20 posts. I wanted to be able to write maybe 20,000 words or so, which might give me the impetus to produce a book.  60,000 words or so later, I think there might be a nucleus of something that could lead to a draft by 2017 (the end of this summer is probably too ambitious).  At any rate, I have work for the summer months and beyond.

So to “celebrate”, I’m just going to post some favourites from my own photographs, with no commentary — just captions.  Some have appeared in previous posts but then they were part of a “story”.  Here, they’re just an assemblage of pictures that I take some pleasure in looking at occasionally.

Enjoy!

    • The photo was taken after about 10 minutes of her crowing in sing-song fashion: אני הולכת לנצח! אני הולכת לנצח! And she did!
