Full – 10/365

February 10th, 2018: Today we had to visit a local shopping centre to get some bifocal glasses adjusted. I was wondering what to photograph for my 365 project and my husband suggested the carpark building. This was the result.

Guard of Honour – 9/365

February 9th, 2018: Just over a year ago my father passed away. A couple of weeks ago, on the first anniversary of his funeral, some of the family gathered at a local cemetery to bury his ashes and place flowers by the newly laid plaque. We now have two reasons to visit the cemetery as my husband’s late wife was also buried here almost twenty years ago. We returned today with fresh flowers for both their graves.

The tree-lined entrance / exit to the cemetery provides an archway over us as we arrive and leave, like a guard of honour. It’s particularly beautiful in the spring as the flowering cherries are laden with pink blossom and multitudes of tui enjoying the nectar.

Pond – 8/365

February 8th, 2018: For the second day in a row I took my camera to work with me, something I very rarely do. Towards the end of another long day I was able to ‘escape’ and go outside for a short period of time to a specially-designed roof garden. It was mostly greenery with only a few flowers but there was an interesting little fenced pond. It was great to be out in the fresh air with my camera.
