1/52






"A portrait of my children, once a week every week in 2013.."


Harvey: he spent the entire day walking the rocks and diving under waves.  It was almost cleansing. Washing away a tumultuous year and preparing to start afresh..

Jimmy: his days are always adventurous and fun, and every day of our holidays so far are "the best day of my life.." enjoying the most simple of pleasures..

Eddie: the little guy wanders the rocks cautiously and mostly sits up in the sun shelters with my Aunties chatting away tirelessly.  At the end of last summer he emerged from the sea with a giant crab attached to his foot and hasn't quite been able to enjoy the water since, a funny story to the rest of us..
  

This first week of our brand new year disappeared into magical moments spent wandering family camp sites, lots and lots of laughs and the beach.

I haven't even had my camera out this week, and almost forgot to take any pictures at all.  We've been heading off each day with fresh rolls, a pile of fruit, chilled water and my IPhone, travelling light and just enjoying the monotony of repetitive summer days.

Next week I hope to manage actual portraits.  You can join in and share your portraits here..

    especially that top picture. It does look like an amazing place for kids to explore. I remember a rockpool fixation (the fascination of tiny crabs I think).
