For this final challenge for 2021 Astrid has selected the word Celebration. It is very topical for this time of the year, many people should be celebrating the New Year but the dreaded Covid has curtailed many celebrations. We usually sit quietly at home watching terrible television till midnight when we watch the wonderful 10 minute firework display from London on the BBC but this year it has been cancelled again as normally thousands of people crowd the Embankment and other viewpoints to watch, ending up with a joint rendering of Auld ang Syne. We watch the fireworks going off around us too as we have a good view of distant houses.
So not having New Year's celebration photographs I have searched my remaining archive to see what I could find so it is rather a random selection this time.
First celebration picture is of our old dog Max's birthday. Looking at the photograph it must have been taken in about 1970. That is Kate on the right holding her black cat Sam with her brother D next to her. I remember they upended a tin of dog food onto a plate and stuck candles on in. Max obliged and age it, candles and all. The other children are her friends from next door with their pets.
The picture is not very good but like most of my pictures of that era it had gone many shades of purple and I have changed it to black and white.
Finally a celebration of new life at Cat Eye waterhole on the Africam.com site. These two baby impala seemed to look so innocent and vulnerable.
Thank you Astrid for hosting the site for us. It has been fun.
Wishing you all a wonderful and healthy 2022. Take care, and be safe.
