12.31.2021 Goodbye 2021…Hello 2022

I imagine most of us were very happy to welcome 2021 after a dismal 2020. I bet now most of us are equally or more pleased to see 2021 in our tailights.  It has ended on some bad notes.  Of course there’s the virus and its offspring.  Lots of fires including the latest in Colorado that has decimated communities and left many people without homes and most of what was in them.  And politically we seem even more divided than ever. On the less tragic but sad side we lost Betty White today. 😦

Personally, this past week, which I took off for photography, has been dismal with dark morning skies, rain, wind, and mud. Tomorrow sounds just like the rest of this past week. I almost made the entire month without creating any photographs, not counting the iPhone, until some fog this morning. They’ll sit for a while, I think.

On the bright side, we get to start over with our fingers crossed for better days.

So after a somewhat depressing intro to this post, I bid you Happy New Year and hope for 2022 to be far superior to our last two years.

  6. What you said about going most of the month without taking pictures reminds me of a couple of years when I didn’t take a single photograph in the slack months of January and February. We have our ups and downs. Regarding your last sentence, let’s hope 2022 will be an up.

    Nothing will dampen my spirits, I’m really looking forward to 2022! Lovely sunny summer afternoon here in NZ and it’s 4.45pm 01 Jan ~and you haven’t yet made it to midnight to finish off the old year! Hope you get a change to some decent weather soon 🙂

    What a beautiful, golden glow you’ve captured. It’s interesting the way the reflection seems ‘doubled’ because of the rocks. Let hope the pleasures of the coming year get doubled, while the troubles are halved.

    Better luck next time and I’m sure you still made good use of your week off if only to rest! 😉 I wish you and Mary Beth a healthy, happy, and creative 2022. It has to be better than 2021!
