It was late on a Monday afternoon after I had finished teaching, and there was a break in the rain (that time of year is the rainy season around here). So, I decided to go out and take some photos. The first place I headed to was a rice field, which is about 5mins walk away from were I live. The photo at the bottom left is of some rice seedlings, they'd been planted not long before. After that I took a walk around the neighbourhood looking for Hydrangeas. Well, I found a few here and there, but they weren't at their best. As I was about to give up, it was then I found these beautiful hot pink ones.
On a side note these two photos made it in to my "Through the Year" gallery, where I show four photos for each month. I've been working on that gallery for a good while now the photos used were taken over a period of three years. Actually I had planned to finish that gallery in October this year, so I could produce a calendar from it and get them out well before New Year. However I got too busy and now it's complete on New Years Eve, when I had no intention of it happening that way!
Note 31/12/2011: The build up to Christmas was very full on for us as we had our final presentations for our English classes. Then we had a church Christmas party followed, by our Christmas service. The day after Christmas we went on a two day trip to Matsuyama and surrounds, which all came together just a few days before Christmas (long story). After the trip was a our wedding anniversary. Finally having a bit of rest over the last couple of days! Wishing all my PBase friends a Happy New Year, I hope 2012 is a good one for you all.
