Last day of the year — the infamous 2016 — and as usual, it’s almost impossible not to think back to what happened, and decide whether it has been a great year or not.
For me, it’s been a great year. There has been sadness, some difficult moments, yet I’ll remember 2016 as a good one.
In September, my husband and I marked our fifth year in the UK and one year since we moved from London to Cambridge.
Since the first time we visited, we felt Cambridge could have been a good choice for us. During the past year, that feeling has become a reason to be proud of the relocation and the lifestyle we chose for us.
Neither of us is really a big city person, and the perfect mix of rural and urban elements of Cambridge really fits with our needs.
For the first time, we have a garden, which is a great way to understand how everything needs time, patience and care to grow. Noticing the changing landscapes all around us helps to keep a calmer pace, and making the most of what we have.
I’m very happy and still surprised some of my photos have been in exhibitions. It never happened before, and it all started after being contacted by Shutter Hub‘s Karen. Before that, all I did was taking lots of photos and forget them on a hard drive.
One of the reasons to maintain a blog is to use the photos to tell stories and to help me keep going with The Change of Seasons project.
Soon, I’ll be publishing a new exciting project, linked to a great theatrical music album.
