Today is a great Monday. Yes, I could do with another Sunday attached to yesterday to be even happier. Yes, I could do with another Sunday to have a bit of a lie in. Yes, yes, yes, but all things considered this is a Monday to remember. I am happy and light and the world is filled with colour. Just thought I'd drop that in there as I may be returning to a colour theme pretty soon. Hint.
I like hands. I like to photograph them and see how they move and admire them. I like how some are strong and I like the delicacy of others. My parents have the most beautiful hands, really complementing each other. Dad's are strong manly hands, always neat and clean, chocolate brown in the summer; Mum's are delicate and beautiful and naturally tidy. What I love most about hands is how they add to what people say, how they sit quietly in people's laps at times, how they can make you feel so welcome with a single gentle touch, how they tell a story.
:: an amazing weekend.
:: warm gifts in the post. I should be attempting at photographing these at the weekend, the parcel deserves it.
:: Harry Potter final film tonight. Wands ready. I don't have a wand, but I have an imagination.
:: playing with photography and Pedro. good fun.
:: laughing from the belly. do you know that? it's funny. and genuine.
:: planning world domination through cuteness. it's hysterical, I tell you. even if not successful!
:: showing off Oxford to Asia. feels good!
:: sending one word texts to Nicky. you should try.

Little note: the photo represents this summer in the UK in more ways than one... yes, it rains... yes, we still enjoy life and its colours ;)
