Another month has gone, and we’re past the halfway mark on the year. Time goes by at the rate of knots these days, and it scares me how fast life whizzes by.
June has not been a good month. My poor dad has been in hospital since the day before Father’s Day. He is seriously ill with myeloma, and heart problems, and it feels like every day the doctors are finding new things wrong with him. Today is D-Day again, with the cardiologist, haematologist, and oncologist having a meeting on how best to treat him. I just hope that they can start a treatment plan on him very soon. We’ve been to see him twice in hospital, and he’s always been in good spirits, having a laugh and joke as we always do. I would just like him to be able to be at home with mum now, and most importantly want him to start feeling better too.
My montage of photos this month is of family, and yes, that includes our kitty girl, Pumpkin! The photo of my dad and I was actually from August 2016, at my [un] birthday party – the latest photo I have with him. How awful right? The most up to date photo I have with my dad is from nearly a year ago. I can’t even remember one with my mum.
I’ve not included many family photos in this year’s Project 365 – but that hasn’t meant that I’ve not taken photos of them. Photos are a precious thing (to me, that’s for sure) and that has always been why I take so many photographs. I want those visual aids to my memories – and more so for when my memories get a little hazy.
My top three photos this month are:
- Step Into The Light / Project 365 : 2017 – Day 161
- My Blue Eyed Boy / Project 365 : 2017 – Day 162
- Father’s Day / Project 365 : 2017 – Day 169

I’ve been taking part in Project 365 – a photo a day for one year, since 2011. I took a break in 2016, but couldn’t leave the photography project behind completely, and so did Project 52 – a photo a week for one year. I decided at the very last moment, that I would come back to Project 365 for 2017, because I have missed it more than I realised! The project, over the years, has not only helped to improve my photography, but it also became an daily photo diary. I love looking back and remembering the days of the year(s) gone by, and that is one of the biggest things I missed at the end of 2016,
I have quite the archive of photos on my blog, which you can take a peek at below.
