I take a lot more photos than I can ever show here; some are for various projects, some are to record certain things, and some are taken simply for pleasure. So to end the year, I thought I'd show a few favourite, previously unseen photos that sum up 2010 for me.
Sparkles and spangles and ice
The snow fell,
and ducks stood forlornly on their iced pond.
The colour/project/place of the year
Blue was the nail varnish colour for 2010, knitting was the project,
and Hampstead was the place I decided I'd like to move to.
Hands played a big part in my year, as ever. I used them to knit, as guides for my textures book, and to make arrangements with Phoebe on the beach at Aldeburgh. I also photographed the little cousins' hands.

Circles of colour
I grew tulips,
and played with colour. Nothing new there, but colour never loses its brightness for me.
[Steps down at High and Over in Amersham]
I saw some amazing Modernist architecture and the Modernists did staircases and steps quite brilliantly.

[Steps up to the High Line and the very modern Standard Hotel in NYC]
I ate a lot of toast and even photographed some.
I also discovered the fun that can be had with the Hipstamatic app - very useful when I came across the most cheerful red and white facilities I have ever seen. (At the Bankside branch of Leon.)
All the best for 2011.
