Well we had a wonderful surprise sprung on us last night. Told only that we might want to bring our camera’s and some sturdy footwear, we were driven an hour or so down the road to Mandurah.
On arrival at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre we were greeted by one of Santa’s elfs and boarded the “Christmas Lights Cruise”.
We then spent two hours slowly making our way through Mandurah’s waterways and canals admiring how the various waterfront property owners had tried to out do each other as the best lit house. As you can see in the images, competition was fierce!
This week’s photo challenge was just that, a challenge…
I thought about doing one of the usual “in the mirror shots” but the lighting isn’t that great in our bathrooms here and I’ve no time to set something up, nor time to head out somewhere swanky just to take a photo challenge shot as we’re frantically trying to prepare the house for final council inspection.
As part of that activity though, we had Alban the Arborist on site today doing some goodness with a couple of native trees around the house boundary.
So, I opportunistically took a close up shot of him knowing I’d appear in his sunglasses as per below.

Here are a couple of additional shots to give some context to today’s film shoot. More will go up in the regular D&A pages when I get time.
