2010 in photographs

It's the end of the year review time again, and as usual I find myself not really wanting to answer questionnaires or compile lists. After all, the review of the year is really the totality of the journals -- flickr, twitter, tumblr and here, of course. There are new things and good things that happened this year; lots of births and weddings, excitements and changes, and discoveries. On the whole I'd look on 2010 for me as a year of learning, practising, rehearsing, laying foundations, exploring, discovering. It's a pretty good way to spend a year:

it was cold in there

January: Month of crystals and snowstorms, some real, some made of art. This is at Seizure -- half a ground floor flat tuned into a bright blue crystal garden.

Harlequin vs T-Res

February: Month of domestic/romance. This photo was taken shortly before Harlequin was finally allowed out, which was around Valentine's day.

omg nectarine!

March: Month of the Garden. Bulbs popped up, buds burst, and there was a general and pretty thrilling green explosion out back.

65 Tarns

April: Month of visits. Mum and Clive came to Oxford (which is lovely in April) and I got to see her amazing 65 Tarns book.

Dinosaurs unleashed!

May: Month of Dinosaurs. Also music, the first wedding of the season and a revolutionary may day party to remember (and an election to forget)

class system on the river.

June: Month of the tow path. My morning commute became a happy round of rowers, sun, goslings, cygnets and morning drunks.

Ruth's Hen Day 17 (10-07-24)

July: Month of pure busy. This is me on the zip wire at squigglyruth's hen party, taken by elleblue, I was sorting out a destroyed computer and didn't upload a thing all month.

marvels of mirazozo

August: Month of Milton Keynes. I flew owls, experienced culture, rebuilt computer, went to London for more art, did an end of the world workshop at Caption.

round and round

September: Month of the giddy whirl. Second wedding, second hen night, comics launch night, rebuilding the bedroom and skittering back and forth to London, Bath and IKEA.

suggestive shrubbery

October: Month of the imploding career. Things get weird at work; I attend a local government innovation event; write a grant proposal for something I'm not, but could be.

plotting your downfall

November: Month of the family wedding. I give a speech and we have a sunny walk along Bournemouth beach, see a butterfly.

in bondage to winter

December: Month of the deep freeze. Ice all across the Thames, snow, terrifying fogs and glittering hoar frosts. Uncertainty and deep cuts.

Particularly like this format for year-end reviews: a life lived in pictures made.

Sniggered at the penis-shrub denoting October!

I hadn't seen those swirly light-paintingy photos of Ian and Ruth's wedding before. I love them. And great pictures in general.
