Portrait 365 : 355 – 361

December 28, 2014

Final week of Portrait 365… New Years Eve will mark 365 days. I’m all caught up and on track. Can you believe it?

“I’m having a another baby and that means I need to get a new house. I’m excited about that because I want a garden for my kids to run around in.”

Nadia is the amazing jewellery designer at Mondial in The Strand Arcade that helped me design my most treasured piece of jewellery.

“I don’t make wishes, I make things happen. New Years resolutions and wishes go unfulfilled and people make resolutions that are frivolous and unattainable after about a month. I live my life day by day and whatever comes my way I play out.”

Alen then asked me out. I think he may or may not have had a couple of beverages before I bumped into him.

Kate

“I want to know if wireless is safe? Wireless technology was never tested on humans pre-release and I want to know if it’s safe for us. I plan to work with researchers and look into it’s biological effects.”

I spent Christmas lunch with Kate and I really enjoyed her company. Very thought provoking and a bag full of fun. Also, possibly the sanest person in her family.

“The boundaries must stay the same. With young children you set the boundaries and they remain the same. And if they change I think you run the risk of buggering up the child.”

Carl

“I worry that I’m going to be left with nothing for trying to follow my passions. I worry that the sacrifices I make to follow my dreams won’t be worth it. You can choose to always wonder or you can give it a go, I took the option to give it a go, but I hope it goes where I want it to.”

I think any creative spirit will relate hard.

Georgia

Georgia

“I was on my driveway with a boy called Lincoln. I was 15 and we’d been dating for a month. My mum and dad were inside the house with no idea that my first kiss was happening on the premises. It was awkward and I didn’t like it the first time, but we soon got the hang of it.”

Rita

Rita

“I come from a bigger family so I learned never to judge people. As you get older you realise that people are just different. People don’t understand why people do stuff that doesn’t seem logical to them, but it makes sense to them. You just can’t judge.”

Rita is my aunt. When I was growing up she was my favourite, now I see my children instantly warm to her and the way she interacts with them and I know why she was always my favourite.

Richard and Banjo

Richard and Banjo

“What are your hopes for the coming year?”

“Banjo and I were just discussing this. I want an Aston Martin DB7 1982 in pale metallic blue.”

This is one of my fave shots of the year.

    Your Aunty Rita and Carolyn (and our late parents) have cracked the “what’s it all about Alfie” code. Lead by example and understand that all of us came with a different manual, not even we can understand. We can all react in a variety of ways to the same given situation, and different levels on different days, so the lesson to be gleaned is don’t judge, just accept it is a different point of view. You can always agree to disagree, that is everyone’s prerogative.It’s like the word “normal”…..normal compared to what????
    Our parents generation of wisdom, compassion, honesty, integrity and wicked sense of humour should be immortalised in bronze.Your family rocks….SO happy you so capably represent the next generation. Keep it coming Girlfriend!! Believe in yourself, we all do!! You are inspiring, thought provoking and incredibly funny.
    Thank you xo
