Audrey Hepburn certainly knew how to symbolise the essence of romantic beauty! Beautiful reflection highlighted with the glittering glow of light! And what a beautiful presentation in the second photo! So creative!

Happy Christmas!

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

I now have my two sons pulling the sleigh, but they are struggling. I’ve been told that it’s a big ask for a three and five year old, but I made it this far with a couple of mangy chooks, an arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats! Unfortunately, we lost all bar one wombat over Mumbai (and the sole survivor is exhibiting clear signs of PTSD).

Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/ Winter Solstice/ Hanukkah/ Festivus/ Ashura and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your naan/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!

Audrey Hepburn fut une très grande dame et très belle en plus. Elle nous quitta alors qu'elle résidait en Suisse, pas très loin de mon pays la France.
Très très bon Noël à toi Dianne et bonne année 2012.

A lovely reflection with a beloved Audrey. Happy Christmas to you too.

Hepburn had class as few actresses (or actors) have today.

A nice selection for Weekend Reflections.

They don't make them like Audrey any more. She was so sophisticated. Sounds like a posh lunch.

Dianne I tried to send you an email in response to your comment about Bokeh but the email bounced back. I got the address from your profile which I had to access from your name link on my comments because I can't see how to get to your profile from your blog. There doesn't seem to be a "View my profile" link.
Any way I copied the email and will post it here.

Hi Dianne,

Bokeh is just the term given to the out of focus background that you can create by focusing on something close up and thus using a short depth of field. You will find out more about it when you get a DSLR but you can do it with a point and shoot by using the macro setting.

Have fun. I know you will get hooked. I love your blog and your photographic eye is super.
