Photo challenge

The lovely Sharni tagged me to do a post with a favourite photo.

I'm not 100% on the rules but if it's a shot that can be taken by somebody else, I'd have to say this one...

My bro and my lovely Lily.  I still think about and miss you everyday!


If it's one that was taken by moi...

 But, technically that one was taken by the main man... Me and Micko on our honeymoon in Auckland (part 2 of the honeymoon coming to a blog near you soon).

My favourite shot, taken by me...

New Year Day - 2005.
Living on the east coast of Australia means we are the second country (behind NZ) to celebrate the changing year.  I was living in Suffolk Park (Byron Bay), the most easterly point in Australia, so technically, it's the first place to see the sun slide up over the ocean this side of New Zealand.

This was a week after the Boxing Day Tsunami - we'd just had one crazy party raising money for the appeal (that's as far as I'll go into it, but let it be known it was ca-razy).  Early in the morning we all headed down to watch the sunrise on another year.

I love this pic for all that it symbolises.

A few hours after, I had a meltdown - due to overindulgence and lack of sleep.  Thankfully everyone moved the party on to the pub (where they were kicked out shortly thereafter)... MESSY!

Here are a few more shots of that infamous night.  I've been quite selective and these are the tame shots - I don't want to incriminate the innocent (you know who you guys are - and you're not so innocent)

Started off innocently enough... arvo brews in the yard.


and ended innocently enough... sunrise at Suffolk.  It's the inbetween that was concerning!


Look at my plump cheeks... skin so smooth you could mistake it for a babies bum - what happened?


More of the first sunset... looking down to Broken Head.  This beach was across the road from my house... my beach (well I did have to share)


Contemplative Micko.

And now to tag two of you fab mofo's!

Ummmmm... I pick...

My darling Jandy (blogger and real life buddy who is about to arrive home from a couple of weeks in the US so I'm sure will have plenty of photo's to share - possibly a new fav too - WELCOME HOME SWEET)  from Alis Volat Propiis

And for number two... someone I've only just met might be nice... So I'll go with Kiran - Masala Chica

I'd love to see your fav photo, so even if I haven't tagged you and you'd like to share - link me up baby!

Man, the boxing day tsunami was five years ago now! How scary is that? Seemed like only yesterday!

The party sounded cool though!

I knew you wouldn't disappoint. Sorry I didn't know the rules either!!!

Love the New Years Day photo, so pretty! I'm wondering the same thing about my used to be baby butt's skin, what happened? ugh

Masala Chica said...

Aw shucks Karls! I am so honored to be picked as one of your mofo's. (wiping a tear).

But ok, what exactly happened in between? You can't just say all that and leave us hanging, for those of us who don't go to cool parties like that.

Technically of course you CAN leave me hanging. I'd just prefer you didn't.

Love the pictures. Micko being contemplative was a really nice one.
