Today's the annual Christmas Pageant here in Adelaide. So, my family had an early start, as we decided to take the train in to the City to watch the parade.
Hubby and I have been here for about 6 Christmases now. And, this was our fourth time to see the pageant. It was my boy's 3rd time to watch and my li'l girl's 2nd time. It's interesting to see the different reactions each year. 🙂
Anyway, even though it was a bit chilly and rainy, the kids still had a ball. And, that's always a joy to see. Plus, the whole thing didn't feel too overwhelming. Still, we were exhausted by the end of it.
I did manage to take some pics, as you can see the collage here. But, I decided not to upload everything on Flickr. At least, not yet.
The thing about being the unofficial 'family photographer' is that I end up having NO pics during these events. Every time we end up looking at these things, I'm hardly ever in front of the camera, if at all.
Well, I guess that's why having self portraits help. And, writing of which, here are two self portraits that I took today during a quick session.
One's a solo pic of me in black and white. And one's of me and my girl. I really enjoyed the one that I did with us together. I took a few fun pics of us that turned out better than I expected. Hope you like them too...
Have a great weekend, everyone!
