What a great day, watching so many take part in this event. Every one running for different reasons, but all with a common goal - just to get to the end.  Me - I just stretched myself, capturing the many moments around the course.

I spotted the way this bush framed this bench in a Southampton Park and just wished someone would come and sit there. I waited a while, but no one came so  continued on my way up the path. I was passed by this gentleman who did indeed go to the bench. I calmly turned round, went back to my original position and framed the shot. My wishes were answered.

A wonderful evening spent documenting a 25th Wedding anniversary. This little lovely couldn't wait for the adults to decide it was dance time, so took to the floor by herself.

A new challenge - how to capture movement on a cold wet wednesday evening as a load of mad athletes run round Southampton Common trying to improve their personal best. I think I may have had more fun then they did!

The task was set - My yr7s were to show their understanding of the digestive system in any form - with the best being displayed in my classroom. 
The poem was a joint effort by two of my students.
I then worked with one of them to produce the photo that would be the background. Hopefully this would be a very memorable experience for them both.

It is somehow fitting that the first newborn photoshoot of 2014 is of the same young chap that ended last year for me.  Welcome to 2014 young man. You decided to be an early Christmas present for your parents, who weren't expecting you till mid January. Thank you for being the perfect gentleman throughout both shoots.

Charlie Wheeller ran rings around his young audience today at the Academy's summer school. After a short interview and question time, he showed them one of the things he has been learning at circus school on a cyr wheel. They didn't do courses like this when I was young, I can tell you!

A walk in the forest with Sara and Mike.

This weekend I had the pleasure of spending the day documenting Sara and Mikes wedding, at a fantastic location in the New Forest. How could we not take the chance to do a few shots in the surrounding area.  A wonderful day at a wonderful location, with a wonderful couple

It was such a strange light, just had to find something to bounce it towards my lens

It is sad when I look back on a week and see that the only thing that I was able to point my lens at was my dinner on saturday. Here's hoping it will get better soon

I found myself in an interesting part of Edinburgh this week. Though I'm not quite sure what the mechanical device was for, I know it must have seen better - and busier - days.

The evening light caught my eye as I was driving home tonight, unfortunately I didn't have a tripod to hand, so a nearby bollard just had to do.

Here's the deal. https://www.sharonmerredew.co.uk/blog/2012/1/heres-the-deal
So after two years taking a photo a day and at times genuinely fighting for the time to do so, I have decided to give the challenge a break for a year. But as I am not ready to give it up completely, I have set myself another goal.
So this year I am going to make sure I take at least one great photo a week for the whole year - that hopefully will mean I end up with at least 52 photos that I am really happy with. 

I have to say it has been really hard to break the photo a day habit - for the first time in two years I went for a walk camera-less. It literally felt like I had lost a limb. But never the less I have begun the new challenge. So watch this space for the next photo.

Thank you to all who have commented here or egged me on in person, it has been great to have your support - I do hope you continue this year, its been great to have you along for the ride and it really does help.

Thanks again
Sharon

It has been a long hard slog (and the numbers have somehow gone a little askew in the process) but the challenge is done - another year completed. It has been a great journey - with so many lessons learnt and new friends gathered along the way - thank you for all the help and support this year.
