A road less travelled….Happy new Year!

As the year ends and a new decade begins, I would just like to wish you all a Happy New Year!

Having been in this photography business for over 30 years and discovering that I still don’t have an appropriate festive photo to share with you, I thought I’d approach this is in slightly different way.

I love ‘road trips’. . . full stop.

I love going forward and detest turning back. In fact, I’d rather carry on driving/walking forward even if it takes far longer, than re-tracing my tracks. Over many years, I’ve travelled far and wide covering editorial stories and share Ralph Waldo Emerson’s adage that ‘It’s not the Destination, It’s the journey.’

Give me Robert Frost’s road less travelled, or a long winding road, or, better yet . . . a path leading to a great unknown, to new further journeys, and certainly to the unexpected challenges of a new year.

Recently, I took on a mentor (Jeff Brown) and I can’t wait to work with him in the new year. So new ventures and journeys are already on the horizon!

Last Christmas year we visited the beautiful city of Prague for the first time. This year we went back to Yorkshire, to Leeds, to my roots.

Where will your journey take you this new year?  Will it be a physical journey or a ‘work/career’ journey that you have planned ……..whatever it may be I wish you all the best for 2020!

I salute you-a
