In fact it doesn’t make much of a difference that these are the last days of this year and yet, it does. There is this strange feeling in the air of starting new, making plans, getting to closure, moving on, even if none of these are really happening in my life.

I dislike this feeling and I don’t make New Year’s resolutions.

Is this a strange way of thinking? Waiting for Mondays to start a diet or for the 1st of January to take decisions, it’s just not me. I don’t like waiting for anything, particularly for whatever may impact my life. If I have to face unavoidable things, good or bad, I rather do it once and for all.

It is the unsolicited in-between that feels uncomfortable.

These erratic thoughts – so, don’t take me seriously – and shots happened before sunset at Pipa Beach, Brazil.

The sunset was exceptionally beautiful and I posted it yesterday.

I prefer to make sunset’s resolutions.

And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.

Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.

Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.

Some of us, including me, didn’t want to say goodbye, and started feeling the first addiction’s symptoms, as described by inmate Albert nty6x at his blog Passionately Curious.

“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

I had to think of something to resolve this.

Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy,  Terri,  Bampa’s Views, TheBespeak and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.

The Rehab rules are simple:

Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.

Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.

Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you  can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.

How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.

Have fun! And thanks for participating.

  2. Beautiful photos, and powerful words, I agree this whole focus on the end of the year is frustrating and leads to tension and unhappiness as much as anything. That being said, I am busy not making resolutions but carrying them out…right now

          1. Yep I try to do house-y stuff when I’m on hols, it’s fun, I like to nest 🙂 Oh, the end of your hols, always sad.
            The lens is divine, just beautiful. I need to get out and about with it sometime soon. I did some family/friend photos on boxing day with it. It’s lovely.

  3. I agree with you on the resolutions, any time of the year we should set out minds to do things but i guess the new year is a prompt to do so and there is a history behind it. I love these pics, esp the first, they remind me of alien fingers ooer x
