Christine (Ellemford, United Kingdom) on 17 February 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This was snapped at Christmas at my sisters, it wasn't set up. Can you pick out all the things they are interested in. We joke in our house that we need an eight day week!
Drinking
Wine
Eating
Walking
Golf
Photography
Cooking
Watching movies
Reading
Entertaining
To name but a few on the table.

NIKON D60 1/60 second F/4.8 ISO 200 127 mm (35mm equiv.)

I'm very much an amateur photographer. I live in the hills of the Scottish Borders which has fantastic flora and fauna, as well as wonderful light.

Phil David Morris, 2012 from Saskatoon, New York, Canada

Some of my great loves in this exceptionally beautiful photo. Books being one of my
greatest loves, my first from when I was young, to photographs, images always were
highly treasured, wine, good food and some technology always rounding out interests
that we share in common I imagine.

I still haven't rmoved my eyes from the Italian Food book! Actually, it's the food part ;-) This is such a wonderful compilation, Christine! I agree, it IS good to have interests and I certainly know that you two do....Always so nice to see your work and hear (or read, I should say) your words. Especially when I am having a "not so good" day. It's called "Corporate America". Have a wonderful weekend ;-)

@Phil David Morris, 2012: Very cheap! It will probably be bought by a Russian oligarch or a banker! There must be some really interesting pieces in the content sale.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Nothing to hide there - a wonderful healthy mix !
