Seven

Petermann Island, Antarctica by Natalie Parker

Seven.  It’s an auspicious number.  Right now it’s an overwhelming sense of . . . overwhelming.

Walking around in the snow this December, I wondered aloud, “how am I going to scrapbook all of this?”  Mr. P and our friend chuckled and we started talking about how I might go about it.  While climbing to a 50m viewpoint.  In Antarctica.

I still haven’t quite made sense of the trip nor how I’ll ever document it.  I did have fun, though, dreaming up what seven photos I would pick for a layout about seven continents (which wasn’t my idea, Mr. P told me such a layout was necessary).

Nary a vacation goes by that I don’t wonder about shots I could have gotten.  This shot is overexposed because the camera settings were off, but I love it anyway.

  1. Wow, wow, wow! So awesome that you’ve been able to visit all seven continents! I hope you’ll post more about your Antarctica trip!

    (and also awesome, though maybe not on such a global scale: Mr. P being involved in your scrapbooking and making suggestions for layouts! ;-))

  2. I am SO going to do this! It looks amazing – although I think my hubby will want it on the wall rather than in an album. Plus we’re still 2 continents missing (he’s been to 1 but I haven’t) – so we’ll just have to book that antarctic cruise!
