2013 review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Merry Christmas

Friends, followers, and fellow bloggers have a Great Christmas and Happy New Year

Gold Postbox Cycle Challenge – #GPCC2013

I have spent the weekend supporting the riders on their gruelling 350 mile ride to Penzance.  Great effort by all involved in raising money for MacMillan.  And I managed to take the odd photo along the way ………

I need your opinion….

My recent post More Stones raised some interesting comments on composition.  Thought I would try the Poll feature on wp to canvass opinion.

What do you think…….

Blogs on fire…

I am very grateful to Manoli Rizo for nominating me for this award.  Gracias Manoli.

Not sure of the rules on this one, but as I never follow the rules that is academic.  I would like to mention the following fantastic blogs, which in my opinion are “on fire“.  I encourage you to check them out……

In no specific order:-

Life, photography and other mistakes

Mostly monochrome

Photosteam

Streetpixels

And, if I may, I would like to drive some traffic to a friends blog.  He has only very recently started his photoblog, and has accompanied me on a couple of photoshoots.  He only needs a little of your encouragement to post more of his great photo’s so please visit DerekBayliss and see what you think.

Hello world!

Welcome to my photo blog.  Looking for a project for 2012 and came up with the idea of a photo blog.  No it isn’t very original but I’m not up to doing a normal diary / blog and wanted some motivation for getting the camera out more often than I did in 2011.

So watch this space and feel free to comment.
