A new year, so time to go through the 4,400 shots I’ve taken this year to pick out my favorites. I was surprised to see that this is the 7th year I’ve done this. 44 images this year, which is pretty much in line with last year’s 42 images + 1 video. It’s a totally random process. I’ve felt a little flat about how focused I’ve been on this activity, despite the new camera I mentioned (and still love) last year. So I’m happy to find that I like the results. Lots more people than normal, and a few shots that are a little more “snappy” than I’d like, but I’m quite pleased.
My friend Karina has set up shop doing really excellent letterpress work in Seattle. Her company is called Miss Cline Press. Highly recommended for that personal touch. I’m particularly fond of her CD case work.
My friend and very talented photographer, Paul Wilkinson (AKA “Wilky”) just won a slew of awards at the British Professional Photography Awards which were held recently in Newcastle.
One of them was for “Parent & Child Portrait Photographer Of The Year” which he won with a shot of Shannon, Maddie and I, taken along the riverbank near our house. Apparently, the judges liked our backs (M not withstanding)
He’s got some coverage up on the ePhotoZine website. Nice job, Wilky!
Funny. I went to have a look at this preview of Geometry Wars for the Nintendo Wii. I’m not huge into these kind of games, but Penny Arcade had been very positive about it. Randomly, I hit the link to watch the video of the preview…and a friend from University pops up to give the demo. Nice one, Rog!
