Favorites of 2010

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.


Here’s the slideshow…

Favourites of 2009

I’ve added my 2009 Favourite Photos to my collection of Favourites on Flickr. Not a bad year. 42 shots, just like last year, and I’m pretty pleased with the quality and diversity. No night shots, though. I’d like to rectify that this year. I have it down on my list of things to do on 43 Things. I feel quite optimistic about my photography in 2010 now that I’ve bought my GF1.


Family photo

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!
