End of a Year....Start of a New Decade

I think we can all agree that it has been a tough decade and a difficult year

In so many respects

In the photographic world too

At the beginning of the decade we saw the emergence of digital as a fully viable medium

Film once the norm has become very specialist to say the least

We are about to start another new decade

And yes, we are facing another new revolution, the HD DSLR.

We should not be fearful, but should embrace it as soon as possible

It will never replace stills photography but run alongside it I believe

I'm going to share with you all what I discover on my journey

So watch this space

2009 has been a very turbulent year for me

With many challenges still unresolved

I have watched hits to my website treble

And this is in no small part to the followers of this blog

Which, thanks to you goes from strength to strength

Exceeding my expectations all the time

Without you none of this would be possible

So a massive THANK YOU to you all

I look forward to sharing more of me with you

And to meeting some of you at shows and seminars etc

So parting shot from the year?

It doesn't matter what you do but keep shooting what you Love, and Love what you shoot

And just watch yourself and your photography grow

I hope I will remain in 2010, as the blog says...

Happy New Year to you all
