Well it's time to put on the party shirt, grab a party popper, get drunk and say goodbye to yet another erratic year. Other than the shirt and the popper, that's my annual ritual.
I could go on about the HUGE events of 2008 but I am pretty sure that's being done in places that take that kind of thing seriously rather than an art website. What I will say though is that 2008 was the year that I learned there is more to photography than setting a camera to "idiot mode" and pushing a button.
Since I got my new DSLR in March, I have literally taken hundreds of photos both horrendous and stuff I think is of a wall hangable (yes, that is a word now) quality. I have stuck some of the better stuff here and the photos that I am particularly proud of are the ones that you can buy as a print if you want.
The downside is that time gets away and I haven't managed to take anything worthy of posting either here or on my Flickr account in a few weeks. That will change very soon though. Tomorrow is January 1 and I already have a safari lined up down near Sydney airport. Fingers crossed that I get something worth looking at.
To anyone who reads my little journal entries, I would like to wish you a happy and safe New Year. Hopefully our collective creative juices will overflow in 2009 and we'll all be seeing more of each others work.
Cheers friends and keep up the good work.
