Back to Blogging

It has been a full year sabbatical, a long rest from regular blogging, and it is now time to return.

The year has been a busy one. The photography industry continues to struggle in full-crisis mode as the transformations wrought by digital image capture and transmission change the economic landscape and undermine the old business models. At the same time more and more people are producing, enjoying and sharing imagery, at home, on the go, formally, but moreso now informally within their social networks. Social media use has expanded amazingly fast (one billion now on Facebook!). And there’s Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. I’ve particularly enjoyed repurposing old and new images on the iPad for posting to my Instagram account (now with over 70,000 followers)

On a personal front, old and new. My father Cyril passed away in December at age 90. He bought me my first camera, introduced me to international travel at an early age, and encouraged my world adventures and growing photography business. Then in January our first granddaughter Rose was born; and only 4 1/2 months later along came Samantha. Two darling delights.

So…Lots of time for thinking. I’ll be exploring new ideas, new directions for my photography and media adventures online over the next few months and look forward to your feedback, comments and support. It’s nice to be back

I have a commitment to me to blog regularly this year.  I admit that ‘regularly’ is a word whose definition is currently under discussion in my head.  Find the time to knock out a few posts a week may exceed my skill set.  I won’t know until I try.  

I will be watching here; so that I can see how the pro does it!

 Welcome back David!! I am waiting for new photos and ideas which you have been taken. If you have any ideas regarding Iceland then please let me know. Because in short time I will plan to visit Iceland in holidays.

Great to read your blog David. I am sorry to read about the loss of your father, however I am delighted to see that you have received the gift of two granddaughters!
