Nikon D70 @ 50mm, 1/60 sec, f/2.8, ISO 400

Previous · Current · Next

After an early start on Thursday and not getting home from work til the next day, this is exactly how I felt - bored! So apologies for not updating the site sooner, but it's been a busy few days here.

In other news, the daily exposure came 3rd in the best photo/art/poetry category of the best of blogs awards. Slightly disappointing that the judges punted it down from 2nd place after the popular vote (I'm not bitter, honestly!), but still, the recognition is very nice. The guys over there have put in a tremendous effort to put the awards together and, while it does appear to have been riddled with errors and faults, it has been a great success in showcasing some great blogs. That's what it's really all about anyway, and I certainly appreciate the extra visitors it's thrown my way.

Onto the shot... I've not posted this one here before, but I'm sure some of you will have already seen it. I took it at the same time as this one near the start of last year while I was studying for my exams. This series of shots of my gran is possibly my favourite taken to date!

Hello John,

I decided to drop in here and see how you're going. 3rd is nice, but in the regular voting you were in the lead for a long time (had my vote!). Still you must have gotten plenty exposure, that may be a good incentive to keep updating the site.
The granny shots you did are very nice. I would like to add that the shot of your gran in the "flash + underexposure" thread the other day made a very good impression on me as well. Great work. Don't overwork yourself, think of your fans ;-)

cheers, Elmer

Congratulations John. I am sure this a beginning for further recognition. Keep posting. I like the colour grany better. It talks millions.

I love this sort of character portrait. She looks a fun and lovely lady. You're a lucky grandson :)

You certainly get some wonderful expressions out of your Gran, John ;)
Congrats on 3rd place - though i'm sure we all know you were worthy of higher :)

Elmer: Thanks Elmer, always appreciate your comments and encouragement.

And I don't think I properly thanked everyone for all the votes I got... so THANK YOU!!! :)
