2006 Recap

Seven

Well, since this entry is probably my last entry for this year, I might as well post my 2006 recap. When it comes to photography, 2006 has been a good year for me.

— One of my honeymoon photos made the Utata front page.
— I learned to do my own black and white film development and Troy got me a scanner than can scan both 35mm and medium format films.
— I participated in this year’s World Pinhole Photography Day and one of my pinhole photos ended up being my most popular shot on Flickr.
— One of my Holga photos won a prize in this year’s World Toy Camera Day.
— I got the word this month that another one of my Holga photos will be published in the Winter issue of Lightleaks Magazine, coming out either in late January or early February 2007.
— I got all the cameras I’d ever wanted (this includes a Rolleicord, a Yashica Mat, a Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and a Lomo LC-A).
— I got around to putting together my photography portfolio, even though it’s still very much a work in progress.

Photography aside, this year has been pretty uneventful, except for Troy’s one week of hospitalisation due to appendicitis and my stomach problem. Both were big pains in the backside.

Here’s hoping for a better health next year, another good photography year for me, and an all-around good year for everyone!

That Green Field photo is great. I think the colors turned out perfect.

Wow!
That’s a very impressive year for your photography. You have lots of talent, I think, and are getting lots of experience.
I used to develop & print my bw photos, so I know it can be fun. These days I’m absolutely sold on digital, though. Every time I think of getting a film camera, usually medium format because I used to have a Rollei and would love another, I think of the whole process vs. digital. Guess what? I stick with digital. I’m lazy.
I love your work. Keep it up because it just gets better & better.

Wow, your photography is just sensational!!
I stumbled across your Blog after using your Design Tool to create my Blog! Thank you, it made my life so much easier. Although my Blog is still extremely basic!!
I also have an interest in Photography (I am a Scrapbooker) and have just purchased a Canon EOS400D Although there is a shortage here in Australia and am still waiting for it. I’ve already been waiting 8 weeks, and may have another 4 week wait!
Have fun with your new camera! I can’t wait to see some more of your photos.

My friend brought me cupcakes like those last month. It has crazy amounts of icing. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you a happy new year.
