I haven’t been active with my photography for over 4 months now. One thing led to another and before I knew it months had passed and my camera remained untouched. Yesterday my son brought in something he had made out of Lego (below). That inspired me to get back to the camera and shoot off a few pictures, just to get back in the frame of mind. Hopefully, with spring here I can discover the joys of photography for 2016!
The parish church of St. Mary Magdalene is a late 11th century Norman church in the village of Ickleton, Cambridgeshire. The church always presents a peaceful and tranquil sight. Inside the church are frescos dating back to the 12th century.

The end of the calendar year always brings about a feeling of nostalgia, a moment for introspection on the year that went by, and hope for the coming dawn in the new year. My year has been a mixed bag with some personal triumphs and professional achievements tempered by the sobering reality of bereavements in the immediate family and a continuing quest for the perfect recipe for contentment with the lot one has been given. I have also seen my son grow up another year and tried to experience the world through his eyes and revel in the minutiae.
As a photographer, I started out 2013 resolving to devoting more time on developing my hobby and sharing these through my blog here and the other place (that which must not be named – FaceBook!!). In this I have been partly successful (life’s commitments get in the way) and there is so much to learn in the coming year.
So here’s wishing everyone a very happy, peaceful and successful 2014. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting and liking my posts!!!
When I started active blogging last year I didn’t expect the scale of the journey I would be embarking on. For me, this was more an exercise in being able to share some of my pictures with a wider audience of like-minded photographers. And it has been a great journey so far!!
WordPress offered summary statistics for my blog at the end of the year which I am sharing. I’m not so much concerned with the numbers or liked but that more that more than 3000 people actually saw a picture or two, read a word or two on this blog!! Thank you!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.
