Last July I started adding some of my photographs to my (static) weblog, and in Autumn of the same year I set up two Movable Type blogs, one for writing and one for photography (called Synchrony). The latter coincided with buying a Powershot G5, and I was keen to get back into some reasonably serious photography after around ten years of just taking snaps, or nothing at all.
Around about Christmas last year I started having problems with my ISP, so I decided to move my blogs to a ‘proper’ hosting company rather than just use the free webspace provided by my ISP. As a consequence, this blog is now hosted by blogomania (who are excellent). However, one of their conditions is that you must have your own domain name. All the remaining domain names that contained synchrony weren’t worth having, so I decided to rename this site Chromasia.
So, 23 days ago, Chromasia was born. And one of the first things I did was register it on photoblogs.org. Since then 100 people have voted this site one of their favourites, so today is something of a celebration for me. In light of this I’ve spent some time today producing something a bit different from my more recent images. I can’t thank everyone who voted in person (as I don’t know who many of them are), but I can say thank you to those people who visit this site and leave wonderful comments on my images, and those who have discussed my site via email. And I can also thank my wife for putting up with all the time and energy that has gone into this project (including the recent redesign, which has taken up far too much time). And I would have bought you all flowers, but this will have to do instead :-)
So, many thanks to all of you for helping to make Chromasia a success.
