As many of you will be aware chromasia has been doing really well in the recentBest Photoblog category of the 2004 Weblog Awards, and I'm extremely grateful to all the people who voted for me – it's much appreciated.

However, over the last few days I've watched various of my fellow bloggers (Justin, Miles and Fredrik), all of whom I respect, ask to be withdrawn from the poll on the grounds that the political views of the sponsor are extremely right wing. So, I decided it was about time I read through some of the blog. And, to cut a long story short, I'm no longer happy to be affiliated with the awards nor the sponsor (WizBang), as I find their politics objectionable and suspect that the awards are quite probably little more than a marketing device.

So, my apologies to everyone who took time out from their days to vote – I now feel as though I've completely wasted your time – but I hope you can understand why I'm no longer happy to be involved.

On a lighter note: the thing I particularly like about this shot is the translucency of the newspaper and, on the basis that I don't have a great deal of time this coming week, I'm going to enter this shot into this week's Photo Friday challenge – Abandoned.
