Title • Don't Think. Shoot.

I started posting an image a day on chromasia on February 5th this year, and other than a couple of days when I didn't get my act together and eight days of guest entries when we moved house, I've just about met my aims.

During that time chromasia seems to have become quite popular (my daily traffic is now about the same as I received in the whole of February, which never ceases to amaze me), but the really great thing about chromasia though is that people continue to visit, to comment, to advise, and occasionally tell me where I've gone wrong (more constructive critique please!!) – and that's what makes it worthwhile. I think I've improved a bit since February 5th, and some of that improvement is down to practice, but a lot of it stems from the constructive dialogue I have with you all and the time and effort you expend in discussing and commenting on my work. Thank you.

On which note: I hope you all have a wonderful 2005 and that you'll all be here again this time next year :-)

Oh, and in the absence of a totally stunning shot with which to end the year I thought this one was quite fitting (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere at least):

'Don't Think' about it being cold outside. 'Don't Think' about the rain or the hail or the snow. 'Don't Think' about all the other things you should be doing instead of taking photographs. Just 'Shoot'!!!! :-)
