Title • a look back at 2008

While I didn't manage to post an image a day during 2008, in fact I didn't even get close this year (228 images, excluding this one), it was an otherwise excellent year.

On a personal note, all our kids are doing well, and while Libby and I need far more sleep than we ever seem to get, we're both happy and well.

In terms of the business: I've already mentioned a lot of the things we'll be doing next year, but 2008 was a good year for us too. The tutorials* are doing well, I travelled to Barcelona, Dubai, and Bulgaria, and I had a number of interesting commissions. I didn't find enough time to blog, but I'm happy with the shots I did post and hope to find the time to post more regularly in 2009.

The really good news though, that I only received this is morning, is that chromasia was voted the Most Popular Photoblog, and was a finalist in the Photoblog of the Year and Best European Photoblog categories in the 2008 Photoblog Awards.

Thanks to all of you who voted for me in 2008, it's very much appreciated, and congratulations to all the other winners. If you haven't checked out their sites before, now's your chance:

Anyway, I guess that's about it for 2008, so Happy New Year and I'll see you in 2009 :)
