Pete's new Internet home

I recently took the camera out for the first time since we finished the blog in December and once I'd loaded the photos onto the computer didn't quite know what to do with them so I created a new blog.

It hopefully won't just be photos on there this time but I envisage that they will make up a large amount of the content.

If you fancy checking it out it can be found here:

see you there,

Some favourites

Here is selection of some of my favourites from Pete's year of photos I hope you like them. Click on the image to see them in a flickr gallery. You can only have 18 photos in a gallery which made the selection process even harder.

You can see all of Pete's blog posts here:

365/365 - The End

It is finished!

I've done it - who would have thought? I've learn't a lot about my photography along the way. I've tried shooting things I would have never looked at before. Fallen in and out of love with my G10 and out and in love with my DLSR. I've learn't that I don't like shooting black and white as much as I used to. I've perfected the "2 minutes to midnight something in my house" shot (find a empty surface, place item down, bounce a flash off the ceiling then go to bed). I discovered that flickr + lego = hundreds of views. But the biggest change I've made to the way I take photos is that I'm increasingly imagining the shot I want before I take it, maybe days or weeks before for photos that need lots of planning or more likely just moments before but either way I try to see it first in my head and then realise it with the camera.

Life has changed a lot over the last year too. The biggest change of course is the new addition to our family she is awesome and I totally recomend that everyone get one if they can. I can't thank my wife enough for her patience with me this year, despite us having loads on our plate she has let me complete the daily ritual of shoot/process/upload (nearly) without complaint.

I'd like to thank my brother Pete for being my running mate in this photographic marathon, I'm so proud of him he has really stepped up his photography this year to meet the challenge of 365. It has also been great being in touch with him daily through the project blog - it is nice to know he's there even though he lives in a different country.

Thanks to everyone who has been looking in this last year, it has been fun doing it and I hope you've enjoyed watching.

365/365 - I made it!

Well I actually made it through the whole year!

I was struggling with what to do today as almost anythign would be an anti-climax, so this shot contains a few of the props I purchased especially for this project.

Right, I'm off to pack away my camera for a few months!

364/365 - Penultimate

I got these from my brother and (for one more day) my fellow blogger here at as a Christmas present.

L is daying I can't wear them for the wedding next year but seeing as she has so far rejected all my ideas I'm going to wear them anyway!

363/365 - Bed time is party time

I have been meaning to get a shot of my daughter's disco ball in action for ages but everytime I go to do it she is already asleep - tonight I grabbed my chance as my wife was getting her dressed for bed.
