15 Years Ago Today…

by on Mar.22, 2012, under Family

… I drove to First Presbyterian Church in my old Miata (with the top down, of course), with my mate Steve Graham all the way from Scotland beside me, and married Nikki. It’s amazing to think how fast those 15 years have gone by and how much has happened – some good (the arrivals of Cameron and Drew, for example), some bad (the departures of my mum and Chas, for example). On balance, however, the last decade and a half has been spectacular and I’m so glad Nikki agreed to be the special person sharing it with me. Asking her to marry me was definitely the best decision I have ever made and having her accept was even better.

In celebration of our anniversary, here’s a portrait I grabbed last weekend during our trip to Fredericksburg (where, not-coincidentally, we spent a couple of days on a mini-honeymoon right after we were married).

Happy Blog Birthday to me

by on Jun.10, 2010, under Photography

Today is the 7th anniversary of the first post to this blog. Back in June 2003, I imagined the blog purely as a way to keep the rest of my far-flung family up to date on news but in the following years, it’s morphed more towards photography than news (not that that’s necessarily a bad thing).

Moving forward, expect more photography articles and tutorials (these are definitely the most popular posts on the site) along with the usual collection of images, background technical information and general chit-chat.

Thanks to everyone who reads the blog – I know you’re out there even if you don’t comment a lot 🙂
