. . . have your attention. I've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you, to stop what you're doing and listen.
Will Ferrell is in my head cos I was told last night about a thing he's doing for charity. He is gonna have a drum off with Chad off of RHCP because someone pointed out to him that they think they're the same person. Or something like that. Anyway, onto the news....
I've surpassed the 600 watcher mark and for that I'm very grateful. I've decided that for every 100 watchers reached I'll do a random little feature for one of them. So the magic number out of the hat (my head) today is - 169. The lucky watcher is Flame-Echidna
And here are some of his deviations that I like -
Go check out the rest
January was a bit slow for favs and I suspect it was due to the number of photographs I posted from my trip to Auschwitz in Poland. I can totally understand why, even if someone likes the composition, framing or technical aspects of the photo, that they would not fav because they are not comfortable with the subject matter. Anyway, the most faved from that particular section were -
Markedly more popular, very much so in fact, have been my series of photographs from the Tatras Mountains, also in Poland. In fact 3 of them have skyrocketed into the top 10 of my most faved photographs to date, with each of them into the coveted 100 plus gallery. These are -
It's also worth noting that my most faved photograph has surpassed the 200 fav mark and gets a "most popular" gallery all to itself for the mean time. So well done to Mr Grumpy Owl Face
I'm only about halfway through my Poland trip photographs. Still to come are more of the Tatras, Zakopane, Gubalowka, the Salt Mines and Krakow
2014 has been flying past, hasn't it? Seems to me like the weeks have gone by without me hardly noticing. My plans to get into portraiture in 2014 haven't been progressing too quickly. I've done one shoot and given my huge backlog, that'll probably get posted in a couple of months. I've a couple of other people interested in modelling but when or where I'll get to do it is another matter.
I also have my eye on another lens. If I get it then it will be my fifth lens but what with buying my car this month and visiting three different countries in May I'm not sure I can afford it so it might have to wait. The lens in question is the Sigma 17-70mm. I want it because the kit lens is SHIT and I want one lens for holidays and "walk around" trips. My 10-22mm lens is too wide and doesn't zoom enough for some circumstances and I have to keep switching it for the 55-250mm. So the 17-70mm has a good range. This will be my first non-Canon lens. I'm not a brand snob and have heard REALLY good reports about it so hopefully will have it this year at some point. It also doubles up as a macro lens as it has a focusing distance of 22cm. So I COULD get into some macro action if the notion took.
Anyway, it's about time I stop boring people with my typed diarrhea and say ciao for now!
