Happy New Year, A Quick 2010 Retrospective

A quick post to wish my friends and blog readers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011. As I start another year of displaying my photographs on Flickr and now on this blog, it will be interesting to see where it leads. I have no idea how my photography will evolve this coming year. Hopefully it will be new and exciting and I will improve in ways yet unknown.

As we start a new year, it’s always fun to look back at the past year and see what happened in 2010. One of my photography friends used a service from pummulevision.com to create a movie of their Flickr posts. I thought it was a fun idea so I made one for my 2010 Flickr posts. I have a goal to post one decent photograph per day on Flickr. I’m happy to report that I have met that objective in 2010. So here are the 365 photographs I posted last year on Flickr in less than 1 minute.

I’m not sure if there is any discernible pattern to my photography. I do try to take a wide variety of topics. 2010 has been a busy year for me on the social media front. I started the year just doing Flickr by mid-year I expanded my online presence with this blog and a companion photo gallery. I have also dabbled in Facebook and Twitter.

I brought a lot of photography gear in 2010 which I need continue to use fully and improve my proficiency. I don’t expect to add as much equipment this year — maybe a few lenses or lens adapters for the Sony NEX-5. It might be fun to add some old manual focus lenses on the NEX-5 to see what it can do. I have a general desire to learn and do more off camera flash portraits with umbrellas and soft boxes but I’m not sure if this is going to be the year. I still feel there is a lot to learn and improve on the urban landscape type photographs I have done this past year. We will see.

  1. Nice work Andy! I saw a couple of shots taken on our Austin photowalks. I look forward to more in 2011 – both your shots and some more photowalks! Great work. Jim
