The top 5 posts of 2011, and thank you.

According to the stats, these were the Top 5 most viewed posts of 2011:

  1. My top 25 photos of 2011.
  2. The Voigtländer Nokton 40mm f/1.4.
  3. The Voigtländer Nokton 35mm f/1.2.
  4. The Leica M9… for sports?
  5. Over-processed, not.

Honourable mention goes to the post, The Konica Hexanon 60mm f/1.2, Special Edition, as a late year write-up that proved to be quite popular.

This site started as a personal project in April of 2011 and I only started posting regularly in late June.  In the subsequent six months, I uploaded over 1,000 images and attached brief commentary to most of them (my feeble attempt to see beyond the images and offer some insight into the moment captured).  In the same period, there were over 100,000 views from all over the world…

The truth is, I’d continue posting and writing even if nobody was watching, but it’s nice to know that I’m not operating in a vacuum 🙂

So, to those of you who have stopped by and graced the site with a comment or two, I would like to offer my sincerest gratitude and convey a heartfeltThank you.”

    Happy New Year.

    I originally found your blog on account of the Nokton 40 post while researching lenses, but I keep coming back for your incredibly lovely portraits of everyday. The image of your elder daughter at lunch is something of a visual mantra for me when I get (too often) agitated at “stuff”: it calms, it soothes, it reminds me of what’s real and what’s important.

    Hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you and yours.

    Hi Greg,

    Despite having learned my “lesson” a few years ago regarding what’s important in life, I still find myself getting caught up in (and wound up by) the day-to-day frustrations. It’s sometimes secondary to stress, to fatigue, to… well, to being human.

    The nice thing about photography is that it forces you to slow down and notice things… to smell the roses, so to speak.

    I thank you dearly for your nice sentiments and also wish you and yours a happy 2012!

    The Leica M9… for Sports? – This article when posted on Steve’s site was quite literally the final convincing factor in my decision to purchase the M9 (This is not about blame by the way…..) It really emphasised the versatility of the M9 and I remember being quite mesmerized by the post processing. I only found your site many months later when researching the Hex. Since then I have been enlightened by many more of your posts……….

      Thanks Jason! You have been quite supportive and have been kind enough to share your thoughts here quite regularly… which is always appreciated.

      When I wrote that article, I did indeed want to convey that the M9 is versatile, or, at least, more versatile than many people think.

      Thanks again Jason.
