1st anniversary

Today there will be no photos in my post. Last year around this time I received my first ever DSLR camera and my photography adventure has begun. I wasn’t quite sure if this was the right way to pass a plenty of free time that I unfortunately still have but I had to do something aboutit and I went for it. It quickly change to still growing passion and every day I try to learn something new about photography and post processing the photographs.

Then I decided to run my blog where I could display my work and try to learn new things from other bloggers who share a similar interest.ย  The year passed really fast and now I wonder how the next year will turn out….

So far I published over 130 posts with various photographs. I got over 53 thousands hits on my blog and loads of comments. There are 533 people following my work at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ In July my blog was distinguished on Freshly Pressed, some of my work was published inZIN Multimedia Cultural Magazine in Poland. One of my portraits became a photo of the day on plphoto.com. I won 1st and 2nd prize in Landscape photographyย  in competition organized by our Wicklow County Council.ย  My work was published in news papers and recently one of my photographs was also published in Irish Mountain Log Magazine. The story Barbed Wire, including photos,ย  was published in our local Wicklow Times news paper.ย  Also was nominated to many blogger awards and I’d like to say sorry for not fulfilling the requirements afterwards but I’m very often restricted with time, hence had to neglect it :/

Here I would like to say thank you all who visit my blog, like my photos and leave comments. In this place I would like say special thanks to a few bloggers who have left most comments on my blog so far and here they are:

Sorry if I missed somebody here butย  you were the only people who appear on my statistics.ย  Thank you very much for showing your support, every word left here is very appreciated.ย  I will continue my work and I try even harder to improve my photography and hopefully next year will beeven more fruitful ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you all again – Pawel
