On frozen pond (2)
It is another pond picture today, but this time taken from the surface , which was, despite a slight thaw, still firmly frozen. I was using my new Go Pro Hero 4 for the first time as a stills camera and this would have been an underwater shot had it not been for the ice. I got a number of interesting such pictures in the stream, but none were as good as this.
Photography is now a central part of my daily life and experimentation with pictures (still and moving) interests me more and more.
It is a good day for me to reflect on that for today marks four years of blipping every day - some 1461 continuous blips (the one being the leap year day, of course). In other words I have not missed a day since the 30th of December 2010 and have posted every day from Hogmanay of that year.
Prior to then I had posted 108 blips since joining Blipfoto in November 2009 (just after, I think, the site won a BAFTA which is how I found out about it as I was Culture Minister at the time) but it has been the every day experience of posting that has gradually made the difference in terms of what I see, what I look for and what I learn from here and elsewhere.
The re-designed site makes the experience better than ever so thanks Joe, Graham and the team and thanks to everyone who comments here, or whose pictures I look at from time to time. Now on to my fifth year !
