2012 Deck – Week 52


I don’t know about anyone else, but I think this is the way to spend the last weekend of the year, with family and family friends, relaxing near a pool, sleeping under the stars (in a tent), far away from town, and I have my camera, spare batteries and spare memory cards  🙂

Reflecting on the year, it’s been great in some areas, specifically Photography.  Even though my personal photography has not been great this year, and by that I mean I am not happy with the overall amount and scope of the photos that I have taken this year, it’s been a great year for my photography in the following ways;

Neil Marks lobbied and secured for Nikhil and myself the opportunity to exhibit some of our work in a joint exhibition at the National Art Gallery (Castellani House) early this year; our involvement in the Guyana Photographer’s group has brought us into contact with many many talented local photographers, and we have seen the group blossom and grow under the guidance of the Admins and our fearless leader Fidal; the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport revived the biennial art competition (after a 20 year absence) and included Photography as one of the new categories, in which Nikhil won Gold, Sharon won Silver and I won the Bronze medal, I had a photo of mine selected to be used as the Cover Image for Caribbean Beat, the official magazine of Caribbean Airlines (an MEP Publication), and three local firms are using a few of my images in their 2013 Calendars.

If my count is correct this is my 300th Blog post, also an achievement, since I never thought I’d have anything to write that anyone would want to read…of course, the photos help!  🙂  Now, I just have to make 2013 count!  🙂

Have a great Old Year’s Night, and a very happy and prosperous New Year in 2013.

  1. Hi Michael
    Thanks for the photos over the years. Really enjoyed looking at them and sometimes looking at them over and over
    Well man, I agree with your view on how to spend a great old years week end. You did not mention the XM and the Eldorado though 🙂
    Best wishes for a super great 2013. Regards

    1. Thanks Cecil!
      I don’t think there will be a shortage of food or liquor 🙂 But that is secondary to good company 🙂 Have a great Old Year’s Night Cecil!! Show them fellas in JA how Guyanese celebrate the end of a year 🙂
