As the Days Begin to Lengthen.

This time last year I was preparing my first ever photo-review here at 35Chronicle and, at the time, I could never have professed to have known just what a year 2019 was going to be for me. In every sense of the word it’s been an amazing year, and – a traumatically difficult one for the large part. Suffice to say that if you are a regular reader of my pages, you’ll know a little of what I’ve been up to and, subjected to and – you might also realise that as well as those closest to me who have kept me going throughout the year since spring, my love of all things photographic have been my main non-pulsatile impetus to get back out there and, get better. Better in health, at life, at shooting – just, better; in any way I can.

Despite some difficulties in getting back out there (you try shooting whilst holding on to your crutches while your camera bag is threatening to slide forward under the weight of the gear – with the express intent of taking one of your legs from underneath you!) I have enjoyed many excursions this year. Insosaying, I have done my best to represent each month of 2019 (by date of publishing) with what I feel is the one shot that truly made the cut. My cut. I hope I have done enough.

Of course, the whole reason I am writing any of this is because, well – you are reading it. As such, I need to say a massive thank you to a huge amount of people who have been with me this year and without whom, my 2019 would have turned out rather different and probably not as good. Therefore, to loved ones, to friends, to everyone here on WP, and to everyone who has been of support to me throughout the year, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You all know who you are and I forget not one of you.

Please do enjoy this selection of just some of my favourite frames of this year and I hope you’ll join me again in 2020. It’ll be great to see you again. (To H – thank you and please forgive me for my shameless and blatant use of your sign-off. It fits perfectly, expresses my intent to a tee and I truly can’t think of or find a better way to say it. I promise to only use it this once!)

See you on the flip-side, folks!

In Metta.

    Despite the odds, you have produced some amazing images in 2019, through your sheer passion, improvised tools, techniques and imagination. Only an Artist can accomplish such heights.
    I am sure most of your followers will agree with me on this.
    Thank you for sharing your work with us.
    Cheers to you my friend!!!!!!!

    All the very best for 2020

    1. Amar, words will probably fail me a tad, here, but… thank you so much my friend! From obsessions come ideas and I’ve been fortunate enough to have such wonderful tools that have helped me to frame my visions. I have a way to go, I am sure, but I’m loving the journey. Always have, always will. Thank you so much, Amar. Angela and I wish you and Shirley a wonderful New Year 2020! Very best wishes, Rob πŸ™ πŸ“· πŸŽ‰
