Just a quick update to say thanks to my friends, watchers and random commenters on here for the support, encouragement and feedback on my work. Apparently people have looked at this humble page over 100,000 times now, so thanks to you lurkers too :)

It’s quite a milestone. I remember when I first signed up back in 2004, I was interested in photography but wasn’t particularly good. I still have a lot of my old work in my scraps if you're interested. But from the feedback and inspiration I found on here, I was able to quickly develop and hone my talent to become the 100,000-pageview-receiveing photographer you see (read) before you. Although it’s really my tutorials and resources rather than the photos that account for those views, but still...

I thought I’d mark the occasion by looking back at a screenshot I took back in 2004 upon receiving my 1000th pageview.

What a great talent from Australia! I saw your Adelaide photo and that was something! You know any schools that accept international students for interior design? :)

Hei... I don't know if you saw my previous message I left in your photo, but here it goes again:

Here I am again to ask you if you would like to be part of DOF magazine issue #6 with this fantastic photo of a black cat.

No need for further explanation, you already know the drill. If possible I would like to have a hi-res version of it.

Thanks, hope to read from you soon!
