128,000?1 Am I so out of touch?

...

No. No. It is the children who are wrong.

Hey folks.

So I had my first paid photo-gig not so long ago. It was a big Greek birthday for a lovely 90 year old lady. I stayed all day, shooting it out. And now the photos are up on my blog. There's far too many of them up there, and some need a little more finessing and some need weeding out, but I'm quite pleased with it all.

Not been around on Beex much lately owing to stuff going on - been quite busy! Which is a shame, as I'm missing the Beexing, so I shall potter around here more soon and write more confounding articles on obscure 1950's sci-fi films or whatever.

As ever: http://petetakespictures.com/blog

My limited knowledge of sweet looking elderly greek women suggests that you are now probably engaged to one of her great-great-granddaughters, whether you know it or not.


It looks as if everyone there had a really great time - loads of really natural looking smiles all round!

Hey guys and gals!

The blog still goes, despite a brief post-Berlin pause. There's a new chunky post up where I ramble a bit and post more photos of drunk people. Figured I'd let you know in case you were stuck for something to read during coffee break.

I've found a neat new feature on the blog where I can add a carousel of featured posts at the bottom for ease of browsing through earlier additions. More handsome than the usual side calendar. (Which admittedly my template choice doesn't support. Gngh.)

Let me know what you think, if you fancy.

Wotcha, buddies.

So I dipped into my website's traffic and analytics page today. It had been quite a while since I'd taken a look as I found myself amusingly incapable of predicting what blog post was going to be popular or not in the matter of hits, which is probably for the best, as I'd be writing for an audience and not for myself. Anyway, pleased to see its chugging along nicely with a little milestone passed. Here's the breakdown...

(Visits to date are since records began in Jan 2014.)

Visits this month: 4,512
Visits this Year: 48.4k
Visits to date: 104k

Unique visitors this month: 3,945
Unique visitors this year: 31.8k
Unique visitors to date: 69.9k

So yeah, passed the 100k milestone this month. I have no idea what that proves, or even how good it is in the scope of personal photography website things, but it is ample justification to buy a decent bottle of Nero Mascalese. Anyway, I was wondering how to push it further. I think more content in the form of increasing to two (count 'em!) big blog posts a month and one little one. Also I guess I have to effectively engage with twitter but aaargh.

Do you guys who visit get pinged automatically when I update? Does my RSS Subscription option and Subscribe by Email actually work okay for you? Or do you just direct link check in now and again? Should I be doing anything particularly crafty?

I'm going to be making more content anyway soon as a writer for the Ffoton Wales website and next year some zines. I'd like to maybe kick things up to the point of doing zines and pdf books you can order from an online store a year from now. Who knows, eh? At the very least it'll provide entertaining immerse distraction for me, and with a bit of luck for a few readers too.

Glad to hear it's going well Pete. I tend to rely on your posts here to learn about updates, but do drop by the site from time to time for visual stimulation.

Decided to do this thing on Facebook using a random date generator, where a day between 01/01/2015 and 31/12/2017 is chosen on a computational whim and I have to choose an image within three days either side of the date. Figured I'd post them here as well for relentless self-aggrandisement! To be mysterious I offer no captions, no context, no sepia. Here's the first...
