Celebrating my 5th Birthday


My very first blog post was on 8 January 2012 and since then I have posted a picture nearly every day. It has been a long haul but in doing it I have developed as a photographer and have met many superb photographers and fellow bloggers along the way. I really feel that many of you have become friends and I always look forward to hearing from you and seeing your work.

This set of photos is taken from January 2012, my first month of posting on Life, Photography & Other Mistakes….otherwise known as smithiesshutter!

My eternal thanks to those of you who keep coming back to say hello and to pass on your encouragement. Without that I would have given up long ago.

Here’s to the next 5 years!

My best regards
