New Book Arrivals

Our postman is always busy this time of year; letters, cards and parcel deliveries arrive frequently. Most of these are presents for friends and family mind you, I don’t want you to get the impression that I receive an avalanche of Christmas gifts from a huge network of super-generous friends. No, it’s mostly stuff I bought from Amazon. However, on Friday something special arrived through the letterbox.

This is my first year participating in the annual Stuck in Plastic “Best of” book swap, and a few days ago I sent my final design off to Apple for them to print into many shiny new books. Those books have now arrived.

I’m glad to say that the pictures look wonderful, and as far as I can tell I haven’t made any glaring spelling mistakes in the captions.

I ordered a few extra to keep as a memento of the year’s photography – it’s nice to look through the photos as a reminder of what I was doing photographically at a particular time. As it turns out, my 12 best photos of 2015 are quite nicely spread out over the year.

I briefly considered doing a themed set, but when I actually ran through all of the photos I’d taken I realised I’d only picked 15 from the year’s haul, and that didn’t leave me a lot to play with!

Next week I shall start shipping them out to the rest of the world. If you’re a part of the book swap this year, I hope you enjoy my little slice of 2015!

Hi again Mike. The address list I received for shipping doesn’t include more than names and countries for your and Kristina’s addresses. Do you know how I can get the other details for mailing? Many thanks. Doug
