4 years old

365 to 42, the number of days to my 42nd birthday, little did I known when I started this blog to mark a year of my life I would be changing the course of the rest of my life. The blog is now 4 years old (and me a bit more) and has been joined by 3 more, it has long out lived the reason it was started for and has become the catalyst for a number of major changes in my life.

When I started the blog I was in a dead end job, actually off work with stress and lacking any self confidence or self worth. Photography had been a hobby for years with the pictures I took never seeing the light of day mainly because I had no faith in my ability.

Four years on and I'm into my second year as a professional photographer, confident in my work and looking forward to the future. Mostly the result of comments on this blog about my pictures and because I needed to keep feeding it with new and interesting images.

But that is only 1/2 the story, the other big force in my life is my wonderful wife Carolyn. For years she has been my biggest supporter and hardest critic and on the anniversary of a momentous point in my life she is also about to change her whole life by leaving her employer of 23 years and going self-employed. I want to wish her all the best in the new career and tell her I will always be there for her, just as she has been for me.

For more information on what Caz is doing here are her web site and blog.
