2008 in Photos

2008 has been a good year for me and Caz. We have been on our adventures (as usual) traveling to San Francisco, Macau, Shanghai, Japan (on the bullet train!) and of course the Olympics in Beijing something that blew me away and I will remember for a long time.

2008 also involved a very tough (both in a physcial and emotional sense) to Sichuan, photographing the earth quake zone, people and some of the dogs that have survived this tragic event.

On the dog front, Padstow and Ivy were joined by a new one called "Mini" who was only 1 kilo when we brought her home. I published a second book for the rescue charity.

On family matters, we saw just about everyone in Hong Kong and back in London Fi and B asked me to be godfather to Finn which I was so very proud to accept.

Yes, all in 2008 has been a good year. 2009 is shaping up to be a tough year with the financial crisis that we have all seen but I can only hope that 2009 brings health and some travel if we are lucky. We are planning trips planned to Vietnam, Bali & Longwo, Osaka, Sapporo (Japan) NYC and Las Vegas... I can only dream of where this adventure will take me next.

New designs are on the way

My main web site has been worked and re-worked throughout most of 2008, and to be honest I am tired of how many times I have said, "its live," only to test it, find an issue or decide that something needed to be changed.

Well, happily the site is finished and you can see the new design here: alibullock.com

The next step has been to re-work (but not redesign) animalsinphotos.com - I have simplified and tidied up the site and all in all I think this site will do really well in 2009 as we get this company up and running.

And, of course as you are reading this blog - alibullock.com/blog you will notice that this site/blog has been redesigned as well.

All in all the idea is to gain some consistency over all the sites I work on. You will see the same logo (Padstow's head) across everything that I work on inluding my presence on twitter and flickr.
