The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 19,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 4 Film Festivals

Although I shoot different kind of photos, I want to dedicate my first post to my biggest passion – the aviation/airshow photography.
It was the year 1989. 80th anniversary of Edvard Rusjan’s first flight with Eda I aircraft and a big celebration of this event with an airshow being held at Ljubljana (Brnik) airport. I was a 12 year old kid back then and although I was interested in aviation since my early days, this was my first airshow. G-2s, G-4s, Oraos, Gazelles, Mi-8s, MiG-21s and first public showing of then-Yugoslav’s finest fighter, the MiG-29.
So 2009 is also 20th anniversary of my first airshow; how time flies by 🙂
