Out with 2023
Another year has flown by and in comes the New Year. 2023 was a good year for creating images after a rather poor end to 2022. Last year had some surprises though with several online services either changing terms of service or just altering beyond recognition. After many years of using Twitter, it finally reached a point of no return. The account still exists but has been mothballed with no activity. Even the Tweetdeck tools I used were put behind a paywall which just added to the reluctance to use Twitter again.
The end of the year did end with a great highlight as I was able to get on the footplate of the legendary steam locomotive ‘The Flying Scotsman’. The light was nothing to write home about but several images were shot while trying to dodge the people wanting selfies and family photos with the iconic loco.
New for 2024
As for 2024, the year ahead will focus on changing some aspects of Richard Flint Photography online. Recently a new Richard Flint Photography store was opened over at Teepublic which, like the Redbubble store, sells clothing, and home goods including wall art, mugs, etc. More work will be added to that website and Redbubble over the next few weeks.
A service that is being expanded to include international orders is the copying, repair, and retouching service. More news on that coming very soon.
Finally, I wish to thank everyone who used Richard Flint Photography over the past year. All that’s left to do is wish everyone a very happy and prosperous 2024.
