Toni Ahvenainen has had a busy year 2014, or at least, that’s what I think he had after seeing his “Year of the Alpha” website. Here is the essence of his year-long project:

Idea of this photo blog is to share minimum of 2 photographs every week (Wednesdays and Saturdays) taken with Sony Alpha camera system and a small diary like description go with it.

He has accomplished his goal of publishing at least 104 pictures; his counter is up to 130. In my view, he did a fine job: you can tell that he’s a “visual” person, with a keen eye (he’s a graphical artist and web designer).

A blog is not the best way to publish photos, of course, so if it’s pictures you want to see, head over to his Flickr album (you’ll find the link on his “Photographer” page). But I love reading about how and why he made his pictures, and how he chose the shots for his blog. At times, he will make you think about your view of a photograph or even a photographic meme. That’s why I recommend reading his blog as well.

And no, you don’t have to be a Sony Alpha camera buff to enjoy the pictures ;-)
