In June 2008 I uploaded my first photograph to the internet under the name of Candy Pop. It was a shot of my laundry room taken with a Sony cyber-shot, my first digital camera. At the time I didn’t have a computer, let alone wi-fi, so how I quite managed to do this is beyond me!

Six years on and I’m still here, just sharing snippets of my life via this thing called Candy Pop. I guess digital photography allows me to express myself, without the mess of oil paint, or the expense of camera film. I call it the lazy artist’s tool; you just point and click, and if you don’t like what you see you take another shot. After all no one will know!

Thank you for visiting Candy Pop, you are the perfect companion and I look forward to many more adventures with you.

    Congratulations and happy blog birthday! Love all the photos you have shared to celebrate. I know what you mean about the immediacy of photography, so much quicker than waiting for layers of oil paints to dry (drives me nuts, although still a satisfying medium). Hope you continue to have many more happy years here!

      Thank you Jo, I'm quite tempted to start a new canvas, I haven't painted in over five years, and I'm interested to see if my style has changed!

    Your lovely color palette and wonderful images as well as the name "Candy Pop" drew me to your blog to begin with and has kept me coming back for more. It has also been a nice adventure seeing your subtle changes over the past three or so years that I have been following you. It has been a pleasure getting to know you through your fantastic blog and twitter feed! Oh yes you should try painting again! Happy 6th Blog-iversary! ~~ Diane

    Oh gosh has it really been 6 years? Happy anniversary Candy Pop! I love the way you say you just 'point and click' when I think all your readers know that there's so much more to the style and beauty behind your photographs. You are an artist hon and this blog is your medium. Keep doing what you do – love it!! X

    Six years – WOW!

    I am in year 3 of blogging and just getting the hang of making my photos "eye candy" instead of getting the entire scene in the photo. I am having fun learning better techniques.

    LOVE all your beautiful photos!
