2010 in pictures | Rob Allen's DevNotes

:

Another year is over, and as is becoming a tradition, I like to show off some photos that recap my year!\

January

We started the year with a visit to the zoo!

Lion

There was also snowy weather last January and on the last day of the month, we put our house on the market. We would be accepting an offer on it in late October.

For sale

February

In February, I took pictures of canal boats.

The PHPUK conference was also in February, where I presented a session about Windows Azure and PHP.

Presenting on PHP & Azure

March

I took my best picture yet of Worcester cathedral.

April

April was all about my wife! She had her first tattoo done.

and spent some time in hospital having her appendix removed

Flowers and cards

May

The big event in May was php|tek. I struggled to find a single picture that captured the conference for me, but went for this one.

June

June saw another conference: DPC in Amsterdam.

This photo of Chris Shiflett was also popular:

I cannot even begin to think of a caption

July

Photographically, the main source of all my photos was my aunt and uncle's 40th wedding anniversary, of which I haven't published any of the photos :)

August

I took the kids to the Severn Valley Railway in August, but the main event was our friends' wedding!

Bride and groom

September

September saw the inaugural PHPSW meeting in Bristol.

The audience!

I also tried to take a photo of a glass of red wine with a white background. This proved to be much harder than I expected

October

The Severn Valley Railway's autumn gala was held in October

City of Truro approaches Highley

October also saw the fantastic PHPNW conference come back to Manchester.

Rowan uses an example we can understand!

November

I tried my hand at photographing fireworks

December

The snow really fell in December. So much so that we had to abandon a trip to London having travelled 13 miles in 6 hours.

It's a bit snowy...
