GS Night Photography Blog Traffic Jumps 11X!

Last Saturday, the Gorillasites Night Photography Blog was included in one of the most prestigious photography sites in the blogosphere: Mike Johnston's excellent The Online Photographer. This is a great honor, because Mike is very well-regarded among photography collectors, printers and both film and digital shooters. In the past he was the editor-in-chief of the magazine Photo Techniques, and for years he edited the Sunday Morning Photographer column on the Luminous Landscape website.

"One of Brassai's great strengths was as a photographer of the night, both figuratively and literally. Which seems as good a way as any to seque to Andy Frazer's night photography blog. Andy describes it as a niche within a niche, but it's a rich subject, as many photographers (Michael Kenna is one who comes to mind) have learned. If the subject appeals to you, don't miss The Nocturnes Gallery either." - Mike Johnston

Along with his vast experience in photography, and a sharp wit with the written word, he also has impecable taste in tripods (a very amusing a link, that I don't seem to be able to find, right now). Mike is to be one of the few photographers who appreciate the value of the Slik AF210 (now, AF2100) pistol-grip head.

Over the past weekend, Mike's link has increased my web traffic by 11X! Thanks, Mike!
