On this thanksgiving I’d like to take a moment to be thankful for all that this blog has given me. I’ve met a lot of great people and have even gone on photo trips with a few. I’ve pushed my photography way beyond anywhere that I’d expect. The relentless daily consumption of photos by this blog has forced me to look at everything differently. I would have walked right past this sad little stick in the past, but now I know how to give it it’s day.
A good artist will tell you it’s about learning to see; that has always been the case in all the mediums that I have studied. But photography is the only one that allows me the freedom to not only capture the moment it, but also to let it go. My painter friends spend days and months on an image, but this daily blog forces an attention that I’ve never experienced before.
I have so much more to be thankful for, but this one I wanted to share with you, the readers of this little experiment without whom I would have given up long ago. And long ago indeed, I blew right past my one year anniversary without a single mention of it and the 400th photo was Tuesday. Thanks to your comments and encouragement, I keep going and looking for more moments to capture. And unfortunately more friggin’ gear.
Here’s something those of us in the States can be thankful for:
Just one more…
Thank George Lucas and his followers for the endless entertainment! Oh, and my friend Paul for sharing this one with me! This guy is an alpha geek and incredible…
