Ten years ago today, I began having my morning coffee while hanging out at a blog I'd recently found called Shutterchance. The shot below was my first posting. I saw a theme on the left of the page that listed the theme as poverty so the post was given that name.
From my first blog on I wanted to combine music and photography and have finally found the proper way with the ability to embed YouTube videos on this blog. Far from being 'photographer' I am still a hobbyist and have no desire to change that at all. I think I like Shutterchance best for that reason. There are professional photographers here, post-processing experts, and the likes of myself, all getting along and praising each other's images, different in quality that they may be. It feels like family here. Thank you all for showing interest in my shots over the years. I realize I repeat the same themes over and over (from apple blossoms to soybeans for instance) and yet you comment on them again and again.
I think too of many people who are no longer here. I first came here following Chantal from Photo Friday. Aussie said she came here following me from Photo Friday. Some people just disappear.
This bottom version is sung with Danny's wife, Carrie Elkin in the lead. It is wonderful too. I can't wait to meet you all some day, my friends.
