  8. Thank you

    On July 26, this blog became a year old. Since the beginning, I hope that I have attracted or introduced an appreciation and a new perspective to photography. It is an art form that that has always fascinated me, and I love sharing it with others.

    Thank you to my followers and anyone who has enjoyed looking at even one photograph. Please do not hesitate to ask a question, submit a photo, or offer criticism or suggestions for the year ahead.

    Cheers!
