600 reasons i love taking pictures and blogging

spring street

this is my 600th post here on it's just how i see things!

i wish i could list 600 reasons why i love doing this! but that would be a very long post that i'm guessing no one would have the time or desire to read. {you were getting worried, weren't you? *wink*} but i can tell you there really are 600 reasons... and then some!

probably the best reason out of the 600... "meeting" new people all the time. just two days ago, i discovered that a very good photographer {as well as what seems to be a very seasoned and well-liked blogger } who just started following my blog, is from the town where i grew up and only one town away from where i now live. what a small world this blogosphere is.

i've met so many bloggers from all over the world. even some in person. it really is one of the best parts of being a blogger/photographer.

so though i do not have time to list the 600 reasons {which would include all the blogs in my blog roll and links to anyone who has ever left me a thoughtful comment here }, i hope you will believe me when i say, this photography blog is one of the best things i have ever found in my life. it is ever evolving, as am i. it is hopefully growing, as i hope to personally grow. it has opened an entire new world of creativity and expression for me. it was {and still is } my first real avenue and outlet for so much creative expression that was pent up in me for years that was just waiting to get out.

it might seem silly to be so celebratory over such an insignificant milestone in the grand picture of this world and its events. but it is so important to me. and furthermore, i can't say thank you enough to anyone who has shared it with me in any way, shape or form. if i blogged and only my eyes ever laid sight on this blog, i would still love to do it! but it's that much more sweet to get to share it with others.

as i am going through a more solitary stage or phase these days {by choice and necessity }, i can only say thank you to all my long-time faithful readers and the new ones, too. you are a continual encouragement, and you would be listed among the top 40 reasons in my list of 600.

so thank you, thank you, thank you. i'm enjoying the ride and the view. i hope you are too!

Unless I'm out of town with no internet access, I almost always pop in to see what you have to say and what new images you've posted. Sometimes I don't comment, but know that you're a mainstay in my blog world.
