500 but who's counting

Butternut Squash, Studies and Abstractions, East Conway, NH, October 2, 2003

Google tells me that I've made 500 blog posts over the last ten years. My records show 470 so we can agree on two things: it's a lot and I can't count. My first post was in 2006 but I only did a handful. Then in 2009 I got after it and haven't missed a post since. Topped out at 74 a couple of years when I was an undisciplined young man.

For this post I want to do something to recognize your endurance. It can't have been easy.

Here beginning with "Butternut Squash" above, it's the one I think of as the seminal image in my return to photography, are a few oh so carefully chosen photographs that trace my ascendancy from a total novice I was to the total novice I am today.

The captions tell the tale. You'll find the title, the name of the series of which the image was the first and location and date. I hope you'll click on the image in your email notice so you can see each one full size. As always your comments are most appreciated. Thanks for watching.

Thanks for the kind words, Terry. Ten years goes by in a nanosecond.

What a gift you have! It gives me overwhelming joy to look at my old music partner's art and to feel some of what you must have been feeling along the way as reflected in your work. Do keep it up, do keep making these posts!

Congratulations on 500 blogs, more or less (but who's counting)! Wonderful to see some of your best, but I do not remember seeing the portrait of John Snyder which is stunning. Years do go by in nanoseconds, particularly this one. Keep up the good work and keep inspiring!
