I need to firstly thank Ross @scrivna, who without all his efforts this would not be the experience that it has been. Well done Ross, an amazing concept and it has been very appreciated.
Secondly, I would like to thank every person I have come in contact with over this project. It has been a great experience and the success of this site is that people, regardless of gender, race, age or photographic ability all come together and share their interpretation of the world through their lens. Bravo to you all.
Thirdly, I have had one regret and that is that I have only highlighted 1700 odd fav's myself. I am blown away by the talent of a lot of people on this site and there is a wealth of creativity and talent that we all can learn from. I know there is many more great shots that I have missed and that annoys me somewhat.
Would I recommend this to other people to do. Heck yes!! It just opens your eyes to what is around you and what is so ordinary and can be transformed.
I'm off to Japan in a few days and I am looking forward to all the opportunities that will unfold. I will be coming back in a limited capacity till the start of next year and then I want to do a full calendar year. Thank you for sharing with me over the past year.
