The Sun Sets on Another Year

I have loved my 365 project, though it has frustrated me at times, and I have frustrated those I love at times by being a little too photo-obsessed. Thanks to my family for enduring.

Here is the photostream that originally inspired my project: http://www.flickr.com/photos/laserbread/sets/72157612019716787 .

I recently upgraded to an Ace membership, so I'll still be around, posting photos and commenting when I can, just allowing a little more space for the ebb and flow of life.

Thanks @Scrivna for starting this website. I love this community and I love daily seeing photos from all over the world.

Thanks for taking this journey with me. Blessings on you all.
MANY CONGRATULATIONS!! You did it :-) Nice one! Fab pic here, gorgeous place. Enjoy some time out!

this is, of course, exquisite. oddly enough, i DREAMT about what your last photo would be! And it wasn't this - haha. It was a car driving down a highway at sunset. How funny is that? I rarely remember my dreams. And there was your photo! Congratulations. I have so enjoyed your quirky and fabulous photos and comments. See you around. peace to you and yours.

@stepheesue - That's funny. I started my project with a sunset picture while sitting in the rain on the freeway, and I thought of ending it with a traffic shot on the freeway...but then decided to do what I usually do and track down the subject du jour. I just happened to be working in Huntington Beach again, so it was an easy run across the street to catch the sunset. :)

Wowzers!!! Many congratulations to you!! Great photos, can't wait to see what the next year brings! :)
posted January 27th, 2011  
Congratulations Brad. Being a new 365er, I was wondering if you had any tips on getting through the year, other than the obvious one of taking your camera everywhere. What have you learned about yourself and your work over the last 365 days?
posted January 27th, 2011

Congrats Brad. I have enjoyed your photos and comments throughout the year and I am glad to hear you'll be lurking out there somewhere in 365 land. I think I may be doing the same as I complete my 365 project in about a month. Enjoy the freedom and satisfaction of a job well done.

Congratulations Brad. I've always looked forward to your captures and think of you every time I whine about all my gear I pack around. Just tonight I was packing for a trip to Tahoe and am having anxiety at the thought of just having my little P&S (It was either my camera bag or my ski gear). My project is over in about a month and I'll continue to lurk here, so glad to hear you'll be around as well. Time to celebrate Brad! You made it!
posted January 28th, 2011  
Just beautiful - and congratulations!
posted January 28th, 2011  
Wow, you made it!! Congrats! You were one of my first followers and it's been a joy (and a giggle) to see your photos this past year, Brad. Have fun with this next year (:
I think you've redefined what constitutes the "best" camera to have, by the way, your iPhone photos have been fabulous.
posted January 28th, 2011  
Congrats, Brad!!!! :-))) I've enjoyed your project a lot, your witty titles and clever captures! Glad you'll keep posting and commenting from time to time =) As always, mnogo dobro!!! =)

Way to go on making it to your 365th photo!!! I'm so happy for you, and look forward to making it to 365 myself. :-) Fav.
posted January 28th, 2011  
Amazing amazing amazing picture to end on!!! This is stunning. Congrats from me too for finishing your 365!!! do you think you'll do another year? eventually?
posted January 28th, 2011  
@lauren211 - I probably won't do another year of a photo a day, but I'm using the additional albums from my ace membership to continue posting shots both new and old. I have a lot of shots I love and wanted to post before, but at the end of the day I could only choose one for my 365. :)
posted January 28th, 2011  
@bradsworld - I have the same isssue. in fact, sometimes I get so busy I have to post an old photo. I'm going to keep on trucking along with another year... but I'm not going to make 365 first priority this next time around lol well.... maybe by accident ;)
posted January 28th, 2011  
What a cool shot!
posted January 28th, 2011  
I so appreciate all the comments you've left as so many have brought smiles! You're so talented, and I hope to see more of your images in the future. This one in particular is (of course) amazing.
posted January 29th, 2011  
Wow, what a gorgeous view!! I'd sure love to see that in person!

Congratulations on your 365th photo! I plan on getting an ace membership at some point too. Although I still have a ways to go and I have some blank spots, I love this project!
posted January 29th, 2011  
Totally beautiful shot to crown you achievement - CONGRATULATIONS. I am photo obsessed to the point of lunacy - but more other people's than my own, which no doubt shows :-D. However, hope you manage to get a balance with family and 365 ...do you work too?!
posted January 29th, 2011  
What a great year you have had...your photos are incredible and a true inspiration. I love that you shot it all on an iphone and I think this is the perfect 365 day shot, with the pier that you do so well in that perfect sunset :-) Hope to continue to see your work!

It is with sadness that I write this message. Due to one or more misinformed, spiteful, immature individual(s), I will no longer be posting (and will be deleting) photos on my account. Profiles are being created on this site and the person(s) responsible continue(s) to post unkind, thoughtless, ridiculous comments directed toward me on a personal level. I will never understand the mindset of people who choose to behave this way, especially those who will believe/create/say things about a person they do not even know. I apologize for posting this on your photo comments, but I could think of no other way to get a message to my ‘followers’. Posting a new photo for the day with this information would not work, since one of the fake profiles is actually still ‘following’ me. I just wanted to say I am thankful for all I have learned on this site from so many. Thank you for your comments, suggestions and support. I am glad for the opportunity to have gotten to ‘know you’ through your photos and words. What a great bunch of people in this community! This experience has been an honor and a pleasure. ~God bless you, Kris
