This is a wonderful video to end the year! I loved the music and saw some of my favs in there! Congratulations!
posted January 4th, 2013  
Oh, Ellen, this is so wonderful. I remember the shots that started in mid-march when I joined the project. I was so amazed by all of your shots. In a way it was a little overwhelming and I felt so inept. But you were always so kind and encouraging. I will always remember how much it helped. That last shot is SO PERFECT. And I love your choice of music.

I certainly wish you much success in whatever direction you take your love of photography.

Ellen - how incredibly wonderful. . .I can't decide what strikes my fancy the most, but I LOVE seeing all the portraits of the children. I think you have special talent there - you seem to capture the most amazing depth in their eyes and lovely faces. Congratulations for finishing!!

@ellimae I think that support works both ways and you have been a blessing to me as well! I have always felt that 365 should be pressure-free and joyful so I think your move to "take the pressure off" is a good one! I'm looking forward to more of your great shots!

That was lovely Ellen. The train at the beginning looked like it was moving towards me, then I got all teary in the middle with the tribute photos for you Dad. Isn't it a great feeling to complete year one?

@ellimae
I had made photo videos before, but this was the first time I had to load it to You Tube first
posted January 5th, 2013  
@onie That was my biggest problem ..i made it way to long and youtube kept rejecting it so i had to keep cutting out the pictures untill i got it short enough! The only good thing is that facebook took the original so i still have a copy of that one! :)
posted January 5th, 2013  
@onie Loved your slideshow! Your pictures are beautiful! Well Done! :)

Ellen. Lets get the business end of things out of the way first!!! Big, big well done fave for you.

OK. I've just watched your video all the way through. Having downloaded S+Gs greatest hits to my IPod last night, I don't need to tell you how much I love those songs do I? They are a massive part of my childhood.

A few things struck me looking at your slideshow. The immediate thing is that you have a beautifully constructed project for your first 365, a perfect blend of your family, the world around you and things that are important to you. But it goes much deeper than that. There is so much love in your project, I was very moved by it, and a tear rolled down my cheek as I got to the shot where your husband is hugging your son, the shot called Surprise!

You are a lovely lady Ellen. I have made some wonderful friends on 365, many of whom I have a strong affection for. You are up there Ellen. You have taken such time to view my project, and are always so generous in your praise and comment. Yet you have taken many photos that I would love to have taken. Your barns, trains, the love in your family shots, those squirrels, the list goes on. Along with a number of other 365ers, you inspire me, with the feeling in your photographs and the warmth that you pass on with your comments. I look forward to many, many more of your shots, and send you a great big congratulatory English hug. I am proud to be your friend.
posted January 5th, 2013  
This is really lovely. I especially like the one of the children on the bridge. Well done, Ellen.
posted January 5th, 2013  
Congratulations, Ellen! Wonderful slideshow! I love your choice of music, and there is so many beautiful photos. I have enjoyed your words, and amazing photos the past year. You are such a lovely lady:)

Ellen you (and your daughter) did a fantastic job on putting this slide show together - I enjoyed it very much and of course its a FAV! Your photography is engaging and beautiful, but so are you as a person (who has shared so much of your life with us). Thx for the mention its been a joy following each other and happy to read you're still be around :-)
posted January 5th, 2013  
Ellen, this is simply wonderful! I love it! It's wonderful to look back and see all your shots -- and I smile all over again as I recognize so many that I fav'ed! I always think of you when I see a beautiful rural scene with a train! Congrats on a great year -- you helped me along more than you'll ever know. Thank you, and I hope you stick around 365.
