Thank you all so much for this amazing year!
I must say that you kept me going, motivated and inspired me! I loved to watch all of your pictures and comment on them, it was a real joy.
I started this project with a firm idea in my mind, I think I said it already in my profile: “.My husband thinks I take to many pictures of flowers, trees and plants. They almost never make it to the family album.This place is a good way to legalize my obsession ;-)I'm a Christian and I would like to show everything beautiful in nature.”
But now it’s so much more! I love how I’ve broaden my view on the world, see details, look at light and how I’ve learned to love myself. I really love the selfies-challenges. Mimo came up with them, but really soon she was travelling and asked me to start them for her. No wit really is my competition and I really like how I’ve got to look in a different way at myself.
it was a special year. When I look back at my first month, I can't imagine that people even would start to follow me... But I learned how my camera worked and by looking at your stuff I learned how to make acceptable pictures. Then I got interested in editing more and more. And this last week I was in the Top 20 with two of my pictures! I could have never even dreamt about that when I started this!
I can’t make a list of people that I would like to thank more, because I think it’s the combination of pro’s and amateurs that makes this site so special. And I think you know who you are if I say I’ve met so many sweet, special, inspiring people and made new friends though this site! I love you all!!!
So this is my kiss for you, you deserve it.
Yes, I still had to do some light-painting in my project, so why not now?!? Better late… ;-)
I won’t leave you, I’ll continue. But first I have to take it a whole lot slower, because I really want to make a book of this year with all the pictures in it. And I want to do some other things that I haven’t been doing, like knitting. But I’ll still be here, looking at your pictures and uploading a picture a day.
Ps. I hope my bad English hasn't ever been a problem for you. It's hard to express feelings in a second language.
