I can't believe this day has finally arrived! After eating and breathing photography day and night for a year - I've reached 365!!! And along the way I've discovered a great deal about myself and the world around me in NYC.
I have my wife (who herself achieved 365 a while back) to thank for getting me involved in this project and helping me to reconnect with my passion for photography and art. I also want to thank my sons for putting up with all the "detours" that I'd spring on them in our travels so I could get shots. There were also many nights I said I'd be home soon and then get lost in photography around the City for hours. So I thank my family very much for putting up with me and for their support.
I also want to thank all of my friends out there in 365 land for your never-ending support and encouragement on all my pics. In fact you've so generously fav'd my pics that they appeared in the weekly Top 20 an astounding 41 times with 5 #1s !!! But don't worry it hasn't gone to my head because I am humbled by the brillant photos I see all over this site each day that may not have rec'd the exposure mine did. I have learned so much from so many of you. I also tried my best to view and comment on as many of your pics as I possibly could and am sorry for times I missed anyone.
It is pretty amazing that while we all come from different walks of life, we share the same love for photography that unites us. Ross @Scrivna - big props my man for putting this all together and letting it do its thing - genuis! I've even had the pleasure of meeting many 365ers in person and converse with others off the project. So how could I just walk away from this fabulous community? Thus I will continue Year 2, but post on a leisurely basis so I can devote time to creating a website, book and pursue my shots more fully. See you around :-D
My final 365 "pic" (of Year One) is a slide show of selected pics from my project. Please enjoy and I hope it works since I'm having internet problems ugh!
