Spock-20121231

The end of the journey...

This is it: I've completed one full year of photos about Mr. Spock. When I started this project on Jan 1, 2012, I had no idea what to expect from it. I wanted to force myself to do something more with my pictures than just let them sit on my hard drive, and I wanted to have a theme that would allow me to keep it up for a year. The choice of a diary of my dog was quickly made, and I uploaded his first picture. A few hours later two people had already commented, and I was thrilled: someone actually looked at my photo and took the time to write something! With every picture I uploaded I got more comments, more followers and more favs. Mr. Spock even made it to the popular page several times, incredible!

During this year several people from all over the world diligently commented on my pictures, and although I'll probably never meet them in person, I feel they have become really good friends.

Now that 2012 is coming to an end, I have mixed feelings. I'm happy that I was able to keep this up for a year, and complete the project, but I'm also sad that it's over. It reminds me that time incessantly moves on, and that things that are over will never come back.

This doesn't mean that my time on 365 is over. 2013 is a new year with new opportunities to take pictures and share them here in this great community. The theme of Mr. Spock's diary is finished though: he had his year, and now he kindly allowed me to post pictures in which he isn't the star :) Of course he will make a guest appearance regularly, after all he's my favorite model!

To end this year I would like to thank all my followers, and dare I say friends, for their support. In no particular order: Carole and Daisy, Mike and Tetley and Tinker, Tony and Paddy, Gerry, Leslie, Therese and Bombadil and Clara, Elyse, Carol, Rosie, Cromwell, Steve and Oscar, Pam and Bear, Barbara and her pack, Monica and Milo, Kimberly and Rommel, Elizabeth and Helen, Bernadette and Cookie, Patricia and Bertie, Maggie, John, Kitti and Bowie and Linda, Reva and Buddy, Sheila and Ladybug.

See you all in 2013!!!

David
