five thousand by summerfield

five thousand

ten years, six cameras and numerous lenses, and loads of SD cards. my first dslr, a Nikon D3100 had a shutter actuation of 145K shots, the Canon 60D i use at home has more than 200K shutter actuation, and probably thousands more on other cameras, including my point and shoots, i had used during the 10 years on 365.

everything i know about photography, i learned here on 365. the people had been very supportive and the professionals were eager to impart their know-how to us amateurs. the greatest achievement? the beautiful and wonderful friends i have made, including ann, katy, northy, jaxter and my painting buddies, merrelyn, kali, mike gifford, DD, junko, louise and ken, mara, my old mate danielle greenwood, alia the professor in australia, jann, howard, claireuk, rita, camille, kathy, taffy...to mention but a few, some of them i've met and hopefully i would meet more in the future, all of them inspired and admired. and all because of ross and 365!

gheez, that's a lot of downloading i would need to do.

and by the way, have you used the new "download archive" feature that ross has installed in the project? it looks scary but one day, i would have to try downloading some of my photos and stories posted here.

update: as i consider this a milestone, i am tagging this for week 15 of the 52 captures the theme this week being "celebration".
wow! well done! such an achievement and wonderful journey...gotta love 365!
