Another shot from St. Mark’s Place, which I’ll let speak for itself.
Instead let me take the opportunity with less than a week before Thanksgiving to send out some early thanks.
First, my audience, as measured by daily visits, keeps growing. I appreciate that and am grateful for everyone who comes by here, whether regularly, occasionally, or even just once. The totals are not large by web standards but they are moving in the right direction. Thank you, every one of you.
Second, I have a wonderful group of people who routinely stop by and add comments. I love that. I am especially grateful because, although I try to reciprocate at least semi-regularly, I know that most of my regular comment-givers leave comments for me more than I do on their sites. Thank you. I do as much as I can, and do not expect anybody to give more than they receive, yet there are several who do. Thank you again.
Third, the same pattern is true on social sites, especially Twitter. I am spending more time on G+ lately, and have neglected Twitter terribly for a few months now. Yet various folks repeatedly retweet and otherwise promote my work on Twitter. Thank you. Even on G+ I probably receive more than I give. Thank you.
Fourth, it is Friday, which means that my friend Scott Johnson — aka the Toad of of Toad Hollow Photography — has just published his latest weekly edition of photography links at Lightstalking. And he has again favored me by including my images in the roundup. This has turned Friday and weekends into my biggest days for site visits, when they used to be the slowest. On top of that, the Toad, after announcing his retirement from photography, has reconsidered and blogging at only a slightly relaxed pace, which is wonderful news. Thank you, both to Scott and to all visitors he sends here.
That’s a lot, and doesn’t even cover that I keep thinking of new ideas for photos, keep learning, that I have and can afford wonderful equipment, that I’m in a superb group of HDR collaborators, or that I’ve met a friendly and astoundingly talented group of NYC photographers thanks to Google Plus. Plus there is the rest of my life that has nothing to do with photography.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
