The Last Post ……… Number 366
I’ve done it
sorry was I shouting ! 😀
This is the final post of my 366 challenge. I didn’t miss a day although there were days when I would have given anything not to have to post. As it says on my about page ( mental note to self that I must change that now) I didn’t take photos every day but did post every day. Hats off to those who do the year-long challenge and actually take the photo they post every day. I am seriously impressed by that.
However I am feeling jolly pleased with myself, though I still can’t quite believe I’ve done it.
Here’s a few stats.
I have posted just over 1000 photographs!! Wow !!
A day or so ago I passed the 30,000 hits mark.
I have been visited by 131 countries with the newest being Kyrgyzstan and also a few unknown places. How odd?
My stats say this 19 from Unknown – Anonymous proxy ( what IS that ?? ) 18 from Unknown- European Union, 9 Unknown – Satellite provider, 5 unknown- pacific/asia region and 5 just plain unknown ! I am fascinated by all these unknown places where are they?
During this year I have discovered how much I love being out in nature.
The great outdoors is indeed great with it’s water and animals not to mention it’s landscapes
I love macro photography as there is an otherworldliness in miniature but I also love the hardness of architecture
I’ve even thrown in the odd (very!) self portrait.
Thank you so much to the 342 who follow me and to those who just stopped by for a quick look. A special thank you to those of you who have commented. I can barely remember why I started this blog now.. a whim I expect! but I have discovered there are some wonderfully supportive and fun people out there in the blogosphere.
Bravo ! and I hope you’ve enjoyed this little trip around my world as much as I have.
Some of you will remember my most recent swan photos well I thought I’d finish by giving you a few more but different swans, some taken in Kew gardens and the last one at the river a few miles from my house. There can be no doubt swans are truly magnificent creatures.
Ooooo there’s nothing like a good scratch!
So what happens next? Well, I intend to take some time to learn how to better use my camera! but I still have lots of photos I want to show you so I intend to carry on posting but for sure not every day.. I hope some of you will stick with me and of course I’ll have more time to comment on my favourite blogs 🙂
If you don’t already know my other blog 1500 Saturdays I hope you’ll pop over and take a look here
Several people have asked where they might buy cards/prints of my work so I am gradually adding favourites to my new Redbubble shopping page here
