Yesterday marked the 365th photo I've posted to SDP, and over 40,000 visitors from 117 countries. Today I hope you will celebrate SDP's one year anniversary by cruising my archives in the sidebar to the right and picking out some of your favorite photos and telling me about them in the comments section. I will compile a "best of set" for the first year from your suggestions. I look forward to starting a second year of daily photos from Seattle. Thank you for your regular visits and encouraging notes this year! It has been so much fun "meeting" you, exploring Seattle from behind a lens, and being part of the City Daily Photo Blog family. I've learned so much about my city and about taking photos in this time and met wonderful people through the process. I've even had local and state publications contact me and buy a few photos. That was a fun surprise for this total amateur shutterbug. Things have happened that I could have never imagined, all through starting to read Paris Daily Photo daily back in 2005. Thank you Eric!
This blog has been a bright spot in a challenging year. Three months after I began SDP, my dear life partner was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. In the midst of adjusting to that news and rolling with the changes in the intervening months as health begins to wane, publishing SDP has been a wonderful diversion for me. Big thanks to my supportive family and friends who must at times wonder if they will ever see me go out the door without a camera.
For today's photo, here is my alter ego, Camera Girl, out walking another neighborhood and snapping my shadow. It's kind of lumpy because I'm wearing a hoodie, a small backpack, and have my camera bag and tripod slung over my shoulder. Thanks for visiting today, and I look forward to hearing what your faves of the year were.
