Kim, what a wonder you are. What a collage of great photographs. I love the bottom left with bikes and shadows but I can't remember a photo of yours that doesn't impress me. This collage is incredible. And so now it's time to congratulate you on your 1000th post and to thank you for the inspiration you are and for the incredibly generous and encouraging and knowledgeable comments you always give. You are one of a kind, Kim and one talented lady.

I love the 'Fools for Yellow!'

Eye candy to fill all of us with inspiration and wonder. Wow!!!

Congrats on your amazing accomplishments. Here's to thousands more.

Ben said...

Very eye candy. I like second raw far right. It's something form everyday scene, but the perspective caught me and force me to stay there. And the corn, yes I would like to have one of those.

alice said...

So many good memories through your sunny collage! It's a great pleasure to see these photos again. 1000 ? Wow!

Beautiful collection of yellow moments, but my fav is the one of the golden bikes, its superb! Thousand Congratulations. Happy Theme and April Fools Day and thanks so much for your kind visits and words!

brattcat said...

I agree with everyone who has commented so far. I also love those bikes. But some other favorites: the entire second row, and the boats. Yeah, Kim! We are singing a thousand praises to you. And that's no April Fool's joke.

1000 consecutive? Oh wow, Kim, that's absolutely amazing! Congratulations on such a great achievement! But more than that, thank you — for your beautiful images, for your kind-hearted support and comments, and for being an inspiration to so many of us.

Your theme day collage not only shows off your beautiful city so well but is also a reflection of your warm and bright presence in our community.

Looking forward to your next thousand! :)

Knoxville Girl said...

absolutely awesome! Seattle has so much yellow. I still like the corn lady the best.
congrats on 1000 posts; here's to many more.

Kate said...

Kim, you really outdid yourself on this one!! My favorite is the corn cob and the bicyle runs a cool second. You must have had fun putting this all together.

Katie said...

Wow, wow and more wow!! First for your 1000th post, and also for the spectacular collection of yellow! You're such an inspiration as a photographer and a blogger. Keep up the excellent work!!

Kate said...

PS. Congratulations on your 1000 post--quite an accomplishment. An aside: the "slow children" sign always amuses me...is it a comment on their intellectual ability?!

raf said...

Hats off to you, Kim, for that very impressive feat of one thousand posts! Wow! So well done too.
Thanks for sharing all of it!

Your gift of yellow joy today easily brings a big smile. :) Awesome!

Clueless in Boston said...

Wow, 1000 posts! I've got a few more to go to reach a thousand. Great collage of yellow from your oeuvre.

As to your question about the BPD, no they don't use Segways, but they do use horses and bicycles.

lavenderlady said...

That is wonderful! Happy theme day...congrats on your 1000th post...and your photos are a feast for the eye.

Steffe said...

That's a great collage of yellow. Love the mosaic flower.

raf said...

Forgot to mention, Kim, how your wonderful collage of images from the previous years immediately brought to mind the ending of the classic movie, Cinema Paradiso. Priceless!

Neo said...

one word sums it all - IMPRESSED!!

Felicia said...

Hi Kim, what a great collage to commemorate this special day - congratulations! I like the corn and lemon photos - perfect themed ideas. I haven't been visiting much, but I always find your photos inspirational and lively.

Ham said...

The 1,000 is a real milestone - or should that be millstone? OK, not that often, I understand, congratulations.

Love the collage, makes you want to walk into it.

Wayne said...

1000 eh. Well I'll be jiggered!

Do you get a plaque or something?

Is it possible to OD on yellow? I'm feeling woozie.

Tash said...

Now there is a way to provide a yellow visual treat! So much to take in on one page. Perfect.
Congratulations again on 1 0 0 0th!!! I think I saw a lot of the 2008 and some 2007 & 2006 and it'll be another treat looking thru them.

slim said...

Well done, Kim. Congratulations on 1000 posts . . . that's quite an accomplishment and sharing. I, too, like the boat image in the collage and the girl biting down on the corn cob, jumps right out.

LMN said...

I always love a wonderful, original collage! Nicely done. Love it love it!

Bob Crowe said...

Really good idea: a collage of the Emerald City (c.f. Virginia's post today) in its yellow manifestations. Who knew that the Space Needle was that color?

Thank you for your long comment today. Here's how it came about: sometimes I think my brain works like a slot machine, except the reels have a zillion different things on them, not a small assortment of fruits and bars. Pull the lever, spin the reels and see what weird stuff lines up. When the theme was announced I kept thinking yellow...yellow...what does that mean to me? At some point a line from an old song, Bob Dylan's Tombstone Blues got stuck in my head: the sun's not yellow, it's chicken. Then one thing led to another and here we are.

Columbia Lily said...

Congratulations!! This has become one of my favorite sites over the last couple of months...keep up the awesome work.

Gwyn said...

Greetings from Juneau, Alaska!
Nice conglomerate, Kim! It's so cheerful. I would love to have it hanging on my wall especially when it's raining out. A+

Carolina said...

Popped over from Babooshka's place. Congratulations on your 1000th post. Love your photos ;-)

Sally said...

Hi again Kim,

Thanks for your comments. On the collage: I just used the free tool on Picasa, and chose the option that does this (Mosaic I think). You can shuffle them around automatically. I do like the way yours has margins between though. maybe Picasa does all that too, but I haven't fully explored it.

On the health front: getting better!

Sally

lachezar said...

1000! Wow, this is really dedication and persistence! This is a fantastic collage with an excellent choice photography! It really makes my day bright, sunny and a whole lot of yellow fun!
Thanks for your visit and kind comment! By the way, I posted a follow up to show what's under the yellow wrapper! Cheers Kim!

Maya said...

1000 posts! Unbelievable. Good for you!

My god, Kim. I should have known you'd blow everyone else's socks off.

Second: this particular post is absolutely amazing, as are you.

Ming the Merciless said...

Belated Happy 1000th post and theme day.

That is A LOT of yellow photos. I was struggling to find one in my archives earlier this week.

Small City Scenes said...

Whoa, not that is a lot of yellow. I am a bit squeamish now. LOL MB

Virginia said...
