 Many thanks for stopping in to help celebrate SDP's 5th Blogoversary. It is the people I've come to know through SDP and the photo friendships that have developed that have made exploring and photoblogging Seattle's diverse neighborhoods so fun. Up there in the new header photo I've pulled up 5 red chairs from the Olympic Sculpture Park for you to sit in the sun and relax. Perhaps you'd enjoy a little happy hour style appetizer to get the party started, so here is a tiny sampler of some of the most well received of the 1735 posts from 2006 to present. SDP by the numbers in 5 years is kind of mind boggling. Over 525,000 visitors have made 1,058,145 pageviews from 19,488 cities in 200 countries. Over 4,200 are subscribed to the RSS feed, and 653 folks are following through Google Friend Connect. That's a ton of wonderful people! Thank you for your many kind comments and for informing, inspiring me and stretching me in new directions. If you're a longtime visitor or fellow City Daily Photo blogger you may have noticed I haven't been able to visit around to comment as I used to, and my dailiness in posting here has been slipping since my employment went to full time last fall :-). I'll get back into the regular rhythm soon and look forward to sharing many more shots of what catches my eye in this amazing city. Thanks very much!

Your header is the way I like to think of Seattle, bathed in the sun, the way I first saw it. The post today is fabulous and should be a poster for the city!

Congratulations on your 5th anniversary and I am looking forward to the creative and artistic approach of more from you.

Kim, each image in this collage is a jewel. You were one of the first to leave a comment on my blog and one of the first cdp bloggers whose daily photo documents of their cities captivated me. It was a joy to meet you this year and spend time exploring sensational Seattle at your side. Wishing you a very happy 5th blogiversary. Wishing you joy in all you do. Wishing us all many more years of your extraordinary images.

Congratulations Kim... Five times over! You've done such a splendid job of showcasing Seattle, here's to five more! I love your low light shots... we should get together and go 'shoot,' one of these days! :-) Have a wonderful day!

Thanks Kim for all the amazing photos. Your blog is a pure joy!

Oh well done, well done, dear Kim. Your photography/your blog has always been an inspiration to me and you have always been so incredibly helpful with advice, when I've asked. I've said before, your comments always mean so much - they are thought through and I have so appreciated this. Having said that, I comment little these days and note your comments too on the subject. It matters not! Life gets busier and sometimes it's impossible and just taking the photos and posting is all the time we have. I know that...

I love your collage - so glad the bike is included! And I particularly love the new header.

Have a wonderful day and many many congratulations on a job well done!

love Jilly xxx

Happy 5th blogoversary, Kim! Your 4th seems like just a few months ago. Your photos are as magnificent as ever. Not to worry about the frequency of posting and/or commenting ~ I think most bloggers understand how much time is involved, and there's a lot of life out there to be enjoyed. All the best...
