When they say time flies, they really aren’t kidding. I received a message last night to say that it was three years ago that I registered with WordPress. Three years?!?! On the one hand, it feels like just yesterday that I sat listening to a professional photographer talk about how he posts a photo to his blog every day, and I asked myself why I couldn’t do the same thing. I didn’t have to be a professional to share my accomplishments. On the other hand, I feel like my blogging friends are family that I have known forever.
I may not blog regularly all the time, but when I do it’s the best feeling in the world to read all of the wonderful comments I receive. Those comments (praise and hints) have given me the self-confidence to continue and have helped me to grow as a photographer, teaching me things I would probably never have learned on my own. Thank you to my WordPress blogging family for making the last three years so amazing!
Now that I’m done with the mushy stuff :), let’s play the mystery photo game. This is a really bizarre one, so let me give you a bit of a hint. Don’t try to think of something you’ve seen before.
It’s very pretty rusty metal in a pretty pattern probably part of a sculpture
You know it’s been nearly a year since I last blogged
then get back to it man–we all miss you!
Ya!! What she said :).
I know I know, I need to force myself
You know what though, you have to wait until you are inspired or it becomes a chore, and that’s no good! I went for months only posting my Friday mystery photo because I just didn’t feel like blogging, and I was busy doing other stuff. Now I find myself into it again, which makes it a lot more fun :). You’ll post when you’re ready.
I’m building up to it
You can get pills for that. 😀
Artwork? And don’t ask me to interpret it. I’m hopeless with modern art and all poetry. And three years. Has it been three years? I think we started around the same time but I haven’t received an email from WordPress. I’m jealous.
It came through in my notifications. I feel so special :). Don’t be jealous – you will get one too!
artwork depicting my chaotic life–this hangs over my bed and has only fallen on my head a few times
Life = Chaos right?
Square tubing off cuts made into art….
Now lets get to the important stuff… 3 years, man you are getting old… and in the 3 years how many posts have you published…. ???? Congrats, it seems a long time… I can’t even remember how long I’ve been going… certainly far less than you…
Hey man, I’m not getting old, I’m getting better :). LOL!!!
All things get better with age… personally I’m almost perfect, (don’t ask Linda)…
As close as you can possibly get :).
It does go by quickly doesn’t it. congrats on the milestone. OK…now on to the mystery photo. I’d say it’s a sculpture. What can I tell you….that’s all I got 🙂
Thanks Edith. I’m so glad that I found blogging. It has enriched my life and introduced me to so many wonderful people. We still must meet up in person one day, you and I :).
hey, what about me?
Yes, we definitely have to get together too LouAnn. Mike talks about you all the time and asks when we are going to meet you :).
I’ve tried not trying to think of something I’ve seen before. Where did the keyb%^% %& 🙂
This looks like some kind of sculpture made with the cut end of steel girders. I’m probably way off base, but my take on today’s pic.
It’s the latest thing in hair removal (you can see one of the strands). It doesn’t work but you never want to bother again. 🙂
Three years, CONGRATULATIONS BUDDY. 🙂 *Sending you a virtual cupcake.* I love reading your blog and taking part in your mystery photos posts, and you’re camera work just gets better and better!
I’m not totally sure what this one is but I love the shot. For some reason I want to say it’s some kind of fancy bin? Either that or it’s a transformers breakfast crispy crunch cereal. But who knows. 😉
Oooh, is the cupcake chocolate? You’re the best, and you’re really good for a girl’s ego :). Thanks Book Buddy. By the way, I love your imaginative cereal answer. It made me smile :).
Good morning to all my very smart blogging friends :). The mystery photo is in fact part of a metal sculpture that Mike and I saw on our photo walk last Saturday. I thought it was a pretty cool shot that would be something different to confuse everyone, but there’s no confusing you guys. Good job!!
I love in confusion–I bask in it–I sometimes bathe in it–confusion is my life!
Well, at least you’re not bored :). LOL!!
oh to be bored!
Congratulations on your three years!!!!! 🙂 And what a cool photo!
Thank you so much :). Time flies when you’re having fun right?
