Today I was still on holiday, but the rest of the family was back to work and school. I managed to get some 'me' time to read, sort out some photographs etc. I also read through some of my preferred photography blogs and communities. I felt compelled to express my appreciation of this community. I enjoy the emphasis on photography, and the joy of great gear rather than the hair-splitting gear angst that I read elsewhere. I deeply appreciate the many hundreds of inspiring photographs shared here, not to mention the insights and humble, open discussions. 2010 was a rough year for my family. Hanging on to my love of photography was a great help, and my GF1 brought a lot of the fun back to a craft I enjoy. I am determined to spend more time with my cameras this year, and the inspiration here is a big part of that. Thanks to you all, and a special thanks to the Admins. Wishing you a 2011 filled with the light you desire for you and your camera.
