500 Ways to Live Your Love

Buck Lake 344On this milesone of my 500th post with WordPress, I thank all of you who have been following my blogs.
Ruby-throated hummingbird 7865I’ve thought about how to celebrate this, and decided to spend most of the day sorting out a dozen of my all-time favorite images.
Grand Marais 'shroom 5310Some of these most of you may recognize, but I’m confident that there will also be some new surprises.
Perseid 12766I love sharing this photographic passion of mine with you and greatly enjoy not only your feedback, comments, and criticisms, but also the fruits of your own photography, experience, and thoughts that you share with the rest of us.
North woods 4087I am frequently amazed by the talent in this imaginative club that we have developed and value highly the friendships that have grown with quite a few of you around the world.
In fair Verona 1896I wish I had the time to spend hours each day commenting in depth on all of your offerings, but my life at this time doesn’t permit that, and I hope you don’t think that—
Canada geese, spring migration5194when you don’t see anything from me on your blog for a week, or even several—I’m not interested in your offerings, because that’s not the case.
Maple and birch 9381I do what I can with the time that I have, and I do not routinely delete notices of your new posts without saving them for a later look.
Leo 1658In fact, some of you will have noted that I’ll comment on an older post of yours that you likely thought wouldn’t be getting any more attention.
Wee jumper 490And so I wish my best to you all, and here’s to (at least) 500 more!

    Congratulations! I, too, don’t have the time to comment on all the posts of this wonderful community. But aren’t we all grand? :-)

    Congratulations, Gary, on reaching this new milestone. Your photography is amazing (I’m in awe of your spider shots), but what really stands out in my mind is the way that you have continuously encouraged and supported me (and undoubtedly countless others) as I endeavor to express myself in my images and in my words. Thanks. Best wishes as you share yourself with your loved ones in your real world and in your virtual community.

      It’s a gift to be able to share experience and feelings with others who have similar interests. I share your love of dragonfllies and your readiness to embrace and turn your talent–and your camera–to whatever else may come your way. What great fun!

  3. They are all amazing as are you my friend :). Congrats on your 500th post and here’s to 500 more!!

  4. You did an excellent job, Gary, in putting together your retrospective. From this half-way point we look forward to the millennium.

    • krikitarts says:

      It’s been quite a ride, all right, and if I have anything to say about it, this isn’t anywhere near the half-way point (except for, as you say, the millennium milestone). I can’t wait to see what the next 500 will bring!

  5. Adrian Lewis says:

      I think we go back at least as far as any others of my active followers, and we’ve developed a wonderful rapport. We can tell each other what we really think without any hesitation that we might cause any offense. And we do. Someday we’ll shoot together!

    • krikitarts says:

  7. Congratulations. Great photos. I have only just come to your blog but just love your work.

      Hi, Elinor, thanks very much for your compliment–sorry it’s taken me so long to acknowledge it. Your blog is really interesting, presenting a side of life that most of us don’t often get to see!
