Tenth Anniversary of this Photoblog

Today marks the 10th anniversary of this photoblog. I’d like to thank my Followers and Visitors for stopping by from time to time to see what I’ve been up to. In particular, I want to thank three people who were instrumental in encouraging me to take the first step into the waters of online exposure of my work:

Deb: A very dear online friend from the Daily Strength health website. Deb confessed to me that she actually was taking my images from DS and using them for background and screensavers on her PC. That confession opened up a dialogue between us that, I believe, was frank and personally helpful for us both. Deb lived in upstate New York. Sadly, in November of 2008 she passed away. I started the photoblog on this date in 2009, four months after her passing. She never got to see this blog take off of the launchpad. During moments, over the past ten years, when I wanted to just pack it in and stop posting, I think back to her encouraging words. It helps me sustain something that I feel is a journey, with no destination.

Sue: I met Sue under similar circumstances on the Daily Strength site. Sue was also friends with Deb on the site, so maybe there was some collusion between those two to make my photography more public. Sue lives in Gloucester, MA. and still, from time to time. enjoys what I create and has kind words for my work. I think she gets the content or ‘vision’ of what I do better than most. Thanks, Sue!!

Dianna: My wife of nearly 45 years. Once I ran the idea of doing this photoblog by her she was all for it. She’s listened to my frustrations over just ‘what am I doing with this blog’ for a decade. She follows my postings religiously and hits the ‘Like’ button, even though I am sure some of my images confuse her :-). Thanks for 10 years support!!fullsizeoutput_495d

Thanks for all of your support!!!

Pigs on Parade #15 Conclusion

This is the last image I have to share of the Pike Place Markets ‘Pigs on Parade’ event. A piggy bank seems a fitting end to this series.

Hope it was enjoyable!

A few years ago the Pike Place Market celebrated its 100th anniversary. One of the more interesting events surrounding this occasion was called Pigs on Parade. Various sculpted pigs were given out to various artists to decorate/paint as they wished. The Pigs would then be placed at various locations in downtown Seattle. I went around one day and photographed as many as I could find in the time frame I had given myself. So, over the next couple of weeks I will be posting those photos. The Golden pig, in this post, was stationed on top of a building in the Market itself.
