NOTES ON MY 100TH POST; LATER, FIVE YEARS OF BLOGGING; LATER, MY 200TH POST

Sunset Over Mordecai Island

This announcement was included in my 100th post to this journal, September 6, 2011, which I began in February of 2009, a bit over two and a half years ago.  I was encouraged to do it by camera club colleagues Denise Bush and Terry Wilson, and it has been an enjoyable and rewarding vehicle for me.  I have posted over 500 of my images, three audio segments linked to images; two video clips; and lots and lots of words.  Although my images provide a raison d’être I haven’t regarded it as a photo blog.  Most of my photography (digital era) appears in my galleries, over 1500 images in some 160 galleries.

Rather, and as befits a journal, most of the posted pictures represent highlights of what has gone on in my life plus some occasional flashbacks and memories of related earlier days.

I have appreciated the almost 14,000 views of my posts and the over 340 comments that some visitors (mostly colleagues and friends) have left about my work.  Many of my posts are revisited well after posting.  Some all time favorites include Charleston and the Low Country Plantations, the 18th and 19th Century Fairmount Park Houses, and Hurricane Earl.  Because even I was having trouble trying to locate a previous post, this past spring I added an index including hot links to jump to a desired post.  The index can be clicked at the top of each page or by clicking here.

Thanks to all for visiting because it would have been a total waste without others finding it interesting.

I think I’ll try for 200.

    Loved it all, Ralph…especially this last one about upstate New York. I was born and raised in the “2 bridges” city of Newburgh. The town has been destroyed but the Hudson and scenery is always spectacular. Enjoyed it all. Nancyn
