Two Year Anniversary

Two years ago I decided to start a little photo blog and share some of my photography. Two years ago on this day I put a first photo on this blog. Interestingly, as a first test post I put photo taken by my daughter. As a good luck charm perhaps. For the first eighteen month I used the default WordPress template and didn’t do any type of customizations, I just posted some photos, some months more some less. About six month ago I decided to get a bit more personal, learned a bit of CSS and customized the look at feel of this blog the way I wanted it. I decided to post at least twenty photos per month and so far staying on focus with it. I’m happy where I am with this blog. I think I have a good number of consistent followers (you know who you are Smile) and a good number of folks who come and go. I hope you come back and bring your friends and family. Please do.

I really appreciate you all coming here day after day. Thank You!

I’m not posting any new photos today. Instead, I decided to post five photos that received the most amount of ‘likes’ from you guys. The five most popular photos from the last six months are:

  1. Congratulations Dmitri! Really great accomplishment and a great blog. I’m not even 6 months in and I’m getting an appreciation for the dedication that you must have to get two years under your belt! Well done!

  2. Congratulations with the two year anniversary!
    From time to time I have a look at your blog to admire your photos, keep up the wonderful work please for another two years at least. I really like your photos.

  3. That is not a bad selection from a great portfolio of shots we have been treated to. Of these I guess my favourite is Sunrise at Mt Hood. Looking forward to what is to come!

  4. Congratulations on your two years. My favourite (I have to agree with #3) is the sunrise. It just shows the perfection of nature.

  5. Congrats on your two year anniversary. You must have a lot of experience now!
    The quality of your work shows your dedication and I always enjoy looking at your posts.
    Keep up the excellent work!

  6. Great idea to step back and take stock of where you are and how far you’ve come. My blog is about a year old, so I know what you mean about a feeling of personal accomplishment. I love the travel theme and enjoy each image as it transports me to a place I’ve either been, or more likely, a place I’d like to visit someday myself. It’s a window to the world! Your photos are always top-notch and very much enjoyed.

  7. Outstanding. Am so impressed with your conviction to your craft. I know I pay attention when I see your stuff hit my in-box. Picture on! Dan

  8. You always present such lovely photos … here is to your next two years of blogging. Congrats on your two-year milestone to date. 🙂

  9. Without a shadow of a doubt you are one of the top 5 people that I enjoy following… I really enjoy your content 🙂 Hmmm… you got me really contemplating upgrading my blog so I can get more control now!

  10. Wow, it’s easy to see why these 5 were so popular. Three of them are absolute favourites. Congratulations and keep ’em coming!

  11. Wow congratulations! I love all these photos especially the first one. I also really like the changes you made to your blog. I would love to learn custom CCS but for me I will have to wait as I have no time after writing my posts to add anything new. Someday though! Great job!

  12. Congratulations!!!!
    These photos are an appropriate way to celebrate your 2 year anniversary. And the very best?! The first. The obvious winner 😉

  13. Just doing catchup with blog-reading and I find these amazing photos. They all look great, I think my favourite is the Seattle Lights (perhaps because I’m a sucker for the colour blue), even though I’m a rural person by nature. Congrats on your 2 years.

  14. Congratulations – 2 years is an awesome milestone! Slowly working my way to 1.
    Love your work – definitely worth being proud of! You are very talented.

  15. I am constantly amazed at how many alleged photography blogs feature poor pictures. After looking at your I wonder if I should give up! awesome shots, well done.
