Year 6

Sunday marked the fifth anniversary of Victoria Daily Photo so we are now into the sixth year. Above is the first photo I posted on March 10, 2008 - the photographer's shadow on one of Victoria's many Garry Oaks. I must confess after five years of daily photo posting that I sometimes find it a bit difficult to come up with a photo and a few words every day. And I sometimes think that that is a signal that it's time to close it down. However, I think there is still plenty of beauty and interest here in this city and I hope you will visit from time to time to see what we are finding.

Congrats in reaching five years. I, too, think of closing down sometimes, but I keep going with it. Looking forward to more of your photography.

Congratulations and happy blogiversary! I for one would be gutted without your blog. You are my only daily window to a place that I love and miss very much.

"time to close it down" ..
Nooooooooo !!!

That just cannot happen!
Way too many high quality photos we have become addicted to for it to end.
I can understand the sense of maybe running out of ideas, but I've observed here that once you pick up on a new theme, it inspires you to seeking out and finding many variations on it.
It seems the pre-determined/planned 'approach' ends up yielding discovered subjects that apply to it.
Make sense?

Your photo blog is fantastic and I love how your daughter is sharing your passion for photography. It's wonderful to see all the sights that remain in my memory and to discover new areas of Victoria with you and Fern. Thanks for your dedication and for sharing Victoria with us.

Please don't shut down your site. We really enjoy it. We are from Alberta and have to trudge through months of bitter cold winter and it's so nice to look at the nice Victoria sites during the winter months.
