One Year....And Counting

SDP  5-7-11
One year ago, when I launched Sarasota Daily Photo by posting this photo, I didn't know what I was getting myself into with the City Daily Photo community and the blogosphere. I've invested much more time in this project than I ever imagined and it's paying dividends. My goal was to post photos on a regular basis as a way to motivate myself with photography. Mission accomplished! In the past year, I've discovered I really enjoy shooting birds (with a camera, that is) and sporting events other than tennis. I've also discovered that those of you in the CDP community are amazing. You're pithy, funny, insightful and darn good photographers too. I look forward to seeing your daily posts and learning what's going on in your corner of the world...and showing you what's going on here in Sarasota. Here's to another year of SDP! Now, on to today's photo...

Last night was one of those gorgeous Sarasota nights (75 degrees with a light breeze blowing through the palm trees) that reminds me how great it is to live here. So, to commemorate SDP's one year anniversary, I made a special trip to the bayfront to snap this shot. (The things I do for this blog.)

Congratulations SRQ! I always enjoy your blog, especially the birds. This is a beautiful shot. I really like the way the lights are reflecting in the water. Thanks for sharing!

Happy 1 year anniversary! Your blog helped get me through a horrible winter season by taking me to a warm and sunny place, via your wonderful photographs and your writing. I look forward to another year!

Happy one year anniversary! It was so nice to meet you and seeing another blog from Sarasota. Some areas so close and some from parts I have missed. Now we just have to meet in person!

Hey, happy anniversary, SRQ! I have noticed the growth in your work over the past year. Those spring training pictures were great, although they would have been improved if they were wearing Red Sox uniforms. Today's bridge is excellent.

Happy Anniversary! I was sitting in Two Senoritas last night when you shot this pic, I knew I should have texted you and asked you to join us! :)

Here's to another year!

Congrats on your anniversary. You got a great shot for it, it looks like it should be on a wall at a swanky hotel.

Nice job! And nice blog work! Nobody writes on paper anymore, but I'll send you a virtual paper pad anyhow to mark year one (paper is the traditional way to mark a one-year anniversary) :) Keep it up.
