First Anniversary

Today is the one year anniversary of New York Daily Photo! I have put together a small collage of 63 images from the hundreds I have featured on the website over the last 365 days. It has been quite a bit of work - I haven't missed one day and have done all the writing and photography with the assistance of Lucy until mid 2006 and her ongoing support and feedback since then. I would also like to thank photographer and friend Bill for his continuing help and whose passion for photography has been a great motivator. This photoblog has essentially taken over my free time, but it has been rewarding. I have learned things about the city I never knew and I now look at everything with a more scrutinizing eye. I do this for the daily visitors to this site - without your patronage I would not find the effort worthwhile. Thanks!

Great job, Brian. I missed a number of these, but i think if I had to chose, it would be one that I missed--top row, the guy with the guitar. What was the date; I'd love to see it.

Congratulations on the year's efforts, and many thanks for your photos and commentary.

Hello Brian,

Your site is bookmarked in my "daily" folder and I make sure to see it every day. I have been visiting for about six months now. I read the archives. Because of your posting I happily am now a member of The Cloud Appreciation Society. :-) Thanks for enlightening me about that and New York City. Great job and congratulations on the one year mark.

Congratulations, Brian! Your blog is one of my favorites, and I always look forward to it... I just found it a few months ago and am in the process of going back and reading all the old posts as well. You're giving me a new love for this City, and I didn't think it was possible to love it any more than I already did. THANK YOU!

Hi, here is Mario from Muenster/Germany again.
Each day I take a look on your site and I am getting homesick.....

One question: how did you make the collage ? Which software do you use ?

Thanx
Mario

Hey Bri,

I've been 'lurking' your blog for some time and enjoying every image and description in it. As with everything you do it's thoughtful and impeccably done.

Your creativity has found another form that clearly enriches so many.

Congradulations!

Your pal,
Michael

Mme Benaut said...

Congratulations Brian on your first anniversary. The collage is spectacular. One of my favourites is the hawk on the windowsill but I also like the reflection in the glass? ball and the police horse!
Please keep up the good work and thanks to Lucy and Bill as well.
As for the taking over of free time - I can relate to that - I hardly see my husband anymore and I find looking at the DP blogs takes up far too much of my time but it is worth it. Thanks again.

Hi Brian, I've looked at many other daily photo blogs expecting to see similar portrayals of those cities but none compare to yours. Best pictures, best captions. Congratulation on your anniversary.
