Welcome to my morning...I NEVER sleep late anymore. Every day I'm up and on line around 7:00 am. For whatever reason, I crashed until 10:00 am this morning and while last night's dinner with great neighbors and a few more than normal empty bottles of wine contributed, I obviously needed to catch up on sleep.
I'm in one of those reflective moods and just feeling thankful for all of you in my life. I started this business in May of 2009 and people told me I was nuts to give up what they perceived as the greatest job in the world. Well, here I am almost five years later and couldn't be happier. If I was keeping track, it would be in the "Best Weeks of the Year" record book. And here are some highlights...all of the images except the one of Sheila and me are linked to the original post or video - just click if you missed it.
So the words "thank you" carry so much meaning this morning. Thank you - to all of you who have supported this project, encouraged me to keep adding new features and topics, beaten me up when I've gone off course and contributed to helping raise the bar on building an educational resource for photographers! And to those of you who told me I was nuts and should have stayed in my old job...
"I do it because I can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn't."
Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend - This is going to be my post for today and Sunday. I'm just going to spend it hanging out with Sheila! You guys should do the same...no, not hang out with Sheila - just find somebody you love and make it a great day.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
