City Light

Today I'm posting my 1,oooth photograph on this my citydailyphotoblog. I haven't missed a day since December 31, 2008. I've tried hard to post just one photo and have stayed pretty true to that, with few exceptions. In my images, I've tried to show off the city of Portland, and some comings and going in my backyard, with a bit of me sprinkled in for good measure. Back then, I had been looking for a project to showcase some of my recent photos when I came across a daily photoblog and the rest is history. It's been fun and quite a challenge some days to get a picture and a few words up and posted each morning. Another piece of the project that I never expected has been all my new blog friends. Thanks to all who have stopped by with kinds words and some laughter. Click!

  3. Good for you! I also started in 2008 (November) and have posted everyday...but as you know, was not able to post just one photo...out of control. Your idea is much better.

You have something special here and we hope you continue telling us stories in word and image for a very long time. Birdman, both virtually and up-close-and-personal, you are a gem.

  21. Your blog is terrific! Congratulations on post number 1000. That is indeed a great accomplishment as I am learning just how much of a challenge it is to be that consisitant, especially while having a busy lifestyle. I think the blog friends part is the best part!

  22. I started ten days before you and I have never missed a day, but my 1000th post will only be next September... Are you counting the photos instead of the posts? My compliments anyway!
    It is always a pleasure to see your pictures and to read your stories!

  25. You found a beauty to celebrate your 1000th with, Birdman. Congrats! We all know it's a challenge to maintain the rhythm of posting daily (I had to give up). I only "met" you recently, but it's been a pleasure every time I drop by (being a working gal, my commenting time is limited). CHEERS to you!

  33. Congrats to you... That is quite a feat... I used to post a blog (with 6-8 pictures) everyday --but now take Sat. and Sun. off. It got too much for me ---and I couldn't keep up with all of the comments.

  36. Wow, 1000 pics. Tomorrow, number 1 of the next 1000. I enjoy your photos of Portland, it's people and sometimes history. It's a great part of our country. By the way have you ever been to either the Muddy Rudder or Otto's? I also ate on a former ferry boat in the harbor where the meal was great.

  37. This achievement shows us it can be done. I share your intentions; but few of us can tell a story like you can, Birdman. Keep on weaving your tales.
