NYE 2010

One of my favorite places in the city has always been Longfellow Square pictured here at twilight. The statue of the poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, is sitting in his chair just off to the right in this view. I picked this scene to help me celebrate 2 years on the CDPB. I have not missed a day since December 31, 2008. When I started, with a post of the stone bridge in the Oaks during a snowfall, I wondered if I could do it every day. My goal back then was one year, and now look I'm at 2 years and counting. Thanks to all who have checked in and offered their thoughts. See ya tomorrow!


  1. Birdman,
    Beautiful colors, wonderful night shot!

  2. Congratulations! Our blog is slightly older, we started a week earlier...
    Happy 'Birthday' and Happy New Yaar!

  3. I love this capture, Birdman. It's a wonderful slice of Americana with the park benches and storefronts and lighted trees -- very nice. Happy CDP anniversary! Here's to another year filled with eye catching photos.

  4. You've created a blog family in those two years, faithful and true. And how you've grown as a photographer from that first small shot in the snow. And how you've engaged us with your stories. Thank you, happy blog anniversary, happy new year, dear Birdman!

  5. Congratulations! A great way to celebrate by posting this colourful scene.
    Have a safe but happy New Year's eve celebration with good wishes for the New Year!

  6. Magical photo! So glad you entered photo-blog-land and stayed here.

  7. I envy those that have the talent to be creative enough to keep bringing readers back day after day. Not sure when I started my blog, daughter got me to do it since I was retired, but I certainly don't have the followers you do.
    You take some really nice shots and keep it interesting. Congradulations

  8. Such a beautiful spot and I can see why it is a favorite. I love the holiday decorations. Have a wonderful New Year!

  9. cool pic- vibrant portland- 2 years after the first pic post? looks like a hundred...

  10. Congratulations on a job well done! It's been a pleasure to view the pictures and to read your thoughts. May there be many, many more postings!
    Happy New Year!

  11. I so look forward to your post each day. My son lives in Bidderford and Maine is my favorite place to visit. I am able to revisit with your photos, which are always so creative.

  12. Such a de'LIGHT'ful picture.
    Congratulations on your blogaversary!
    A very Happy New Year to you and yours :)

  13. Postcard perfect!

    Thank you for being such a good blogging buddy this year. I don't always get around to comment as much as I like but the city daily photo community means so much to our family! Here's to a great 2011!

  14. You will have at least two reasons to celebrate tonight - your blog longevity and the new year! Good work.

    And this is an excellent photo encapsulating the essence of City Daily Photo!

  15. beautiful shot.

  16. Congratulations on two years. I started Tulsa Gentleman in May of 2008 and have only missed a handful of days with out a post but I don't have perfect attendance. You do a good job, good photos, a good variety, and a minimum of BS. Thank you.

  17. What a festive looking spot. Happy New Year!

  18. I really like this shot. And congratulations on your two years. It can be challenging to keep it going every day.

  19. Great photo, great post. Having a City Daily Photo blog makes for some great moments, shared all around the world. Congrats and Happy New Year!

    If you've got a moment, please visit my special New Year's Eve post at Portland Oregon Daily Photo.

  20. Beautiful shot, love the colours!
    Have a great 2011. ;-)

  21. that is such a beautiful and festive shot! Congratulations on 2 years, that is impressive.

  22. Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've
    had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    My webpage ... make an app

  23. Hi I am so happy I found your weblog, I really found you by accident, while
    I was browsing on Digg for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just
    like to say kudos for a fantastic post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design), I don't have time to look over it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the excellent work.
