We’re Almost There!
Welcome to post #999!
That’s right, tomorrow will mark my 1,000th post and the conclusion of the BIG Photo Contest that’s been running to help celebrate that milestone.
Last night I had the great pleasure to finally meet my long-time friend and fellow photoblogger Rob Jones of Towner Jones Photography in person. He’s been in Syracuse this week for his day job and swung down to our house for a visit. It was fun getting to know in-person someone I’ve exchanged so many emails with over the past couple of years, now. I’ve always had a great deal of respect for Rob and what he’s been doing over on his blog and have really enjoyed seeing the growth he’s experienced, especially the past few months with the success of the Photowalk shirts.
As he and I had suspected prior to our meeting, we’re very much on the same wavelength both with our blogs and our goals and visions for the future and it’s refreshing to know someone who shares those dreams. One of the things that really drives us both and is starting to manifest itself in interesting and exciting ways is the philosophy of giving back. While that means supporting causes and efforts that are meaningful, it also means paying forward the generosity that we’ve been shown by others within this great Photoshop & Photography Community. We kept coming back to that idea time and again as the foundation of why we do what we do and lays the groundwork for our future endeavors.
It was a fun evening with some great stories and I’m really excited about what we’ve been able to forge. So, thanks Rob for coming by and I look forward to doing it again!
