Today is a special day for me, 151st day at the Daily gallery! It has been a terrific experience, sharing my pictures, getting favorable comments, some of them making it to the Daily as well as All Time Popular top 1000 pictures! While that's been gratifying, it's been a learning experience coming across some great work from the members here. I have learnt & tried new techniques with personal encouragement from a very helpful bunch of people of this grand gallery.
I must confess that when I joined the community I was not aware that one had to take & post a photo everyday. This is practically not possible for me because of my working hours, lack of photo opportunities & health; so I have tried to shoot on Sundays and other days as much as possible. To fill the gaps, I've posted pictures from my collections and hope I'll be excused for that.
Along the way I have made good friends, some of them on a personal basis too. What I like about this gallery is the personal touch, sharing not only images but also moments of our daily lives, ups & downs, attempts & achievements.
I look forward to continued participation here, getting and sharing joy along the way.
Thank you all.
