Tonite was a special night. It was a year ago that we had our first meeting and what a year it has been. Some who started with us left for reasons of life and love. A few just evaporated into the ethos… and that was a bit sad.
But a good group stayed with it till the end. They are the ones that kicked the apathy in the ass and moved hell and earth to be in front of their screens to talk about photographs. Every Wednesday night. To listen to critiques and to be challenged to do it again and make it better.
It is always that way in the things we endeavor. Many start out, and few finish.
I explained on the Project 52 page why I don’t do registrations and signups… life doesn’t make you sign up. YOU show up or you don’t.
“That’s what the people say… You’re ridin high in April – shot down in May…”
So this evening we had a very lively group and we laughed about some things along the way. We had some interesting questions and I must say… it was a bit hard signing off this evening.
Yep – we start tomorrow with a brand new group of folks – all eager to do it. Learn what they cannot find elsewhere. Some of them will not make it through January, and some of them will be with me same time next year when I sign off the 2012 Edition. (I am being asked if there will be a 2013 Edition. I don’t know, but at this point I am leaning to no… I will be doing something else that catches my fancy most likely. We’ll see.)
So here is the Flickr post we are discussing in the video below.
You can follow the critique along by pulling up the flickr page while you listen to me chat about the images. Don’t feel compelled to watch me… lord knows I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
See you all in the 2012 Edition and the intrepid 50 of the PRO Edition.
Special thanks to Dan Fenwick for bringing the pie!
