~~~~~~~~ -- 2017 -- ~~~~~~~~
I hope you'll indulge me as I post a rare 2nd-post-in-one-day. I thought I was done with my earlier post... However... I couldn't help but feel like the cute little blossom 🌸 scene was perhaps lacking some grandeur.πŸ€”
.
While I don't live and die by "likes" and "comments"... I really appreciate your support by way of double-tapping on my pics or by leaving comments. I pretty much post whatever I want to share without a lot of concern about whether or not Instagram is going to reward me for a particular photo.
.
On January 1, 2017 my account had 8,384 followers. With the "new and improved" Instagram algorithm already in place to impede native account growth I felt REALLY lucky to have that tremendous level of support. A full year later, remarkably, my account has 17,900 followers!!! 😳 That's insane! The growth has been slow but constant, despite IG'S roadblocks. It blows my mind that so many of you have decided to follow along with me on my photographic journeys! Thank you!
.
2017 was a big year. Lost a job, had heart surgery (in that order), moved into the tulip fields while looking for a new job, considered leaving Oregon for a new job... FOUND a new job (thank you Daimler!)... Oh, and I took a few pictures. πŸ˜‚
.
I shot several weddings, countless senior and family portraits, and literally hundreds of sunrises and sunsets. So much fun! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ
.
Thanks for being part of the memories! I think 2018 has lots of new adventures in store!

This was a total sneaker of a sunrise. As I left home this particular morning I was not optimistic at all as I looked at the sky... and the fog... πŸ™„ But I'd arranged to meet a friend at St. Johns bridge so I soldiered out into the morning. At the bridge I couldn't even see through the fog so I climbed higher... And then BAM! Magic happened.

This is why I get out the door so early so often. Check last post for this same magical sunrise from Sandy, OR. Magic all around!
.
I'm tagging only a few people that were part of making this year incredible!
(Oh, and πŸ˜œπŸ“±πŸ’£πŸ’₯πŸ’₯)
