5 Years of friskyPics

5 years ago I signed up on the very first photoblogging ever called Photoblogs.org and thus friskyPics was born. Its been a great journey of personal fulfillment and discovery and Ive met some amazing and talented people along the way. I started this photoblog without any plans or Big Ideas – just a way to throw my pictures out there for all to see, and to see the logical progression and (hopefully) improvement in my work as a photographer. Ive tried to branch out I dont have a set “genre” of my photography. I wouldnt have it any other way. I want to continue to do all sorts of different styles and push myself to go beyond my comfort zone….

Id like to thank each and every one of you for visiting, viewing, and commenting on my work over the years. You guys rock! Keep posting all the awesome photos that inspire me each and every day.

    Congrats! Keep up the great work. I hear you on the style thing. I have people talk about a style of mine, but I've got some trouble seeing it myself and the idea of being confined to some subject matter is too limiting for me. Cheers!

  • george@minimalistics on 11.12.2009 @ 17:16

    I'm slowly working back through this wonderful archive. So congratulations. Two months late, but better than never!

    And the image - although not a purely minimalist image, it has the same qualities. Edgy. Not immediately obvious. And a good story for the imagination - and a good photograph.
