My Two-Year Anniversary on Word Press! – Monochrome Madness


Today is my two-year anniversary on Word Press!  I can’t believe how time has flown by!   What a better way to celebrate what being here means to me than to post an image of my good friend, and fellow blogger,  Dan Shehan.  A few days ago we took a drive up Mt. Diablo and it was glorious!  It was a quiet day on the mountain since it was a weekday and my favorite shot of the day was this one….Dan doing what he loves to do!

Mt. Diablo Factoids:  The mountain is 3,864 at its summit.  In the winter, once or twice it will get covered in snow and all of us down here in the valley can “ooo” and “ahhh” over the beautiful picturesque mountain covered in snow without having to live in it lol.  Yes, I am a wimp when it comes to snow.  (Spoken like a true San Francisco Bay Area native.)

I’ve met so many great people here through Word Press and have learned so much about my hobby through others here.  It’s not just sharing my photos, it’s meeting others who have similar passions and seeing the world through others’ eyes in a community sense.  I’ve always believed that we are all teachers and students and that’s how I feel here, so thank you.
