Today marks the one year anniversary of GDP. I started this blog for three reasons:
1) I was (and am) totally in love with this place.
2) I knew I'd get to know it better with a camera.
3) My photo chops were dull and I figured I'd get back on my game if I made a commitment that involved producing an image a day that I was willing to show the world.
365 days later, it seems my goals have been met and I'm even more smitten with this little island in the stream.
Thanks to my fellow Gabriolans who have welcomed me into their lives, to Mrs. Snapper for posting when I was away and for being the best wife a guy could ever ask for and last but not least, thanks to everyone who has paid a visit and especially those of you that have taken the time to leave a comment.
I have no idea what this next year will bring but at least I've got tomorrow's photo in the hopper. Island life one day at a time.
If you're here on Gabriola, please join me this evening at The Roxy for a slideshow, 300+ images from Year One on the big screen complete with instrumental music from local artists and who knows, maybe even cake. Doors open at 7, slides go at 7:30.
