Editors Note:


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off a three year managerial stint, your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is back on the street and under heavy deadline. As the numbing effects of his self-imposed containment wear off, vexing reflections and pithy epistles are sure to follow...

200,000 (and counting)

Lost in ProseNormally I don't delve into the 'blogonomics' of Viewfinder Blues. Hey, I'm all for transparency - but pet photos, lunch menu summaries and tortured dissertations on possible template changes are a large part of what makes blogs so laughable. Still, I'm poking my head out from behind the curtain this morning to note a small milestone and impart a word of thanks. A couple of nights ago a reader from British Columbia hit the trigger on their mouse and became visitor number 200,000. That's a miniscule amount of traffic for a professional site, but for a guy who slather his thoughts on-line so he can sleep better at night, it ain't too shabby. So please take out of your moment out of your busy Friday to pat yourself on the back, as your continued visits here have truly enriched my life. Thanks to your efforts, the ramblings of a camera-schlepping nobody have found a home in cyberspace and a silly user name has become something of an alter-ego. I may shrug it off in person, but it means an awful lot to me. I don't know that I would have stuck with this late night endeavor had I not known someone out there was actually reading my drivel. So while I scream for Tito to bring me a tissue, click over to the other photog blogs and give 'em some love. But please(!), come on back when you're done. I swear someday, I'll make it worth your while...

Congrats! And thanks for the mindless drivel and feud-provoking fodder -- and all the refferals.
