Now We Are Six


Today’s image is of photographer Sam Abell instructing the workshop that I attended in February at the Los Angeles Center of Photography.

The trip was an important step in learning to be a photographer.

And going to the workshop was a direct result of this blog, and thus a good picture for a birthday.

And a birthday it is – Burnt Embers turns six today!

There have been 2300 posts and more than a quarter million views.

Best of all are the nearly 18,000 comments and 1700 followers.

Thanks to all of you that keep me going on this unexpected journey.

    • Thank you Melinda – I too am very pleased that somehow blogging drew us together across a continent. The workshop was great, and made more so by you being there too.

      Six more years of blogging is an intimidating prospect. I think I will keep it day to day 🙂


      • The workshop was the best photographic thing that happened all year – I am so happy that it worked out for us.

        I didn’t mean to imply you HAVE to keep blogging for six more years! Just one day, at a time, and we’ll see where it leads!

      • I agree, in fact for me one of the best photographic things that have ever happened, which is one reason I used this photo. I can handle one day at a time, and sometimes a few weeks all at once if I am going to be away. More than that though ….
