Thank you everyone who has supported me throughout this journey and
thank you to anyone who will support me after this. I'm so grateful to
have gone through this adventure (although I really was not so keen on
it about 100 days ago)
I want to thank all of my contacts that I can now call friends. The family members who have supported me. My friends that have come and gone.
I can't thank you all enough. Today was such an interesting day. I don't ever want my 365 to end but at the same time I cannot wait for it to be over with. I'm super excited for 2012 and I wish you all a very very happy new year!
I want to throw out a special thanks to Steven Brisson. Once upon a time, a couple years ago, I was googling photography images. I didn't find a single one that I liked, I didn't quite find the art in it yet. Then, I found this. I'd never seen a sky more beautiful. The link took me to his flickr page and I went through every photograph of his for 3 days. His artistic way of capturing life inspired me to be a photographer and I started saving for my dslr. Without finding that image, I doubt I ever would have found the same beauty in photography as I do now. Thank you Steven, so so so so so much.
Another thanks to Anna Szczekutowicz. Although you deleted your 365, that is what inspired me to start this project. I looked through your photographs day after day, finding inspiration in every corner, every word. I miss looking through your 365 photos, but you are a phenomenally talented photographer. Thank you.
Thank you Thuy for all of your inspiring words that helped push me to the end of this project. I always smiled when I'd see your comments and encouraging words. Thank you so so so much.
Thank you MaryJo for being a crutch during my good and bad days and for being a genuine friend.
And last, but definitely not least; Thank you Stuart for being another reason I became a photographer. Although I don't plan on going into landscapes, each of yours takes my breath away. You are so talented and have encouraged me a ton. Thank you bunches and bunches.
Thank you to everyone else who has followed my stream, seen one image, commented, favorited, critiqued, or even hated my images. Thank you all so much--I can't explain how much you all have helped me through this.
(also, I got a nasty blister on my finger for cutting out those boards with just a razor blade, my mom couldn't find the box cutter. My grandpa kept saying he'd do it, but I couldn't let him--this was my last 365 image.)
