Just pausing to reflect for a moment.


Someone once told me to be sure and celebrate my victories, triumphs and even little accomplishments. I pop open a bottle of Champagne each time a carton of new books arrives. I get a chocolate croissant the morning after I wrap a nice job. I buy a new pair of goggles every time I hit a big goal in my swimming. I have to think of a new way to celebrate today. The Visual Science Lab blog just hit the 8,000,000th pageview today. How fun. Seems like we're honing in on the million a month club. Not bad for the mad ramblings of a neurotic photographer in a small town.  I think I'll celebrate by inviting over one of my favorite subjects and shooting a few rolls of 120mm Tri-X. Yes. That sounds about right. Thanks for keeping me company.

Buying yourself a pair of googles is a nice celebration! You must be swimming in the same pool as uncle Scrooge :-)

Congrats. I'm glad on an almost daily basis to have discovered your blog. Thanks for all the reading, the thought provoking, and the pictures.

Personal rewards are essential, no need for guilt necessary.

However, as Anon points out "Googles" I'm not so sure about. :-)

Thanks for catching that. I can't believe I wrote "Googles" instead of "Goggles." Chalk it up to the internet age. Corrected now.

Quote: "Thanks for keeping me company" . Believe me, it's a (great) pleasure.

Tri X and some portraits sounds like a good celebration.

Congratulations Kirk! And thank you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge with us. I learned a lot from you since I'm reading your blog.

Regarding your favorite subjects. If you could freely choose, whom would you like to portrait with your Hasselblad?

Thanks,
Tom
