My 400 and Thank You

I saw 399 published posts on my dashboard; so this would be my 400. Going by my run rate; I should have touched 400 sometime during August 2012. However, owing to my ill treatment to my blog and losing interest; I am 4 months late.

Its still much better. I would love to go back and talk about my first post or how I started blogging. I would love to write about early days, comments and readers. But I am going to do none of it. I am, however; going to thank you all for continuing to encourage me and reading my posts; though these days they have been less intense, less sarcastic and definitely less frequenting.

I don't want to abandon this space any time. Let me hope I will be more frequent and share my views more than confining it within me and acting selfish as one of my friend put it. Leaving with many thanks and few of my latest snaps.

  3. Well you are just off the starting point B. 400 is no land mark , you will go a lot further.

    Though a total novice to photography, I feel you must pool up resources and buy an accessory lens that is most appropriate. If wildlife photography is something you love then , better not hide behind penury.
    Hope to see you blogging often as I consider your writing and thoughts as among the few honest and sane.
    Good luck.

    1. Anil,

      Thanks Anil. It didnt seem that way last year. I was to almost abandon this space. Yeah, I upgraded to an used 70-200 mm few months ago. I was lucky to get it at 1/3rd of its price, thanks to a friend. I would definitely keep looking for a good gear; need to get a get better.

      :) Writing, I just stopped for sometime; now it might that I got lazy or was wary of putting down my thoughts. Hope I would write more here after

  7. Way to go, B! Your blog has always been a hearth of love and comfort. All the best. Glad to see you growing bolder and bolder with your camera! Remember that blue butterfly in Costa Rica? I had used it as my facebook pic for a long time, ( don't remember asking your permission!) :-D
