Every now and then, I feel like I should take a moment to say thank you to the people who have shown an interest in my photography. I don’t really spend a lot of time on self-promotion of myself or my work, so when people express an interest in it – people who don’t owe me anything and don’t get any benefit other than my gratitude – it means a lot. If you’ve purchased a print of mine, grazie. If you’ve sent me a kind word, grazie. If you’ve helped me with my photography skills or artistic growth, grazie. If you’ve visited my website or looked at the work I post online from time to time, grazie.
The image in this post is one that I made this summer, and I had a request from the person I was with to bump it up to the front of the line of images I have lined up to post. I’m happy to do so to say thanks to that person, and to have it stand in as a kind of symbolic grazie to everyone else who’s lent me encouragement in my photography these last few years.
