Perspectives on Nature Photography

First guest post

with 7 comments

About a week ago, Linda of Forageporage announced that she was about to pass the one-year mark in her blog, and she asked several other bloggers if they’d like to write a guest post to mark that anniversary for her. I was one of those people, and I gladly accepted. If you’d like to see the result, you’re welcome to have a look at Convergent Evolution.

Being a language person as well as a nature person, I can’t help noticing that the title I casually chose for this announcement, First guest post, consists of three words that all end in -st. And being a math person, I see that I can truthfully claim that this is my Best first guest post, for the simple reason that it’s the only one. Of course you could answer with equal truthfulness and another -st that it’s also my Worst first guest post, again because it’s the only one. But go have a look, and with still another -st I trust that between the two logical truths you’ll be swayed to see the post as the best.

Wordplay aside, we all wish Linda well as she enters her second year promoting nature at Forageporage.

  2. Congratulations on the guest post! It was nicely done and I enjoyed reading it.

    I added your website to my blogroll for daily photographs. I find it interesting to see what others do and didn’t think you’d mind.

    • I do want to clarify though – the photos I post on the Internet are not corrected. I do know how to use Photoshop, but generally do not adjust what I’m posting publicly.

    • Thanks, Nancy, for adding me to your blogroll for daily photographs. I don’t mind at all: I’m always glad for good exposure (pun intended).
