Today is the Eighth Anniversary of Greensboro Daily Photo. We have published a photo a day of Greensboro, with accompanying text, for 2,920 days- through deaths, power outages, and vacations out of the country-- without missing a day. While we try hard, we don't always get everything perfect. We are just average Greensboro residents trying to provide our community with a slice of life, documenting the positive and uplifting aspects of Greensboro. Fortunately, we have faithful readers who send comments, suggestions, and edits.
Tomorrow starts Year Nine. As we ponder what on earth we will find to share for another year, we're confident a new building will get completed; a community member will welcome us to do an interview; a beautiful front yard will catch our eye. Indeed, we suspect there will be plenty to feature in 2017. Even those Sunday reflections and posts of a more spiritual nature somehow seem to come to mind.
The Community Daily Photo concept began with Paris Daily Photo. Eric Tenin conceived of the idea and shared daily photos of Paris for ten years until he moved to Malta a year or two ago. Today, there are daily photo sites on every continent. Hopefully, GDP can reach PDP's ten year mark. Remember, you can sign up to receive GDP through e-mail; you can bookmark us and log on to the URL directly; and, usually Facebook publishes daily. For some reason, our tweets on Twitter have stopped. We're working on that issue. (In the absence of an IT department, we are lucky if we even get e-mails read). However, if you stick with us for another year, we will try our hardest to bring you the best of Greensboro, one photo at a time.
Fondly, Janis and David
