Title • 100 today :-)

This is the 100th entry in this blog, the last 47 of which have been posted on sequential days, so I thought that I’d post a picture of myself as there haven’t been all that many of them (just two in fact: the second entry in this blog, and my entry for the Photo Friday Man challenge).

And like yesterday’s image, this is mostly a straight shot. The only Photoshopping that was done to this one was to blur my torso. The Canon G5, like all compact digitals, has a ridiculously large DOF, even at maximum aperture, and it just didn’t look right without this being done.

And given that this is something of a landmark, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the people who have supported my efforts, both by commenting here (the next comment posted will be the 600th!!!) and by voting for this site at photoblogs.org. I really don’t think that I would be able to motivate myself to keep up with my image-a-day aim if it wasn’t for all the positive feedback :-)
