The End

When Tracey  passed over the torch to me, I was a bit reluctant to take it up.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to come up with something for every week.  I tried valiently for awhile to link it with Photography Tips, trying to give some value add to the theme.  That seemed to be pretty successful.  I wish I would have had more time to devote to doing that, but it made coming up with new themes harder.  

A few ladies offered to take up the torch and I am trying to figure out which wants to do it (check your e-mail Amy Jo!).  I will post once it gets all straightened out.  

It’s been swell everyone and thanks so much for participating! :)



What do you have for “The End” today? :)

    Thank you for doing theme Thursdays after Tracy passed it on. I have enjoyed participating and reading and it has brought so many other blog/photographers into my Reader. I am one of those for whom participation has waned, but I’m still here, a faithful reader, and i will follow Theme Thursdays to their new home.

    I have not been participating since the beginning, but I have thoroughly enjoyed Theme Thursday since I joined in. Thanks so much for taking the time to organize it each week.

    Here’s my contribution:

    funny thing about endings, they tend to make the space needed to for new beginnings. it’s all in how you look at it. you’ve done an excellent job of your themes stacy but I am the first to know that sometimes you just have to pass the baton. : ) you have to follow the signs that appear –
    here’s to wrapping up one thing and opening up whatever gifts present themselves in the future!! xo

    Thank you, Stacy. It is hard to come up with something every week (or feel like you have to post something, if you are the one starting it…ahem, like a certain Tuesday thing we have going!) – but you did a fantastic job and I have really loved joining in when I could.

    I had a great idea for today, but instead had to post about the end of being five, and didn’t have time to do 2 posts.

    I’ll look for TT in a new place! Thanks for taking it on for as long as you did!

    I’m sorry to see you passing this on, but then I totally understand having the time to keep something like this up would be challenging too.
    So here’s to The End or really the beginning of something new. :)

    Thank you for all of your hard work Stacy! I’ve been trying all day to upload my photo, but blogger doesn’t seem to be interested! Oh well. I guess I have more time to visit all of the other posts, right?

    You know that the moment I posted that last comment the photo upload started working just fine, right? :)

    thought that I would share one of my favorite poems with you. “and that has made all the difference”

    TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same, 10

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back. 15

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference. 20

    Awesome shot! And here is my end note for you – at the END of the day. Squeaking in at just under midnight Pacific time. Yup, what can I say?

    thanks again for doing Theme Thursdays as long as you did!

    I’m commenting a day late. I know. I think I was in denial…I didn’t even post yesterday…how’s that for passive aggressive? :) I enjoyed Theme Thursday so much. While I didn’t participate every week, I loved tying in a larger theme into my posts…and loved checking out the other contributions.
    I appreciate your hard work and love you put into Theme Thursday….it will be missed :)

    What a beautiful image Stacy. Thank you for hosting Theme Thursday. That’s wonderful that the torch may be passed once again!

    Stacy, thanks so much for your dedication to hosting Theme Thursday for so long! It’s been fun. And, sorry I dropped the ball on this very last one with you. I have some possible “endings” in my life right now, but they aren’t ones I want to share too widely.
