We're in the last month of the year. It's been a year full of joy for me, in recognition as professional in photography, as well as related to blog projects, and also a mention in Saveur magazine which I am very proud.
I am nearly reaching a thousand regular readers and 8 thousand visitors a month. I'm very happy with your constant comments that greatly encourage me.
