Capture Date/Time: July 1, 2005-July 1, 2006

As of yesterday, Mike's Right Brain is officially one year old!!! First of all, welcome to the new MRB redesign! It focuses a bit more on the (now larger) photo itself and simplifies a few things. There are a few kinks that I need to work out over the next couple of weeks, so thanks for your patience during "construction." I'm very excited about this.

Since starting this project, I have learned more about photography than I ever dreamed I would. I learned more about taking pictures in adverse conditions, with malfunctioning equipment and with uncooperative subjects. Most of all, I have been deeply inspired by fellow bloggers, fellow photographers and the people shown in these photos. It has truly been an adventure, not only to explore photography (and to get kicked out of all sorts of places in the process), but to also explore my own "right brain."

Aside from this, there were still many times when I wondered whether maintaining a photoblog was worth it if people weren't watching. It never failed to amaze me how a comment or email from friends, fellow bloggers or random viewers close by or from some far-away place would make me realize that there are people who do keep up with MRB regularly. To those of you who visit, thank you for the comments and encouragement!

Very clever way to celebrate. Keep it up. You have a fan in California who thinks your photo's, your eye and your expertise are outstanding.

Wouldn't miss it and one of my inspirations. Glad to see you going to a bigger photo size I've been hoping for that for a while.

Congratulations! I want to click so many of those little thumbs to see the photo ;) Beautiful collection.

Congratulations on your milestone. You have some of the most inspirational photography around. You can bet that I don't miss a one- I just usually view them in batches of a week or so. It's most entertaining that way!
