I would like to thank fellow blogger Bill at MOTIONPhotography for his kindness in nominating me for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I accept, with gratitude. One of the obligations of accepting this award is to tell you a few things about myself; so, here goes: (1) I grew up in Massachusetts, (2) My wife and I have lived and worked on Pairodox Farm since 1989, (3) There was a hiatus of more than 30 years between being a staff photographer for my high school news paper and taking up the hobby of photography once again a year or so ago, (4) I have a genuine addiction to morning coffee, and (5) I enjoy writing and work very hard (with Joanna’s editorial assistance) to make my blog an interesting place to visit. As a recipient of this award it is also my responsibility to nominate a few of my favorite blogs for the same. Therefore I nominate the following WordPress blogs to receive the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, Wing and a Prayer Farm, She Kept A Parrot, Leanne Cole’s Photography Field Trips, breathofgreenair, The Timeless Treasure, Duck? Starfish? but … 23, talainsphotographyblog, and Appropriately Frayed. Since establishing my own Pairodox blog the people responsible for these thoughtful and inspiring sites have been sources of constructive feedback, support, and motivation. Thanks everyone.
