Want to take this moment to wish every 2008 PhotoAiders....
A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR IN 2009!
It was fun, eventful and a great honor to work along side so many Wonderful, Charitable, Colourful, Zany, Friendly, Smiley, Resourceful, Hardworking, Camera Carrying, Over Sun-tanned and dedicated folks. Banded by the love of Photography and in it found each others sharing another special interest..... Giving a Helping Hand.
I think we all took away many good memories, lessons from that experience, made lots of new friends (even soul mates maybe..heh) and having that sense of accomplishment that we did not just watch the news of the tragedy on TV but we have in some small way did what we could to help.
Unfortunately, this photo does not represent ALL THE FOLKS that came together for PhotoAids 2008 but it does signify in some way the spirit of the Experience had by all.
To me anyway, this was the brightest spark of 2008.
*Maybe we should feature past shots from everyone to remember that time.
