One Year!



    Just a couple of weeks ago there was the post number one hundred. Today, November 4th, 2010, this blog becomes exactly one year old!

    And like a one year old child, this blog is learning to throw things at people, make weird faces and become noisy when there’s something it wants   :)

    Think of it more like a declaration of independence…

    One of the things I’ve seen bloggers do when they reach a year time blogging, is to give away something as a gift to their faithful followers. I’ve also seen them do it in a way that will help them spread the word of their blogs and increase readership.

    Seems like a good idea!  But not for me…

    Instead, I’ll share with you the beautiful Denver’s clouds that I get to see everyday, without any strings attached.

    I know many people will disagree with me, and claim they have the most beautiful clouds of all; so I won’t argue, and just let them live their mistake and enjoy their innocence   :)

    Now, since uploading big pictures in a post will increase the loading time of the page, I placed the pictures below in thumbnail size. If you click in them you should be able to see them in a bigger size.

    If you want to download them to your computer, just right click in the opened picture and “save picture as”. It should save it in JPEG; 1024 x 768; 72 dpi; and between 42 and 134 KB each.

    These are all pictures I took myself, so there are no copyrights involved, and you can use them for whatever reason you want, and without the need of giving credit or making a link to this blog (I know, my business skills need some work!).

    Hey! I consider myself a rebel blogger: No specific niche; no ads; no reviews; no Facebook; no Twitter (I created an account a couple of years ago, but after the first tweet to test, I simply abandoned the whole thing). And slowly but surely I’m starting to speak up my mind…you’ll see… (he-he).

    Anyway, about the pictures, let me clarify that I am not a seasoned photographer, and my cameras, although digital, work on raw oil instead of batteries (they are that old). One is an Olympus D 390 and the other an Olympus C 470, and I like to greet the clouds when picturing them, so my hand is always shaking.

    So, take a look at them, and if you like them, please feel free to download them for whatever use you see fit, without any obligation to me or this blog.

    It’s a gift, not a business or promotion tactic!

    Enjoy; and if you happens to find a favorite, tell me in the comment section  :) 

    Also, if you want a copy without the captions, let me know and I’ll send you an email with the pictures in 1024 x 768 in an attachment.

    (And don’t forget to have a drink to celebrate this little brat-blog’s first year!)

    Congrats on the one year! Those skies are beautiful indeed. I tend to forget anniversaries for my current blog, and every time I remembered to check, it’s nowhere near the date. For my old blog, I purposely coincide it with the daylight savings so at least I would remember to check.

    Hi Kelvin,

    Clouds around here can adopt very strange shapes sometimes!

    Seems like a great idea to start a blog in a specific day, so to easily remember the anniversaries; only problem is that you have one shot at it before start :)

    Congratulations, Alien! And thanks for the clouds, they are very beautiful indeed… Maybe we should create a society for the appreciation of clouds, they are essential to dreamers…

    Hi Nacho,

    Thank you! And I’ll keep taking pictures and posting them from time to time.

    A society for the appreciation of clouds? Can you imagine field work…a bunch of people looking up in awe while walking like zombies! Interesting…but I pass :)

    Now dreamers are another story. Although I don’t like dreamers since I hate competition! :)

    Raul — Congratulations on the birthday…WOW!!!

    I loved looking at the pictures of the clouds. You did an excellent job of the names the pictures. I could see the things you saw in the clouds. My favorites were “Explosion.” I liked the cloud and the “no entry” gates as they fitting the cloud name. I liked The Chosen Ones…and the subtitle…all I can is maybe next time. I laughed out loud for that one:~)

    I also liked “Visitors”…that a great name for an unusual cloud. I’m very impressed with both your photography and the names you gave the pictures!

    Have a happy one:~)

    Hi Sara,

    “The Chosen Ones” and the subtitle becomes like life, isn’t it? Dreaming of someday to be where it seems to be better :)

    On “Visitors”, it was really impressive to see that giant cylinder hanging there, so close over the light poles. Also the colors red and green at the edges gave it a special touch.

    Thank you for your comments, and I’m glad you had a good laugh…as I did when naming that one.

    Hi Marion,

    Sometimes is difficult not to be in awe with the views of the sky :)

    Congrats, Raul! Happy, happy day.
    Lovely photography — thank you! My step-daughter lives in Denver and is constantly taunting me with the Denver clouds. My, oh my, how I love photos of the sky.
    I’m holding up a glass to you (**clink**). I may not always comment, but I’m still reading, so don’t go anywhere, ya’ hear?
    Keep on keeping on…

    Hi Lori,

    Thank you…and cheers!

    Your step-daughter lives here? Great! Then I have a witness to support my claims (lol)

    Don’t worry, I’m not going away…there’s no place to hide in the internet after all :)

    Hi Joy,

    Thank you for your kind words and good wishes; and I’m glad you liked the clouds pictured.

    Although they don’t look the same in the screen as they do when watched with our own eyes; it is still a good way to remember those continually moving and shape changing clouds overhead. They are a continual reminder of all the marvels we can see and enjoy in this beautiful Earth :)
