One of the most fascinating things about this year has been how each month has connected with a different audience. Of course there are those readers who have stuck with me through the more and less exciting times (thanks mom). However, there are those people who join in for a month at a time. There were the extreme couponers who gave me advice and offered support in March. There were the voyeurs who enjoyed reading about my many attempts to push myself out of my comfort zone (that porn cinema still haunts me) in August or my crazy date a day in May. There were the travellers who followed along in September and the chefs and foodies in June and October. Finally there are the photographers that are joining the discussion this month.
What’s really interesting is how the blogosphere has helped this interaction along. I’m only now realizing the important role of connecting between blogs plays. I wish I had done more of this connecting during my earlier months.
I’ve had a few fellow photographer bloggers follow my blog over the past few days. Their sites and photos are beautiful, so I thought I should give a little shout out to them. If you’re interested in seeing some great photos, check these blogs out:

Ok, on to my photo of the day…
I just love photographing street art. The talent is amazing. I love the colours and the shapes. There’s no real story to this (although I’m pretty sure I referenced it during art month in April), only that it inspired me to take a photo, and it inspires me just looking at it.
