Now that we’re officially into the New Year of 2012, (and according to some, potentially earth’s last year – if you believe in the ancient Mayan calendar) there’s no better time for this; The very first thing I want to do in the New Year is to offer my most sincere and humble thanks to everyone who has shown, or expressed an interest in my photography, taken the time to comment, acknowledge, share, or otherwise let me know they’ve been enjoying my work.

Those who know me and my Buddhist leanings, may also know it is very difficult for me to stand up and shout “look at me” or to call attention to myself with any overt self-promotional motivations, or with a constant sales message looming in the foreground.The fact that people are taking the time to let me know they like an image, especially if the share it with their online friends and social circles, moreover without any gimmicks or commercial promotional contests, is most gratifying and appreciated.

I’ve never really considered myself an ‘Artist’, but I’m nonetheless very humbled to know that something about my work occasionally moves another person. So thank you all once more.

… wishing all of us on This Good Earth a more blessed and peace-filled 2012.

(Btw – If it is the Earth’s last year, I’m calling dibs on a front row seat on a white sand beach in Tahiti, with a really strong umbrella cocktail in hand.)

    Haha!!! The Mayans apparently had not enough foresight to anticipate their OWN demise. I know you’re not really serious, but I find it amusingly ironic that some believe they may have accurately forecast our demise given they overlooked their own.

    SO… The upshot is, I’m really looking forward to enjoying your brilliant, yes – art – for ALL of 2012, and beyond. 🙂

    Happy New Year!!! 🙂

    First of all, really gorgeous image, Gary. Its peaceful and serene, just the way I like it.

    Next, Happy New Year! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you a bit through the internet, and look forward to your thoughtful blog posts and beautiful images in 2012…

    I can very much sympathize with reluctance to blow one’s own horn and with the wish that lurkers would occasionally leave a comment on my images. I’m all too often guilty of the latter. But your images are always a delight, Gary: thank you and best wishes for 2012!

  4. Alex Filatov Says:

    No thank YOU Gary! Your photography serves as an important source of inspiration for me, and I am sure it will continue to for years to come. I’ve really enjoyed every single one of your favorite images from 2011. I wish you all the best this year!
    Just added you to the blogroll on my site. 🙂
