p.1 #1 · 40,000th POST!!!!!


Hello friends! Here I am at 40,000 posts on Fred Miranda Wow itís hard to believe I have been here so long and have posted so many times. This has been an incredible journey for me, I have learned so much along the way about photography, people, animals, different parts of the world and who knows what else. I have made many friends, met and shot with a heck of a lot of you. There have been some members that have meant a lot to me that have passed away and the forum is the poorer for those loses, we have to take the good with the sad thatís just part of life. Other members have moved on as their interests have changed while other members have joined and added their own special gifts to the mix. I looked back in time at my 10k post to see who was here and who has left; it turns out about 50% from that post are still active members that says a lot about you dedication and love for this art form. This forum is different than the rest, we have true friendships here and to me thatís what makes this place special. For those that taught and still continue to teach me, thank you, I am indebted to you. To those whose images made me say Wow, put a smile on my face, inspired me or captured my imagination, thank you. All of you make this place what it is, a positive oasis that brings a bunch of us from all around the world together to share our passion. Thank you my friends

Fred, I owe you the biggest thank you of all for creating this wonderful forum, you have brought together some extremely talented and amazing people and created a terrific venue for us to share the activity we all love so much. Thank you Mr Miranda.

Here is a favorite recent photo that I took with both current, future and past FMers to mark the occasion.

This is just incredible my very good friend

It boggles my mind to think that you started with just 'one' post and now have delighted and educated many many others to the tune of a whopping 40,000 responses,images, lessons, general posts, condolences, credits, nits and other kindly gestures of a truly talented individual

Geeeesh buddy I couldn't be happier for you and your accomplishments and your true genuine willingness to share and help others along the way and at times keep a certain individual ( ) in uplifted spirits when things got down.

You've been published, you have doubled your focal length and then some, you have been places and at angles that many other dream of Tim. Your visions and desires seem to continue to expand your great appreciation of Nature and Wildlife and it has been to my greatest satisfaction to see it, hear it and have the privilege to comment and critique it

Don't slow down................you are in your Happy Zone and that is 'All Good'

Love ya buddy.....
Karl

and just to keep things honest, I don't like blue BG's ..................................well unless you cover them up with Eagles like this

Raising the bar.
Love the detail in the wings.
Eagles are my favourite subject of late as they surprise you with their many poses. They always look so annoyed.

I can see I'm not going to get any work done today

I am truly humbled by your words Karl. I do remember back to the beginning, chasing some guy with a Jay on his head around N&W making comments and learning. It has been a while my friend but that time surely has flown. You have always been kind to me and gentle with your critiques, something I value so dearly. I'll never forget the dinner we shared on a dock in Maine, enjoying fresh lobster and beautiful evening with our families, that really is one special memory. One that I hope we can repeat in some form in the future, heck we may even shoot together someday!! I cannot thank you enough Karl for the really kind words, you're the best! We really have been through a lot together, some ups and some downs, those are the things that build friendships. Thank you Karl, you are a class act.

way to go tim! 40,000 posts! did you start in the pleistocene? just joking man. in all seriousness, i've always enjoyed your work (this eagle included!), and i look forward to the comments you post on my work on the work of other. yes, this is really a great place, and that veterans such as yourself have participated so actively for such a long time speaks to the quality of the interactions that here occur. if you make it to boston, i'll take you out. better hurry though, i'm outta here on on the big bike ride in 4 months!

A BIG and Heartfelt Congrats, Tim!!
A HUGE, meaningful, well deserved milestone and a testament to your dedication to this Forum and to your passion for this art form.
I still remember when you joined this Forum and how impressed I was by your excitement and desire to improve the quality of your images, to better and challenge yourself in the digital photographic process, and in the process, to become a better photographer. All the merit to you

40,000...oh my...Not having been around long it's quite the accomplishment, but even more so with the pictures you've posted. Keep my fingers crossed that I can get near to both points, perhaps one of these days we'll get to shoot together as well.
