Tommorrow marks my 1 year anniversary on Flickr. Thanks so much to all of you who have made it a really enjoyable hobby and re-ignited my interest in photography. Yoshi was my first post, so I thought it appropriate to post some pics of my little buddy to signify the event.

    Congrats, Randy, on your year here! I know it’s been an eventful year for your family, but I’m glad you find the time to share so many beautiful photos here. And of course Yoshi is high on the list of everyone’s favorites..)

  • Randy Son Of Robert said:

    – Thanks so much Matt. What a cool group of contacts and friends I have made too. Thanks for your many visits to my photo stream this year.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

  • Randy Son Of Robert said:

    – Nice to have met you too and all my wonderful Australian contacts. It seems that since I post late at night on the West coast of America, I do have a lot of contacts from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, etc.

    You shouldn’t let your dog play down by the river you know LOL

    Great Shot!

  • Randy Son Of Robert said:

    – LOL.

  • Morag Reid said:

    ooooo… scary pup! Is he going out trick or treating like that? He could go as an alien.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

  • Randy Son Of Robert said:

    – Yeah, really scary, uh huh. When this ball bounces, it starts to light up and flickers on and off. It is pretty cool.

  • sudergal said:

    Flickr puts a little light in our lives like the ball lights up his.

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

  • 1blessedmom Photography said:

    Cute! I hope the ball doesn’t make Yoshi glow too much. Cool ball for her. Congratulations on your 1st year! Yoshi sure makes a great subject for photography.

  • Randy Son Of Robert said:

    He usually rips these balls apart, but I think he likes this one because it is still intact and still glowing. Yoshi is my most willing, living subject, for sure.

    Thanks! I’ll let him know.

  • Jodyg22 said:

  • ezz_eddie said:

    Kirby would love to have a ball like that to play with. Westie’s make a good subject for taking pictures. I’m into my second year on Flickr and I found taking pictures is more than pushing the (Easy Button) to get great pics. But I’ll keep trying.
