113/252

In 2007, with family through out the country, I wanted a place to post some photographs. It enabled my family and friends to stay in touch. Facebook was not as popular and those who did use it were college age students. I chose blogger as a parking place. I posted photos of our newest little fuzzy puppies and random shoots of adventures B and I under took. It was a look into our everyday life, shared with people we knew. Someone suggested the name “Life through a Lens” and knowing little about photography, I did not realize this name was being used by Annie Leibovitz.  Sure I had heard of her, but didn't know Life through a Lens was her trademark.  I have often thought of changing the name, as I am not Annie, nor to I want to be. But change is difficult and with only people I knew viewing my photographs, I didn’t think it was a necessary change to make.

Through the four years, I have had many others visit and revisit my little cyber place. As of today, I have had just under 5000 visitors view my profile. I haven’t had a counter on my blog itself but I would venture to say it is well over this number, as everyone who stops by does not view my profile. So , the decision was made and thus this is “Life as I see it”.

today I see, Murf rejoicing in a bit of sunshine.

What a truly wonderful view of Murphy, it looks as if he's sucking in the joys of living

He's beautiful - and congrats on your name change!! Isn't it amazing how far we've all come since the first post we ever blogged about???

Great job on the name change! I didn't think twice about it being Annie Leibovitz's thing, I didn't even make the connection. :) And a great shot of Murf...he looks happy to be soaking up the sun.

Our Chi loves "sunbathing" too! He looks like he's enjoying it!

I've been thinking of a name change, too, since most of my pictures are taken of nature. I didn't know what my niche would be when I started this journey, but I found it and my blog name just doesn't fit. Love this picture of Murphy. I just peeked at your other photos that I've missed. My favorites are the frog and the turtle. Great shots! Thanks for thinking of my family...it's good to be back home again.

Sweet Trish. You've blogged for a long time. Keep it up.

Melinda said...

I can just feel Murphy inhaling the sunshine- wonderful photo!
And congratulations on keeping up with your blog for so long! I have had genealogy webpages and a classroom blog, but never one before that I posted (gulp!) every single day. It is quite a commitment, isn't it? And I think 5000 viewers of your profile must be at least 20,000 views of your website.

OK, I realized you changed your header- but didn't realize you actually DID change your name til just now! Too bad you felt compelled- I never realized Annie had that name sewn up. I like the new header and name!

Janell said...

hmm that's interesting, I didn't know the name was her trademark.

I love his expression, he looks so content!

Happy Easter!

I love Anne's work- never realized that was her "name" though!
And I love the picture of Murphy- he looks so blissful!

BEAUTIFUL pup! Gosh I can't wait to get one. Seems like every single person here in CO has one and believe me my son has noticed!!

Amanda said...

I like the name change. And I love the picture of your pup!! I changed the name of my blog 3 times before settling on Sevin Sweetness :)

Soaking in the sun! Love it!
