Keeping the definition of vignette in mind, this post weaves photos and few words to present a brief look at the first two months of Back Porch Musings, March and April 2007.
Just about 6 weeks from now, I will celebrate eight years at Back Porch Musings. It goes without saying, the years have flown by! I hope to continue awhile. Believe it or not, BPM has been a lifesaver for me. If I need a little escape, I take photos and compose a post. In other words, I lose myself for a few hours.
You may have seen these photos, but I thought it would be fun to revisit some of the old images. These are from the archives of the original Back Porch Musings (Blogger 2007-2010). The photos illustrate how my photography has grown. When viewed alongside current photos they show changes I’ve made in my personal style.
It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, that we will begin to live each day to the fullest; as if it were the only one we had.
