Hi there,

This isn't intended as a plug fest.... In fact I wasn't going to say anything at all. I know its only 100 photos, and some people upload more in a day, I just felt the need to thank some people who may have lost patience with me in the past, got annoyed at my incessant moaning and thought my photo's sucked anyway... Its taken 2 years, my first photo taken by me to be added to the database was November 29th 2001, over a year after the first photo I had added (one of my fathers), and 3 years after I started visiting the site..

So I'd like to thank Colin K. Work, Andy Martin, Chris Sheldon, Craig Hendley and Paul Dopson who helped me immensly when I was starting out.. and also a plethora of names that I can't remember.. Derek Pedley, Ben Pritchard, Wietse, Jan and Tommy Mogren, Peter Unmuth, David Morrell, Gary Watt for many sarcastic comments and half promises (we still have no proof that you ate your dog  Big grin), Luis Rosa, Jason Taparell, Sven De Bevere, Andrew Hunt, Shaun Grist.

Yes, I could go on for hours, so many names.. I've spoken to so many great people... Etc. This sucks, probably just the Prozac talking hahaha.. cheers guys..

I said it wasn't going to be a plugfest, I lied!

Not a great photo by any means, even by my standards.. But it took me a hell of a long time to shoot it, I got moved on twice, nearly hit in the face.. and it was taken in the worst possible conditions (as per usual, note: barely any of my photos were taken in good weather).

Thanks

Dan

Excellent Dan... I assumed you were well over the 100 too. I seem to recall there were times when you were almost dispairing of getting one on the database - 100 is a great achievement. 1000 next!

I know its taken you quite a while to make 100... not criticising, but I'm not surprised really - you seem intent on doing things the hard way! Big grin

Kind Regards,

Dan - well done, and I must admit I too had assumed you had more than that. Not that the quantity really matters ... in fact, I'd say your average hit rate (907) is a much more impressive number!

Cheers,

Colin

Hey,

Congratulations Dan, you have some very nice shots in the database.
You might call that plane special, but when you get an UAE 747 (or several) in every week it quickly becomes boring. Wonder how much time it will take till I see that one here.

Glenn, you made me chuckle there. Oh well what can I say Australians are different...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

To your next 1000,
Tim

Its been like that ever since the database crash, the photo sucked anyway and its got twice as many hits as a red cross as it did as a photo Big grin

Thanks for the kind words guys..

oh and Tom.. Sorry I didn't mention you in my original post.. As I said i've spoken to many people while i've been here, you being one of them, so many names, too hard to remember them all, I knew i'd miss people out  Smile.

I guess I might as well post away, here is me indulging in my 'other' hobby, no I didn't take the photo in a mirror, I am backwards  Smile



Yes I still look like I did 5 years ago, except with slightly longer hair  Smile/happy/getting dizzy.
