“She preferred the quiet solitary atmosphere, to create in her own world of paint and colour, the thrill of anticipating how her works would turn out as she eyed the blank sheets of paper or canvas before starting her next masterpiece. How satisfying it was to mess around in paint gear, without having to worry about spills, starch or frills, that was the life!”

I met Adrienne Landry while wandering around Concord one summer afternoon. Here she paints on the grounds of The Old Manse, once the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a most beautiful setting. One of the many perks of exploring with camera in hand, is the wonderful (and in this case, very talented) people you meet along the way. Please stop by her website and have a look at her magnificent portfolio.

Of the 206 blogs you suggested I assembled 34 of the most popular through the 14 rounds we have been through together. I think it ended up being a very far-reaching compilation. I have listed them on the page Great Photo Blogs. I hope this can become a reference page for all your bloggers who are interested in photography. I want to extend a warm thank you to all of you who helped me with suggestions and voted through the many rounds. As of now it’s no longer possible to vote – naturally.
