1000th post


i snapped off this photo of the 1000 santa maria valley steam engine on a recent visit to travel town. turns out it is a perfect photo to put on the blog for today.

this is the one thousandth posting on the sky is big in pasadena. in some ways it seems like a very long time since post number one. over 50,000 visitors have checked out this blog in that time! but in other ways, it feels like just yesterday i was starting this blog as a creative outlet during my three year program at fuller seminary.

our three year projected time line for life in pasadena has quickly turned in to what looks like four and a half years (maybe more?). who knows how long i can keep this up. it has been a fun journey so far!

Congratulations and hope you keep it up, Ben, though now you also have a baby to occupy your time. And I expect you're taking lots and lots of photos of her?

Of course! She is filling up our computer with plenty of images. I've been really torn about how much to feature her on the blog. I'm not sure how I feel about displaying my daughter on the internet repeatedly. But we'll see. I'm sure she'll end up here from time to time.

Good question about putting kids' photos on the Net. I've gone back and forth on that one. But, kids or no, you've done great work here. Hard to imagine it's been 1000 posts.

Congratulations, Ben! 1,000 posts is quite a achievement. And I'm glad you'll be around a while longer.
