    Happy New Year 2019!

    I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year in 2019!

    2019 was a great year of growth for FocalWorld. Thanks to each of you for helping us grow here.

    Thank you to each of you who are supporting the work here financially, we got some wonderful donations during the Christmas season!

    More then anything, Thank you for supporting FocalWorld with your time and your photography and commenting, that is just so appreciated!

    We are small, but mighty! :) We have such an awesome community here. Our friendly and family feel is really special, and rather unique. It's awesome when people can come in and feel welcome and at home, knowing that everyone is treated with respect. Please take the time to invite other photographers to join us this coming year to join in with our community.

    We had a lot of great meetups this last year. I know I had a blast driving all over the Western Half of the U.S. meeting with so many of you during Fall Colors. Hopefully FocalWorld can be part of your extended family, so connecting on a personal level is important.

    So here is to 2019! May FocalWorld continue to grow through everyone's help and efforts, but may we always maintain that small town feel. :)

    I hope that everyone get's a chance to go on some fun adventures this coming year. Both getting to photograph old places, but also to get a chance to visit and explore some new locations. And may we all grow not just as photographers but as people, being a positive influence to those around us.

    Each of you are a part of my family! :)

    Jim

    Thanks Jim, I am finding this an important way to stay connected to the hobby, which for me is seasonal.

    Thanks to you Jim for all your work in making this site work. I faded off from actively posting much about 6 years ago (mostly FM at the time) and this site has provided me with a way to get back into being part of the photo community again.
