In a related note, (details here from last year), this site is eight years old today. It's been a photoblog for six of those years. Bon Anniversaire!

Congrats on 8 years up and running! I was just thinking the other day how nice it is that your site has remained relatively unchanged after all these years. Proof that good design and great content can stand the test of time. On another note, I love the 3rd shot. I was in Italy a few months ago and two of the most notable things are the loud Italians with their cell phones and the amazing art and architecture. Well captured.

Six years?! Congratulation Rion, you're one of the oldest and still just as compelling as the first time I saw your inspiring site. Love these shots.

Joyeux anniversaire ! 8 years is a good deal of work. I've only known your site for a couple of months, but keep coming to and fro :-) (As Mike, I thought of the Incredible character too :-p )
