I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Just a number. Relevant at certain times. Not here, at least as I am concerned.
We are talking photos I have posted. I am at 5998 as I write, 6000 a short time after.
Several of my loyal followers have asked if I would have something special for number 6000. That would be cool, but no sirree bob. Just the same old crap.
Any regular readers know what I post... whatever is interesting. Quality or not. If I get an AC approval, fine. After 6000 posts, anyone can get lucky. I am proof of that. If I wanted to post award winning photos, I have failed. But I am happy with what I have posted. Life in Dutch. It is not always pretty.
Sometimes I get lucky, snapping with eyes closed. But that is not my goal, at least for now. There were a couple photo contests recently which I wanted enter, one involving the fishing industry. I only have a couple thousand photos I could have entered. But I ended up not entering even one. Mainly because I was too busy, but also because it is not a high priority, YET.
It has all been fun posting, and after 5998 pictures it is hard not to come up with something special. To me, 6000 is not special. Just like 5278. Or 3210. Remember those? Maybe #1000 was special, but even that one is forgotten to me. Lets say #10,000 will be special, and I will save a good one. But why save a nice photo then publish it at a certain moment? I may have a better one come through. Until I get paid to do this, it will happen as it happens. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
6000 is just a point in time.
