    Cool! Made me think fondly of my dad. Nice pics from the both of you! Your personalities really come through in the juxtaposition of images…What’s your day job that you hate? Have you considered something in the field of graphic arts?

  8. 23 August 2012 22:09

    I just adore this idea! Congrats to you both for keeping up with this. I would love to start something similar with my own daughter who lives far away from me now. I look forward to following your weekly posts going forward!

  9. 23 August 2012 09:31

    So this got pushed before me & I love the idea. My Daughter & I live 300 miles apart, I thought this would be a great idea too. She & I have decide to start a 6 month project and see where it leads us. Here’s our site for now :

    you guys are an inspiration… wow

  11. 22 August 2012 07:39

    Great work. Awesome blog. Touching concept. Stunning images and great stories. You’re building an exceptional amount of the most valuable thing a person can own – shared memories. Consider me a follower.

    Also visited as a result of the WordPress email… What a great concept and execution! Congratulations! There is much to like about what you are doing… on so many levels! Keep it going!

  13. 22 August 2012 02:54

    What a special project and inspiring photography!

  14. 22 August 2012 02:34

    Very good idea! Have a great day!

  15. 21 August 2012 17:41

    This is such a wonderful idea! Very original!

  16. 21 August 2012 16:44

    I just found your blog and it came to me in the perfect time. I moved to Australia a couple of years ago and my dad is still in Colombia. I can’t describe how much I miss him but we talk to each other almost everyday. Nevertheless I’ve been trying to find a way in which we can share some kind of activity in the distance and your idea is just perfect! I’ll show him this blog and hopefully he’ll like us to do something similar. Thank you!!!!!!!

  17. 21 August 2012 14:59

    WordPress just featured you in an email about collaborating with others on a blog. I’m so glad I visited…your photos are fun…well, just the few I’ve seen so far. How very sweet the two of you are together and I can feel the love…

    I think you’re blog is incredibly inspiring and speaks to the close relationship that you share with each other. We’re given one Mom and one Dad in this earthly journey. It’s wonderful that you’re creating such incredible memories together. I look forward to following your blog and beautiful photos.

    On a side note, I got a chuckle out of your post. My dad is Bill Connolly! :-)

  21. 31 January 2011 06:25

    nice! I lost me dad this year. Cherish him.

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful stories and pictures. This is an amazing project!

  24. 30 January 2011 15:22

    Very nice photography and idea! What camera do you use?


  25. 30 January 2011 09:12

    I love this idea! I wish I had a better relationship with my dad. My sister and I have a blog together. It’s not photography but writing together and it’s been a good experience for us. Very enjoyable. Many blessings!

  26. 30 January 2011 08:50

    What a wonderful blog! It makes me miss my Dad very much, and I wish that we had done something like this. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face and, more importantly, to my heart.

  27. 30 January 2011 05:39

    I love this project! The photos and your personalities; a wonderful shared activity and way to express your lovely relationship.

    Firstly, many congratulations on being Freshly Pressed. Secondly, can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed looking through your blog. I’ve kind of been studying blogs over the last few months, and I love the way you say so much with just a few words and pictures, instead of blabbing on about nothing like so many! Your blog is inspiring and warming. As someone who, at 64, can say that she had always had a very strained relationship with her father, all I can say is make the very most of it (although you don’t seem to need anyone to tell you that), and long may it continue. Wonderful project.

  33. 28 January 2011 23:27

    How wonderful. The blogs I like best are ones that can inspire me without taking up much of my time –like this!

    Hi, I found your blog on the homepage of wordpress, and I’m glad I clicked on the link, because your blog is very heartwarming. I only look on some of the photos, and read this page, but I can tell the strong loving bond between you and your dad, which is wonderful and beautiful.
    I really love the concept that you and your dad talk and share to each other through photos. I love how you and your dad say about one another, too.
    Thank you, for letting me see something such loving and beautiful.
    Wish you and your dad and all your love ones happy.

    Hi Dad!
    Never thought I’d get on a plane but Uncle Sam thought otherwise….

  36. 28 January 2011 16:09

    The comments that you make of each other are so cute! I can truly tell that you love each other, a lot!

  37. 28 January 2011 15:30

    So coming back! Love the concept – love the pics (missing my dad)

  38. 28 January 2011 11:58

    What an amazing idea. I am so impressed, and so happy to see a father and daughter enjoy their time together so much. It’s inspiring, and breaks my heart at the same time! I can’t wait to see what else you come up with :)
