"Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all."

Exil-ent, originally uploaded by robgt.

This is what I use to take most of my photos. It was super-cheap and it's quite small and easy to carry around. And surprisingly it's quite adaptable, which is helping me to learn about photography.

Don't think you need a fancy dslr to take decent pictures! :)

My Casio Exilim is silver, but it outputs a rainbow...

Personally I think this photoblog has been a success... people have come together and posted pics that, for them, demonstrate the specialness hiding within the ordinary & everyday.

From a "big bang" at the start of the year... things tailed off with folks posting as / when the notion took them... usually when they had something awesome to share.

I haven't been the most regular of posters... and I intend for that to change in 2010.

I would also like to make some other changes to this photoblog... and need your help with the following:

1) If you are a contributor... please leave a comment IF YOU WISH TO CONTINUE to contribute. There is little point in being a "named contributor" if you no longer contribute. I will have no ill feeling if you no longer wish to be part of bergamot.

2) If you are a viewer/reader... please lets us know what you want to see/read. Do you want us to link to some of the fab content out there in the photography world... provide hints & tips... learn a wee bit more about a certain something that one of the contributors does? I, for one, want to know how Stewart Cutler gets those fab shots of the moon or how Laura Bridge imagineers such awesome self-portraits.

Please accept my thanks for participating in this photoblog experiment... either as a contributor or as a viewer/reader.

I hope 2010 brings you joy and peace.
