Time flies...


I can't believe it's been 2 years since I started this blog... 2 years that allowed me many pleasant things: 1) rediscover my city, 2) "meet" - even if for most of them only virtually - hundreds of nice people throughout the world, 3) build up a community that never ceases to increase. Of course, I sometimes feel I spend far too much time on this blog - and answering the many emails people send me from everywhere asking me for visit tips! - but I don't regret it. I want to thank you all for being always so nice to me, you are the reason why I continue.

  5. Thanks for establishing the community! It's all your fault to spend lot's of time in front of computer these days. ;.)

    Well, it's so much fun and I really thank your concept since I rediscovered to the purpose of taking photos almost every occasion.

  15. Eric,

    You give blogs a really good name.

    Thanks very much for two years of daily photos that remind us of places we been and love, show us new places to visit, and -- wherever in the world we live -- give us fresh eyes for home.

    Bon anniversaire!

    un joyeux n'anniversaire a toi,
    un joyeux n'anniversaire a toi Eric...

    bon comme prévu je t'ai mis le post du jour sur le Bastia dp; il est vrai que c'est un cliché un peu volé mais a mon gout trés parisiens et de plus tu n'as qu'a cliquer sur dimanche et tu verra le coté obscure de ma vision de Paris derniérement...

    je te souhaite une belle et bonne continuation...

    je sors du tournage du film (ce soir c'etait la derniére je te ferais parvenir quelques clichés)


    a prestu è amicizia...
    baggiu...

  17. Thank you for so many things - for giving me a look at Paris every day for the last year since I found your blog. Thank you for inspiring me to start mine, which has led me in such unexpected and delightful directions, brought me new friends and new opportunities and a new creative life. Many happy returns!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Bon anniversaire Mr. Eric! You are quite an influential man. You have created so much good will around the planet in two years. And just think, every single day there are thousands of people who think of you at least once and get to see a glimpse of Paris exactly as you have seen it. That's an amazing connection when you think about it. It is that human connection behind your images that is the essence of PDP and sets you apart in a special league of your own in the blogosphere. You've inspired a lot of people to try it themselves. Thanks for fostering this friendly global community along. I've "met" so many wonderful people and I'm learning more about my own city and photography. . .and it all started with looking at Paris through your lens every day. Thanks, and very best wishes for the coming year.
    -Kim

    Thank you Eric for keeping Paris in our hearts every day of the year, and also for the great community we've found in your comments!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Eric...HAPPY BIRTHDAY! What can I say, this blog is of course about Paris, but it's about you too!!!! You know what, the thought of YOU has made me give up getting fancier camera for a few times, because you and PDP remind me it's about the "heart", not about fancy camera and photography :-) I hope you know what I mean...hugs

  23. Eric, I will agree in particular with Kim that you are such an infuential man. I would like to thank you not only for the creation of my most favorite and first priority "morning habit" but also for the creation of this global city daily photo community - which is the strongest evidence that PDP was one of the most succesfull enterprises in blogging!

    I would like to wish to you many many "Joyeuses Anniversaires"!!!

    Hronia Polla (long live) from your greek readers!!!

    Special delivery to PDP !

    ReplyDelete
  72. "I want to thank you all for being always so nice to me"

    How could it be otherwise, Eric? In an increasingkt vulgar world, your own unfailimng courtesy and kindness presents such a superb model for the rest of us to to follow.

    The daily photographs of Paris are a constant delight but I also always appreciate the brief acompanying informative comment and the gentle humour in which it is often expressed.

    Long may you continue Eric but first, perhaps a glass of champagne and a croissant to celebrate your second anniverary?

    ReplyDelete
  73. OK! That's the kind of days I like!! I rarely had the occasion to receive almost 80 messages of love in one day! I tell you what: IT FEELS GOOD!

    Like Haxo said, I have to continue!!

    Thank you very much to those who posted a special photo on their for this anniversary, thank you to Michael for the Happy birthday tune, to Monica for your cake - you're right the first link does not work - and yes, there will be a picnic in July!

    Time for me to prepare my tomorrow's post.

    Thanks again everyone, I love you all!

  74. What, you mean, you don't even get a DAY OFF on your blog's birthday?!! tsk, tsk, tsk...

  79. Hi Eric, congratulations on making it to 2 years. The idea of a daily photoblog is fantastic, and one of the best uses of blogging I've seen. You even inspired me to try starting my own semi-daily blog of life in outback Australia. I've missed a few days though, when I get more organised I might add a Mount Isa daily photo to the list.
    Well done.
