“…always walking together, hand in hand, in a strangely beautiful world…”
– Khalil Gibran
Converging people achieve remarkable things.
These last few weeks I have been lucky enough to converge with some wonderful people here during WordPress Photo 101.
I’ve learned a lot, laughed a lot. Yes, even cried a little.
So, for this week’s WordPress Weekly Challenge, I’d like to introduce some new friends.
See Eastern Europe through the eyes of a self confessed negativist existentialist (who actually is anything but negative) with a thing about cats and railways and who almost convinced us that converge was a swear word Mara Eastern’s Personal Blog – a life in pictures and words
Take a look at the Netherlands, and Brazil, with my almost neighbour lucile de godoy – bridging lacunas
Explore Justine’s eclectic world, into which I insisted on introducing aliens, at Eclectic odds n sods – Parenting, Pet Tales, Humour & Photography
And meet Mitch with whom I discussed Thunderbirds, atomic powered jets and drew comparisons with Ansel Adams at Exploratorius – Photo Hack & Curious Wanderer
And yes, selecting which few to show here was a very very tough choice, there were so many sharing their photos, their words, their time.
I raise a glass and a smile to everyone with whom I have converged these last weeks and say a big thank you for the words, smiles and friendship we have shared.
And a huge thank you to the team at WordPress who made it all happen.
I hope we will all converge again soon.
To live, laugh, cry and love a little.

Please don’t make me cry again. First the photo — I’m a sucker for these miniature people of yours — and then your post… Converge it, I’m off to curl up in the corner and cry. I will never get any work done today. Thank you for the beautiful post and your kind words all the same.
Actually, I thank you, and making you cry at least twice in one day is both touching and upsetting…talk again soon…
Talk again soon, yes, that will be my reward and motivation for stopping crying and getting something FINALLY done. My boss is really angry with me already.
I hope she is gentle with you…
Thank you! I think many of our fellow classmates will agree with your sentiments – I know I do!!
Thank you, it has been fun!
lovely photo! your features on these miniatures are just spectacular.
Thank you, I have become very attached to them…
You need a miniature of yourself, camera in hand and probably in black and white. Perhaps also in the car from which you shared many photos from. Then sneak up to the displays and pop it there!! 😀
V cool 😉
A beautiful ending to this challenge! I’m delighted to have met you 🙂
Thank you! And I am delighted to have met you also 🙂

Awe I am humbled and deeply touched thank you. A emotive photo as always and a great tribute to an adventure we have all had together of all sorts and not the end but the beginning of another chapter 🙂 no more crying today for me……

Oh how wonderful! At home trying a collage with photoshop and going *converge*
Ive jusr got skme bad tempered deer woth my phone my youngest was pooping himself hah! Im trying to decide photoshop or lightroom? Any opinions?
Multitasking! V impressive. I use Aperture on my mac to organise and Photoshp to play, lightroom can do organising and editing and is supposed to be v good, althiugh i prefer aperture so…and is ee i cn no loner tyoe
Lol re typos and wow i just had to report a woman ro the police whi was repeatesly allowing her dog to terrorise the deer and their babies ir was chasing them towards the park tradfic. She didnt care she even had leads on her and refused to put it back on the lead even though it returned. I photographed her allowinf it to do it three more tines 😦
