Today is a very special day! I have the pleasure to invite you to celebrate the first anniversary of the Photo Rehab, which was born after the Photo 101 course held in November 2014.
This was the opening post Photo101 Rehab that I dedicated to the first patients of the The Clinic Photo Rehab, my blogger friends Andy Townend, Cardinal Guzman, Desleyjane, Justine Nagaur and Mara Eastern and more ‘patients’ joined the fun. I’m eternally grateful to have met them during the course and for their ongoing support to this idea. A huge hug to all of them.
The first plan was to run the Photo Rehab only during the month of December, and at the end I posted a summary of all photos of the participants below that could be found at Inlinkz: It is a Wrap – Photo101 Rehab
But by that time the ‘patients’ experienced withdrawal symptoms, and wanted to carry on the adventure, so I officially opened the Photo Rehab on January 2015 with this post: The Clinic – Photo Rehab is Open Again
The Photo Rehab grew as a stronger community of photo lovers, regardless of being or not professional photographers, as our common goal has been to share our photos and experiments with the techniques we learned, join each others’ challenges, or simply keep in contact.
In time, The Photo Rehab had the privilege and honor to partner with these fantastic photobloggers, who host photo events at theirs and this blog:
Desley and I also begun to host the Cover Makeover weekly challenge.
If you haven’t seen yet any of these challenges and all photos submitted by bloggers in Wrap ups of these challenges, go and see them. If you have not joined or visited the Flickr group created by Mitch, give it a try. If you are already appreciating the Sunday Wrap up of the Photo Rehab, you may have noticed that there are around 950 photo entries at Inlinkz, where bloggers add their photos and make them available to all who want to see them.
Besides the pioneers’ bloggers mentioned above, there are so many more to mention, who became loyal ‘patients’ of the Photo Rehab. You can find all of them in Inlinkz and in the Sunday Wrap up. Please visit them as you won’t regret the beauty and diversity of views that you will find.
Heartfelt thanks to all of you who joined the ride, either as a host, ‘patient’ or a visitor, making the Photo Rehab, a community of Photobloggers worth joining.
I wish you all even more inspiration and creativity, and hope to celebrate with you many happy returns!
