Passing The Point Of No Return

I've known this day was coming for a little while, a point of no return, without the deranged opera ghost. This post is my 902nd post in the blog- and in a tie with my writer's blog today, as I'm publishing my 902nd post there today. Since I only post there three times a week, that means the photoblog now takes over the lead in posts between the two. Which is going to stay that way- I'd never keep up trying to post writing blogs every day!

Here are some of the finished works that I showed you in progress yesterday.

  8. @Debs: it helps that I started the writing blog years earlier.

    @Tomas: indeed!

    @Orvokki: they did good work.

    @Marianne: at some point later this year this one will hit a thousand.

    @Grace: and less devious than real squirrels.

    @Deb: thanks!

    @Stuart: they are short lived.

  9. 902? Bravo! Few people realize how much work goes into maintaining a photo blog. Definitely, a labor of love! Nice series of ice sculptures.

  14. @SRQ: I tend to do a lot in advance- at present, I've got nearly a month's worth of posts prepped to one degree or another.

    @Furry Gnome: thanks!

    @Marie: they are artistic.

    @MB: the ice is more beautiful, I think.

    @Country Gal: my schedule for the writing blog tends to go three days a week. That I can manage.

    @Cloudia: thanks!

    @Whisk: thank you!

  15. These sculptures have less detail but they use the clarity of the ice for some good contrast.

  20. I have a hard enough time keeping up with one blog! Congrats to you. The finished products are perfect.

  21. I'm wondering how many of these elegant creations are in place.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So beautiful!
    Ah... the I can't keep up syndrome... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. These people did really well! They must have practiced before!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, 902! Congratulations! And you are getting so close to 1000....!
    Love all the finished works. They are so beautiful!

  25. @Red: I think the carvers behind the big sculptures moved on after the first week. I know there's a competition up in Alaska that probably involves some of the same carvers.

    @VP: I did like these ones!

    @Sharon: I wondered for awhile when it would end up matching up, these two.

    @Noke: thank you!

    @Janey: for awhile when I first started with the writing blog I was going at more of a pace. It's easier keeping up with posting each day on a photoblog.

    @Jacob: I think ten to twelve of these ice sculptures ringing the fountain probably does the trick. Any more and it gets crowded.

    @Ciel: fortunately these days I can pace myself!

    @RedPat: I wonder if some of them come from the Ottawa School Of Art. That would explain a good deal about their work carving.

    @Tamago: I'll hit 1000 here in three months or so, and possibly over at the writer's blog before year's end.

  31. It looks like there may be some contenders for a more prestigious place next year.
    Congrats on 902! (I must say that one blog is entirely enough for me!)

  32. That's 1804... pretty impressive! And you must spend hours visiting other blogs and posting on CDP.
