Up against the sky made a silhouette show
On 21st October 2004, Joe Tree took a photo on his way to work, and decided to challenge himself by documenting his life; one photo per day.
He shared his photos with his friends.
His friends liked the idea and asked to join in.
Joe's idea became a social website with one focus: One Photo every Day, taken that day (unless we cheat or caught out).
those friends shared with their friends, and what started out as a little tree, grew strong and heavy with branches.
and now.... it's a company .... owned by those who take the photos, and run by a lovely team of volunteers who also take photos.
I sit in my wee corner and document my little life. I don't partake too much in challenges or discussions. I renew my membership. I smile at my share certificate and for the last 11 years, I've faithfully taken a photo and shared it with the Blip community.
I've brought quite a few people on board - friends from other Social media and family. Remember we used to have a wee family tree? I loved that. I was so proud of my wee collection. I think i had 14 branches.
here's a tree.
To celebrate that little seedling which grew to be a great big tree.
