Hi from Firefly

WOW! So here I am. Taking over the Port Elizabeth Daily Photo from my blog idols. At the start of December 2007 I didn't even know what a blog was and stumbled onto the PEDP blog after following a link from a Google Alert. I popped in every now and then and soon became a regular follower. Being a keen photographer, I started to wonder if I could do my own photo blog and on 9 July 2008 I took the big step into the blogosphere, starting The Firefly Photo Files. All because of Sue and Max. They were my inspiration and if it wasn't for them I would never have gotten into blogging. Big was my surprise this week when I received an e-mail from Sue asking me if I would be interested in taking over PEDP. I was speechless... but very honoured that they considered me to take over their baby. And it is a challenge I am savouring. I will still be doing The Firefly Photo Files. Although Port Elizabeth features prominently there, I cover everything from the world I live and travel in as well as nature, animals, birds, plants and so much more. The two blogs will actually compliment each other very nicely.
This is not the start of a new journey, but the continuation of an old one. So I hope all the loyal PEDP followers will keep on coming back for their daily Port Elizabeth fix.

I was wondering what to do as my first picture, so for my first Port Elizabeth Daily Photo post I decided on the same photo I started with on The Firefly Photo Files. Sunrise over Hobie Beach. Enjoy the ride!

    thank you for the pleasure I had to see many pictures of dear old PE. If I find more pictures of my time there (1955 to 1961) I will send them to firefly so that he can share them with past and present Portelizabethans.
    Good luck for your new life and many thanks to Firefly for having accepted to take over
