Photo of the Year 2007


This view of the rear of St Thomas the Apostle on Lumn Road was taken from Tinkers Passage. I posted a view of the front of the church on May 30th 2007 and in June a close-up of the bell tower.

Visitors to this blog were asked to vote for their favourite photos from twelve contenders. St Thomas the Apostle beat Captain Clarke Bridge by 157 votes to 152. The runner-up can be seen on Ackworth born, gone West together with full details of the voting and comments on the twelve contenders. All 12 photographs can be viewed at Best of Hyde Daily Photo 2007.


This month I am not attempting to create a list of permalinks to participating blogs. Instead I have compiled a list of those blogs that registered on the CDPB forum to run with the theme. They are listed in chronological order with links to their earliest relevant archived post. This may not be the actual start date of the blog. I won't be adding blogs who didn't register for the theme, or who registered at the last minute. The information regarding authors and start dates is taken from Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New.

Did someone stumble over the tombstones? It seems to be falling. haha..

I thought I could come over and get the updates of who have posted their Theme Day here, but you changed tactics. LOL...

Beautiful church. Happy New Year!

I couldn't decide and am leaving it up to the votes. I narrowed my down to seven. Yikes! Hate to say I just couldn't pick one. Come take a look and put your vote in.

Thanks for the music suggestion...I figured out how tweak the settings so that it doesn't automatically launch.

Happy New Year!

Josy said...

I never cease to be amazed by the amount of time and effort you put into this community. Listing blogs in the order in which they started makes for a fairly unique and interesting piece of history... and it's history about us, the photobloggers!

Thanks for all the energy you've channelled into the group, and have a happy 2008!

Eric said...

Superbe ! It's for sure a very nice photo, I love the tombstones especially. Thank you for taking part in the City Daily Photo community. Bonne année de Paris!

pusa said...

Wendy said...

Looks like a nice resting place, be it above or below ground. Thanks for all the help you've provided as I became a new blogger. Happy New Year to you!!

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

The photo is really nice and reminds me that English colours and architecture, I love.

Then I appreciated so much you remembered my photo. Happy New Year Gerald !!!

Please, may I ask you to add my blog on the list on the right?

Kim said...

Happy New Year, Gerald! Although my fave of yours was the bridge, this one won a place in my heart, too. I poke about in old church yards and cemeteries doing historical research, and since I have a lot of ancestors from the region where you live, I may someday find myself poking about near Hyde. . .and will feel right at home because of your blog. Many thanks for all you do for the rest of us through the year. You are one of the most generous, hardworking members of our CDPB community, and that is very much appreciated by all of us!

Greetings from sunny Texas Gerald! Thank you for your well wishes and here's to you and your family -- a new year filled with much love, laughter and happiness. I will look forward to my growing friendships with my DP buddies.

Jules said...

Good choice Gerald. I love the theatre royal photo too - beautiful!!!

I love how you have listed all the blogs and their starter dates but it does make me feel very sad that i am just unable to visit as many as i would like. it takes an hour to visit 6 blogs and leave a comment on a good day!!! So I can really only visit some of those that visit me!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND THANKS FOR ALL YOUR INPUT INTO OUR WONDERFULLY SUCCESSFUL BLOG fAMILY!!!

Nikon said...

I don't remember which one I voted for :-) But I like this one!

Nice choice - I feel I know something more about Hyde from seeing it. Thanks for all you (obsessively) do for the DP family!


Happy New Year to you and yours and here's to a wonderful 2008 for the Daily City Photo Blog community.

The photo certainly has a different atmosphere, like peace and quiet.

Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila. Do swing by my other sites to leave your footprints behind. Read: lovely comments. :)

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
