In honour of Eric Tenin -The Godfather of City Daily Photo

Praise be to Eric Tenin

5th Year celebration of Paris Daily Photo


Many of us over the years have probably had what we thought was a unique brainwave, a daily photo of the place we live. Sorry folks, myself included, and I am a brainwave kind of a lass, Eric had the conception, is the Godfather of the original Daily Photo. What better city too in my absolute favourite country in the whole wide world but a Daily Photo of Paris, France.

Today we in the City Daily Photo community are honouring the founder in his trademark style " from the ground up" genre of image with one taken from where we reside. From the rank amateur to the more accomplished professional all are welcome in the community, from one horse town to the biggest cities in the world and it is Eric we have to thank for bringing us all together under the umbrella of a website community to show our place to the world.

Congratulations Eric, and long may you reign so long as you understand I am still Queen B of my island.

IT's only fitting the Queen B makes another appearance on the Birthday of CDP!! We would never have met had it not been for our dear Eric, now would we! Let 's raise a glass to the dear boy.

HRH Babooshka,
He's our papa alright! Lots of ducklings in the brood now after 5 years, eh? :-) Great to see your post in tribute to Eric, oh Queen of Man (and only you could pull THAT off!).

Yes indeed, Queen "B", I do believe you could do that. And a fitting anniversary gift to the king you have presented with it's brooding kind of Manx flavor.

Nice to see you back again.

Hilda said...

LOL! This will probably be the cheekiest tribute post today, and I love it! Thanks for the smile, my dear Queen B. It's wonderful that you graced us with your presence during this special day. Be well. :)

I agree with Hilda. Yes, Long live Eric's reign and yours, Queen B of Isle of Man! Bravo to you both!

Jilly said...

Love it! A beautiful tribute to Eric and a gentle reminder who is the Queen of the Isle of Man! Very nice.

You do have a way of setting the community buzzing, Queen B. Excellent tribute to the king of CDP, but what else could we expect.

Babooshka said...

hank you all for the generous comments. I wouldn't be me if I didn't add a little bit of in yer face cheek. On another not so serious note expect a visitation on yer own blogs soon from Moi! You have been warned of my cheeky comments in advance.

Halcyon said...

I like your take on the theme. That place looks foreboding.

Babooshka said...

More likely Forbidding me after what I write.

Babooshka, excellent timeless image with strength and character and the Tenin perspective

The Sin Bin awaits Your Majesty!

Petrea said...

A perfect Babooshka tribute, Queen B. I hope Eric makes the rounds and sees them all.

Now I must go ask Virginia what the Sin Bin is.

Your pictures are beautiful! Some friends from NZ visited me then went on to the isle of man. They said it was most lovely there. Their names were also Ramsay. Small world!

Babooshka said...

Even smaller world Prairie Walker. Isle of Man, folks from here in NZ.
