A few words about Wordless Wednesday

The uncropped version of my first Wordless Wednesday photo for La France Profonde

On November 7, 2007, I posted what was to become the first in a series of 100 "Wordless Wednesday" photos.

I didn't even know I was participating in a weekly blogosphere event, and in fact I never got into posting my photos to the official "Wordless Wednesday" site.

This photo got 16 comments, however -- probably a record for my Wordless Wednesdays.

In keeping with the January NaBloPoMo theme of "Friends", it's fascinating for me to see who commented on this photo over three years ago.

In fact, I'm still in touch with many of the commenters, whether through blogs, Facebook or Twitter:



Randal -- it was his first comment.


If you're reading this blog, you probably know at least one of them.

I'm not planning on doing Wordless Wednesdays any more, but may use Wednesdays as an excuse to excavate through comments past...


  1. I sure know who DeeDee is! Happy NaBloPoMO

  2. Hey, here you are! We've "known" each other for quite awhile now. I like that :)

  3. Such an interesting shot!
    Yes, I recognize a few of those names...

  4. Do the McDonald's over there get their own special cheesy catchphrase?
