Well almost.. 10 more days to go..
IMHO I have learned so very much in the past 12 months... Not only about taking and editing my photos but I have also learn many new things about this place we all call home!

I started this project this a.m. never thinking I'd get it done anytime soon.. but here it is..

Every a.m. I sit down with my favorite coffee cup and check on TL.. Today after pouring my coffee the idea came to me.. You see this cup was a souvenir from our trip to Washington DC this year.. (see ws for the real cup...) That is how I came up with the idea.. I was 1st going to put the names with the dates but the dates proved extremely time consuming.. SO if you see your country and know the estb. date fell free to add it so I can do a ws and add them later! :)

I took a few photos of my cup at the table
Uploaded to PSE5 cloned out the words on the cup then selected the bg to color black
opened the 19 photo layout...
back to the cup added my text.. sorry if I forgot anyone.. But did add the 1st cup for all of TL... :)

Here is looking forward to the next 12 months..

Hi Trish,
So we joined TL almost together. You surprise us with a very nice and unique posting of these coffee cups. Indeed I drunk litres of coffee meanwhile "treklensing" :-)
Excellent posting my dear TL-member Trichia.
Hope have you for many more years here on TL.

:) Later.....

Next Friday, 17th of August I celebrate my 1st TL-birthday. I hope to do this together with Sweety!

Hi Tricia,
What a wonderful way to celebrate 1 year on TL.
It looks fantastic all those yellow cups on the black BG! And for sure our small country is in there. And space left if you have forgotten a country. Double congratulations!!
Thanks for sharing this moment with all of us.

Hello Tricia,

(how you like ' them appels'' ? )

Trish.. I remember clearly one of your first photo's .. the horses and inmediatly I noticed ' skill'in your work!

Sure..I know.. we are all ' amatures', so am I.., but amatures with a capital A for you. You also inspired your daughter and this darling is doing fine too.. thanks to your push

A good bridge in Mom - Daughter relationship. Trish.. I admit I miss a few photo's of you now and than.. but trust me ..I love almost all! Big hug from the Jury in the Netherlands:

A beautiful presentation here and an innovative idea. Nice color scheme in a friendly manner. Excellent work my friend, well done.

Thank for sharing this image.

Congrats on the 1 year mark. I like this photo but perhaps the United Kingdom should have been a tea cup...heheh.
I think it's very cool that you took the time to do this. It has the black BG, the great yellow to contrast the BG. Very well presented.
Here's to many more on TL.

Hehe ... nicely done! Very eyecatching, great light and sharpness and, of course, oustanding PP work.
