Sunday Fifty-Two Views of the Gulf Finale

Well, here it is. I managed to make a slide show out of the fifty-two pictures taken each week for the last year. I hope you enjoy the montage since this feature will be changing next week. I have decided to accept the majority suggestion on my poll last week and start what could be called Fifty-Two Views of the Neighborhood. More on that later. For now, I hope you enjoy the slide show.

I also want to thank all of you for staying with me on this little journey. When you condense a year into slightly over two minutes, it gives one reason to pause and thank those who shared the time.

Big thanks.


  1. Looking forward to next year, John.

    1. Thanks, Keith.We’ll see how it works out.

  2. Count me in as one who loved the montage, John!! I believe I enjoyed the dusk-to-evening shots the best.

    1. Thanks so much. Was fun to do.

  3. What a nice thing to do for us, John. Thank you.
    After I thought about it, I realized that view of the gulf was probably (at least comparatively) the most quick & easy way to do this kind of post. Do whatever works best for you. We’ll still be here, having a cup of Sunday morning coffee with you. Mega hugs!

    1. Don’t forget to grab a croissant with wild strawberry jam. Thanks Teagan. Hugs

      1. oooh now that sounds good. The bagel I had was a dud… Oh well — there’s always lunch. 😉

      2. Love bagels but can’t get good ones here.

  4. Your pictures each week helped get me through my beachlust. And the slide show was beautiful.

    1. Thank you so much Pamela. 🙂

  5. I enjoyed that so much I was sad when it ended! Perfect music.

    1. Aw. Don’t be sad.Maybe a better thing is coming.

  6. It’s actually quite soothing to watch, John. Nicely done.

    1. Thanks, Dan. If I ever do another I will block a spot to take the photo.

  7. Thanks for showing me what I missed this year.

    1. Ha ha ha. Anytime.

  8. Very cool. Doesn’t feel like it went for a year.

  9. Wonderful and accompanied by some beautiful and soothing music. Just what I needed this morning.

  10. That was really cool to see it all condensed like that. It was a great project, and the moods of the Gulf come across more clearly in the slideshow.

    1. Thanks Craig. It does change every day.

  11. Love it, John. 😀

  12. This was awesome, John! I always look forward to your Sunday posts. What a treat this was.

    1. Thanks jill. 🙂

  13. Love it much, John — thank you! And I’ll be interested to tag along on the next installment of your Sunday posts.

  14. Wonderful seeing some of those photos again, John. Your photography told a story and while the music played I got a sense of how truly unique your little corner of the world is. You’ll be thankful you have this video to watch from time to time. So peaceful. ♡

    1. Thanks Audrey. I think I will enjoy it for some time.

      1. The payoff better than you could have imagined, my guess.

      2. It did turn out better than I thought. The perfectionist in me wished I could have mounted a camera in one spot but it still looks good.

      3. You perfectionists shouldn’t be so hard on yourselves. You did well, Sir. 🙂

      4. Thanks Audrey. 🙂

  15. Thanks for the mind trip,John.
    Seriously, I loved it.

    1. And without drugs. Amazing.

  16. What a lovely slide slow, John! Viewing it this way we can see subtle changes from week to week. Watching it, one cannot help but marvel at the beauty.

    1. Thanks Michelle. Glad you liked it.

  17. Nice compilation.

    1. Thank you. Big compliment from someone as talented as you with photos

      1. Pah, photography is 99% knowing where to stand.
