It's a national holiday here in the US (the banks are closed, government offices, and so on), and our offices are closed today as well, as we celebrate the beginning of a New Year.

My humble thanks to everyone who visited me here on the blog this year; to all my wonderful guest bloggers who shared their wisdom and images; to all the folks who offered my readers special deals and free-stuff on "Free Stuff Thursdays" and to everybody who said a nice word, had my back, made me smile, and made writing this blog so much fun this past year. Also, a big thanks to my assistant Brad Moore who helped so much once again this year in making sure every Wednesday and Thursday went off without a hitch. Thanks Brad (you rock!).

I read every single comment posted here during the year and your words of encouragement, support and friendship mean more than you know. What a wonderful time to be a photographer and a "Photoshop Guy."

Here's wishing you and your family your very best year yet!!!

Warm regards,

Scott and my wonderful crew here at Kelby Media Group, down in warm, toasty Tampa, Florida
