  1. Don – Good to finally catch up with you. The demise of G+ knocked me out of your daily snowflake loop. Listened to a few of your podcasts today and I’m hooked. Keep up the good work my friend. and I’m looking forward to future episodes.

    • Glad you found my podcast, William! My daily snowflake series stopped just before the demise of Google+ as I do about 70 of them a season now. Starts up again elsewhere on December 1st! Glad you’re enjoying Photo Geek Weekly, the next episode should be published tomorrow. Please write a review wherever you subscribe – it helps quite a bit to get a bigger audience!
