Retiring Greenville Daily Photo

After more than 7 years of contributing to Greenville Daily Photo, I am ‘retiring’ from this hobby and taking up new hobbies.

The photo above is one of my first from 2011, taken at the corner of Washington and Main Streets of the construction site soon to become Project One. On the far left side of the ‘lake’ is a parking garage, which has become the location of the Aloft hotel. Then to the right is the Bank of America building which is still there, but the lower level has been renovated to host retail space. The foreground construction area hosts the 1 North Main buildings – the building time lapse was Here and Here

I tried to capture tiny slices of life in Greenville. Much like the early days of Twitter where it was a challenge to condense thoughts to fit within 140 characters, it is a challenge to capture something in a single photograph when possible. Or to keep a sharp eye out for an interesting photo by re-thinking something conventional with a slight change in composition.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Thanks to all guests who contributed pictures via Flickr or Email.

Special thanks to Denton Harryman who continued to host the web site after moving out of the Greenville area.

    Thanks so much for doing this for so long! I subscribed in my RSS feed about a year before I moved to Greenville as I was falling in love with this little city. In the five years I lived there I was thrilled on a couple occasions to spot myself in some of the photos you’ve shared. And in the time since I’ve left GVL this is one stalwart in my newsfeed I’ve always been sure to open to see what new and exciting changes you’ve documented or gems you’ve revealed that I never noticed in my years there. Thank you!!

      Thank you for sharing your experience. It’s interesting that I caught a reader in one of these photos! It was always fun to come across some unusual corner of the city and be able to share it.

    I will miss seeing little pieces of gvl everyday! It’s crazy how much downtown has changed in the past 5-10 years! I was sad to see ‘Paris daily photo’ retire a few years ago to… that was also one of my favorites to check too.

    Greenville has had a special place in my heart for a long time. I’ve only ever had the privilege of living there briefly ten years ago and this blog really helped keep my connection. I am sad to see that it’s retiring. Best of luck in your new hobbies and thank you for keeping Greenville close to me for so long.
