This week marked the five year anniversary of Towleroad, and I just wanted to thank everyone for reading and coming back. Since October 2003, we've generated 10,750 posts, 163,400 comments, and carved out a place I'm proud to come to every day. I'd also like to thank Michael Goff, my partner in this endeavor, who keeps things running behind the scenes. It's exciting and humbling to get to do what I do for work on a daily basis.
That said, I've let slip a tradition of explaining the banners posted at the top of the site and I apologize. This post should fill in the gap. I hope you find it interesting.
Our last banner was a photo of a deer I took on Fire Island at the end of the summer. I cropped it and added a slight tilt-shift effect to give it its fuzzy edges.
The banner prior to that I shot the night of Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. What a night that was. I've never felt so much positive energy in one place. I have hope that on November 4th we'll be feeling that energy again.
