Hi everyone

Back after a couple of months absence. Gary, I apologise upfront for the impending grief this photo may cause - lol - don't look at it! Marc, thankyou for your concern and I feel somewhat guilty for not explaining my absence. I really love this site but it is easily addictive and I was spending far too much time and not getting much else done.

I do some volunteering work with children but on a totally different bent, also with adults affected by the aftermath of suicide. Unfortunately we have been touched by the devastation of suicide with the death of our son 2 years ago. I hope this is not too much infomation. But you see, I did come through it and feel I can offer hope to others when you can feel so very hopeless. I couldn't even touch my camera for months after Darin died but photography is definitely one of the things that also helped save me. That and a loving husband and daughter.

This isn't meant to be 'heavy', it's just how things are. If anyone did have any comments or questions you can PM me or whatever, nothing is taboo and I absolutely believe we are HERE for each other.

Have a great weekend, bestest, Jenny

Great image, and a sad story,

I had only taken holiday snaps untill, some issues effected me, and I think you are very brave to talk about things.. my camera helped me to get my life back together, or at least somthing to hide behind
I wish you all well....

King Regards

Ian..

A fabulous shot - is it your dendrobate?

I too have found that immersing myself in a hobby can be useful when getting through difficult times.
Good to see you back.

Jenny its so good to hear from you again....have had a short break from the site myself...as you say it is very addictive...I totally agree we are here for each other Jenny, so if you need an ear any time dont hesitate ! doers and listeners often neglect their own needs...look after your self too.
Super frog, love the contrast of the blue with the browns and the detail. Once again you have managed to catch the eyes looking your way as if posing for you.
Love Rosie.

It's a gem! What variety of life forms and colour does nature provide for us to be amazed and stand in awe. This is "awsome," indeed! Love its contrast to the background. Your photo shows clearly and beautifully all there is to see! Absolutely stunning! Certainly a fav!
