A new life

By posty57
Many, many thanks to all who voted/commented on my last image. Your time is always very much appreciated.

This is my last image for quite a while. The start of a new direction for my photography, and a certain dissatisfaction make this inevitable. Please read my last blog to get some idea of what I am on about Wink

Many, many thanks to everyone who have supported my photographs, and given so much encouragement to me over quite a long time. To you all I say a very BIG thank you, and I wish you all only my best wishes. There is a fantastic bunch of people on this site, and some fantastically talented photographers. I have learned a lot from them, and been humbled and gratfied by there amazing comments on some of my images.

Look after yourselves, and I will be back sometimes to make sure you are all behaving as mischievously as possible Wink

Take care

The VS can be switched off, Barry, and it is only being tested. I think the idea is that it runs long enough for the cream to rise to the top, you'll always get someone who will use a negative vote out of sheer cussedness. Or just ignore it like many are doing.

I will miss the excellence and artistry of your floral images, but hopefully you will still be around from time to time.

Take care,

Good luck with whatever direction your photography takes you, Barry: I too was not enamoured with the new system and just opted out.
I, like many, will miss your beautiful images.
All the best.

I love all those whisps and such pretty colour.

Like many, I've also opted out of VS so it never bothers me. But you must do what you feel best for yourself. It's a shame.

Superb shot !!!....another beautifully created & artistic piece....1st class !!

I can sympathize with your views on the VS system....but I don't take it at all seriously, & the results & outcome
doesn't bother me at all !!'s too 'frivolous' to rattle-my-cage' !!!

Really sorry you won't be around too often....your images are an inspiration to us all !!!......but look forward to
seeing more of your lovely work, when you're ready !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.Smile

Farewell for a While

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

this is gorgeous work Barry.
Love the comment 'as mischievously as possible' - reminds me of the Weasley twins from Harry Potter - my favourite characters - "I solemnly swear I am up to no good"
Glad to have you back, you're an inspiration - don't leave
