And Now The End Is Near…

After 5½ years of photo blogging at this site and 6½ years at my other photography site Through A Lay(wo)man’s lens, I considered merging the two blogs. In the end, it somehow didn’t seem fitting to merge them.

Which is why I finally made the decision last week to start over with a completely new blog. I thought it would be a long process to start fresh – what with figuring out a blog name, what to post, which theme, whether to buy a domain or not – but was then surprised how quickly I knew how I wanted everything to be. Sometimes – especially with so many years of blogging experience behind you – it’s easier to know what you don’t want, and that’s how I was able to make up my mind so fast.

I also had help from Laura, who recently gave up her two blogs to create PoetryPix. Talking to her about domain buying, deciding what I wanted to show on the new blog and what I wanted to use it for made it much clearer to me what I wanted and needed to do.

This blog will stay online for the time being, but I won’t be posting anything new here.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by & followed over the years, I have always appreciated every visit and every comment.

If you want to take a look at the new blog, you’ll find it at
