A Goodbye for Now...

Over the past few months I've been thinking a lot about the direction I want to go in, and what I want to achieve both personally and for my family going forward.  After some careful consideration, I've decided to step away from the blog for a little while.

I've been feeling lately like I need to make a little bit more time for myself and for my family and although writing the blog is truly wonderful, I don't want to be tied to a computer for all of this summer. I want to have the freedom to step away from writing, and shooting when I don't want to, and take a little bit of time off and enjoy life with my family.

In addition, I also want to move in a slightly different direction with my photography, being more creative and exploring other genres, and also professionally, by offering learning tools for photographers and mentoring for those just starting out on their photography path. This is something I have been itching to do for a while now, but unfortunately never seem to get enough time to work on!  So, I'll be using the time away from the blog to consider and research this a bit more fully, and hopefully start to bring these ideas to life. I'm really excited about it, and I hope some of you are too!

If you haven't already done so, please take a moment to "like" the Facebook page, I will update that with any relevant /  interesting info that comes up, and with details of when I'm likely to be back when I have a clearer picture.  

Thank you for all reading the blog up to now, and for your incredible encouragement over the last couple of years - I hope you've enjoyed reading it as much as I have writing it!

So, it's goodbye for now - I hope you all have a wonderful time over the next weeks without me :)

Thank you Hana! Just needing a little time to re-group, then hopefully come back with something better than ever!

Thank you for giving of your talents so fully! I'm certain that much work and dedication is required behind-the-scenes to bring this wonderful content to readers. I've been very inspired by what you do but, as a busy mom myself, have not always taken the time to truly say "thanks!" So thank you. And best of luck!

This is one of the best photo-blogs I have come across - and I always enjoyed your updated posts. Enjoy your summer, your exploration and being a MOM. I hope to see you posting again in the future - but if it doesn't happen then it means you've found that 'something' that is just as wonderful to spend your time on. Make every moment count!

so is the 52 project on break for summer? you will be missed.

Totally understandable, but you will be sorely missed! Thank you so much for giving your time and knowledge so generously on your blog. I got my first DSL camera at the end of last year and was at a bit of a loss and was soooo happy when I found your blog, it was exactly what I needed. I’ll really miss the Project 52 prompts too, that has been a lot of fun. Have a lovely summer and all the best with your new endeavours.

The Project 52 is going to continue - I forgot to mention that! They will be posted on the Flickr page instead x

Thank you so much, I saw the prompts on the Flickr page after I posted my comment, I'm so glad it is still on :)
