For the time being …

I am saying au revoir.

I’ve enjoyed Daily Photo for the hundred-and-some posts I’ve done, but when something you got into for fun starts being an obligation, it’s time to rethink the whole thing. So I am signing off, at least for the time being. At the end of next week I am leaving for Europe for a couple of weeks, and when I return, I want to move on and pursue some different photographic and writing projects.

I may be back a bit later. But in the meantime, I hope you’ll visit my other blog, Passante’s World, on which I post pictures and commentaries relating to my life in Washington, DC and farther afield—which will include Naples, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast after October 22.

I appreciate your support.

    As long as we have one website where we can enjoy your fine work (and it doesn’t become too much for you), it’s ok. And I’m not just talking about the photos, I’m talking about the writing.

    Have a good trip, and thank you for all the beauty and information.

    Ah, I shall definitely visit. Hope your trip to Europe (lucky you…sigh!) is wonderful! It’s been fun seeing your photos. Thank you.

    Hi Passante,
    I wish you a wonderful journey in the south of Italy.
    Give some news…
    Best regards.

    Hope you have a fruitful trip in Europe. Will visit your other blog. Maybe you will change your mind when you are back from Europe and continue to post pictures of Washington D.C 🙂

    Passante – I will switch the link on my blogroll from this site to Passante’s World. I know exactly what you mean about how tough the blogging bit can get. It is still my main hobby, but I am still trying to rethink the whole deal of feeling compelled to write an entry every single day. I think that I may soon decide to skip weekends (but use to time to write entries that I can use during the week.) People seem to comment less on weekends anyway.

    Glad you’ll still keep the doors open to Passante’s World. It’s an interesting world over there. As the truckers say, catch you on the flip flop.
