Finale – to End where I Began

It has now been a little over a year since I began this blog and I have posted every day since. It has been a wonderful experience and I thank you all for your likes, comments and follows. In particular, many of the comments I have received have really touched me – the time you have taken to write these wonderful comments and the wonderful poems that have been created based on my photos. I thank you all.

In turn, I have discovered some wonderful blogs and I look forward to seeing more of all of your work. It is time for this blog to end. Thank you again. πŸ™‚

  1. Oh no! I did not expect this! You have inspired me every day. I have become a better poet and prose writer because your photographs, with all their nuances and depth, have moved me to strive for more in my writing. I hope we will stay in touch!

    1. Wow thank you so much. I have always been so honoured and touched by your writing based on my photos. Thank you again so very much πŸ˜€

  4. Well this is a shock, Dave, but I do have some idea of how much hard work you’ve put into your year’s blogging. I wish you well with whatever else you are planning. I’ve enjoyed seeing your pictures. Adrian πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Adrian – your insights and comments have always been such a pleasure to read and I absolutely adore your blog. I’m still up for meeting up someday πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you and I’m sorry πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ thank you for all of your support and lovely comments on my posts πŸ˜€

  5. Dave: I hate to see you close your blog. I understand though. You’ve always done a geat job. I’m sure you’ve taught a good many newbees the art of photography and the hard work it takes to be a good photographer. Let us know when you’re ready to come back. Good luck! You’ll be missed out here.

  6. Sorry to see you to go. You will have a good reason I hope. Maybe a new blog in preparation ? I hope so. It was a pleasure to folow your blog, even for a relative short time. I wish you all the best !

  7. Ah, Dave, bless you and thank you. For your caring in sharing with us the fruits of your investigative and instinctive eye and your imaginative mind and heart. And for your new discernment, for there are times to begin and times to end, and, in this latter, times to begin something else. So, dear brother, carry on! And, just so you know, I have a “Pix” file filled with your photographs. Never have I used them – and I never will – for anything other than looking at them anew, especially when life has laid me low and I have needed (for I am a highly visual person concerning how I receive and process information) solace and strength. Again, I thank you. Peace and, again, carry on!

  8. Dave, I will miss your posts so much! I wish you wouldn’t delete your site. Best wishes for you and your family. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

    1. Thank you so much John!! I am going to miss your wonderful comments πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ thank you so much for all of your support and the lovely β€˜comment chats’ we have had πŸ˜€

    1. Awww what a lovely thing to say – thank you and thank you for all of your support and lovely comments πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  9. Beautiful photo. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. I will be sorry to see you go. I have enjoyed your daily inspiring and beautiful photos.

  10. A beautiful photo a day for a year – great blog project! I enjoyed the daily viewing. Maybe in a few years you’ll want to do it again! In the meantime, stay well and keep taking wonderful photos.

  11. A photo a day for a year is quite an accomplishment. It must have been exhausting! I’m sorry to see you go. If you ever decide to resume, I’ll be happy to find you. Wishing you well, Sandy

  12. I have really enjoyed your eye for composition, and skill with a camera. I hope you are going to continue as a photographer, even if you don’t choose to blog daily – it’s more than I generally do, after all! But when you catch that perfect image, I hope you find a way to share with those of us who are appreciative of your skills. Keep well, do good work, have fun out there!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words!! I will carry on taking photos πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ many more adventures to be had I hope!! Please keep well as well πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you so much!! I really appreciate that. I enjoyed blogging but it was taking too much time up and I have become stupidly busy recently so trying to fit in time to do my blog was becoming more stressful than enjoyable so this felt like a good time to finish it. How are you doing? I hope all is well during these strange times!

  13. I’m sorry you’re quitting, I always enjoy seeing your fine work. I hope you are well and perhaps someday will post your work online again. Good luck to you!

  14. I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog, and will miss your photos, but understand your reasoning. All the best to you, as you move onto other projects.

  15. Did not ‘like’ this post because I’ll miss this blog! Best to you Dave and thanks for all the great photography you brought our way. Looking forward to seeing your next blog. πŸ˜‘

    1. Thank you!!! And I totally understand the not β€˜liking’ part πŸ˜‚ I have always really appreciated your lovely comments, insights, likes and support and thank you so much!!

      1. You are welcome! Can I kindly suggest you continue with your blog should you have the desire and time, of course! 😎

  16. Sorry to hear of your decision. You have some great shots from the UK. Every year I wonder if it will be my last as well & then WordPress surprises me & renews me automatically. Cheerio, is what I hear they say in your neck of the woods.

  17. I’m a little late to the game here and much like your other commenters, I’m bummed. I so enjoy your photos. You are very talented. You could post once a week or once a month… Others have probably suggested that. It’s been a pleasure. Thank you for letting us all into your photo world!

  18. It seems I’m the last to know. Been missing your wonderful images in my feed. Much as I’d rather you keep inspiring us here, I also wish you the best in your next endeavors. Hope our paths cross in blogosphere again.

  19. I am wishing you a great time, Dave. Even if the photos stop here I now your life continues with personal projects and ideas. Take care and kind regards from Peru, maybe it will be just a pause is what I tell myself.
