Final Post For Now! - Faces on Friday - Buddhist Monk - Waiting For Sunset - Bagan - Myanmar





I love photography and have enjoyed posting on this blog for over three years now.  However having recently discovered  Instagram I find I am posting more and more of my every day shots there instead of here! In a way this is sad but it is a fact that blogging and media sharing is a forever changing experience. Time seems to be forever shrinking with so many interests to enjoy. It seems to me that the posts here are more frequently than not ones I could easily have published on Travel Tales and in fact photos often appear on both blogs.
Also I have always enjoyed taking part in Photography memes and they were one of the initial reasons I set up a separate photography blog. This side of the blog has been neglected recently and when I do post I am certainly not visiting  the number of participants that I feel I should be doing. I will still be visiting my blogging friends but via Travel Tales and will continue to follow back those of you that follow me.

Therefore I feel considering all this it is time to make a change! The plan is to continue with my themed posts World at Work and Faces on Friday but instead of publishing them here they will appear on Travel Tales. In fact I will repost the most recent ones there to introduce the idea to readers  that do not follow this photography blog.

I am sincerely hoping that my followers here will keep in touch with me via Travel Tales and maybe Instagram as well. It is thanks to your encouragement, appreciation and support in recent years that I continue to blog.

Keeping my options and therefore this blog open as I may well be back posting photos here again soon!
