new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

    Brilliant - pinching it for the Pond right now (and making a donation to the effort)

  2. Helen - could you delete the first comment please? Disqus put up my real name instead of my nom-de-plume and I'd rather not have the two linked...thanks

  3. Thanks! I thought it was a great visual reminder of the relative cost of stuff and plan to pinch it for the Pond :)
