I have to say goodbye for a while

The demands of the professional and everyday life have increased. Times are not easy and the job is very stressful. Unfortunately, I do not have the energy and time to devote myself to this great community as I would like.

Photography has a special meaning for me, as well as the encounter with so many nice people who are enthusiastic about images. The exceedingly friendly attentions and inspiring opinions of you are a genuine enrichment to me. What a picture can be, what it can say and express, that it can sound a string at heart, can be experienced daily and constantly anew in this unique community.

Every picture is like a journey - a traveling with lines, shapes, chiaroscuro and colours. It shows what we think and feel while looking at this world. Warm thanks for the many beautiful journeys and the many deeply impressive encounters!

Of course I will come every now and then, make a short visit...
I wish you all the best!
You are in my thoughts.

Jerome
We will see you again. Take care of yourself!

Don't leave it too long. Your photos always inspire! Thank you for your continued comments and favs on my project:)
posted April 16th, 2018  
So long for now... but I do hope you will share your inspiring photos from time to time... May God bless you in all your endeavors and allow you to enjoy photographing the works of His hands as life allows. Love the light of the sail in the dark sea... like hope in a darkened world. FAV

I look forward to seeing many more of your beautiful photos. Every single one is a work of art. However, you have to think of yourself and prioritize your time. It's never good when things get too stressful. Take care.

Of course, you will be greatly missed Jerome, your care and attention to every detail, your skills and inspiration and great love of the art of photography have enriched many of us. I am sad that you have a stressful time with your professional life. I hope that you will weather the storm well and that we will see you back again one day . Take good care.

Sorry to see you go but hopefully only for a short while, I can sympathise with your predicament. Even as a retired person, my days are full and my endeavours to post an image are more difficult due to time constraints rather than the capturing of an image.
Take care my friend hope to see you soon.

My dear friends and followers... Thank you so much for these touching words!
I remember very well my first postings in this community. How extremely nice and friendly I was received and admitted since day one. I could not imagine that so many well-disposed and cordial people are gathering - and everyone enjoys photography! I'm still wondering about it. Almost unbelievable. This community is really unique.
It is wonderful to experience so many individual perspectives in photography and expressions in creating images. But I did not only learn a lot from photography, but also from personal encounters. These are very precious experiences for me.

My working conditions have become much more difficult lately, the tone rougher. I really hope that things will improve in the foreseeable future - so that I have more leisure time for taking pictures and that my thoughts can flow more freely.

I will never forget you.
My heart goes out to you.

Jerome

I certainly will not give up my love for nature and my beloved mountains... even if I do not have the opportunity to be there...
It helps me a lot to have such lovely thoughts from such lovely people in this community. Yes, you say it so beautiful: It nourishes the soul... And the hard becomes soft, the cold becomes warm, the dark becomes light...
I wish you all the best.

@stimuloog "Sea" you... It's so nice when pictures speak and speech is pictorial. I can not see the sea, but I can close my eyes and travel with the cotton-white clouds...

Thank you - Cindy, Vesna, Krista and Vikki - for your nice lines! It gives me a great pleasure.
There should be days again that make me freer and more easy-going. Days that give me time for the good and the beautiful things.
I do not forget my camera. And of course I think of you and this unique community.
Have it well and nice. I wish this very much.
