Beginning of the End?

Is this the beginning of the end? Maybe that's a little dramatic, but there's just about to me some major changes in my life, so I'm not entirely sure how this blog is going to feature in all of it.

I'm just about to pack up my computer and head over to a new flat in Edinburgh. I'm really looking forward to it actually - Edinburgh is a fantastic place. I won't have an internet connection for a few days (I think), but I'll try and get back online asap.

But Monday is going to be the day that I never thought would come. The day when I have to enter the real world and work! Unbelievable, I know. And that's where I fear the site may suffer, purely from a lack of time to keep it updated. But I'll try my very best to keep it going. The photography certainly won't stop anyway.

I thought I'd post this shot because it was probably the first picture I took that got me really excited about photography. Taken about a year and a half ago of my lovely girlfriend Jennifer.

So boys and girls. Thanks for all of your comments and encouragement over the last 8 months or so. And thank you Jem for inviting me to be your first Guest Blogger over at shutterjunkie. It's been a lot of fun maintaining this site. Let's hope I can keep it up!

Cheers,

John

I hope you do find time to keep the blog updated every now and again - i'll miss your photos if you don't! :(

As for moving to Edinburgh - you lucky thing! I love it there, even though I tend to drive straight past it when I go to Scotland - I have been there 3/4 times in the past. I take it your work is going to be of the law variety? Good luck with that - and settling down in your new appartment :)

Having said that, I think it's about time I visited Edinburgh again - maybe when I have some spare cash to do some shopping ;)

Welcome to the real world John!
I hope you still find the time to post a few images as I've only just found your site thanks to Jem's guest blog. In the meantime hope the move to Edinburgh goes well and you've got somewhere to park your car ;)

Congrat's on the move John, I'd love to live in Edinburgh (I'd prefer somewhere in Iceland but I'd be willing to settle for Scotland :P)

By this point I'm hoping everything's been / is being moved safely and that you love it at your new place. Don't worry about keeping the Exposure daily, as long as you don't compramise on quality to keep it regular we'll be happy even if we have to wait for a bit :)

Good luck in the working world, fortunately I still have several years before I resort to that *grins* at least you can put all those years of studying into practice (and helping me with my studying if I need it perhaps *nudge*)
If you don't manage to keep up the site I just thought I'd let you know that I've loved the overall outstanding quality of your work (I don't think I've ever seen a picture I could criticise :O) and you've been an inspiration for me in my (very short atm >_>) photography experiance, thank you.

John,

You'll find the time, guaranteed... remember you work to live, not live to work!

Best of luck with the new life etc. I hope you find the time to keep this rolling, I'm sure even my shots have improved a little from getting my daily exposure.

I'm sure you'll find the world of work more liberating than it at first seems. Failing that, it'll give you the impetus to make the free time you do have count.

Try not to take too many shots of the castle.

Good luck with the new life John, I hope you can keep this going. I know how tough it is though - I've had just over 6 months of daily photos mixed in with full time work and other life things and it can be a real challenge sometimes. I think it is worth it and judging by your progress, there's still plenty of untapped talent for you to explore :-)

Hey guys. Thank you so much for all of your comments. Each one is very much appreciated. Wish I had more time to respond, but I'm only on for a quick update and to let you all know I'm still alive! :)

Hopefully things will be back to normal ASAP!
