Swallow-tailed Kite

What's happening with me?


Well, I've given up photography. I lost the passion. Other than the Texas trip which was largely paid for, I haven't taken photos in a year. Wildlife photography changed so much in the last five years. It's gone from sitting in a hide praying for a glimpse of a rare bird to commercial set-ups which guarantee a result. And I went along with this, enjoying my results. But eventually I came to see that the results were no longer about me, they were about the location, the leader, etc. and I started to lose interest.


The best thing about my time taking photos has been the Flickr buddies and others I have met along the way. You guys are great and I wish you every success. I will post remaining photos as many are used in publications from groups I support but the gear now stays in its cupboard. Who knows I may have a change of heart but probably not.
