At the end of my 365, I will be leaving flickr after many years for ipernity.
It's just not worth the headache anymore. I thought that maybe I'd adjust to the layout, the functionality issues, the frequent awful changes, the complete about face on what flickr is and should be, the wonky stats, etc. etc.; but I haven't.

I'll be so sad to go, I am SO grateful for the incredible contacts I've had all this time, you have taught me so much, been so kind, so critical, so helpful, you have shown me the world - you have shown me your world - and what an incredible gift that is.
I may never again have the photo community I've so enjoyed here, but I'm so, so pleased that I have had it. How fortunate I am.

Thank you all. Every one of you. I am a much better photographer, and probably a better human for having had this place and you artists in my life.

Feel free to find me on facebook (just let me know who you are) or on ipernity.

And do take care of yourselves.

I haven't yet decided what I'm going to do with my flickr photostream. We'll see.

    "Carrie is one of the most talented and creative individuals I know. And I'm not just saying that because I gave birth to her. She started thinking the minute she was born and has never quit. An amazing person is Carrie!"
