If you do happen to be following my weekly monochrome post, you may have noticed that I am two week's behind and should have posted week's 13 and 14 by now.
I did have a big plan to focus on and learn more about monochrome photography. As the quote in my last post stated, it's more of an unfolding adventure. I believed that by putting a stake in the ground with my blog, I would not fail. In reality, my best-laid plans for this project have taken a bit of a turn. First, it has been more challenging and time-consuming than I originally thought it would be.
More importantly (and in the spirit of transparency), I came to realize that there is not as much interest in this topic as I thought there would be. I have debated for the past few weeks whether to continue and although I am disappointed, it is what it is. I'm confident I will move on in my own way, exploring and learning this genre of photography with more flexibility and less angst.
Although I won't be posting a weekly blog as I had planned, I will forever be interested in monochrome photography. I plan to continue to study and learn what I can in the months/years to come. And of course, I will share what I learn along the way in short snippets. When I have something good in black and white I will definitely share it. I love to learn and share with this community. And, I thank you all who have commented and contributed to this short photoblog journey of mine.

I love that we all have the ability to try new things, start over and move on. We can move on when things don't seem to be right for the time, place or situation.
You can expect to see a lot of garden images in the months to come. Years ago I started my photography journey with a garden blog, called 'Heidi's Garden Blog'. I realized how much I enjoyed this blog at the time. Since this is where I'll be spending most of my time, you will be seeing, things like asparagus harvest, rhubarb pie and many, many dahlias. I seem to do my best work and my best thinking when I'm gardening. It really is my happy place.
I hope you enjoy my future images as much as I do spending time where they live and breath.
