Hi everyone, welcome back to The Hollow today. In light of recent events here, I have some news to share today that may disappoint some, and for that we are very sorry. This will likely be the final blog post we make here for quite some time. Please let me explain.
Photography always has been and always will be something I enjoy doing. It’s a special connection I have with my father who was an avid, although never really recognized, photographer himself. When he passed away a while ago, I managed to get his camera and was compelled to create what it is you see here: Toad Hollow Photography.
The premise was to turn a hobby into a new career. But life changes, sometimes on a dime. I find myself currently working a crazy Mon-Fri day job with a rather nasty commute, and now I have also been presented with an opportunity that could set things up rather nicely for my family and I for the foreseeable future. The challenge for me personally is time. Or the distinct lack thereof, to be honest. I must pursue this opportunity, it’s a wonderful chance we have here, presented by a friend of mine who means so much to my family and I. It’s just something I have to do.
The old saying “when God closes a window, he opens a door” truly applies here. I won’t be able to spend much time anymore on our social networking sites and am a tad bit heartbroken about this. I must also park this blog. In some ways we can look at it as a book that has ended. The stories in here, and the pictures, were all crafted with the utmost of love and I hope that people will continue to come and see this body of work. I will continue to take pictures, and every once in awhile will post them on our gallery. I will also continue to follow photography in general, and will be contributing our weekly post of great links to Light Stalking every week as before… you can take the Toad out of photography, but you can’t take photography out of the Toad.
It’s hard to say what life will bring us in the future. If this new project goes well, and I have no doubt it will, I hope to be back in the future… with time and energy, ready to take on this challenge that has really meant so much to us in bringing to you.
We love you all, each and every one. We’ve made some great connections and truly hope those won’t be lost. Please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time if you wish to connect and talk.
And on that note, I must go my friends… best wishes to you all, you’re in our thoughts and prayers.
