Thanks so much for the kind words! But as I told one well-wisher, it's not my friends I've given up on. I'll be around (happily, I see many of you elsewhere anyway), so you bet I'll stay in touch. Look me up out there, too!! #11217752

Thanks, Carol and Tammy! Carol, I remember that SO well! Still wish that website hadn't lost its focus (pun intended). #11218275

JO ANN CLEVELAND January 07, 2015

Ohhh Monnie, please stay with us, you can see we all love your work! Hey! If you are quitting because of BP, don't do it, stay in touch with your friends! #11220256

Monnie Ryan January 07, 2015

Thanks to all of you for the kind comments! Believe me, leaving after being a member for at least 5 years isn't easy. I came here at the suggestion of a handful of photographer friends (most of whom long since have left), and I've met countless other friends since then. And, I estimate that I've invested a minimum of an hour a day here just about every day since I signed on, what with posting, commenting, participating in discussions, etc., so of course, my decision to go wasn't made lightly. On the other hand, as I said before, I see many of you at other photography websites - and please, please look me up. I have no intention of giving up on photography (even if the lousy weather is a deterrent now)! And Happy Hump Day! #11220341

MELODIE C. ROBERTS January 11, 2015

Wait a minute
No More Hump and T~K~W Days from you?
I will truly miss your wit and humor Monnie
You are a very clever and intelligent woman.
BP is losing a vital member of it's community.
I can't say I blame you though.
Best of luck to you and Jack
My you enjoy many lighthouses and flowers in the days to come.
Godspeed #11222965

Monnie Ryan January 11, 2015

Many thanks, Melodie - I'll miss you, too! But please look for me (in addition to other photography sites, you'll find me at most social media gathering places. Please look me up! The lighthouses and flowers, though, will have to wait till the snow and ice go away and the sun comes out again (bah humbug)!! #11223122

Douglas Pignet January 15, 2015

Don't you think it's time to come back? #11408914

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe December 06, 2015

I agree with Melodie 100%. Would love to see some of the older members back. #11408922

Monnie Ryan December 06, 2015

Hi, Melodie and Tammy! I do still log in every week or so (so far nobody's cut me off from doing that, so shhhhhhh...you didn't hear that from me! I miss you all too (well, except those of you I see all the time on Facebook and other photo sites - it's been great staying connected that way. Have a great holiday season - ours will be busy getting ready to move to a different house (same general neighborhood) in about a month. #11409151
