Appreciating wonderful photos,



This is Just Temporary… Goodbye!

After my blogging hiatus of more than a month, it is with regret that I have to announce that I’m letting go of my own domain.  I’m using again my old domain: as I’m now diverting my resources to other matters that require urgent attention.

Definitely, I’m not saying goodbye to blogging.  I’m just temporarily saying goodbye to my own domain.


Thanks for your continuous support,
