    i've always been horrible with names, dates, durations, places, and times. i enjoy (because it's what i have) a memory of the visual, emotional, and mental.

    i have no clue how long i've been posting here. i could, with a few clicks or so, find out, but then again i have not a single care about time.....

    the things that i remember:

    the beautiful people. those that are genuine, sincere, and kind.
    the beautiful people. those that are decisive, critical, and steadfast.

    the bonds that have kept my faith in the art and humanity.
    the disagreements that have kept my faith in the art and humanity.

    i've seen subjects. i've seen formats. i've seen alternative methods. i've seen people shooting.

    i've had a great many laughs. i've enjoyed you folks; immensely.

    there comes a time when one (i) must differentiate between the subject at hand and social discourse. i see life from within, hence; my methodology of remembrance. my work is an expression not only of me, but of the soul of my subjects. i live my life socially; i simply love people. i live my art from behind a camera. i blend the two visions to create.


    <enter>
    toil. restlessness. decision.

    i am convinced that you will understand one's need to focus. i need to focus. it is here, now, that i take leave of you folks.

    if you love the art; keep shooting and learning.
    if you love the craft; keep shooting.
    if you love the comradery; keep talking.

    with much love for all,

    Will

    You will be sorely missed, Will. I can't thank you enough for all you've given and taught me.

    Stay sxc.

    Love,

    Just loggeed in after a bit of a hiatus becuase of real life. This makes me sad. Really sad. I learned so much from you Will. And I trully beleive that your pictures and instruction have mentored me.

    Go if you must. Love of any sort is truest when it releases.

    But you will be missed.

    By me at least.

    Will, you will indeed be sorely missed here. Your insights have taught me much, and I'm sure every member who has spent more than a few minutes reading can honestly say the same.

    We'll leave the light on for you.

    I think you're a wonderful and talented photographer. Of course we understand the need to focus, babe. So, go focus.

    And c'mon back around when that need feels more sated. We'll be here!

    <sniff> I'll miss you....

    Sorry to see you go and you will definitely be missed!
    Hopefully all will work out for you and maybe we'll have the pleasure of your company again sometime in the future.
    Good luck!

    I haven't been around here for very long. But regardless of that, It still is sad to see one of the members here so full of useful information and insight have to leave. You will be missed greatly...
