Time for a Break

Yes, sorry that my announcement wasn't more cheerful (and to avoid making you come back for bad news, I won't announce an announcement again) but I have decided to take a break from blogging for a month. The day I will post again will be Sunday October 7th. I have been toying with the idea of taking a break for a little while now, simply because with my wedding coming up at the end of the month (in Poland), I cannot commit my entire energy to this blog. I have been juggling this blog up with other commitments for a couple of months now and have finally decided to take a break until after the wedding.

It wasn't easy to make the decision to take a little break, but the fact that I have been concentrating on the wedding (and everything that goes with it), means I have not been out that much taking photographs. I have never wanted to post anything on this blog I was not happy with and feel I will be breaking that ideal if I keep going over the next month. I've been committed to posting 3 times a week during this year and will continue to do that, upon my return.

The good news is though, when I do return to this blog in October, I will be more committed and determined than ever to produce fantastic photography. My love for photography has not relented even a little, in fact it is quite the opposite. Photography is dominating nearly all my thoughts (apart from the wedding of course...ssshhh!) these days and I want to progress to a much higher level with it. I have recently undertook a course with The Photography Institute and would love to post my 'assignments' to this blog in the near future. I know it's not fair to expect everyone to just come back to a blog they follow after the blogger takes a break for a month, but I will work hard to make up for my absence with great pictures from Poland and other places I happen to be over the next month.

By the way, this is not an absence from the photographic world in general. I will still be on twitter as usual, and perhaps posting the occasional picture on Flickr (ones I probably already have here).

Though the end of the year is still 4 months away yet, I have decided to post below, what I think are my best photos of the year (earliest first). This is based on viewer response (on here or other websites) by the way, not my own personal opinion. Hope you enjoy them and see you in October!


  1. Enjoy your break Pete and most of all enjoy your wedding day!
    Look forward to seeing some images when you return.

    1. Thanks for that Marc, I really appreciate it. It's a slightly nice thought tonight not having to get a blog up for tomorrow, but will not and don't want to get used to that feeling. I'm sure I'll be back before most people notice!
