The Sun Has Set...

on another year, but also on Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo. Since its inception in June, 2008, I have, according to Blogger, posted 2,716 photos here! Along the way, I have met so many dear bloggers and readers, more than I can possibly count. The City Daily Photo community is a talented and caring group of photobloggers and thanks to this opportunity, I now have friends around the world, many whom I've met in person over the last 7 years. For all the perks, the daily responsibility of taking and posting a photo has started to drive my photography, and I feel I need a bit more freedom to explore new genres in order to grow as a photographer.

The good news is that this blog will just move to Birmingham Through My Lens ( the address will remain the same)! I won't post every single day, but I hope all of your who have followed BADP continue to come by and have a look at my latest images.

I thank you for your loyalty, comments, encouragement and most of all, your friendship.  Here's to a new and creative 2016 from Birmingham!

First of all, bravo for this wonderful blog. And as a CDP blogger of just less then three years, I am truly impressed that you have maintained your blog for so long. As far as your decision, I totally, completely, and absolutely understand. Bon voyage on your new adventure.

Congratulations, dear Virginia and thanks for all the wonderful images over the years. I did the same - my Monte Carlo Blog was changed to 'weekly' but I'm afraid even that has lapsed somewhat. ... 'through my lens' is sensible allowing you to post when you want.

Wishing you a very happy and creative and healthy New Year. love Jilly xxx

Oh how we understand you, chere Virginia. It is happening to all of us who started blogging around 2008. And it's OK.
Enjoy your newly freed up time in the new year! Lots of shalom to you.

Thank you for all the lovely photos you have given us! I will miss my daily fix of the Magic City, but I fully understand. You deserve a break. A once in a while fix will be very nice. :-) Take care, Virginia
