Applying The Brakes

It's been a hard decision for me to make but I've decided to stop posting daily.

A big thank-you to everyone who has visited here over the years and to all your words of encouragement. Without them I would have stopped all this blogging lark ages ago.

The blog will remain active, though, and I'll post every now and then.... so feel free to swing by from time to time.

Well that's a blow. But far be it for me to criticise...

Look forward to seeing your photos as and when, Cara. I no longer have a connection with Brisbane, so I was relying on your blog to keep the memories fresh:)

Hi Cara
You are a mother, and you work. Each of those is an occupation on its own, yet women like yourself continue to successfully manage both.

Add a daily blog that requires a photograph for each post? You have been able to do that for the past few years, and I take my hat off to you.

Whilst I will miss the daily pic and the often humorous words that accompany it, I will certainly look forward to seeing them when they do pop up.

Congratulations on your work so far and best wishes for the future.

Cheers Alan. Also cheers for the "occasional" inspiration. It's a relief to have the pressure off but comforting to know it's not all over.

Thanks Trevor! As far as managing my time goes, the work and the mothering have both been hijacked by the blog from time to time. as a matter of fact, I'm at work right now. Whoops did I just say that? Yes: efficient times ahead!

I have so enjoyed your photos Cara, and hope that the occasional posts won't be too long in coming.

I understand you have a busy life and wish you all the best.

"occasional"... One of the most liberating words ever invented:-)

Awesome innings Cara. Loved the pics. If it is a consolation, I went daily years ago and only popped in now and then to see the work in all its glory. If the audience is only popping in 'occasionally' then surely the artist is entitled to the same lenience.

See you soon.

I've really enjoyed your photographs. They've helped to keep me in touch with what is happening in Brisbane where my son and daughter-in-law live. They've also been a reminder that. somewhere, people are enjoying more sunshine than we are in Leeds!

Of course I will miss my 7am ish Cara "date"- but an occasional post is sorta more "natural" - that is, when you come across a great photo opportunity, and it turns out well, that's the time to share the thrill!
Take care!

Hi Cara I am not a blogger but have thoroughly enjoyed your daily page since stumbling on it some months ago.

I have a love photography which you also obviously do and live in Brisbane in between my travels. Your blog has inspired me to investigate starting my own.

Thanks so much for the pleasure and get ready to enjoy your other lives. Maureen

Thanks folks!

Joanna I have always been a bit rubbish or late at replying in the comments (like now) but thanks for all your visits and comments.

Maureen I really hope you get your blog off the ground. My advice would be to not think too much about preparations and just do it. It's great fun!

Great that you will be keeping on with an occasional post Cara. Enjoy the change and I certainly will be swinging by from time to time. Continue to love and enjoy your photography.

Sorry to see you taking a can be very time consuming trying to fit in the's not just posting, is it? It's reading all the others as well!. Will look forward to catching up when you do post.

Hi Cara, I admit to rarely commenting but always visiting and enjoying your posts of our city. Thank you for taking on such a big commitment for so long, I want you to know how much I enjoy your posts and I wil continue to look forward to them even if they are only occasional from now on. cheers Katherine

Wonderful post Cara. I realy understand. Your photos and words are great and I like to visit. I'm a bit short in blogging time in the moment and yes, it's o.k. to not post daily. Your blog is one of my favorite still.

Oh and the swing shot is fabulos!
