My fellow photographers and blog followers.  I have not posted to this blog in a while and much has changed since I began this photograph blogging adventure back in 2013.  Many changes have occurred, some great and others more challenging.  I have increased in my skills as a photographer, “Yeah”, and added several cameras to my equipment repertoire.  Even the iPhones and iPads I use have been given serious hardware and software upgrades. I posted some amazing photos, entered some photography challenges and even attended a WordPress Photography 101 course.

On the darker, less happy side of things, my actual site was down awhile.  It seems when I began this journey of photog exploration I had established my blog hosting site with my retired military email (check out my About page) which later was recouped by the government (a benefit loss to all retired military members) meaning all past emails stored, even the blog hosting site emails were lost to.  Well the hosting company was emailing me about change in company client policy using the defunct email. Without repeated replies the hosting site closed my account and then deleted my WordPress backups.  I later found out the personnel account represenative each website gets, my personal representative had been long since been changed and no one attempted to contact me.   

After many frustrating calls and having the hosting site allowing me to provide an older Dropbox/Wordpress backup, I got my blog back.  Well not really.  Wordpress treated the backup like a new blog account and so I lost all my tags, all my categories, many links and pictures.  Now I am repairing, rebuilding and updating all aspects of my blog (New Blog) one post at a time, one page at time, one picture at a time. Repair and Rescue.  Please excuse the chaotic mess as I replace and relink pages and pictures to posts many of you have liked and commented on.  Take time to explore my blog world and share with folks you believe may be uplifted by what I present here.

Much love to you all.
