'farewell to Weekly Shot'

Tonights entry is about "the end" of things. I guess from my perspective (and age!) I've seen a lot of 'projects' start and stop. I too am guilty of trying things out, and giving opportunities a chance at succeeding. But with age comes wisdom, and most of those things that we want to have a go at we have already tried, or we are already doing and it 'just works'.

Don't panic I'm not quitting ID7, this definately works for me, but other areas of the net that I partake in, one favourite of which was Weekly Shot have just announced that it will end after this last project called "farewell". Shame really because it always had high quality shots on the site, and it was a good place for ideas and reference.

People forget about the hours of effort required to maintain these themed sites, and I would just like to say thanks to all those people who bother to comment, and post their own images on meme sites to allow us all to continue sharing our images.

On another note, similar in context but equally depressing, Pooles Historical Main Post Office (of which this is not a shot), has now just become an empty shell, likely to be a bar or club in the near future if R.Carr has his say. It has now become an outlet counter in the towns WHS. All good things come to an end I guess. Ooooo so gloomy tonight, its been raining for 2 days , and seems constantly dark here at the moment.

And to top it all a mates' Dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and gets his results today. I wish Mr Bull (one of the finest Ears / Nose and Throat Surgeons we have) the best over the next few months, and hope he can ride it out. csj

I like this one as well - cluttered and confusing - its funny they expect someone to process all that information.

Hope things turn around - downer post dude - you need some sunshine!

Interesting - is this PO up for closure??

I see that shooter (a regular poster on Chromasia) has also called it a day.

Nice shot and as others have said great colour, she looks like she's dressed just for the shot! I'm impressed you have a Post Office at all, pretty sure there are only two left in good old WGC!

Great shot, love the vibrant colours! The colour of the woman's clothing matches perfectly. ;)
