Rolando, jus wondering why you never discuss anything here anymore. Now your even locking your new threads so we can't comment here. Should we all move over to the new site and abandon this one?

If you are referring to the new Garage Glamour site I believe it is still in the testing and development phase. I have seen nothing to indicate the new site is fully up and running. For now hang out here and help make this a great site.

I'm posting links to a hybrid photoblog/community, not a glamour site. There is a difference. This is a glamour site, we focus on glamour, Lens Diaries is not a glamour site, it focuses on everything photography. There is no nudity there, and I want to keep all discussions of topic there, not here. I post the links here to inform people about the latest there that are unfamiliar with the site--it's called networking. LD is not a replacement for GG by any means.

On the revamping of GG, we're waiting on a software upgrade due out any day, as the old software had some security holes. Believe me, I'm anxious to get GG 's new look up, but it uses a different, more difficult, more robust software than I'm using on LensDiaries.com and I'm no programmer, though I built LensDiaries.com myself, it was free software and easy for me compared to the purchased software for GG.

I hope that helps, thanks, rg sends!

No Rolando, that's not what mfharper is on about. I've noticed a decided decrease in your interaction on threads and lately most posting from you have been for the other blog/site. It feels like you've turned your attention elsewhere and so he is wondering if we should do the same and move over following you. It's not that we can't carry on conversations without you but it does make one wonder if you've gone for a change and effectively said, "I'm bored here".

Well, at least that's how I read what was originally posted.

To answer your reply in this thread, I come here every day, many times per day. I too lead a busy life, and do my best to interact when I can, in fact, the previous jimmyd posts about his blogs and running out of ideas I posted on. Sometimes I post on the introductions too. I'll admit, I read GG more than I interact, part of that is my fingers only type so much per day and you guys do a great job here. When the new format comes to play, which is sooner than later, you'll see more of me here.

I'm lost though on why you would drop GG for LD? Both are different sites, different genres of photography. GG is glamour photography and LD is various other genres. Perhaps I should ask, do you only participate on this photography forums or others? LD doesn't even have forums there, only my blog posts, which are not glamour specific, and commenting on a blog post is different than a forum. I will say, there are groups on LD and soon forums for those groups, but again, that's a different site totally all together and not glamour oriented. My hopes are that you partake on both sites, not just one. Obviously my sports photography article on LD has nothing to do with the glamour genre.

Now have I been posting more about LensDiaries.com, of course, it's my personal photoblog that I want to get photographers involved in, not just glamour photographers, no different than jimmyd posts about his blog. I'll admit, my focus has shifted more to an editorial style photography but I've been stating that for some time--editorial glamour/fashion, or like I like to call it, Flamour. As the economy has stiffened and hurt photographers, I'm just adapting to survive like everyone else--glamour is still a passion but glamour doesn't pay all the bills, never has, and probably won't for sometime.

For the record, I do post here, though not as much as I used too with my busy schedule, but here's an example, http://www.garageglamour.com/forums/...y-freytag.html (Arny Freytag)

I hope that helps, all the best, rg sends!

Hi Rolando,
I do frequent other forums, but I have to admit that I've never really gotten into the blog thing. I guess I just like a little more give and take. Plus I've never really figured out the blog comment thing. I do realize that people are a lot busier then they were 5 or 6 years ago. I think a lot of us really miss the interaction that took place on GG back then. It really is not fair to single you out, there are a lot of great photographers that used to frequent the site that we hardly ever see here anymore. However since you are the founder of the site, when your absent you are particularly missed. I do look forward to the launch of the upgraded site. I for one do understand the need to work on the projects that feed the family. I wish you continued success on what ever project you happen to be working on. Wouldn't it be nice if we could clone ourselves in order to do everything we want?

Thanks for your explanation. I will be here more frequent once the change takes place. Believe me when I say it, it's been long overdue and I'm can't wait until the update of the software we're playing with is finalized. I'm pushing Igor to hurry up and install it, soon I hope, and when it's up and running, it'll be easier for me to visit more from the road--though I will be reducing my workshops by 2/3 and doing more on the web, as it's the travels that kill me most and I'm going back to what I did best, GG and the Internet. Thanks, and don't worry about commenting on Lens Diaries™, just enjoy the articles, though soon it'll have it's own forums and photo albums, the albums will be similar to facebook with privacy and how they work. Join now, it's free! Thanks, rg.
