The Time has Come...

... to reveal my new blog:
As this old (geosynchronicity) blog is now full, I decided to start the new one rather than downsizing the huge number of photos on the old one. I'll be more careful with photo sizes, &c on the new blog, and we'll see how long it take to fill IT up. By then, I think, blogs will have been superseded by another form of internet communication altogether... if not the internet itself superseded.
Anyway, those of you who have been regulars here, including those who are its followers, please migrate to the new blog and follow it there. I'll make it as worth your while as I can.
If you're new to this blog... before you jump away from it, there are thousands of photos here, some, IMHO, worth looking at - that's why they're there. So please have a look, then go on to for the rest of the story.

Returning from the caves, our bus passed a group of Georgian soldiers training - I photographed them through the window

This Blog...

... is getting FULL after more than 3 years of regular posting. At the start, my photos were both too large and too often - up to 10 per day - to sustain the 2GB memory limit for more than this amount of time. Even switching to a digital camera, and making the jpegs smaller, while it made some difference, was too little too late.
SO I'm starting a new blog, conveniently at the outset of Lali's & my time in Mestia, Svaneti! We're here as I begin a school year of English teaching in the town's School Number 1. More on this new job, and on life in Mestia, soon. Stay tuned right here for details of the new blog's opening, which will be in a few days...

Slow shutter speed and moving the camera in the direction of motion - that's what this is all about. Digital makes it so easy to see results instantly & make further adjustments
