Dear friends,

After 15+ years of photo-blogging and over 1500 postings, the time has come to hang it up and retire

It is a bittersweet thing to say goodbye to something you put so much effort into for so long, a web site which in its various incarnations has been around since the original "Austin Powers" hit the big screen in the late 90's. So thank you to buntag, friskypics, terryh, Arjan, elaine, rian, ginnie, rolf, krista and all the rest who over the years have given up their precious time to visit and comment on my collection of poorly composed and out of focus photos.

This does not mean I have given up on photography, just this chapter. I do have a new website,, where I am embarking on a new project.

Good luck, peace to you all ... and thanks for sharing.

Dennis "CrashRyan" Cernosia
