Hello all! :iconeeeeeplz:

It's been a while, but here I am again. I'm not giving up on dA, and especially not on the wonderful people, but there's a whole wonderful world outside it, and it's been taking some of my attention.

New guidebook
This week I got notice from my publisher that the next edition of my Malta guidebook (sorry, Dutch only) is at the printer's. It's the first edition since I went digital and got more serious into photography, so I'm quite excited about it. We were in Malta last year for a short period and we had a great time there, as always. In case you don't know Malta, it's great for all kinds of photography - Street, flowers, landscape, architecture, you name it.

David Sant exhibition
For quite a long time I've followed :icondavidsant: davidsant and I love his work. He travels a lot, but whether he is shooting at home or away, I'm in awe of his technique and his eye. I was delighted to hear that he's partaking an exhibition now, called "Walks of Life". It's in the headquarters of the Maltese Tourist Organisation in Valletta, the beautiful 16th C. Auberge d'Italie. If you happen to be on Malta, the exhibition will be there until July 20. If you can't make it, visit his gallery, it's a feast for the eyes!

Completely understand how you feel about dA; way too much going on in the outside world. I haven't been around much lately either.
Congratulations on your book! Malta is one of those places I've always wanted to visit. So much amazing history and art in one small location.

Well, if you'll ever find a cheap flight or if you can combine it with something else - I can only recommend it. It isn't an expensive place to be.
Talking of things outside dA - I haven't forgotten about the photo essay. :( It's just that it's a tough subject and I've been busy earning the daily bread in between. I'll come up with something, even if it's just because the subject is close to my heart.

No longer associated with 360 Main Street; things sort of fell apart there and I left. So, no worries!
If I don't get to Malta, I definitely want to find an excuse to get back to anywhere in Europe. Last time was northern Italy back in 2006. As an educator,perhaps I can find something related to education and get paid... I need to do some digging. :beer: Be well, my friend!

I still like the idea for my essay, so I'm working to do something with it in any form or shape. Magazines can be a lot of hassle... I speak from experience!

On a lot of places in Europe people are eager to learn English, especially in the Eastern part. But the standard of living 'varies', and you'll need some luck to some place where there's suitable pay. Keep me posted. :)

Many many congrats both to you and David Sant! :clap:
Unfortunately I don't speak Dutch and I won't be able to go to Malta...so, I can't really appreciate your work, but I'm sure it deserves a great attention and success! :D

Thanks very much, dear friend! :hug:

I hope you'll be able to visit Malta at some time, it's only a short boat trip off Sicily and it's a place after my heart. :hug::heart:

I hope too! The problem is that after my depression and the separation from my husband, holidays and trips are just dreams...maybe one day...who knows! :(
I wish you all the best, Eric! :heart: :hug:
