Just like the name of my last photo time has come to close the curtains.

I believe theres no surprise in my decision long goes the time where TE was on my top priorities God knows how I loved the place the people the photos.

The true is I dont reckon myself in Todays TE anymore my fault probably To be honest I cant even tell you why the place grew too much; some of my all time favorites left and even those who remain are not half as active as they were in a recent past; the point discussion become too annoying; the overall quality of the photos is a lot weaker; the absence of a strong leadership or simply because we are just moving in opposite directions Im focusing more and more in photography while TE is focusing more in Learning about the world

Dont get me wrong Im not bashing the place that though me almost everything I know about photography. Theres still great members great photos and most important great persons. But I dont feel comfortable anymore theres no passion so Ive made my mind (and it was a though call believe me).

Im not expecting your reaction words of praise nor comeback requests Im writing this as a humble sign of respect for all of those who spent their time teaching me advising me helping me to be a better photographer every single day.
TE played a major role in my life it changed my life I dont know if its a definite goodbye from TE but for now its time to move on

But every end means a new beginning the world is a small place Im sure we will meet again sooner or latter.

Best wishes for all of you,
Youre truly special,
M嫫io Lopes (Lisbon / Portugal)

I will leave online the series that changed me as a person and as a photographer this is my humble contribution for the Learning about the world through photography theme of TE.
