I took this picture in Chicago in 2009, intending for it to be the last picture I posted from that trip. Somehow that didn't happen, and it's been sitting in my "not posted" file all that time. I guess that's fitting. It's a picture from "back in the day," when Renderosity had a thriving photography community. This is upload #3125 in my gallery, and for at least the foreseeable future, it will be the last upload I make here on Renderosity. This site was good to me for many years, and I made a lot of friends here. Heck, this is where I met my husband! That sort of history is nothing to be sneezed at. But all good things come to an end, and I just don't care about this place any more. The past three years have been a steady decline, and it's time to say goodbye. There have been so many people over the years who have left, slamming the door behind them never to return, only to reappear at a later date, so I'm not going to say this is forever. But right now, I can't imagine what would get me to come back. I have a gallery at Flickr as Auntie TK, if you want to see what I'm up to.

I know the feeling, I don't post here now but I do have an occasional look to see what my old friends are up to. Good luck to you and Bill Tara. Might see you on Flikr but I don't post a lot there either. My main site is Ipernity. Lots of love and thank you for your kind comments in the past.

Sorry to see you go, Tara, but you must do what you feel is right for you. Your photos have been an inspiration and a light in the dark. This one is a perfect example of your wonderful work.

Jo and I look forward to seeing you in a couple months.

Great capture my friend I wish you and your husband all the best take care and watch how you go stay safe

Odd that on the day I return I find you are leaving. Seems life just gets in the way sometimes. After my injury last Year I’ve been struggling to relearn how to hold my camera. Adapting to old age is not for the weak! I wish you and Bill all the best. And I will take a look at your other page as I’ve always enjoyed your work. And I’ve certainly enjoyed your support as I ventured into the photography world. Thank you for that. All the best to you.

I'm sorry to see you leave here. but I understand the situation as I'm seeing it as well. You and Bill take care and hopefully we will be blessed with your wonderful detailed images once again.

Yep, time marches on and sometimes we have to leave things behind. I look here once in a while, but it's just not the same. I'm glad I saw this post and even gladder that we can still stay in touch other ways!!

I am enjoying your pictures on Flickr !

So sorry to see you go, Auntie. A great shot to end upon. I understand what you mean about this site. Hugs for all day, DiDi xx

This is sad to see and a terrible loss. You have been such an inspiration to so many. I would never have written so many stories without your selfless support, you helped me make a dream come true. I truly wish the best future and many more adventures for you. Good luck where ever you go. I think a book should never have the words 'The end' written on the final page. I think the story should always have the promise that it may continue. So, I won't say goodbye, I'll just say...

When my cat died my mother put everything into perspective when she simply said, "Everything dies." Still, the last eighteen months have been one loss after another. Renderosity has been like a college shared apartment. One by one people have left. At least we know where you have moved and have the opportunity to keep in touch. You are correct, this is a perfect image for this occasion. Maybe, if I get my crap together, I'll be on the road this Spring and we can visit. Until then I'll see you on flickr.

This is a beautiful post Tara, but a sad message. By and large I agree with you though. I am glad that we keep in touch anyway.

So sad, I see you are leaving, Tara who was one of my bench marks in photography! You need a break, perhaps new friends and you need to feel free, so I say thank you for all wonderful posts and comments, take care of you and Bill and my best wishes for your future Tara!
