bavenius01 In a world where books are increasingly consumed on digital devices, what will happen to the temples we've built to share and protect history, knowledge and literature?

bavenius01 "Now you see me..."
I was invited by @lower.east.side_ to join @jcity_ny 's "I see you" challenge, ending tomorrow. This is my somewhat unconventional entry.
To enter:
-subject must be only halfway in the frame (you'll notice I took perhaps an extreme interpretation of that here)- check the tag for examples
-only New photos (not adding tags to already-posted shots)
-tag with #iSeeYou_challenge
-invite 2 people to the challenge
I'd like to invite @smbnyc and @paulgomango if they're inclined to give it a shot.

bavenius01 What comes next?

Folks, this has been a wonderful ride, but I'm going to be dialing back my time here quite a bit, in large part to give other parts of my life more attention.
My time here has fueled my enthusiasm for photography such that I have dozens of images I'd love to share, but lack the time to share them. The community I've built here is a double-edged sword. There are so many people whose feeds I'd love to spend more time with and who genuinely engage with me, that I lack the time to do so meaningfully. And for my part (smart or not), I make an effort to thank folks who take the time to do so with me by visiting and commenting.

In a strange way, the reciprocity of community is what I love about this, yet my community has grown so much that it would take hours daily to keep up with it if I posted more frequently. But I wouldn't want to do it any other way. Therein lies the conundrum. To be clear, I consider myself privileged to have such "challenges." I'm also humbled and appreciative of the many mods and hubs that have found my work worthy enough to share with their followers.

Now I'm hearing that instead of letting users determine whose work should rise to the top of their feeds, Instagram's algorithm will do that, much as Facebook has befuddled me with what and why things are curiously prioritized in my feed there (and where I consequently spend less time as well). I've been privileged to shoot with and virtually meet some amazing people who have been kind to share their knowledge, inspiration and encouragement, and hope I still have the opportunity to learn from and shoot with them.

I'm not going away; I just won't be checking in as often.

  •   mylifeofwanders Absolutely stunning. Love the vibe 1mon
  •   the_lens_warrior @bavenius01 I must say goodbye and wish you well dear. My workload is increasing and IG is becoming a pain with their 'repeat comments' pop-up blocks. I must move forward saving my IG time for those I interact with almost every day. Keep up the wonderful photography! It is always top notch. 2w
  •   bavenius01 I hear you and am in much the same situation. So sorry- will still look out for your terrific work! @the_lens_warrior 2w
  •   krismicheal_photography Awesome 5d
