Personal Quote: "There is so much beautiful light in the world." (Wilhelm Raabe)
Welcome to this lightthinker-journal

  :greetings:   :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:  :greetings:     

Things can have a dynamic of their own. When I started my new RedBubble-gallery a week ago, I had no intention to let it really interfere with my two deviantArt galleries here. Even when I wrote my journal on jchanders three days ago, I was convinced that I would continue both though at less intensity.  

New worlds change old words, however. And RedBubble has become a new world to me.

Buy my art

Under these circumstances I cannot avoid some serious questioning. It does not concern the jchanders-gallery, but it does concern this one: How long shall I go on?

My by now 545 lightthoughts are a treasure on their own, and will always be so. I am wondering, however, since some time whether continueing them does not mean adding the same to the same again. Same pictures, same thoughts …

Buy my artrather to my surprise, has quickly sucked me in. It is this special subject and my intense wish to share the beauty of the Netherlands with people all over the world, which give a somewhat new direction.  

So what shall I do? End lightthinker here and now? Or take a break, giving it all some time? At this very moment I feel for the latter…  

So no new lightthoughts for the time being, no other activities from this gallery. A hard decision, but sometimes hard cuts have to be made. How definite is all will be? We shall see.

I shall transfer the watch of all good friends whom I watch on this gallery, to my jchanders one.

And I request all of you who want to continue looking at my photographic work, to do so at the jchanders-gallery here AND at the RedBubble one. And if you think you are good enough: do join RedBouble. RedBubble is free, RedBubble is me! It can be you too.

A lot of my lifeblood has gone into this lightthinker´s gallery. Of my emotions, my efforts, my joys …I have got ever so much back from you! So it is gratefulness that is the motto of this day, being ever so thankful to all of you who have been such good friends. I love you all for it. But there is also sadness ...

I wish you all the very best, and I do hope to see you at my other two places.  

And: nothing is definite yet ...

your gallery is absolutely breathtaking.

you are extremely talented.

i was looking for a background for my myspace and your photos are great but i couldn't find any that were big enough.

I am glad to see you use light to your advantage. Many photographers would stray from such a thought. Thanks for that! Einstein would be proud of your light likeness. :)

Many, though very late thanks. I only look very seldom at the messages of this gallery now, as it is inactive since January.
