I’m leaving Stuckinplastic

 

Recent changes at Stuck in Plastic have made it clear to me that I have choose to go my own way. I have taken time off to think about this crossroads and I have come to a decision.

My decision is that I will leave Stuckinplastic, and the reasons is that I don’t want to lose myself, and I fear that I will do that if I follow the road that Stuck in plastic is going down. My time blogging here on Stuck in plastic has been short and sweet. I’ve learned so much through conversations and interaction with you all in this amazing community. Thank you for that. Thank you for all the great meetings, thoughts and all your support.

I’ll metaphorically be around the corner. You can find me on Instagram (occasionally), Facebook, Flickr or on my own webpage.

Kristina

During the spring I’ll be a guest-writer on Stuck in Plastic continuing with the photo-challenges. I’ll start off as a guest-writer by kicking off the next challenge later this week.

Thank you Kristina for all you’ve done for the blog and this community for the past six months. You’re energy, your thoughtfulness and your amazing photographs will be missed. Of course i’m more than grateful that you’ll continue to face these photo challenges with me, at least for the short term. :)

You’re an amazing woman, a talented photographer and I’m lucky to count you as my friend.

That’s a sad news.
You are a talented photographer and your works are awesome; I hope that you will share other amazing photos on Instagram.

See you there!
We missed you. :(

Well, I would have to start by admitting I don’t know you terribly well, but I see the objectivity that you seek out in your writing here (this was especially apparent in your recent ‘Why I do this’ post ) and I see the subjectivity of your photographs and I can only wonder as to how those meet within you. It’s not surprising you’ve reached this decision, but it is still with sadness to see you go. I feel fortunate to have met you here as I know how to keep track of your work now. As I think about… Read more »

AliceinCleveland I know you wrote this to Kristina but I can’t help but jump in. I came from the fine arts world, not the social media free-for-all that is Instagram. When you’re an artist you have to be able to express yourself as an artist, to be able to talk about your work, to know who your influences are and to know what you’re trying to say. This blog has always been about helping the core members (and anyone else) pursue a path beyond the social media popularity game and to have a more in-depth discussion of toy photography than… Read more »

Shelly, I’m always glad for you or anybody else to jump in. Didn’t you tell me recently that the blog is your “why I do this” post? If you aren’t jumping in, you aren’t writing your post. : ) As I think about “Why” I cannot help but section it off into 2 pieces. The “why” that I must answer to (which I believe is what you are talking about here) and the “WHY” that other people (other people being the masses more than other individuals I should say) demand from us. (The lowercase “why” is internal, the uppercase “WHY”… Read more »

Kristina, so sorry to see you go, but go you must… to other adventures in your journey. Loved to see the challenges you presented and get a better insight into the artist behind those lovely trooper life series I’ve followed for years :-)

Best of luck!

I’d love to hear more details on ‘why’ the new direction doesn’t jive with you. We’re all sad to see you go, but, why? It could be my bad – I could be behind on the details or something! (chanting) One more post! One more post!
