    Surviving a marriage break up. Might not be around here as often.

    I'll be trying to stick my head in as often as possible, and certainly won't forget that I have a camera, because using it helps bring me pleasure, but I also might not be in here quite as often.
    Thankfully the kids are 20 and 21, so they're pretty well sorted and fine. It's just messy stuff like houses, and loans to be sorted, provided counseling doesn't end up seeing us back together that is (so far counselors have suggested it's definitely repairable).
    Will keep popping in as much as possible, even if it's just for a spirit lift as I admire some amazing photography. Cheers to all.

    Chin up Zook. If it's repairable, and it's worth repairing, then grab it and repair it.
    Cheers

    Best of luck with it all. And we will be here when you need some stress relief, a laugh, some photography to look at.

    Real life comes before a website, so focus on the important stuff and leave the lens focusing for later.

    I hope everything works out for the best for you and all concerned. It's always a tough thing, but as Graeme says be positive and get the camera out to take your mind off things. When I am stressed, it is amazing how a few hours of photography takes my mind off it all.

    Hang in there. the future is a beautiful place. Be positive and find space to use the camera. I found it very therapeutic when I was where you are now.

    Hi Ezookiel

    I used photography to survive a crap marriage. Met some great people here on AP. I have moved on and could not be happier with many new friends, a great new partner. OK, so my photography is still crap, I got to keep all my camera gear.

    Each day is a new day and try and make it better than the last.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Chin up mate. And the kids maybe 20-21 But need just as much support as you and your partner. They are the ones that will keep both of you sane through this whole situation. Good luck.

    Go gently with yourself. My marriage ended just after I joined AP a few years ago and the upheaval and sadness that came with it meant I had no creative passion for photography and no energy to put into learning.
    It took a little while but in hindsight it's amazing how quickly things start to pick up. I hope you get thru the tangles quickly and are able to enjoy life and your photography again real soon.

    I've had my camera on AUTO for far too long... learning the ropes on my Sony A300.
    C&C welcome - but keep it simple!
    I'm more interested in capturing memories than in taking the best photo ever (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

    Hey Zook-sorry to hear this mate. I'm just three and a bit years into my nearly 20 year relationship ending. Tough to get through I can tell ya and there are times where you just don't want to acknowledge what's happening. No matter what there's always people here and around you willing to listen and, if needed, provide some perspective. Don't feel like this is something you have to do, or get through alone: Friends and people you can talk too are so very important right now. There's nothing more important than communication as I found out, so keep talking with your partner as much as possible and others to help you with what you're experiencing.

    Best of luck with everything and don't hold back coming here for a chat.

    - Bill
