Monte Carlo Daily Photo is taking a temporary break ...


The Oceanographic Museum at sunset and a temporary au revoir ...

Monte Carlo Daily Photo is taking a break after publishing daily for over 6 years. Menton Daily Photo will continue, so do please visit me there where I may well publish the odd Monaco photo taken when I visit friends in Monte Carlo.

The reason is that I'm putting all my creative energies into a book of photography and words. All will be revealed eventually...

I want to thank everyone so very much for being so faithful to this blog - for your encouragement and comments. Currently there are 10,000 people a month who look at Monte Carlo Daily Photo, of which 5,000 are what Google refer to as 'unique visitors' so I'm aware that I'm saying a temporary goodbye to a lot of people. But I will be back one day.

I simply need to concentrate my creative energies on my book. 

lots of love and thanks - Jilly xxx

I visit the site every day, so it's a little disappointing this news. On the other hand good to know you'll be back.

Wonderful sendoff photo today - awesome light control and framing.

Good luck

Sad to hear of the pause in MCDP!
Looking at it every day for fond memories and the latest changes en principaute, I will miss it!

Hope you can resume it soon!

In the meantime, maybe you could invite MCDP viewers to send you Monaco photos to post? Old or new photos, to keep the page going?

Best wishes, Diane from Texas

Thankyou so much for your kind comments. I'll be back one day. In fact, when I go into Monaco to visit friends, doubtless I'll snap a few pics.

Diane, unfortunately your idea wouldn't work for me. It would take as long to post someone else's photo as mine and it's time and energy I'm trying to save. Someone else suggested I repost some old pics - ie ones I've posted before - but the same thing applies - it's a complete re-post.

There are, of course, over 6 years of daily photos on the blog so anyone can browse.

I'll miss your daily insight into life in Monaco, but understand your need to write your book. Is it going to a best shots of Monte Carlo compendium?

Donna said...

Jilly, We are thrilled that you are finally going to "write that book", and are so happy for you! With your photos, and insightful thoughts about them, it's sure to be a best seller! Just hope we can get a copy in the States. Best regards, Sherri & Donna from Atlanta GA

I would be remiss if I did not join in the chorus of those who've developed a daily habit and will now be deprived of it; but I both understand and support you in your wish to turn the page. That's what life's all about.

I'll be watching.....and waiting.

Dear Jilly,

That is sad news-but good for you. I will miss MCDP a lot, i used to take a glimpse almost daily since the last 2 years. So many very beautiful photos and insight into " normal" Monaco and surroundings. The area between Menton and Cannes always have been one of my favourite destinations for travels, and thanks to your Blog, i always had even more to discover. Just this Mai i had lunch with friends at Stars n Bars, a place i would never had known if not read in your blog. You should get a reward or acknowledgement by the Monaco authorities for your efforts to bring Monaco area closer to the world abroad. So thank you very much for all your work and blessings for your new project. Albert from Zurich
