emails

I apologise to anybody who has been waiting a long time for an email reply from me.  I still have a large backlog of emails to reply to.

-  On 31 May 2017, I had 594 emails to reply to.

-  On 12 June (when I decided to cut back on my updating to the EdinPhoto site) I had 620 emails to reply to.

 

-  However, I've been working most of the time since 12 June on reducing my backlog and I'm getting through them!

 

-  I now have 322  emails to reply to  -  32 from 2015,  290 from 2013.
I'll try to reply to them all.

I've been considering the future of the Edinphoto web site.  Here are my conclusions (below).  Please click on the link below to read my reasons behind these conclusions.

-  The EdinPhoto web site will remain available on the Internet.

-  I'll now only make very occasional updates to the web site.

-  I'll try to respond to all emails that I've received this year.

-  If you sent your email earlier, please chase me if you'd like a reply.

- Thank you to all for your contributions and encouraging comments.
