In the words of Paul Simon, "I have reason to believe we all shall be received in Graceland."
Best wishes for a joyous Christmas, or for your own version of the holiday season, to Southern photographers and Southern photography fans everywhere.
The Southern Photographer will now take a short break from chronicling Fine Art Photography in the American South while your humble blogger attends to other professional and personal responsibilities.
Thank you for your attention, and especially your kind words of support for this blog during the past year.
We look forward to resuming our chronicle after the 25th of December.
In the meanwhile, remember that Christmas is a season, not just a day, and the season of Christmas is 12 days long.
So its Christmas from December 25th all the way through until Twelfth Night, January 5th, 2015.
In the meantime, we wish you all the joy that the holiday season can bring, and a Happy New Year, too.
