Catch You Later

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

My inner monologue has been over-flowing with stereotypical Jewish what ifs, guilt, second guesses, and the desire for a nice Kosher deli at Disneyland, all in Jackie Mason’s voice. Why? What’s all the fuss? As a photo blogger I need a large number of pictures to use in my weekly writing, and to get those photos requires traveling from MA to FL or to CA at least once a year.

I took this year off from Walt Disney World and in place was able to visit Miami,FL, Washington, DC, and Niagara Falls, Ontario. There’s a great big world out there that I’d like to see. That’s not to say I no longer enjoy all that Walt Disney World or Disneyland have to offer but I need to shift the balance of where I spend my time. So, as the Walt Disney Company continues raising prices my visits will become fewer.

What does that mean? It means I’ve decided to retire from writing my weekly blog, as seen here, as well as the Disney Pic of the Week. Try to hold back the tears, I’m not leaving you completely. From time to time when I have something to pipe up about regarding pretty much anything Disney, you’ll find fresh work from me. Right now I’m not sure if they’ll land in the Guest Blog, the Team Blog, in the newsletter or somewhere else on the website. You can always re-read or seek out older Light Meter blogs on AllEars.Net.

I do have some future travel plans that include a visit to Disney’s Aulani in Oahu and to Disneyland. With any luck I’ll conjure up something worth posting.

Thank you for all of the feedback, it’s nice to know someone took not only the time to read my words but to also respond to them.

I’d like to share with you some photos I’ve taken this year and last year and hope they’ll inspire you to take photos of people, places, and things.

I’ll catch you later.

  1. Gee whiz, Lisa! I just returned from WDW and read your news. Thanks for all the tips in your blogs. They really did help me!

    You’re right, there’s a huge world of great things to make pictures of. We love the National Parks best. But European cities are great, too. Oooh, don’t miss Central American rainforests or Alaskan glaciers. If you get to Australia, see New Zealand, too! I better shut up now.

    Best wishes,

    P.S. Yes, I did read my manual!!!

    Lisa responds: Thank you. I’m glad to have given you some useful info and that you read your camera’s manual. High-five!

  2. Noooooooooooooo!

    You are our favorite AllEars blogger. Love the tips and especially your sense of humor. I completely get the vacation destination dilemma. There is so much to see in the world yet we love Disney so much. Best of luck to you!

    Karen and Amanda

    Lisa responds: Thank you very much. I’m the funniest person I know.

  3. Lisa,
    Man, times they are a changin’! I’m going to really miss your trip reports and Menudo references. I am glad you will chime in from time to time so we don’t lose touch with you. Thanks for all the advice, especially on Clark Color labs!! I printed some photos there, and they turned out GREAT. Taken with a digital camera, they looked like prints from negatives of yesteryear. Will continue to print from them. I’m an album-maker, so it’s always refreshing when other people give advice to print photos. Enjoy your next adventure!!

    Lisa responds: That’s awesome news. I’m thrilled you found a lab to print your memories. I will try my best to make Menudo references in anything I write in the future for AllEars. K.O.L.M.

  4. Lisa: Thanks for all the advice you’ve provided. I appreciate the positive attitude and fun you’ve provided to this blog. I wish you lots of luck in your adventures and travels and hope you make those just as fun as you’ve made these blogs!

    Lisa responds: Thanks, Steve. I appreciate the kind words.

  5. I am going to miss you. I could always count on a good laugh reading your work. Always loved the pictures! Best of luck to you. Hope to see you back here in the future (sooner then later please)! Enjoy life and take care!

    Lisa responds: Aww, thanks for the kind words. I’ll do my best.

  6. Hi Lisa –

    Thanks for keeping me entertained these past few years. Enjoy traveling the world and taking photos!

    Lisa responds: You’re very welcome, I’m glad I achieved my goal. You know I will, I have the travel bug.

  7. Hi Lisa, I am sorry to see you go. I have loved reading your trip reports especially. Your sense of humour is terrific and I do hope you keep writing. All the best from Australia.

    Lisa responds: Thank you, all the way to Australia, a place I would absolutely love to visit.

  8. Is it weird that in my head sometimes I hear Jackie Mason but he looks like the aardvark from the Pink Panther cartoons?
    So sorry to see you go Will miss the 80s and Menudo references, the cool photo tips and of course, the humor!! Man, first Jack Spence and now you!! What’s happening to AllEars??
    Enjoy your time away and look forward to seeing whatever you care to share on here in the future.

    Lisa responds: I’m not very familiar with the Pink Panther cartoons so I can’t offer an opinion. I’m so happy you remember my love of Menudo, those are my boys, all 32 of them. I look forward to writing, too, whatever it’s about.

  9. Best wishes, Lisa! You will be missed. Loved your attitude and pics from your articles. Don’t be a stranger here. See ya real soon! Cheers!

    Lisa responds: Thanks. I’ll be around off and on. We shall where the wind takes me and what pours out of my pen.

  10. Hi Lisa, sorry to see you go. We’ve really enjoyed your blog, not just the photos and photo advice on taking photos, but for your sense of humor. Of course, wish you well in your journeys and taking your photo life. Only you have had entries that include photos or references to your own adventures, Menudo, Mickey Mouse and now Ernie Hudson! Talk about leaving on a high note! Wish you all the best and happy shuttering.

    Lisa responds: Only a sentence about me would include Menudo and Mickey Mouse. I have taught you well. Thanks for paying attention and reading my writing. Don’t get slimed.

  11. Lisa! You will be missed! Loved seeing your pictures! Best humor on AllEars. Always good for a laugh. Hope you enjoy your travels around the world. I visited Aulani this summer. The island of Oahu and the resort are beautiful! PM me on Facebook if you would like some tips. Looking forward to your Hawaii article already. All the best!

    Lisa responds: Aloha! Thanks, I enjoy making folks laugh. I may take you up on that offer. I am wicked excited about my first visit to Hawai’i. Mahalo.

  12. Farewell to another AllEars favorite. Wishing you all the best in whatever your future may hold.
