Slobodan's insightful and always entertaining voice has been missing for the last few weeks.  Anyone know what's up?

People get busy with work/life/holidays etc, so he may simply be otherwise occupied.

Maybe he's actually out photographing. I hope so.

I wondered too.
Hopefully he's allright.
His last activity on Flickr was January 23, here on Lula January 28.

We can always hope that he has simply come to his senses and got back a life.

Yes, I certainly hope that's the case.

On the other hand, perhaps he's just embarked on a long voyage with his real Hasselblad and will knock us out with its real images again! It doesn't do a man any good to get too involved with glue and jewellery for too long.

Just got an answer back from Slobodan:

"Yes, I am ok... physically at least. Financially and otherwise, that is another matter. I am less than a year away from a  complete financial catastrophe, i.e., the moment when my liquid savings literally evaporate. Thus I decided to wean myself off all unnecessary distractions and concentrate all my efforts on finding a job."

We're gonna miss him, but he's gotta do what he's gotta do. I hope he'll come back once things settle down.

That is sad, but I'm glad he's basically OK.
Anyone as smart and articulate as him should be able to get a job easily, but the current economy doesn't favor the talented and deserving.

I'm sure we all wish him the best of luck and hope to see him back in a few months time.

Thanks for checking on him, Russ.

Yes, and the worst thing is that he's far from alone.

I look at my own situation where the only advantage I have is that I'm much older with less expected time ahead to finance and no children dependent upon me.

In 2007 my apartment was worth in the region of X pounds or euros, depending on the buyer; today, similar but smaller-terraces ones in the complex are for sale (mine was a one-off designed for the developer's wife as investment but they split), and one sold recently for about 0.5X because the owner has no money worries and had already bought a villa a couple of hundred yards away. This further distorts the market. A further five in the complex are also sporting Se Vende signs. I'd like to get out of Spain just to make death duties less painful for the kids, but without my throwing away the place for a pittance, seems I'm stuck.

I never thought I'd see the day estate agents went bust! I have seen it.

There is a lot of it about Rob. I had three companies in a row go bust on me in the day job as the recession ravaged Ireland and have been pretty much left to my own devices for the last three years. There is no hope of earning money with a camera out in this part of the world, I have seen several people set up and disappear again in town and the old established photographer is hardly driving around in a Lamborghini, hence photography has become just a part of what I am trying to do. Is our house worth anything like we bought it for? Nope, and won't be for quite a time, but it cost half the price of the equivalent in the English midlands even at the height of the boom and gave the girls room to grow in their teenage years, which is just as important, if not more so.

Slobodan is quite right to draw in his tentacles and look at where he is and where he wants/needs to go. I faced exactly the same situation and it's a sobering experience, it still is.
