In the Reflections
I often find myself at a loss for what to write on this here blog. Images are not a problem - as I type this there are a good ten posts that have images ready and are just waiting for words to make them complete and postable.
But what do I say about them? I often find myself with a disconnect, or a problem if priorities: which comes first, the image or the words? Should I write about the photos and perhaps not say what's on my mind at the moment, or should I write a post about a topic and then illustrate it with a photo that has absolutely nothing to do with it?
Or should I plan ahead, and only show photos and produce posts that can do both for me? It's a bit of an open question these days, and one I've been pondering for a while, one that speaks to the very nature of this blog and what it's here for.
I blog for a few reasons. For one, to share my work, especially personal work that doesn't have a client to appreciate and use it. Also, and maybe more importantly, to connect with all of you, and to create a place of my own on this her huge internet playground.
So if you don't hear from me for a while, don't despair, I'm just taking a moment to rethink it all and figure out what I want to say with this blog.
