new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

'i have told this to few people, gentlemen, and i suspect never will again, but one day when i was a young boy on holiday in uberwald i was walking along the bank of a stream when i saw a mother otter with her cubs. a very endearing sight, i'm sure you will agree, and even as i watched, the mother otter dived into the water and came up with a plump salmon, which she subdued and dragged on to a half-submerged log. as she ate it, while of course it was still alive, the body split and i remember to this day the sweet pinkness of its roes as they spilled out, much to the delight of the baby otters who scrambled over themselves to feed on the delicacy. one of nature's wonders, gentlemen: mother and children dining upon mother and children. and that's when i first learned about evil. it is built in to the very nature of the universe. every world spins in pain. if there is any kind of supreme being, i told myself, it is up to all of us to become his moral superior.'
