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.

  1. Got to admit, I don't much agree with this sort of name and shame. It may be that 99% of the guys in there have done terrible terrible things, but if someone compiling the list has made a single mistake, that person's life can be devastated. If we think that showing these photos will save an innocent child, or many, then the weight of the decision of the margin of error versus the amount of good that can be done by showing these photos is a heavy one. Not saying that one categorically shouldn't post this, but I do think that the issues aren't as simple as they may appear.

  2. i agree that it's not so simple.

    from what i've seen, the overwhelming majority of mojoey's posts are convicted and the info, a matter of public record. yes, there's always going to be misses, but the intent here is to help people understand the extent of the problem, as many people think that perpetrators such as these are rare. specifics -- names and faces -- make the issue seem more real somehow.

    yes, it could be that some people are convicted unfairly.

    you might be interested in one of his recent posts, 'all doors must have windows'

    where he described measures that can be taken to prevent clergy sexual abuse.
