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.

boston.com disappoints

my comment on boston.com:

"
'i'm also from greece and i find that boston.com's decision to showcase the violence that broke out for a short time in one day, after almost a month of peaceful protests. on this day, as increasingly austere measures were being discussed in parliament and a record-breaking number of protesters showed up, a small gang of troublemakers were -i suspect- inserted into the perpetually peaceful crowd to create chaos and to hopefully break up and disperse the protest. it didn't work, the troublemakers were thwarted, and the protesters reclaimed the square. the decisionmakers at boston.com should be ashamed of themselves for highlighting this incident instead of the hopeful images we've had for almost a month now. i visited the square three times -- so far -- and shot my own images. people truly interested in events in greece should view pictures taken by local residents instead of these taken by journalists hungry for a moment of violence. here are mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/toomanytribbles/sets/72157626881565876/'
"

please find a sample of the webpage's disappointing decision-making here. one wonders what their intentions and priorities are.
