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.

because ‹reasons›

i've stopped shooting recently. i'm doing minimal shooting recently.

i feel as if i've gone though a long process of just learning to shoot and edit, and now i need to stop and think. i need to figure out what to do with what i've learned, if anything.

so i'm thinking.

ted forbes helps me think. he's got a great vlog which covers all sorts of facets of photography -- from the art to technical issues.

his heart's in it.

he had a bad time recently, as he lost a dearly-loved pet, a cat named finley, and his second-to-most-recent video was about his loss.  and then there was music. ted's a photographer, and a musician.

so i wasn't paying too much attention when he started playing his guitar, but i left it on and moved on to other windows. after a bit, i realized that i was loving what i was subliminally hearing and i listened more carefully.

there was ted, playing, with heart.

i downloaded the video. i grabbed the music into an mp3, and then i started wondering how i'd feel if i saw my pictures coupled with the track. so i made this video. this is first and foremost about his haunting track.

i set it to unlisted and shared it with ted. ted wants me to share it with you.

so here it is.

thanks, ted.
