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.

"on the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘blue marble’ photograph taken of earth from space, planetary collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the overview effect.

the overview effect, first described by author frank white in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

overview is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the overview effect. the film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.
