On flickr, where I post under another name, there is a drive towards eyeballs which pushes your efforts in a certain direction. It is hard to break out of that. On my other blog I post photos of my travels. Elsewhere I post photos of people. I think I’m getting stale.
I need a place where I can do only what I feel like doing. I need a studio in public view where I can improve at what I can do. I hope this will become such a place.
Please leave a comment if you think there’s something I could have done better. Feel free to tell me when you don’t like something (it helps if you can tell me why you don’t like it). Please leave a note and a link to any work of yours which you think is connected in any way with one of mine (explain it when you do, because I need training to see through your eyes). But I’ll ruthlessly discard the meaningless comment “Nice”, because I reserve the right to decide what comments I allow.
If you like what I am doing, come by once a week, once a month, look around and say something interesting. I don’t want to post a lot here: only when I have something which excites me. Sometimes I would also like to showcase your work which touches me in some way. I’ll ask your permission before I do this, because I respect your intellectual property.
