For my first post, I have decided that throughout this blog … I will go against my nature and not be reactionary to events or frustrating influences encountered on a daily basis. In other words I will play nice … yeah … play nice. As I have in the past curbed the impulse to strangle, berate or go primitive on peoples or institutions rear-ends … in my space, I will write about things and people who interest me, make me smile or are dear to my heart; home, family, grandchildren, children, and Gretchen the dog will do nicely.
And … there will be photographs on this blog. I will try to make them interesting but this will not always happen. The one thing I have found out is that you cannot predict what the public will like, favor or repeatedly view. I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out a pattern of behavior. I know what I like in photography and I know what frustrates me. I have never gotten the hang of food porn as they call it. It is something I will have to work on and suggestions will be appreciated.
I will try for a while to post at least once a week if not more. I used to do Intersect posts and produced the columns in a somewhat shotgun manner. It worked for a while but consumed a lot of valuable. I think a once a week blog post to start will be sufficient. Later … as I get comfortable and maybe squeeze more personal time free, a comfortable rhythm will appear.
Next week … I don’t do commercial work and after the latest shoot for a friend … I don’t do favor shoots NO more. This blog post is contingent on nothing coming to mind or a scheduling change.
