The New Look of My Blog

My Photography Blog

Welcome! For some people, blogging is as simple as breathing. Their words flow easily, or at least, that’s the way it appears. I suspect I know better. Supposedly Red Smith said, “Writing is easy. You just open a vein and bleed.” Despite having worked with words as a public relations practitioner and having once been an English major, I often find writing a torturous exercise.

I understand now that it’s often no my own judgment causing my writer’s block but the imaginary judges in my mind. It’s why I believe a good photograph should say enough or lend itself to interpretation and not need words except to maybe identify time and place.

An artist starts with a blank canvas. A photographer starts with what’s in front of a lens.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
