After plenty of inner debate about the self indulgence of starting a blog, here I am. I thought that with a website (and a second site in the works), Facebook and MySpace profiles, Flickr, Snapfish, and Photobucket accounts, I had enough cyber real estate. However, one question I always get regardless of my publicly posted information is, "What are you working on?". I seem to have come to a place where I am only sharing work as it is completed or published and the truth is, I'm constantly working on projects that may not go in my portfolio and so they sit in the wings indefinitely. I always have a camera with me and with an archive of images growing by the day, I thought I should start somewhat of a journal. Goodness knows I don't need to carry another book around with me so, for now, this will be that journal.
I hope to use this not only to share random photos and explorations but also as a place to post the workings of some projects, for example my cookbook. Today's photos of thistle were taken during a walk in Frick Park in Pittsburgh while visiting during Christmas. It was overcast, fresh, cool, and peaceful.
