After a couple of the last few comments, it has struck me that this blog is veering way off track and that what I am putting up is becoming way too esoteric to be of much use to you. So it is time to take stock.
I originally started it up so I could keep faith with those of you whom I care about (and there are lots of you), who had been friends and/or students of mine, and whom I was unable to help in the way I wanted to because of the insane pace of my (former) life. It was a way to be there for you and to conitinue to be of service without doing( a bad job of) AP3. After all, you had paid good money to put up with my diatribes and thoughts on photography, and I felt I owed you all( I still do). Your friendship did ( and still does) really matter to me.
Then my personal life went nuclear and it was difficult to keep faith and maintain perspective. But I have tried.
loking at few of the comments of late, it occurs to me that I may be in danger of disappearing up my intellectual .....maybe , like Iago, i think too much. Maybe I have become intellectually arrogant.
I want to hear about it.
So, to all of you out here, especially those of you who visit, and don't comment, I issue a challenge.
What do you need and what do you not need?
What is helpful and what is not?
What posts do you like and what do you wish there were more of?
What do you hate?
100 people a day hit this blog. I want to hear from all of you, wherever you are-and I would love to know where you are!
Help me out- I want to continue to be of service (and don't hold back!)
As an incentive, I will personally make and freight a signed, numbered image I have made
to the comment that contributes the most to the future direction of this community. To anywhere in the world!
Just add a comment to the bottom of this post.
