Intent of the Blog
I used to have a Wordpress blog that I found awkward to maintain, that was infested by Russian bots, and was beyond my ability to format. It is my hope that this resurrected blog newly incorporated into my website platform will not suffer from those deficiencies.
I have several goals.
- I enjoy sharing my images,
- I'll offer tips on various topics, from shooting to software and hardware. I'll also recount stories and observations about travels, people, and issues that attract my attention.
- I've produced over 20 books and am working on several more in a desultory manner. Blog readers will be subjected to rough draft paragraphs that may eventually make their way to publication after some editorial nipping and tucking.
I'm sure I'll offend some people along the way. I don't care. I don't need approval. Disagreement doesn't bother me at all, and had I not tolerated it, I would have learned less. I find people pretty similar under the skin, desiring some comfort, the best for their loved ones, and hoping to get ahead. Most also carry a large portion of mental baggage: unwarranted beliefs, reflexive prejudices, excessive fears, and the inability to distinguish evidence from comforting nonsense. I do not exempt myself from this assessment, but I try to test my assumptions against counter evidence. Fair warning.
I'll aim to focus more than 50% on photography and travel. The rest will wander through history, literature, politics, philosophy, religion, philosophy, etc.
