08 Feb What's in a Photoblog?
I was recently asked if I consider any of my blogs (and you know I have many) to be photoblogs. Ahem, well, I’m not exactly sure. I write a lot about photography and post photos too at Picture This so yes, I think I would say that makes it a photoblog. Or does it? I can’t really say one way or another.
Does a true photoblog have to showcase only photographic images without words, explanations or “how-to” tips? I do have one of those photoblogs that floats around in the background behind my busier blogs; understated and pale due to my neglect and lack of blog traffic. I love it but I don’t post to it much these days. It seems that I have gotten caught up by adding words to everything I do. I have a website that speaks to passers-by in a visual language but I do long to continue this non-verbal communication in other ways.
So, now this question I’m pondering has given me a little nudge. A reminder that I love images without words. I so enjoy observing a single photograph and allowing for my own translation of that image pour over me; to stir and be stirred, to share the way I see things, or to see another perspective, to have thoughts and feelings pulse through me from an intimate visual experience between myself and a photograph.
So why don’t I just get over there and post more?
OK. I will.
