WTF I Have Been Doing

Gentle Viewer Anonymous writes:

Dear lowly and humble photographic servant. What have you been doing?

So I wrote back that I've been enjoying the winter etc... and immediately get back...

NO, DUMBASS! I MEAN WITH YOUR BLOG! WTF have you been DOING? IT'S FULL OF CRAP!

love, a concerned Gentle Viewer.

OOOOooh. I get it now. Yeah. I haven't been taking much because as much as I've been enjoying the winter, it's not particularly productive photowise and in the past I've had extensive archives to dig through. I still have them, they are just dug through.

I've also been in that Blackhole known as facebook and putting together things on flickr. Above of which is a sample.

Some of my favorite portraits collected into one set.

(also known as 'just pictures of people')

Go see if you are there. If not. WHY NOT?

  1. I'm pretty sure I'm not in there... I'm a lousy photographic subject.

  3. Are you suggesting that regular gentle viewers are capable of a level of discernment that goes beyond "oh, it's just more TTotM crap"? (Yes, I include myself in that question)

    Perhaps the issue is that there is just not enough variety of crap. Until recently gentle viewers have been used to seeing new crap appear more regularly (which had the virtue of virtually composting the old crap). January was the first time since the Pleistocene Epoch of the TTotM that you posted less than 20 times. Without a flurry of posts this week, February will be rather lean, as well. Compare that with July (276) and August (249) of 2005 (hereafter known as the lowly and humble steroid months) and maybe that gentle viewer has an unintentional point...

    Yea, verily... the only conclusion we can make is that, dare I say it..., WE WANT MORE CRAP!

  5. I'm not there... because... YOU DON'T LOVE ME!!! *sob!*

    No. Wait. It's because we've never met.

    I feel much better now.

    Thanks!

  6. My calls to cull have fallen on deaf ears. Some of these aren't even "pictures of people"- they are "pictures that just happen to have people in em"

  7. One of my daunting tasks this week was to go through my "camera practice" file and cull. Only I got to playing with Serif and found out I can take those really bad pictures and spin them and round them and pull them into really weird effects that I might someday use on my blog. Ok Ok I probably won't but it is a great waste of time.
