Yes. Blog names are hard! And lazy portmanteaus are easy!
Who are you?
I am a silly man who sometimes takes serious pictures.
No, really. Who are you?
I am a man who wears many hats. Mostly silly hats. During my 20’s, I did many things for money (nothing overly demeaning or exploitative). I worked at JFK airport, taught tennis, worked in a publishing company, and also tried my hand at freelance travel writing. The writing gigs sustained me for a few years before I moved on to something more stable. Then I found myself in a series of office jobs that got me through my early 30’s and while they were less exciting than travel writing, it did help fund one of my biggest passions: photography.
Ok. But if a picture is worth a 1000 words, why bother blogging?
After clearing years of dust off my keyboard, I finally contributed to a book in 2017 and realized I really missed writing. While I still love telling stories with my camera, I find myself wanting to share more. I want to tell stories of how certain shots came about, how specific pieces of gear played a vital role in some situations, or why I gravitate towards certain locations. And sometimes, I get the hankerin’ to be purposefully pointless.
If I want to complain about how awful one of your stories is, how do I do so?
