Blogging has taught me something about myself; that I love to write. Little journeys; one tentative word in front of the another, before long I’m walking, running, skipping – I can travel in any direction, stop whenever I choose, or just keep going and going and going. It’s fun! Yes, I’m passionate about photography but the realisation that something as simple as a handful of words can be so powerful, well it leaves me a bit awestruck and dizzy – there’s so much potential in me, in you, in all of us – we just need it a way of recording and sharing. Leave me a comment if you have your own blog – I may not have seen it and I love discovering new people; new worlds.
With writing though there are time when all that white space can be a scary thing. When I feel like this I often find it’s easier to be given an assignment or restricted in some way – do you find that? Give me something to write about, something for the creeping ivy of my words to wrap themselves around, then just watch those words fly!
Hmm, I guess all this has been a round-about way of saying ‘hey, here’s something I’ve written for Lomography Magazine‘, it’s about shooting photos in square-format. Being given a subject to write about really sparks my imagination and this brought lots of memories flooding back!
