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!

I just started following your blog because of your photography and now I’m smitten with your words!Love the sequence beginning “Little journeys”.
I’m a firm believer in you open one door and it leads to another. My blog is ‘food and travel’ but that’s where it started. Along the way, I found I needed to improve my photography, find my writing voice, learn technology, etc. — and I’m anxious for new discoveries that lie ahead.

Oh, but I love food! And travel! Your blog looks amaaaaaaazing, definitely one for my RSS feed
Sometimes I wonder about what I would be doing if I wasn’t in the place that blogging and photography had led me… I don’t think it would be so much fun but I am sure it would be a lot tidier!

I love your words, and that article is awesome. Your personality shines through in every sentence.

Thanks, lovely one xx

lol, that was a round about way to say it, but I liked it you’re right, our situations are similar… I love to write too, I’ve written over 50 articles for Lomography now and its still fun! I usually write the requested articles as I like having assignments too.

I do yammer on a bit!
Writing articles is cool – like homework but about interesting stuff 😀

Read your articles and loved them. And that photo of the Cornish beach is striking … like the square format.
