I didn't know when I started this blog how important writing would end up feeling to the project. I have debated with myself about whether it's even right to have text as part of it, you know, pictures being worth a thousand words and all. I have wondered if, on a photoblog, the pictures should speak for themselves.
But I'm a verbal person, a writer by nature and by trade. I decided that this is a journal of my study of this visual art form - a public one, but a journal nonetheless - and since I'm learning every day it makes sense to take notes.
I hope the pictures stand on their own. But if they're made even better by the words, I'd be happy about that too.
