A new (photo)blog

I've created a new blog to present some photos in a better format. If you're interested, check out:


...and feel free to comment on the photos. To see the site at its best, press the F11 key — this maximises the window and hides much of the junk at the top of the screen, like the menu bar. Just press F11 again to reveal the hidden junk and restore the window to its former size. The photos are 1024 pixels wide or 750 pixels high, so you're out of luck if your screen's smaller.

Depending on the size of your monitor, you might need to scroll down to get the "Previous photo"/"Next photo" links, and the link to the comments.


A suggestion: before you click on the comments link, consider whether you've thought enough about the photo. Some responses offer intriguing and thoughtful insights, but they'll inevitably influence your own thoughts and feelings, and sometimes you might prefer to ruminate on your own awhile. (Do come back and share the results, though!)

My intention is to post a new photo roughly once per day. In general, I'll avoid posting photos that appear here on PohanginaPeteThe Ruins of the Moment is intended to supplement (or complement) PohanginaPete, not replace it.

"But perhaps this is how this moment should be remembered. A sharp, clear, well-lit photo would create its own memory, a fragment which in time would replace the actual memory of the moment. Perhaps this is the way with all photos. And perhaps it's also the way with all memories—that they're fragmentary: memories are the ruins of the moment."

The photo is fantastic - the chap sitting by the river. Lovely framing and one of those rare photos that draws you in and leaves you asking questions

Hungry pixies, thankyou. I particularly appreciate the idea that the photo asks questions; photos that do that somehow leave more room for interaction with the viewer.
(The photo in question is After lunch in the Barda Hills)

No feed? M

Fixed. It's below the "older posts" link (which is now on the left, not the right). Thanks for the suggestions, Michael.

Thank YOU. I'm much to dependent on my reader to surf by bookmark.

I appreciate looking at your images so much. The choices you make and don't make... and what you find and don't find. Thank you.

Good to hear the photos get you thinking, MB. I find it intriguing to look back and reevaluate my thoughts and opinions on my own photos. It's not always favourable, but I trust I learn from it.
