While in Euope and posting actively on this blog, realized that I have been writing and posting on Singular Images for over three years. I guess a couple of years ago, I would have been counting the days to make an anniversary post, but some things have changed since then. I don’t know that it is neccessary to dreg all of the changes up, but this blog has become one of a place for reflection. Why do that in public, I still don’t fully understand, but nevertheless I do.
At times recently I wonder if this blog will weither away and die an unknown death. Then something occurs and I am motivated again to post my thoughts or want to push a photograph or two onto the web and see how it looks. It is a place of solace during my international travel, that much I have begun to understand.
So a quick recap of things to come: I am re-working my project Insomnia: Hotel Noir (photograph with this post will potentially will be included), eliminating the blue tonality and darkening the mood. Since I have some additional insights on my trip to China, I will probably try to finish Wo Zhi Kan Kan. Now with the time I am spending in Europe, prodominately Italy and probably soon more time in France, I have a preliminary project in Italy that I working some kinks out and for France I have a project that I am now investigating there as well.
