Sometimes things end up in the blog or the store because someone contacts me and says something like, do you have any shots of Brooklyn? No, not the bridge or Coney Island. Anything else? No, that’s too abstract. Nothing with people in it. But something that says, Brooklyn.
In the meantime – it’s been a busy few days. Looks like I may end up in another documentary about a well-known street photographer. Maybe. Some inquiries for photography lessons and two new students signed up. And since I put up the sale thing – a few sales. There’s also a big project in the works, which if it happens will get me through to the end of the year. But of course I can’t talk about that unless it happens.
I did have an idea for a new sort of blog – an anonymous blog where any photographer could post but would be anonymous – both from the anonymous moderator and through emails, etc. I’ve always wanted to do something like that since most professionals can’t really talk about what’s going on for fear of offending someone — and actually – it’s a good idea for any sort of subject. A completely anonymous but moderated (anonymously) blog. Is it possible to do such a thing? Have you ever seen one? As far as whether the anonymous poster would be recognized or not – that would be up to their posts, but the moderator would try and make sure that nothing that might identify the poster was in the post. Funny thing is that this exists and has existed for a long time. It’s called a complaint box. You drop an unsigned piece of paper into it and someone reads it, or throws it away. But it’s actually harder to do on the web.
