Huntington, West Virginia
We had an early dinner at Jim\’s Spaghetti today and then a short walk to the shops at Heritage Station where I found this old date on a rock. The usual evening rain storm came through shortly after that.
I was a little bummed out today to find that Sam Javanrouh at Daily Dose of Imagery has announced that his blog is entering its 10th and final year. I wasn\’t so surprised, while general blogging seems quite popular (in particular cooking and politics), the photoblog seems to be a dying style of publication. I\’ve long admired Sam\’s style and I found this to be his last year when I popped into his site for some inspiration on shooting cityscapes and "wider" scenes after not being so happy with this photo. Over time, I\’ve gravitated to what I would call detail shots and a goal for the next 12 months is to shoot a better mix of wider scenes. So we\’ll enjoy Sam\’s last year of daily shots and maybe get some lessons at the same time.
