“If my heart were a stone, it could anchor me down in still waters and hold me fast against winds of uncertainty. Rather, I was given one of flesh and blood that is two sizes too big, and a brain that doesn’t share a common tongue with it. What I see and hear seldom agrees with what I feel, and then once more what I feel and what I think are seldom on speaking terms with one another. Lend me then some small sense of harmony that might make good of all of these things and steer me true.”—Haarvey Aardvark
I haven’t checked into Tumblr for awhile. But in checking in this morning, I’ve found the composition of my newsfeed has changed drastically. I have to wonder if Tumblr has gotten more aggressive about filtering content. I was pretty surprised when they removed one of my images.
Searches for terms that you’d think would be commonly used like “butt” are returning zero results. What gives?
Out with the old, in with the new old. When my Graflex Crown Graphic gets back from maintenance in about 2 weeks, I’m going to want to build an almost entirely new portfolio with it on B&W film. If you want in on this, please reach out to me.
I’ve had some people emailing me and checking to see if I’m still alive. Yes, I’m alive. Not just alive, but thriving. I’m just not producing much photography that I want to share right now, nor am I getting out socially much. Sorry.

Wow dude! your Crucifix pic is going nutz on Tumblr! Congrats!
Yeah, amazing, isn’t it? I was flying under the radar here. One well-followed person noticed that pic and it just took off from there. My follower count is still pretty low in spite of the popularity of that particular image.
I wonder if they’ll notice the daisy image next. :)
