i really love these posts. the photography's so stirring - v diff from all the illustrators' work i'm always gawping at. and there's something that works really well about photos on a screen - moreso than paintings or ink. and you pick them all very well. surprises and familiarities both, in feeling and sound.

(your written posts are just as , of course.)

Thanks, and I agree: Photos don't have to fight the flatness of the screen, while paintings (and in some cases, even illustrations), lose the texture and depth they derive part or much (depending) of their power from. Also, photos are easily scaled; you don't lose as much when you're trying to fit pixels into columns. And I suppose there's something about the reproducibility of photographs. They look right in many different contexts because they aren't dependent on an original artifact.

These are some great choices. Like the interplay of the images and the music. They're nearly as evocative as your writing, but luckily we don't have to choose.

No, you can always rely on me to write--at the very least--a pretentious comment (see above). Good to have you back online (and back on the continent).

Good post. Love the photos. Love the tunes. The Field record is amazing, especially at night.
