First thoughts- self, how did I get here?

As I'm putting this site together, I've been thinking about what I hope to accomplish with all of this.

For starters, as I've shared photos in recent years, a lot of my friends have said "these are great- what are you going to do with all of em?" Don't know about the "great" part, but leaving them in the electronic drawer doesn't make much sense. At the same time, I wrestle with the self-promotional aspect of a photo site, and blogging in general. I do have a poetry/photo blog already (oldbonesnewsnow.com) that grew out of an email poetry list, but I don't like the way images work on that site.  

So what's the big deal with a photo only site? Like a pro photographer friend of mine says, "the world really doesn't need another photographer..."  And then there's the other question - "are you gonna sell your pictures?" Maybe, I haven't decided. I know that if I shift gears from the making of images to trying to think about selling them (promoting, marketing, etc...) I lose interest pretty quickly.

So for now, this is a cooking site. A gallery for each place/topic I shoot or have shot and a blog on making photographic "sausage."

Back to the kitchen.....
