Photography and Flow
[I wrote this in Oct 2011 - reposting here on my new blog. The text below is truer now, more than ever.

I’ll definitely be back next year - hopefully with more of my team. The conference was made possible by an incredible set of...
OK - after a few years of posting exclusively on photography, I’m going to start over. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and the timing just seems right. My previous wordpress / photography blog is now on life support as I start afresh with shorter simpler thoughts and hopefully more regular entries … Going to give tumblr a shot - I like the simple design and tools. ...
