Musings

For years in the late 2000s I was obsessed with a few different photo blogs. Blogging seemed to be at its peak, and photo blogs were their own niche category, many of them running on the same platform. Every day I would check Daily Dose of Imgaery, Chromasia, and especially A Walk Through Durham Township. These inspired, and put a slow growing seed somewhere in the back my head. I had always wanted to create a daily photo project. I’m sad to check back and see that they haven’t been updated in years, and that others I frequented now just point to dead links. As Facebook and Instagram took over, photo blogs (and blogs in general) continue to die, as more people take to the quick publish tools of social media and the instant gratification. There are a lot of days I wish they’d come back, maybe one day I’ll check and they’ll each have a new batch of daily images.
