I will be here more it seems. Took a trip to visit family last week in Asheville, and went untethered, no ipad. I don’t have all the social media stuff on my phone, it is a functional tool. I enjoyed it very much. Since returning, I have found less and less satisfaction with how instagram works. I had a flurry of participation on the 4th, mostly deleted. It’s a habit I can change and create new habits. I am finding new people on ello, and posting there.

I don’t enjoy photography as much in the summer in the south, too hot, harsh light. Sometimes I try to go at dusk or when there is a small break in the heat, 80s instead of 90s. This was taken from my car window at my wife Kitty’s workplace, air conditioning.

  1. Very cool, looks like an anime supervillain!

    As you know, I’m not on social media (writ large) too often, but I did (foolishly) get back on twitter. The intention was networking, but I go down meaningless political rabbit holes. I see a lot of people there complaining about IG and its awful reels/ads.

    1. The thing about IG that finally broke me was the forcing of posts to the top of the feed, the you need to engage with this, we demand it. I created a twitter account and posted about it on IG and the only person who followed me there was my wife. That should tell me something. A new local artist friend that I met through IG commented to me that no one reads blogs anymore, and based on this one, she seems to be right. I think I have over estimated the appeal of what I do, except to me.
