I wanted to say something deep and meaningful but all I can think of right now is that I no longer have the desire to maintain a blog and that I should have quit a long time ago and that I would like to spend my energy trying to figure out how to make my pessimism, mediocrity and poor work ethic work for me.
This blog will turn ten this September. It has been a fulfilling ten years, I am proud of what I have managed to achieve with it. When I started this journey the internet was still a pleasant place, everybody had a voice and it was possible to carve out your own niche in a corner somewhere but social media happened. We all got wrapped up in bubbles that we and algorithms created and we only consumed what reinforces our viewpoint. Big media also came to the picture and absorbed almost all independent content creators. The internet now is awful (Maybe it’s still pleasant, maybe I’m just too old) and I don’t want to add to the noise, at least not right now.
I will probably still write. I will probably still shoot but my words and pictures will probably stay confined in my hard-drive for now.
Shout out to everyone who took the time out to look at my photos, read and comment on my musings these past nine years. Much appreciated.
