Secrets….who doesn’t have a few, right?
well, I’ve got one to give you- we’ll keep it between just us, right?…..
One of my favorite daily posts I check is this: APHLOG
This blog/site is unique to me in that it congregates multiple posts from other sites and blogs into one easy to look at page. There is a TON of stuff to learn by clicking on the links shown- but there is something more valuable than all the other portals to other posts. If you scroll thru till you almost get to the bottom you’ll find my “secret inspiration” of the day- there is where APHLOG really gets me to come back daily- sometimes more than once! There is a conglomeration of photos gleaned from popular views on Flickr that is ever changing. Each time you refresh, there’s something new- maybe one photo or two change each time you “refresh” the page.
I have found inspiration from everyday people ( not just photographers- but people who love photography) here that I might not ever have heard of nor seen before; but who’s ideas and commentary ( Oh yes! You MUST read the commentary to really experience some of the photos the way they are meant to be…) are fresh AND refreshing!
There are photos from people all over the world and in many languages as well- The cool part is after you click on one of the many photos to choose from, it takes you to that persons flickr site and you feel like you get a chance to know them, or at least learn something about them.
This is the “personal connection” that you don’t get just by seeing a photo by itself.
Hope you take a look and enjoy………….
