Photo-a-day: January 30 2012

January 30th: and then, it started snowing.

(And because snow is just a cold version of rain, the sky is grey.)

    I took me while until I understood why you have two dates here. This what I call analog lag 🙂

      Yes, it is… and it is confusing, and although it is interesting for me to see what I shot a month ago, “Photo-a-day” might be more relevant to visitors if it really showed the photo of that particular day. Of today.

      (Well, my photo-a-day exercise has come to an end, it’s just the analog lag that you’re seeing here.)

    You know that guy Brooks Jensen from LensWork, so what he did was 100 shots a year. And it didn’t had to be any shots he must have done in those 3 days could be older images, but images he never published before. And he tried to make a little attempt to keep those images in small sets so they fit to each other.

    I think that is not bad they, little more effort and less pressure from time. I would even go as low as one per week, with story explanation, though process behind that image. Would you join me? Should we start by first spring week? Like now? Tell me.

    Oh by the way it is very bad to keep track of these posts here and comments. I should go back to some decent RSS reader, or if you could published tweet ever time something happen here. Hm nice idea should I make WordPress plugin to send tweet every time new comment is posted, that would be great.

      Interesting, but… for now, I’m taking a break from the photo-a-day or even the photo-a-week (well, as soon as all photos from the analog lag are posted). Maybe later!

      A plugin to tweet or share new posts via whatever social media? I think something like that already exists, and… I will look into that, might be nice to have an extra way to share new posts.

    I was not talking about sharing post via twitter, but keep tracks of comments. Imagine that if I write now the comment there will be tweet from me to you (not direct) with link to post and comment.

    This would require people post their twitter account name on the commenting page not only email. But it may be even without the twitter names.
