I was asked yesterday if I define myself more as a photographer or as a poet.

I'm not sure there's any difference.

When I write and I shoot, my aim is to collect moments. I want to understand them, I want to feel them. I love how precious moments are. I shoot the same why I write: careful detail to colours and description that are lost on most eyes and minds. I want people to see the world like I do. I want them to feel it like I can.

but now everyone can go capture moments with their digital cameras. but the difference is passion. I still beleive moments aren't precious until they're done. It would be really nice to lock yourself in a moment..don't you think?!

Locked in a moment... for the short- or long-term?

I forgot I even had to set up a blog to comment on a blog. I hate technology mostly. I like books and letters.

I'm working on a new piece .. but I seem to have this new idea that my poetry can combine my love of visual art as well (not new I know but somewhat new for me) and I feel somewhat frustrated by the restraints I feel at the websites ..

Its a Fragments kinda of piece I think the title will be A Love Poem in Fragments and Footnotes.

I want to write part of it in footnotes. Hi.

Just for the record:
Books and letters rely on extremely advanced technology by anyone's standards 500 years ago.
The internet's less than twenty years old. Give it a few centuries to get the flaws ironed out. ;)
