Blogosphere

Recommended reading

I am shockingly busy. Moving into my new home in Zionsville is only one thing in my life consuming considerable time and energy. I’m sure I’ll write about it all someday.

But thank heavens that a giant burst of post inspiration in about mid-August led to my post queue being full through about the first of October. I love it when the words flow freely and the posts nearly write themselves. Otherwise, this blog would have had to go silent through most of September.

The only thing I’m doing for the blog right now is answering comments — and aggregating each week’s favorite blog posts.

Have you noticed how film cameras seem to pop up in advertising for things not related to photography? Stephen Dowling has, and he has a hypothesis as to why. Read Why Are There So Many Film Cameras in Adverts?

Jennifer Bowman writes of the feeling of wonder, and how its experience is a luxury and a privilege. Read An ethic of wonder

Some are pointing to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as evidence of climate change. Scott Adams says not so fast: you can’t determine a long-term trend by looking out the window.

Gas station architecture has evolved greatly over the last 100 years. Paul Niedermeyer, writing for Curbside Classic, shares from a cache he found of 1950s-60s Kodachromes of gas stations. I remember seeing some stations like these during my 1970s kidhood! Read Vintage Kodachrome Snapshots: Gas Stations of the 50s and 60s

Here are the camera reviews and experience reports I found this week:

    Oh, Jim … I feel your pain! In the past three weeks we bought a condo and sold our house almost instantaneously, so I’m too frantic to give your recommended reads the attention they deserve. But soon both our lives will return to a new version of normal, and I’ll be back among your enthusiastic regular readers. In the meantime I hope your move goes well and wish you and your missus every happiness as you start this new chapter together.
