It’s been awhile since I’ve had a meta-post (blogging about my own blogging), but I’m due for one this time around.
Back in May, I blogged about the Brass Mill Center, a very suburban-styled mall in the heart of Waterbury, Connecticut’s inner city. I’m generally happy with how the article turned out, but most of the exterior photos were at dusk in the dead of winter and failed to capture the contrast. I have since remedied this predicament by including much brighter, summer photos, like this one…
…turned into this.
Gorgeous, isn’t it? The updated article now features this odd winter/summer juxtaposition, but I still think it’s an improvement in demonstrating the mall’s contrast with its immediate surroundings. Here it is in full.
Furthermore, I also recently was able to get an article on the Ledyard Block in Grand Rapids published in Huffington Post. One of the HuffPost readers provided me with a nice, sunshiney alternative view of the Ledyard Building, straight from his office window, which I have integrated into the version of the article featured here on American Dirt. Thanks to Timothy Wolfer for his contribution, seen below:
About 95% of the time, I am a visitor in the locations that I choose to blog, so getting the optimal weather conditions for the photographs is a rarity. Since this is not fundamental a photography blog, this isn’t generally a big deal, but I’d certainly prefer a quality image over a weak one…the photos have always served as the evidence to support the argument, and they always will. Thanks as always for reading; and, as always, comments are welcome.
