Gallery coming soon. For now, there's Instagram.
I advocate at-least-one-photo-a-day, partly because it teaches us to notice our surroundings more, partly for the huge boost to memory, partly because looking back on the record of normal day to day life is its own kind of beautiful. Your own aesthetic tastes are a kind of self discovery, and one of the best ways to exercise this self discovery is through photography. It compels you to ponder what is meaningful and beautiful in your surroundings. Once you know this, you can make them more beautiful. I share photos because I want to make people feel wonder and emotions that are difficult to put into words but feel very right to "show." If you see and capture them you can show that they exist as part of the landscape, that emotions surround us, they are not just internal.
Photos, like paintings, help you see the moods that inhabit the world.
For micro-blogging I use my Twitter a lot lately.
For longer writing I have been using Medium.
Recently written: Are We Still Thinking? We lived in a state of dialogue for millennia, almost all knowledge was two-way communication. Even with books, everyS person talked to more people, sometimes in a single day, than they had ever read. Then between the printing press and radio we switched to one-way communication as the norm, and now it's the opposite. The consequences of this are not fully appreciated.
What is good: Sacred things, making things, photography, kalopsía.
I can be found on Twitter. I can be contacted by driving around new hampshire and shouting my name or else simonsarris at gmail works too.
Simeville, which you behold, is based on a 1550's painting by Sebastian Münster of Speyer, Germany. We find great consolation in landscape, don't we? And architecture, good or bad, twists and turns our moods.
In labouring to be concise, I become obscure.
