On GetDPI, there seem to be threads which are "image" threads, containing tons of images one after another, and there seem to be "discussion" threads which contain lots of chit chat, technical stuff, etc.
I don't know whether anyone else is interested, but I maintain a photo blog where I feature a photo usually with some surrounding context or story to enhance its appreciation. I thought it might be cool to start a new kind of thread where I and others doing photo blogs could post their current featured photo along with a link to the photo blog post. That way those who just wish to see photos could get that right here on the spot, but those who enjoy reading and commenting on photo blogs could use this as a spring board to enjoy other's photo blog work.
A simple idea to make this work effectively:
- post ONE photo per message embedded here with technical info, with the subject set to reflect any title the photo blog post might have.
- in the post, add a link to that entry on the photo blog.
I hope others will find this idea worthwhile. I enjoy browsing others blogs but simply cannot subscribe to all of the great photo blogs I happen across and keep up. This will give us a way to find others' work as time and interest allows and motivates.
My first photo blog post will be a response to this one. :-)
Your comments will be appreciated!
