Photoblogging Friday - 1

You've heard of Catblogging, right? The blog tradition goes back almost to the beginning of the medium. The New York Times first wrote about the phenomenon in 2004. Kevin Drum, who then published the Calpundit blog, now of Mother Jones, was most likely the first to start posting pictures of his cat Inkblot every Friday.

Well, I don't own a cat.  So what will our Friday not-to-be-taken-too-seriously feature be? Why not Photoblogging Friday?

Dean Brierly, former managing editor of Camera & Darkroom, and a photographer himself, will assist me with the photo selection. Dean writes about photography and photographers on his interview blog site Photographers Speak, and you can see more of his work on his own portfolio site.

The inaugural photo is his own, "Wrong Turn, Tokyo" -- click for enlarged view.
