Most of you know this blog as just that, a blog. However, recently during a chat with a colleague, he said to me that I should reduce my output on social websites to just broadcasts telling everyone that I have something new on my website. However, at the time the only website I had, was this blog and not an actual static site at all. So with a bit of research and help from WordPress technical support I reinvented devtank as a static site with a blog attached as opposed to what it was; a blog with an attached static page or two.
Most of you who tune in to what I blog get it through a RSS reader and probably never really make it to the original blog itself, so I’m urging you to try it out and let me know what you think. It’s still a work in progress and I’m still learning the WordPress.com way of doing things.
I’ve added a few pages and a few sub-pages too to encompass areas of my creative output that have not had a home either on social sites or online at all.
The Multimedia page now has a sub-page Audio which gives a little bit of my location audio and field recording background and from there a sub page dedicated to my long running project Autogenous Radio: In Conversation which is a series of recorded conversations from people I have mat at one time or another whom I find interesting or who have an opinion or a story to tell.
Ok now, I want to see how polls work and if anyone actually will engage..

I think that India brings one closer to ones priorities, because ones priorities become prioritized.
You simply must achieve the things you need to achieve in order to actually survive.
In the west we put off so much of our priorities because we actually set up the system of our existence to facilitate that.
Paul Thereux said somewhere that convenience is the enemy of something that I can’t remember now. If he didn’t say that then I did.
Im fascinated with youth and I got that from a combination of living in USA where everything is based around the unhealthy obsession of youth and the preservation of it at seemingly any social cost. The age from about 17 to about 30 are interesting times for me to document, because it was a time of great stress and confusion for me and when I look back on it now, with the benefit of hindsight, I can see how others confront their identities and try to fit in to a scene or niche in order to survive the perceived social balance that you think you need to adhere to in order to be accepted.
This particular image attracts me primarily because of the striking nature of light, and then the unveiling of an intricate social anomaly being revealed behind the wall of smoke. This wonderful non verbal communication/interaction which involves the photographer who in turn passes that on to you the viewer and ultimately you are part of the process of non verbal interactivity communication.
