Retrospective one (March 2012)

The month of April will soon be upon us and I thought this would be a good time to experiment with something new. Given the way in which blogs are presented, I am convinced that posts positioned more than several scrolls behind the most recent are doomed to languish and to be forgotten. Because I believe there is value in looking at contributions made days, weeks, and even months ago I have decided to post, on or about the first of every month, a gallery of photos posted during the previous month of a year ago. This trial balloon will therefore consider work of the month of March, 2012. Perhaps it will be interesting to scroll through the images presented this past March and to compare them to those presented last March. The gallery presents last year’s posts in chronological order. Hovering over each will reveal its title. Clicking one will take you to a carousel view and you can either continue to move through the collection or click the links to read each post in its original form. Honest observations are always most welcome.

  1. I think that this is a GREAT idea! Especially for followers, who didn’t become followers, until recently. It allows us to catch up on all kinds of wonderful images! Loved the Argus saga and also the story of the almost triplets!

  2. It’s been said before but … inspired idea! You should offer some of these as desktop wallpapers. Especially that baby goat. There is nothing in the world as sweet and goofy and innocent as a baby goat face. I miss them.

  3. This is beautiful and captivating. I could sit down and look at the photos all day, go to the links for the posts … very nice job, beautiful composition.

  4. Beautiful gallery of prints. One picture is prettier than another. Keep it up. Your public awaits.

  5. I love this idea! Not only is it a good chance to see things we might have missed round 1, but it’s neat to see how your photography interests have evolved in a whole year 🙂 I would venture to say you’ve clearly been developing your more artistic side very nicely!

  6. I really like this idea and format! I believe blogging is about experimenting with content, structure, layout – including your own interaction with your (older) content and letting your readers participate in this adventure. On the one hand we probably tend to repeat ourselves anyway – so why not present existing images or articles again that are still “valid” and/or put old content into a new context. On the other hand we might want to comment or complement old content. I have been running some technically non-blog, but actually pseudo-blog sites for more than 10 years – I am surprised by both “timeless stuff” as well as articles I cannot identify with any more. In the latter case I have experimented with commenting on my old articles in weird ways – e.g. writing ironic English articles about my older German articles (after I had started dreading the rigid bilingual structure I had invented).
