The worth of blogs / by Hilary Hann

It's a question I've asked myself on many occasions.  My occasional blogs are not educational, they aren't supposed to be.  They aren't revolutionary as it isn't my style.  They really are amblings through my thoughts at the time and they are posted so seldomly because one's thoughts really aren't as interesting as we might think at the time.


I'm not sure that I see the worth of my own blog and so this may be the last for a long, long time.  The only reason I'm posting this one is so that I have a reference point some time in the future, when I've clarified to my own satisfaction the real purpose behind my photography, and can come back and read it and say "yes, I've gone where I intended to go" or even more likely "ah, I didn't get it, but where I've gone is where I'm meant to be".


And so I'll leave my blog with this quote from Emmet Gowin

… And, finally, this is what I need to say to you. There are things in your life that only you will see, stories that only you will hear. If you don’t tell them or write them down, if you don’t make the picture, these things will not be seen, these things will not be heard. - Emmet Gowin
