Requests and Longer Series

I received a comment asking if I would do any requests. I hadn't really thought about requests, but I'm usually willing to try most anything (well, not anything). So, if you have a request, send me an email. I can't promise much more other than that I'll try.

I've also started working on a few longer series. I've got a bunch of images that don't really lend themselves to short captions or seem to be telling longer stories. So I've started playing around to see what I can do. Right now, I'm a bit frustrated, at least in terms of putting the pieces together. But hopefully soon, I'll have some longer caption stories to share.

I Promised Myself...

...that I wasn't going to be one of those people who creates captions or writes stories and then begs for feedback. But now that I've been at this for a while I've begun to understand why other bloggers and caption creators get frustrated by the lack of feedback.

At the end of the day, I make these captions primarily for myself. I enjoy the creative release I find in choosing the right image for a particular idea or thinking up an idea to match a particular photo.

But it would be nice to know if people like what I'm doing, which captions are particularly good (or bad), and which themes seem to strike a chord, and so forth.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I understand why people don't leave comments. I read other TG blogs for a long time and only left a tiny handful of anonymous comments. So I do get it. But I'd still enjoy hearing from people.

Update: Moments after publishing this post, I noticed that my comments setting prohibited anonymous comments. My bad. I really thought that I'd set comments to anyone, but apparently either I goofed or the setting didn't stick. Hopefully the ability to leave anonymous comments (though I'd love to get identifiable comments, too...) will prompt a veritable tidal wave of comments.

Captions Without Images and Images Without Captions

So I'm having a bit of trouble right now. I've got a whole bunch of caption ideas bouncing around in my head, but I can't find the right images to support those captions. And I've got tons of fun images, but I'm having a hard time finding the captions to go with them. Hopefully, I'll be able to put image to caption and caption to image this weekend...

I'm Back...!

Back from vacation and feeling (somewhat) refreshed. I need to unpack and see what I've missed over the last week and then I'll be back to captioning!
