This is my one thousandth post; the first was a picture of Southwark Bridge on 18th October 2010. Each post has at least one photograph, some several, so well over a thousand pictures in total (including some not by me). Early posts consisted of a photograph and a caption, later the caption has expanded into a paragraph or two and there are some extended articles, overall around 70,000 words. Many pictures stand alone; others have been used to develop projects on travel, mannequins, the Ruckenfigur, urban ephemera and so on. Not having set up the analytics, I’ve no idea how many people view the blog, but pictures appear occasionally on Google Images; there are 201 logged comments. The blog continues to be loosely a visual diary; and the original aim, to show ‘Things seen; things that interest me; snaps of encounters’, remains true.
