Sorry about the lack of posts…
I started Famous Ankles in July 2007 as a way to communicate with family and friends and to detail what I kept seeing in NYC. Then, in August 2007 I started to post daily and after a while…well, it got to be a habit. Unfortunately, I kept seeing mileposts along the way. Two months of daily posts, three, four… Eventually, I started thinking about hitting the one year mark of daily posts. And I made it. However, the last three or four months of the run were pretty wearing on me and I’ve decided to take a bit of a break.
I will start posting again soon. I’ve been trying to think of ways to make it a little more fresh and interesting. So far, the ideas just aren’t working out. Strangely enough, I do have materials for posts as I still take some pictures but it just seems like variations on posts that I’ve done before. I could just post the pictures, but I really hate putting in a picture without context. A picture without a story is just somebody else’s picture. It can be interesting, it can be terrific; but I don’t think my photographic skills are able to carry the post unaided. Besides, I like to have the context and the story. I just want to make it interesting for me to detail what I’m seeing and hopefully convey that joy to my readers.
So, in the meantime feel free to enjoy the blog. I purposely fashioned it so that almost any part can be read without worrying too much whether it is outdated. The events I’ve covered like parades are actually just moments captured and preserved. As they should be, at least in my opinion.
I’ll post on occasion.
