Yes, that’s me. Just wanted to explain what’s going on here with the new “Photo Blog” category you see above under the post header. I’m a creature of habit. Most of the time, I “save” photos for essays, upload them to my Smugmug gallery, or spontaneously post them on Twitter. So if your only contact with my writing or artwork is this website, you miss most of my photos if I’m not writing essays. Site traffic also falls off, fans get pissed, and I feel bad. So from here on out, I’ll fill in the gaps once in a while.
Here’s what I recommend:
• Subscribe to JHFARR.COM, of course, from the form at the bottom of any page. You’ll receive an email reminder whenever I update the site.
• If you’re mostly here for the photos, you really ought to visit my Smugmug site on a regular basis. (You can even buy them there.)
• Besides those, you really need to sign up for my GODDAMN BUFFALO (no, really) newsletter at Substack. What I’m really doing is cross-posting most new writing there and here. But when you subscribe there, you’ll get an email with the entire post and photos formatted perfectly for mobile devices, so you don’t even have to visit the website. In addition, there will be Substack posts that don’t lend themselves to cross-posting here, so that’s where you want to be sure you don’t miss anything.
It also has a completely different tone. The UI (user interface) lends itself to that and I’m all for it. Right now I’m republishing a number of selected Top Posts from here, though with additional photos, as well as new material. By now this is probably all clear as mud, so just visit the “What Is GODDAMN BUFFALO?” page to learn more.
Carry on and good luck.
