I haven't been around because I've been pondering actually going forward with this blog or shuttering it entirely, as I mentioned in this post. The conclusion, which seems like the most logical thing the more I think about it, is to continue but more in the form of a photoblog so that written posts will not necessarily be a rule of thumb, and to expand to other topics of interest to me, but first things first. I will no longer include recipes when I do write posts to accompany photographs of food, unless I can't find a similar recipe anywhere else on the web; I apologize if this is distressing to you but I'm sure your relationship with Google search will benefit from this arrangement. I'm arranging for the look of the blog to be overhauled to accommodate all these changes.
Thank you for joining me in any capacity over the last three years and I hope you continue to accompany me on forthcoming adventures.
As many of you already know, I've finally, after thinking I probably should and then getting a sudden impulse to finally do it, uploaded some of my best pictures to a photography portfolio. I'm without my film cameras or boxes upon boxes of negatives, good and bad, which are all sitting in storage half the world away, but there was enough digital work available and a few ancient scans of some film pictures to cobble something together. So after weeks of organizing, sorting, choosing, collaging, trashing, re-collaging, organizing into categories, queueing in the proper order, requeueing again and again, etc... here it is: My Photography Portfolio.
You can also find it in my sidebar in case you don't want to click on the link above now and want to peruse it later.
And finally, thank you to Olive Magazine which is one of the BBC's food magazines here in the UK for mentioning Saffron & Blueberry in its August issue in the "Websites and blogs that inspire us" section. I'm honored and thrilled to be included alongside two star bloggers, Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites and Y of Lemonpi who has been mentioned here before as being a partner in [sweet] crime.
