Depictions by the rule of thirds,
Descriptions mostly free style words

 For quite a long time I had two blogs – one for the camera and one for the pen. Each clamoured for attention and the split never felt quite right so I’ve resolved the quandary here by joining forces and creating PoetryPix.

I’ve made a simple space to…stake a claim as a poet… by planting this little flag on the World Wide Web

  • Poetry ~ I always hesitate to call my writing such but the amateur is not always amateurish and I take my efforts seriously enough. Sometimes I also write prose but not at any great length. I’m no storyteller.
  • Pix ~ The aim of my photography now is based on the old adage ‘less is more’ as how else can one aim for quality over quantity! Even so, I remain an amateur

an amateur photographer is one who is in love with taking pictures, a free soul who can photograph what he likes and who likes what he photographs. — 

Erwin Blumenfeld

N.B: I’m particular about correct spelling and grammar but have deliberately used the mis-spelling of ‘pics’ to denote the use of digital cameras (see here). By definition then my photos are pixels and though I do aim for the purer side of captures, also use post camera Adobe software Those photos which do not quite make the grade are often still good enough to be ‘artistically’ edited and used to illustrate others’ poems in PhoArtry

 This is an ad free blog as I want this virtual space to be devoid of third party bullying buying or selling. 

feedback is food for thought....
