100th Post: The Wildness Project Thus Far
In honor of the 100th post on this blog (wonder if WordPress will have an extra special attaboy), here’s an attempt at putting my favorite “wildness” photos into a coherent set. Most of these have appeared before in this blog, but there are a few new ones. I was inspired to do this while messing around with the new book module in Lightroom 4, which lets you lay out a Blurb book. In addition to choosing the photos and arranging them in a sequence, I enjoyed matching them in pairs that would appear on facing pages (the first photo is alone because it would face the back of the cover). It took a little messing around with the WordPress HTML, but I’ve more or less replicated that look here. I hope you enjoy it. (You can click the photos to see them a little bigger.)
I’d also love feedback. Are there any photos that don’t belong together or shouldn’t be here at all? How about the overall sequence? Does the shift from natural scenes to more human-influenced ones work, or is it too much of a downer?
