01 January 2008
We are truly glad to receive so many excellent pictures in our new projects. This is just the first day of 365 and we already have an impressive collection. Keep them coming! In order to "organize" this flow a bit, we have set up a list called "All photographers in F 08 projects." We will list your names there and link to the post where your picture is found. If you send more pictures over the year, they will be listed as well after your name.
You are free to put any title you want to your picture. The title will be displayed below the photo. If we have failed so far in putting a correct title, please send an email to let us know.
You are welcome to send series as well. If you want them published in a certain sequence, let us know. If you send several pictures, we may decide to publish them on different occasions.
Do you want us to link to your web site or blog? Please tell us. We will not do it otherwise. Many thanks!

Cudgel (in memoriam to J.P.)
... when contriving methods of killing
various techniques are considered
yet one always comes back to the simplest
(to the dismay of techocrats
convinced only their goddesses exist)
a cudgel will do-
a gnarled branch
potential armoury for instruments of torture and murder
and we struggle so to preserve the forests
while on the face of this earth
but on tree remains
people will die by the wooden cudgel
jabbed under the nail
of the earth
from The Selected Poetry of Ryszard Kapuściński: I Wrote Stone.
We love to hear from you, dear reader of the F Blog. However the Blogger tool is far from perfect in all aspects. To leave a comment on somebody´s picture is easy, but still there is some confusion. The fastest way to comment is to chose Name/URL (you don´t have to fill in URL) and fill in your real name or nickname. If you know about OpenID or the Google/Blogger option you may of course use them as well. Welcome to participate!
You will find a variety of projects, featured subjects or whatever you may call it on The F Blog. Please don´t hesitate to send photos for our consideration!
There is no guarantee in publishing all pictures we receive. However don´t hesitate to give it a try. We are there for photography.
