I’m not sure if you even remember me, but we used to be friends on Flickr like a million years ago. I logged back on to the site today after a years-long hiatus, and saw that you were one of my contacts. I loved your photography! Do you still shoot? I’m currently working as a freelance writer in Memphis, but am getting ready to accept a full time job as an arts and culture reporter in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Prior to that, I did a lot of music writing for The Washington Post, and a few other places, as well as radio. I checked your site, you’ve done some great work yourself!
Either way, hope you’re doing well.
Yeah! You’re from Alabama. We were even FB friends at one point. I saw an old comment from you a few weeks ago when I got bored and started looking at past posts. I’m glad to see you’ve been busy and doing well for yourself. I need to get like you. I still shoot sometimes, but I can always do more. I need to get more of my photography work on here. I have a Tumblr account that isn’t too active, but I’ll change that soon.
