For several years now I’ve been following a blog called “Someone Once Told Me.” I found it through a very cool site called StumbleUpon (which I would also encourage you all to check out) and have been checking on it regularly ever since. Here’s a little bit of what the creator has to say about his captivating blog:
“We are all shaped by the things that someone once told us. The words we hear impact on us, whether we want them to or not, and it’s undeniable that they have a power.
Someone Once Told Me is essentially a means for me to practise my photography and to give me something to do on my days off as I wander around London, which always feels full of possibilities.
But SOTM is also an attempt to gather and chronicle some of the things that people have heard in their lives, the messages and expressions that have stuck in people’s head, for reasons both obvious and odd…”
Give it a look and let us know what you think in the comment section. It’s a wonderful example of how blog photography can be used in ways that go beyond basic shots, creating interactivity as well as an exploration of the human condition.
