It's All in the Name

Regular followers of my blog -- all two or three of you -- may have noticed I changed its name.

When I first started this blog, I thought Ashrunner's Rants would be a good way to describe what I would do with words here. However, every time I got to ranting about something, and yes, I do get to ranting once in a while, I ended deleting the post because I really didn't want to piss anyone off.

Since I have mostly talked about things I have done in my past, and passed on some of the images I see in my everyday world, I decided a new name was in order.

Hence, Ashrunner's World.

My world is a wonderful world. I have the greatest friend I could have asked for with me in it, I have Mother Nature following me around, showing me just how gorgeous she is and I have my critters.

And my past! I could not have asked for a better life to have lived. I just hope the future continues to be as least for me. 8v)

So with the change of name, I'm going to change the focus. These days, one of the most important things in my life, is my photography. will soon become, if it hasn't already, a photoblog. And no...there aren't enough photoblogs on the net.

Each and every image taken is but a momentary slice of time which will never be duplicated. Well, maybe a still-life could duplicate a previous moment, but I'm talking real world imaging. It is almost impossible for me to not want to see the various time slices from around the world. And I will be proudly showing my time slices at the same time.

But along with the images I take, I plan to talk about the shot. What I did to get it, what I did in post processing after transferring the image to my computer and finally, a little about what is seen in the photo.

You see, to me, something like a photoblog should not only be entertaining, but also educational. I want anyone who reads my blog to move on knowing they learned something...or that I was able to add to their knowledge of something.

I promise I will provide factual information. And if I am incorrect on something, more than one research source is also wrong.

So...stop by now and then...look at what I offer and enjoy your stay. Check out my past posts and get to know me. And hopefully, you'll learn something at the same time.

I understand the rant posting. I'll start to go off on something only to delete it before I post. I, like you, like to have the focus to be my photography - at least on my photoblog. I don't always give knowledge of the subject but I do usually give some information whether it be something new about me or something else. I look forward to what you have to share with us in the future.
