A while ago I had another photoblog, which for various reasons I’ve left to go fallow. Those of you who knew of it might remember this photo and entry:
…so from October through June, we get our share of rainfall (we get your share, too, some weeks), which causes the earthworms to abandon their villages and take to the roads in order to avoid death and destruction. That they follow this plan of action every single time and it never ever works is proof that we still share some DNA…
Several years ago, this ritual inspired in me a series — Exodus of the Worms — although I had not really been inspired enough to actually go outside to begin shooting this series. C’mon, who wants to lie face down on a wet road first thing in the morning just to take pictures of worms?
Well, o.k.: Me. Finally.

So why did I use Exodus of the Worms and this odd little image as the introductory offering on my new photoblog? I dunno. Just seemed appropriate.
Some of you from the old blog might find the first few posts a little deja vu-y, because I’ma be posting some of those older shots until I get my more recent stuff organized. (Well, all right, maybe more than a few posts; maybe more like a few weeks of deja vu-yness). For you newcomers, welcome! And I promise the pictures get better.
