All my best intentions / by Jana Uyeda

Truly, I had all the best intentions when I first opened my computer and began organizing my thoughts this afternoon. I knew there were a few online discussions I wanted to consider, some articles I wished to respond to and a few updates from previous posts on my blog that I wanted to make.

A few days ago there was some debate about Time Magazine using an Instagram photo from Hurricane Sandy for it's cover image.

There was also this article about the state of Kodak Films and another post on the future of film in an overwhelmingly digital age.

I also scanned in a few more rolls from my trip to the Hoh Rainforest and wanted to write a few lines on pinhole photography. Perhaps to include a discussion on why my old school analog and new school Instagram photography complement each other after reading this blog post from Kenneth Jarecke.

If you've read any of the articles above and have some thoughts, I'd love to hear from you.

However, despite all my best intentions to scribble a few lines in response, I cannot and will not tear my eyes from MSNBC and the Huffington Post real time news feeds on the US and Washington state elections. There's a lot at stake at the national, state and neighborhood level.  I'm worried, I'm excited, and I'm full of adrenaline watching the news roll in.

I hope to write something about photography tomorrow. Tonight, let's enjoy the race. Cheers!
