I just wanted to share that for Christmas, Santa gave me an Instagram account with a name I like which had not been taken by someone else, to help me revive and modernize my passion for digital photography! The account name is PIXELCOLLAGE if you were interested in checking it out or following. Pixel collage, that would be a collage of pixels, kind of like a digital photograph. Get it?
I’ve shared my photography here in the past. However, I’ve been doing lots of other things and haven’t shared much of what little got done for photography in the past few years. I’ll share the occasional photo or sets here in the future, but most will be just left to be on Instagram.
So what will be different with my photography going forward for modernization and being revived?
I have just started to the haiku collection I wrote mostly in March 2015, during my life changing return to Viet Nam, 35 years after fleeing as a child refugee. It is called Tales of an Expat Tourist.
This is the backgrounder to the collection on my poetry blog. It has a link to the first of 62 haiku in the collection, with notes to give more information on its subject matter, as will be done with all subsequent haiku in the collection.
If you like poetry, very personal travelogue style writings, Viet Nam and/or Vietnamese culture, I hope you will give it a read. Thank you.
This past winter, I entered the CBC Literary Awards competition for Creative Nonfiction. In short, it’s a contest for style of how you tell a real story in 1500 words or less. The Long List was recently announced and I wasn’t on it, which meant I can now share it here with you! Entries published anywhere until now would have been disqualified from the competition.
This event had an impact on something in my near future at the time of writing, on which I contemplated and which has since passed. In a few days, I will post the follow-up to my contemplation at the story’s end.
I hope you’ll like it and thanks for reading.🙂
