There are a TON of photoblogs
on the internet, and some are pretty good.
And some are pretentious as hell, which makes me sick.
They refuse to caption or even title their photos, so
you have no earthly idea where they took it or what the hell
you're even looking at.
To them, this helps elevate their work to ART.
"I want my work to stand on it's own, without the crutch
of using words."
Well, I say that's crap, and that these "photographers"
are all ego and style with zero substance.
Just zooming way in and/or cropping out all identifiable
features doesn't make it art either, unless the composition,
subject matter, technique, and editing makes it so.
So get over yourselves, and type a few words about your
photos, you pretentious bastards!
