This is my "photoblog" or "photographic web log". My original plan was to post all the photographs I’ve taken over the years that I am most proud of, whether they’re digital or old film that will have to be scanned. There are even some poloroids, slides and stereo pairs that I hope to get up here. This photoblog was originally done using PixelPost software, but I’ve recently moved it to WordPress. I was getting spammed to death using PixelPost whereas WordPress seems to have better tools to deal with spam, and I’ve been using it for my other blogs happily for over a year now. WordPress isn’t set up specifically for photoblogs, but finally there are a few themes set up for photographs. Once I get all the old photoblog pictures moved over here, the goal will be to add one new photo and one old photo each day. Until then, the ld pictures can still be found here. Thanks for stopping by and for your interest.
If it’s not already apparently obvious, I am not a professional photographer. I’ve always enjoyed images and fooling around with cameras. And I love trying to get that “just right” image. I do tae a lot of photos for my work — I’m a beer writer — and may have been featured in magazines such as the Celebrator Beer News, Ale Street News and even the Onion. Many of these can be seem on my beer blog, the Brookston Beer Bulletin.
My real photographic passion, though, is stereo photography and especially View-Master reels. I have a couple of View-Master cameras with which I make my own 3-D reels. I’m also an avid collector of View-Master reels and I maintain a list of all the View-Master reels ever made called the Brooks View Master List.
I also used to run a Photo Scavenger Hunt that was a weekly contest of sorts, but was different from many of the other weekly photo memes. Unfortunately, I grew too busy this year to continue it. Happily, one of the participants, Jorj, has taken up the photo scavanger hunt on his on, and so now you can still play at Jorj’s Photohunt.

I also have a daughter Alice. You can read about the family exploits and see lots of casual family pictures
on our family blog, The Brookston Family Blog.
