About Echo

Wonderful! I really like the subject matter, Jo, intimate and beautiful and a bit old world, and the amazing things you've done with light. The compositions are interesting - the oblique angles are refreshing and unexpected. Somehow they make things not quite comfortable and it gives the works an edgy quality - it makes me aware that they are compositions and constructions and then that raises questions about why these objects, that angle, that light etc. The play with focus is interesting too. I find it a bit unnerving - I've read things about how babies see their mothers' faces out of focus - maybe it reminds the viewer of a kind of merged identity with others and things....unsettling secure identity etc...

Blog tips - I'm not having any trouble now, but I don't know if i have any useful tips. I just hit on the blogger icon in the top left corner and go in and press "create post" and write and load away (press the pic icon to load pics). Pics have to be small files - around 5 or 600 kb -but I'm sure you already know all this. I wrote a "how to" page so i'll see if i can add it so you can access it by pressing the small piece of writing that says "1 comments" for your further info.
