Why bother?

All these photos were taken on a day in London when I had drunk WAY too much coffee.

Anyway.. I now basically seem to have 4 websites.
A tad excessive one might think?
Yeah pretty much.
But, there is method in my madness.
The main Austin Tanney website is my "online portfolio. This gets updated very rarely.
My DeviantArt site is slightly more regularly updated, with a large proportion of these eventually making their way onto AustinTanney.com

One think I have wanted to do though, is to have somewhere to put "snapshots".
The photos that make their way onto the other sites, these are shots that I have spent time making. These are often carefully set up and have always had some degree of processing in photoshop, some to a greater degree than others obviously, but all have been worked on.

The aim of the flickr site is to give me somewhere to put quick shots like this one so they can be put here in the blog. Photos that have been nowhere near photoshop, shapshots. Either my own, or those of friends, as in the post below.

One thing that fascinates me is the verb used for photography,
some say they make photos
some say they take photos
I like both.
The photos on AustinTanney.com or my Deviantart site have been made
The ones on here have been taken
;)

None of this of course really justifies me inflicting this much crap on the world. Saying that though, its not like i am making the gigantic cesspool that is the internet any worse.
