Keep up with the addict

Photographic Friday

So, I’ve been thinking that it would be nice to have some regular features here on marginalia of a habitual addict.  By the term “regular feature”, I mean weekly themed posts, kind of like a newspaper column.  For example, my Soundtrack for Sunday posts would fit into this category.  (By the way, I promise to get back to posting these this Sunday!!)  Of course, these regular features would have to be related in some fashion to my addictions.  Consequently, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with ideas for a set of these features.  I’m thinking that a steady three or four would be a nice goal to shoot for…

Well, as you may be able to tell from the title of the post, my newest idea is: Photographic Friday.  Clearly, the idea behind this would be to focus on photography.  More specifically, I want to showcase and share with you photographs from photographers – professional or otherwise -  that I enjoy.  How exactly will I do this?  I’m glad that you asked.  Here is how I’m envisioning Photographic Friday will operate:

I will start by generating a random word using Coyote Cult’s Random Word Generator to use as a theme for each post.  I will include this random word in the heading of the post and, in the body of the post, will provide its definition from Merriam-Webster Online.  I will then use this word to perform a search of Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike licensed photos on Flickr.  I will then pick my favorite of the bunch and share it with you in the post.

That’s it.  Nothing fancy.  Just photography that I enjoy being shared with you.

Oh!  As the name Photographic Friday suggests, I’ll post these every Friday.  The first will be posted this Friday, May 15, 2009.  As a teaser, this week’s word is scoot
