Mostly Everything

We are Contemporary Historians

Are photos your deceit or your truth?

In the last iBlog 3 summit, Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet talked about how his photoblog chronicles the Philippines in circa 2000, with a focus on the beautiful places to explore. Last night I guested with Lourd, Gang, Rem, Grace and Tammy to talk about photography on air.

It was discussed also, rather briefly, how photography and blogging become tools to chronicle history in this decade. Perhaps, in about a hundred years, our descendants will look back at our blogs – read our entries and look at our photos – and define for themselves the state of the nation during that circa using blogs as a microcosm of our country’s dreams and impediments during that time.

I guess by reassessing the content of our blogs with this “contemporary historian” mindset, it will help us further develop and understand our niches, passions and expertise. Above is a shot of the pondering Lourd de Veyra. More photos and show notes on the link above to Rock Ed Radio.
