In the Projects
Photography and writing. Don’t be scared.
Years ago, I found this really cool website called PHREAD. I believe PHREAD is dead – the original PHREAD anyway. It was a collection of photography and writing… writing worth reading. I loved the word mashup and wanted to rename the blog I had at the time to PHWRITE. I bought the domain name, designed cards and had them printed … some of you know this drill.
Although no one struggles with photography, or philosophy, or Philadelphia, Phwrite rendered people mute, elicited bad guesses.
“P-H- Write” everyone spelled out.
Even in the local Mexican restaurant. I showed the waiter and asked him how he read the title. “Pey, Achey …” he began after a moment of intense scrutiny.
“Okay, all right.” I took the cards off the table. But the name never left my mind. Nor, the beautiful (if only to me) wordplay. PHWRITE. Fright. When you have to start explaining ….
Anyway, that’s what you’ll find here. Photography and Writing. Phwrite … in the Projects.
Don’t be scared.
