The flowers are starting to come out. It’s going to be harder to stop walking around in the mornings. This is at 821 Cafe which has had the skeleton on the window since at least Halloween but the internal skull image is new. They rotate a lot of local artists’ work through there. I liked the parallel skulls. I like the patterns of trees. I’ve shot this fence before. It has some colors that I like and it has a patina of neglect that I find interesting. The condition of the book with this particular title was too good to pass up. There was quite a bit of rain this week. I liked what this rain did to the roads.

It is going to require quite a bit of different thinking. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward The kestrel as it might have been named by Marianne Moore.

I touched on this with a previous zombie pictures post. Essentially, metadata is awesome because it lets people find your stuff and it helps your stuff find its audience. Metadata is also absent more often than not because people don’t like to type in lots of tags and they especially don’t like to do it on phones. You see elements of this metadata addition becoming automatic- simple things like Instagram (or maybe IFTT) auto-tagging my images with instagram and (in my case) iPhone (like the image above). I’ve also seen auto-tagging of image filters and with exif data you get all sorts of interesting automated metadata details but they tend to be mechanical rather than social. IFTT, FeedWordPress, and others allow you to do some low level of automatic metadata association. What keeps coming back to me is that it would be relatively simple to enable people to associate calendars and specific calendar events with online media publishing workflows. This would add the socially relevant automated metadata so the audience could find the media. The end goal being audience rather than metadata.). This would work particularly well at institutions which have centralized calendars or in the case of Udell’s Elm City aggregated calendars. Take VCU’s calendar of events as an example. It has time, location, and categorical elements already. You […]
