stored their work in "shoebox" museums, tucked away under
a bed or wedged into the corner of a closet where they lay out of sight
and unrecognized. Then came the Internet andp...

“Quotation, n: The act of repeating erroneously the words of another.”—Ambrose Bierce

The second question readers ask when they meet me (the first is how to pronounce my name) is where do I get the quotations that kick off this column? I collect them from various sources, including reader submissions, and have an affinity for the sarcastic and witty, which is why writers...

“The gift of real love is having someone who’ll go the distance with you. Someone who, when the wedding day limo breaks down, is willing to share a seat on the bus.”—Oprah Winfrey

The first wedding I remember attending was my Aunt Rose’s when I was just a cute (I know, it’s hard to imagine) 7-year-old who got drafted into being ring bearer. A few...

In January I featured the work of Thomas Lee (www.thomasleephoto.com) in this column and while researching for this month, I came across the outstanding work of Ralph Lee. This coincidence got me to thinking: why not have an entire Web Profiles featuring photographers named “Lee,” a surname derived from Old English leah or meadow. The most interesting part of my search was discovering that these photographers are a diverse lot, stylistically and geographically, even though they all have the same surname. I’ve introduced them here in alphabetical order with Jeff Lee last as the custom for “Blog-of-the-Month.”

Many people’s New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and since, as of this writing, I’ve lost 53 lbs, that’s low on my list of possibilities. Last year in this column I announced a resolution to make a new photograph every day and post in a gallery called “2011 Photo of the Day” (http://farace.smugmug.com). If you visit it, you’ll see that I’ve only partially succeeded. The project turned out to be much harder than I expected and only heightened my appreciation of some of the Picture-a-Day blogs and websites featured in Web Profiles during 2011. Instead, my 2012 New Year’s resolution is to update all of my websites and blogs and I’m well on my way, including a long-overdue update to www.joefarace.com. In the meantime, you can draw some inspiration from the websites and blogs that are featured to kick off the New Year.
