Woo Hoo! Site is Up and Running Normally Again

As many of you know, Leicaphilia has been operating at reduced capacity for a few months. Part of the reduced capacity was me, for reasons I’ve noted elsewhere, the other was some sort of hack that corrupted file links. As of today, all links should be back up and the comments section working.

I should be back to posting on a semi-regular basis in the next few days. In the interim, while you’re breathlessly waiting for my discussion of Martin Heidegger and his concept of “being” and how it relates to photography, take a look at http://blog.insolublepancake.org/, Henry Joy McCracken’s excellent blog where there’s a wealth of good things to read and view. Henry is a loyal Leicaphilia reader and I’ve published some of his thoughts before. He’s also an Astrophysicist in Paris, so he’s smarter than me or you, although meeting him you’d never know he’s so important – just a nice, average guy who loves film Leicas. Lot’s of good stuff there.

    I’m happy to hear the site is back, you’re back to writing on a regular basis. How’s your graduate degree coming along? Or do you start in Fall?

      Thanks Howard. I start this Fall. I’m preparing by reading a lot of Heidegger and Habermas, which, if you’ve ever read them, you’ll know can be eye-wateringly incoherent, enough so to make me want to give up before I’ve started. Thank god for brilliant and well-written thinkers like Emerson, Thoreau and Fuller, whom I’m also reading. They make it not only bearable but worthwhile.

    Thank goodness you got the gremlins banished!

    From a totally selfish point of view, ‘philia gives me somether better to chew upon during lunchtime than is sometimes served up by the chefs! Welcome back to the world of cameras, pictures, opinions and assorted nutters. Missed your presence, as did others who seldom, if ever, post here. It doesn’t mean that you don’t have a far wider readership than some might think.

    Dear Tim, thank you for the kind words. Glad to know that everything is back in it’s rightful place. You set the bar very high here however, it will take me a good few books before I get to the crowd-pleasing heights of Schopenhauer. And that next blog post about Heidegger– can’t wait for it.

      You are welcome, Henry. The articles you’ve recently published on Atget are great stuff. I’ve always thought Atget’s work remarkable in a simple yet profound way, and you’ve done a great job pointing that out.
