No, I’m not a Monkee fan gone rogue but the song Pleasant Valley Sunday did become an ear worm recently while I was playing with some photos. (BTW, did you know Carol King actually wrote that song?) I considered it a sign, as I’d been contemplating a new photo blog, so it was a natural for the title. (Update: I decided to abbreviate the blog name for copyright reasons.)
I’ve been blogging since 2005. First on Blogger for two years, then moving here to WordPress. My blog, Zouxzoux, where I post poetry, prose, photography, and other ephemera has been online since 2007. Links to my published work is here, if you’re interested. This blog will be my place to post photos from my everyday life. I’m very interested in minimalism and mindfulness so that will be the primary focus for my photography on PVS.
At least, that’s the plan. I hope you’ll join me. If you have a blog with a similar aesthetic, please leave a link so I can visit.
