Introducing Dissent Decree

I'm most fortunate to have a number of talented and gifted friends. One of the best photographers I know is Michael Maurer Smith. Not only does he have the wise good sense to be married to my friend Kate, he's just too darned talented.

I posted this photo a few weeks ago -- Mike at his art reception. Those are paintings there, not photographs. Yes, the man does a lot.

And if you visit his "work site" (Beyond Appearance), you'll see he's a fine designer, too.

But Mike has recently launched a blog -- Dissent Decree. It is more of a writing and opinion blog. If you were to visit today, I'd be sure to check out his 10 steps to a good photograph, his commentary on the state of photojournalism, and his visit to Biggby coffee.

Stop by Dissent Decree when you have a chance. And check out Beyond Appearance, too!

I visited Dissent Decree and will go back when I have more time. I'm currently taking a "get to know your digital SLR camera" class and thinkj it's serendipity that you suggeswted this blog.

Hi Jeanie - I bookmarked his page after reading the photo post. Good stuff. Thanks for the introduction.

Of course I followed your links, and I was glad I did. Lots of thoughtful and interesting material to consider over there. Thanks so much!

Hi Jeannie! I am so sorry I have been so slack in blogging! How are you! I see that you have been busy.. I am loving all Portland has to offer, but my Gypsy blood is simmering! ha.I am going to do a goveaway for OWOH but haven't posted a pic yet!

I watched your links and they are great...I even listened to the music on "You tube" on the WKAR site .
And I like your friend from Canada very much...she looks very sympathical.
I will watch Mike`s blog tomorrow, when I have got the time for it...Perhaps even I will become a good photographer after reading his blog.
By the way...thank you very much for your birthday greetings....Yes, I had a wonderful day...only becoming one year older wasn`t so wonderful...*lol*

He looks like a fun sort of person. I love people with more than one thing going for them!!!

My gosh! I landed on his site and left a comment - without realizing he is a friend of yours. Talk about serendipity. I must have seen a link around somewhere, but I really don't know.

What I do know is that there was a gold mine of stimulating thought-nuggets there, and a good bit of insight into all things image -inary!
