When I first started blogging, in February 2014, I had little if any interest in the art of photography. Fast forward a few months later and I found myself participating in the WordPress Weekly Photography challenge and my interest in photography was born.
39 Weeks: 39 Blogs Everyone Should Follow in 2017 is a new feature here on Hugh’s Views and News, and this week I’d like to introduce you to Ruth, a keen photographer and somebody who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Bloggers Bash in June 2016.
Ruth blogs at Image & Word. Her ‘about me’ page can be found here. However, her blog isn’t all about photography. She also writes poetry and the occasional blog post in response to the WordPress daily prompt. On her blog, Ruth says –
“Image & Word may not sound very exciting but it’s exactly what you’ll find here; images made by me (unless otherwise stated) and words written by me (ditto).
As far as I’m concerned both Ruth’s photography and words are up there at the top of the creative ladder.
Take a look at the list of tags down the side of her blog and you’ll see a wide range of subjects Ruth writes about and takes photos of. Amongst my favourites are her photos of London (where Ruth currently lives), her seasonal photos where she combines a great photo with words (click here for one of my favourites), and what I class as the far side of her photography (such as this post), which you can’t help but smile about when you read the words and see the photos, given the subject she has chosen to showcase.
Ruth may come over as a shy person, but her photography and writing all shine brightly once you follow her blog and start getting to know the person behind Image & Word.
So, the second of my 39 blogs to follow is Ruth, at Image & Word. Head on over and introduce yourself to Ruth by clicking here. Then go and check out her outstanding photography and read some her posts before clicking that follow button.
