An update on how to listen to my podcast Photowalking with Colin

The first few episodes of my new photography podcast have been a learning experience for me. How should I record, edit, distribute these episodes? With each episode I’ve been able to improve that process and make some decisions along the way.

Me, on location

While I’m hoping to continue to improve the audio quality, the speed at which I can create these episodes, and how the audience consumes both the audio and the photos I make during each episode – I think I’ve settled in on how to publish these episodes. So today, I’ve made those adjustments to my site.

I’ve drawn inspiration from many sources including James Bell, @Miraz on Micro.blog, Joe Greer and others.

I went back through each episode and added the audio files to each post and moved them into their own category. This way people can listen to the audio right on the page with the photos. I have no doubt that this will render my Anchor* analytics useless but I don’t care. I’d much prefer people have a better listening experience.

So, in addition to subscribing to the podcast on just about any service or app of your choice, you can also just subscribe to this blog and be delivered each episode with the photos into your RSS reader. Or, come directly to each page as I link to them from Twitter or something and listen to the episode and view the photos at the same time.

* Anchor is the app I use to create and distribute the podcast. They collate all of the analytics together for me. Which is nice, but I don’t really care about analytics.

Animating Seljalandsfoss in Iceland

The above animation, created with Pixaloop on Android, is from a photo by Eliza while we were in Iceland. That’s me in the bottom right, shooting my own images of Seljalandsfoss.

Eliza captured this photo of me on our hike last week. I think it is a good representation of what I look like on hikes.

An original iPhone shot – November 2009

The short story behind this photo that I’ve recently stumbled across is that Eliza and I were on a cruise in late-2009. I took my iPhone and she was still lugging around her DSLR. We both snapped a photo at the same time. But, I had never thought to mash them together like this until one day, recently, I was looking through some photos and saw the two of them nearly side-by-side.

The quality of the image from the original iPhone brings a smile to my face. Like looking back at old web sites and projects I made 10 years ago.

The iPhone turns 9

Nine years ago today Eliza, John Gruber, Rob Sandie, Matt Regula and I were standing in line for the original iPhone. Here are a few photos:

It was quite a day. Looking back on it now, that day changed everything we do now.

Eliza went crazy with Photo Booth

Eliza saw Mike’s recent Photo Booth extravaganza photos and wanted to make some of her own, so she did.
