I exited social media early in 2023, and while my quality of life in general improved, I did miss a small number of people who I interacted with there. One of them is Joanna Pocock, a British author who I interviewed on my podcast twice (here and here), and who posted photos to her Instagram that I truly appreciated. She has a great eye for composition and her work is really worth looking at closely. Occasionally I posted my own photos especially for her. Some were call-outs to her subject matter, which often included scenes of urbanity and decay, and others were simply my attempts at creative arrangement I thought she would dig.
Had I still been on Instagram this year, I would have tagged Joanna on most of these. Some were taken specifically for her (many of the black and whites), and others jumped out at me as I reviewed this year’s roll. Someday I hope to take a walk around London with Joanna, taking pictures together, but in the meantime, I have these to share. They are arranged in order by date, from earliest to latest. Enjoy!
