My friend Joel Rotenberg has started a blog- he’s one of the most thoughtful snapshot collectors I know and probably writes better about them than anybody. He’s posting once a week on Mondays and if you have any interest in snapshots beyond “hey, cool photo bro” I suggest you make his blog a regular stop.
