I've created a new blog, called Street Level Japan, to continue writing about photography. You can visit it at http://street-level.mcvmcv.net. This means I'm going to stop updating this blog, for the time being.
If you are subscribed to the Feedburner feed of this blog—which is probably most of you—there is no need to do anything to receive the posts on Street Level Japan. I will swap in the new feed shortly, and put up a test post to make sure everything's working. If you are not subscribed to the Feedburner feed, you can just visit the new site to sign up.
I am not planning to take this blog down, as I still like the things I wrote about here. After all, as the red herring of the title suggests, I had no real direction for this blog when I started it about two years ago. Early readers may recall posts about a fantastic goal by Leo Messi, thoughts about Rodolfo Walsh, Don Nelson and Walter Benjamin, and an enduring photograph of Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson which still brings in the hits from Google Images.
About seven months after starting the blog I made it about photography only, but I obviously still think about all those things. I think if MCV MCV is to have a future life, it will probably have to do with something a bit more academic, like more translations of Argentine writers.
I've been a bad blogger for a while, but I proved to myself over the summer that I could write five posts a week indefinitely. I'm looking forward to blogging a bit more, my new layout at Street Level Japan is very inviting to me. Thanks to everyone who read this blog, see you soon!
