The Hobby

Posted on June 3, 2012

I don’t know why I take photos. Blake Bergen, photographer, photojournalist, and scattered blogger (he has, like, 8 blogs), declares photography his passion because it “highlights the little details of life that often go unnoticed”. Or something along that line. It’s been a while since we discussed it, walking lackadaisically along some rural Chinese path in Little Likeng. Pretty much everything in that village was photogenic, especially its tiny peculiarities. If they weren’t, Blake found a way to make them so. The kid has an eye. So he’s named a reason behind his passion. It’s a simple one but it’s fair. Simple beauties are overlooked and photography gives anyone a chance to be a true Romantic, a modern William Wordsworth. But replace the quill…

This is Blake. He’s good at a lot of things like photography and making fun of me, but his true talent is accents. His old Japanese man is flawless. He’s majoring in exercise science (?) and he’s a travel veteran, having gone through southeast asia a couple summers ago. During that trip, he had to race against time to get his brother the antidote for a poisonous monkey bite. You can’t make this stuff up! He has plans to get me arrested in North Korea. See if he succeeds by following his blog.
