Sunday is off-topic day around here. I occasionally write little off-topic editorials that I originally decided to call "Sunday Sermons." The rub—aye, the rub—is that there's no reason why you'd want to read these things. You come here to read about photography, not what I think about…oh, say, energy policy. So I promised to label them clearly so you could avoid them if you choose.
Well, here's a little problem: I can't stand that name any more. Sunday Sermon? A lame cliché of a name for an off-the-cuff editorial rant if there ever was one. The connotations aren't even right—it implies religiosity, and I'm non-religious, and it implies a lecture from on high, whereas most of my little mini-essays are more like ruminative, meandering chats with a slightly curmudgeonly uncle.
So I've decided to change the name. From now on, if you don't mind, I'm going to call them "
Sunday Walks in the Park." (Unless somebody has a better suggestion.)* I spent no time or effort coming up with that name either, and, sure enough, it's no more clever or original than the old name. But at least it's a little more accurate.
So, in case you're one of those who don't want to read my armchair philosophizing on topics far afield from photography, "
Walk in the Park" is henceforth the danger signal. You have been warned!
So anyway, here's this week's Sunday
Walk: it's called "A Million Millionaires." And remember, it's not about photography.
*UPDATE: Matthew Allen has suggested "Open Mike," which is perfect, and which I hereby adopt. From now on, the Sunday off-topic pieces you'll want to avoid if you only like reading about photography will be labeled "Open Mike." Thanks to Matthew!
