I decided that in 2012 I’m going to focus more on my walking blog. I started That Jolie Girl Walks last January as a project to get me walking more. It worked. I love the combination of photography and walking. The main goal is walking, so I take pictures as fast as possible.
I love the simplicity of this blog. I decided to only use one Hipstamatic setting (Pistil film, John S lens) on my iphone, because I liked that look, I knew how that lens worked, and I wanted to make sure my pictures would turn out. I don’t edit any of the pictures. I also post pictures in the order of my walk with the exception of the first picture. I write about pictures if I feel there is something to say. Other times I’ll post pictures with no text. The number of photos varies with each walk. Sometimes I happen upon lots of amazing things; other times, not so much. I always post at least one picture to mark that walk.
The ease of posting really helps make this blog a reality. Everything about the entire process is fun and I get the benefit of talking long walks. It’s a win-win. I have a button on my side bar, so you can easily access my walking blog. I hope you check it out!
