I think photography has killed what little ability to write I used to have.

You seem pretty articulate to me - maybe it's not that you can't, but that you just don't want to?

You're probably right.... at the very least it takes my focus away from writing, and it's such a different mode of expression. Before, when I was walking though Vienna and saw something, i started to mentally compose a livejournal entry. Now I either take a picture, or, if I don't have a camera with me, at least think of it in terms of a photo, mostly. So, sadly, I seem to get out of practice with writing/verbalising....

I'm sure if you ever need or want it, it'll be there... I couldn't stop writing even if I tried, I'm more addicted to it than to coffee :-) But I know how you feel, sometimes it feels like such an *effort*.

When I post a picture I really like.... not to go all eine Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte, because, really, as often as not it doesn't, it depends on the respective quality of both the picture and the words - and I've no idea what, if anything, my pictures 'say' to someone else, but it's a kind of statement, an expression, with a kind of *satisfaction* in it that recently I haven't come close with words. Does this make any sense at all?

It makes perfect sense. But then, you usually do :-) That's exactly what it's about, I think, that kind of satisfaction, that rich feeling, that *click* it makes somewhere between your heart and belly and head when you know you've said what you needed to say in the best possible way.

No *I'm* not making any sense...

That's it, exactly! And, see, that's why you're the writer. :)

Which is, probably, why we make such a good couple. That and unlimited amounts of fangirly squeeing...

That, too. *g*

What I wanted to say is that it has replaced writing as a favoured mode of expression ...
