Thomas Orand lives only a minute away from me, in our quiet neighborhood in the Suginami ward of Tokyo. I see him every so often outside of the local grocery store, or run into him when we’re both biking around. We stop and talk for a while about photography—Thomas also uses a Hasselblad, and has set up a darkroom in his apartment, which is amazing given how small it is.
Recently he set up a new blog for color photos, using the default Blogger template. I think this feature is worth noting because the default Blogger template—and I feel this infinitely more than with any other service—lends a real air of simplicity to a site. It fits the photos which he’s posting there.
