The Passion Of The Boing Boing!

Hey now! The photo below (click to humongify) of a passion flower and carpenter bee that I snapped on the way to work this morning (and posted to L.A. Metblogs) was found by Mark Fraunfelder and posted on Boing Boing. Dang Dang!


Too bad he thinks my name is “Will Mann.”

Even more too bad are the coupla buzzkillers out there in the comments accompanying the Boing Boing post who have little better to do than feel it necessary to negatively critique the image — one of whom is apparently a professional photographer named Deniz Merdanogullari who shows his mastery of the artform at the following website.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
