Keeping with my established schedule, I should have made a National Geographic post today, but my current issue is October 2013, which is the one with the words “The Photo Issue” in big letters on the cover. And there are a lot of photographs in the issue — several fold-out pages of them. This means that I spend about a quarter of my reading time wrestling with the magazine, and since the fold-out pages are the thickness of several individual pages, it also took me a while to find my place, until I figured out that I should probably use a bookmark.
I worked on the introductory pages for several days and have just finished the first actual article, which is not to article-y. Well, you’ll see what it is when I make my post, which should be right on schedule for my next National Geographic post, on January 6.
