Yes I know it’s been done before. In fact, quite a few papers have their very own photo blog where they share their favorite staff and wire photos. Now you can add the Telegram into that mix. At best, it will provide interesting visuals on a consistent basis as well as provide an outlet for photographers to showcase their work (until a more in-depth multimedia landing page is created). At worst, it helps to keep my eye fresh even though I am not shooting by scanning through the AP wire every day.
My editors are hoping to keep the focus of the photo blog within the confines of the Midwest, but that may prove difficult as, in scanning the wire the past two weeks or so, I saw mainly sports and single news images.
