Blog Housekeeping: The Pink Posts

Got here from a review link?
Then the pictures are probably pink!

At one point during the Covid times, I took some pictures of books but something happened (don’t ask me what, understanding the photography for this blog is the outer limit of my abilities). My assumption is that I messed up the settings on my friend’s camera, or that something weird was up with the lighting. It made all the pictures look fine on the little camera screen, but really turn out very pinkish.

To show you these two William Alexander book covers is probably the simplest way to explain it:

While the cover of the first does have more blue tones and the cover of the second does have more pinkish/purplish color, you can clearly see from the background that something is different.

I have a lot of pinkish book photos for reviews that are completely written.

Some of the books I could probably re-photograph, some have since been used by my family and are no longer in nice condition, or have been passed along to others already. Some of the books I did re-photograph and there was a technical error (me) and none of those photos were even slightly useful. Also, while I have a passion for book reviewing and try to put out quality content, there’s a limit to how much time and energy I’ll spend doing the same thing over again (especially when it’s not reading a book but related to blogging).

So I decided to just write this post to explain, and then as relevant reviews or pictures go up I’ll just add a note directing people to this to explain why the pictures are so very pinkish. Yes, this is going to bother me, and maybe some of you too, but at least it will get my review queue moving again.

Thanks for understanding.
