My name is Fred. I am a freelance copyeditor who spends my off hours dabbling in photography and fretting. I had a brainwave about a visual mood journal, and In the Blue Glow emerged from my forehead barely formed. Stick around to see what happens.

If you’re wondering how I manage to get my photos so consistently blurry, I’m happy to let you know that it’s a mix of bad eyesight, manual focus, and a Lensbaby Velvet 56.

For fairly clear photos of lots of cats, visit my Flickr photostream. For fewer cats, go to 500px. Also, Instagram and Twitter. Or, for more blurry pics of me, see the Flickr account I made just for overflow from this blog. Then, there’s the cat blog: Simulacra Vitae.
